Style Icon feature - Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham is a modern day style icon; the Hepburn, Jackie O or Monroe of her time. She is one of the Worlds most photographed women and reinventing herself as a fashionista, following the abandonment of her solo music career, has done her the world of good, and seen her celebrity status soar. With the DVB Beckham brand firmly established; with denim, eyewear and frangrance collections already on the market, Victoria has succeded in something she is not only interested in - but somethings she's good at. Really, really good. See www.dvbstyle.com for more on Victoria's recent design work and current collections.
Here, we take a look at some rare, some familiar and some unseen shots of Victoria in the fashion world, a world she has created for herself from an honest passion for fashion.
