Rave reviews for Victoria Beckham

Her singing efforts were always met with decidedly mixed reactions, but critics have hailed Victoria Beckham with almost unanimous high praise for her fashion line. The Spice Girl launched her third dress collection in New York this week and style fans showed the former pop star nothing but love.

A design expert from British newspaper ‘Daily oail’ commented, “She seems to have flexed her fashion muscles to fantastic effect.” Another from the ‘Evening Standard’ wrote, “So accomplished was the cut, so deftly chosen was the fabric and so masterful the execution that it was hard to believe this was the work of a novice.”

Victoria says, “I wanted to push myself but I also wanted to be respectful of my customer. I want her to know she can rely on me… I try on everything. I make the dresses for me.”

The 35-year-old was humble about the compliments, adding, “I know I used to be in a pop group and I’m married to a footballer, but I’m grateful people are prepared to leave their preconceptions at the door and let the dresses speak for themselves.”

Victoria’s previous dress designs have sold out almost immediately after going on sale. This collection, she says, was cut to flatter the figure, with built-in corsets and exaggerated shoulders to “make the waist look smaller”.
