While her time at New York Fashion Week has come to a close in an official capacity—Victoria Beckham is a fashionista on any New York street appears on.
On Monday, the Spice Girl-turned-designer ditched her usual tight frocks for slim black pants, and oversized wool winter coat by her own design and flats. FLATS?! We could have sworn she sleeps in heels! The mom of four was photographed wearing black and white, two-toned lace-up oxfords by Saint Laurent ($790) as she returned to her hotel during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
This definitely isn’t her usually bodycon—style and we like the masculine touches on the very feminine beauty.
According to Fashionista.com, the designer spoke to the Parsons’ Dean of Fashion, Simon Collins in front of a crowd of 800 about her latest collection.
“I’d love to do menswear at some point, absolutely,’ she said. “I get very inspired by menswear — [my spring 2014 collection] was very inspired by men’s tailoring, and there’s the boy-meets-girl fashion message throughout the whole collection,” the 39-year-old said on Sunday night.
With this menswear-inspired look, it appears as though she is definitely taking a page from her own fashion book!
On Tuesday, the slim stunner opted for a white kilt, a burgundy cashmere sweater and matching red pumps. The Brit had been doing a bit of shopping at Comme des Garcons before leaving NYC for her London home. The star who is widely known for very fitted silhouettes—is definitely trying something new this A-line white look.
We can’t wait to see what else is in store for the oh-so-posh lady!

Appearances may be deceiving. To the outside world—popstar-turned-designer Victoria Beckham looks like she has glided her way into her charmed life. But the former Spice Girl has finally opened up on her struggle to become a well known and well-respected fashion designer. In a new collaborative documentary with Skype, entitled “Five Years: The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story,” David Beckham’s lady love reveals what it took to become accepted in the cut-throat fashion world.
“I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer, I was trying to do something that no-one had really done before,” she said. “I’ve always had to work hard for everything.”
And work hard she did. With all the attention to detail, she has earned the respect of the world’s most stylish tastemakers such as Vogue UK editor Alexandra Shulman, who says: “I think she has proven herself to have a really successful fashion brand. I don’t think there is anybody that would doubt that.”
At the 2011 British Fashion Awards, Victoria says she was inspired watching her mom Jackie when she was a child, saying: ‘‘I’ve always loved fashion and I was that kid who used to watch my mum get ready and just think ‘wow you look amazing.’”
And while you would think that the oh-so-posh designer’s life looks like glittering and glamorous parties night after night—the 39-year-old mother of four paints a very different portrait of her life as a career woman, admitting that she spends most evenings, “curled up in front of Skype speaking with my studio in London - but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
At one point in the doc, Victoria Beckham CEO Zach Duane tells the cameras: “We have now created something that is meaningful and that people are paying attention to. Once you know the story behind anything it’s more compelling to connect with.”
And compelling it is! From her flawless style, to her amazing body and picture perfect family—we are completely enthralled by all that is Victoria Beckham—and we love this rare glimpse at her fabulous life!

Wanna buy Victoria Beckham’s shoes? Well you can. To help aid the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines, Victoria is donating dozens of high-end pieces of to the British Red Cross in exchange for major charity donations.
On Nov. 8, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded hit the Philippines, leaving a path of destruction across the country. The posh designer and her hottie hubby David Beckham are using their celeb status to help raise money by donating a plethora of their personal pieces from designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo, and Roberto Cavalli.
On the British Red Cross’ website, it says, “Dozens of pieces from the couple’s wardrobe will go on sale this Friday at the British Red Cross shop in Kensington & Chelsea, which specializes in designer clothing. All the money raised will help those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines.”
In addition to the info on the Red Cross’ official website, Victoria is trying to garner attention for the sale by posting pics on her Twitter page. The mom-of-four posted a pic of herself sitting in a box, writing, “Proud to support @BritishRedCross #ShopDrop Donating clothes for #Haiyan survivors. x vb.”
The 39-year-old also sat on a veritable mountain of designer shoes and wrote, “Big clear out of my shoes, on sale tomorrow in aid of @BritishRedCross #ShopDrop x vb.”
Glad to see she is using her excessive amount of fashion to do some good!

A-List duo David and Victoria Beckham both suited up in style for The Global Fund benefit at Apsley House in London on Monday. For the swanky event, the posh popstar-turned-designer decked herself out entirely in Victoria Beckham Collection. Similarly, her footballer stud hubby also donned a black suit and also showed off his new “Victoria” tattoo, written in cursive and on his right hand.
