For someone who’s constantly being slated for her fashion sense, Victoria Beckham sure seems to be influential. Marks and Spencer, for instance, are claiming that her purchase of the black leather dress shown above has boosted their sales by 11.5%, and are describing it as "the hit of the season". Almost 30% of the first order was sold via the M&S website before they could even get the dresses onto the shop floor, and it’s been selling out ever since – all thanks to Ms. Beckham, apparently, who ordered a size 8 and had to have it taken in to fit her.
Is it really that special, though? I probably wouldn’t wear a leather dress myself, so I’m not the best person to judge, so tell me: are you one of the thousands of women who’ve bought this dress from M&S? And if not, do you want one?[via Daily Mail]
