The laid back mood of Victoria, Victoria Beckham stretched from the label’s easy dresses to the designer’s sweet arrival with baby Harper. Marked by a sun-bleached pastel palette, the “Californian street style”-inspired designs included colorblock drop-waist shifts, belted sheaths, and safari-ready minis. The prints were equally dreamy, with free-spirited birds, clouds and buds popping up throughout the show. Each look was completed with a pair of Walter Steiger flatforms—in blush, orange and black—that further embodied the label’s fresh and carefree attitude. See our favorites in the gallery!
New York Fashion Week didn’t stop for the weekend! Ashley Greene gave us the scoop on Donna Karan’s DKNY collection (hint: that gorgeous gown is made of neoprene), while Victoria Beckham got emotional when taking her final bow. Click through to the gallery for all the fashion gossip!
Victoria Beckham‘s spring collection was filled with sexy, fresh, and wearable pieces with unexpected details. Sheer fabrics and cutouts in the mostly black and white collection (already a spring trend) revealed beautiful, whisper-light lingerie which we hope will turn into a full scale lingerie line! Not surprisingly, there was a dress for every occasion—from sporty weekend wear to sexy curve-hugging cocktail numbers. What was a surprise was the footwear, which was mostly chic Manolo Blahnik flats (not a heel height you’d associate with this stiletto-loving designer). David Beckham, ever the supportive husband, sat front row snapping photos of his favorite looks. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

Talk about ending the Olympics on a high note—The Spice Girls reunited for the Olympics Closing Ceremony last night! And their performances of “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” left us wanting more, more, more. “We did it!” Victoria Beckham—who looked more posh than ever—Tweeted to the rest of the group. “I love you girls so much!” We loved how they gave a modern revamp to their signature ‘90s looks, from Ginger Spice’s Union Jack dress to Sporty Spice’s athletic getup. (And Scary Spice Mel B loved her look so much, she wore it to the after parties!) Take a look back at each girl’s signature style, from ‘90s to now in the gallery.
Love can be a lucrative business! Just ask any of the couples who made Forbes’s latest list of highest-paid pairs: Beyonce and Jay-Z took the top spot this year (their platinum albums and tours raked in $78 million), while Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady came in at a close second, with $72 million worth of modeling and sports contracts. And power couples Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ($45 million) and Victoria and David Beckham ($54 million) came in right behind them, rounding out the top four thanks to their fashion lines, blockbuster movies, and more. We adore all these lovebirds—their relationships are so strong, even though they’re so busy! But we still want to know: Which super-successful celebrity couple is your favorite? (Everyone has one!)
