Celebrity Fashion, Style On Trial

Star Style on Trial: Victoria Beckham in Giambattista Valli at the launch of her ‘Signature’ scent in Manchester


Despite the criticism she receives for her figure, her fake tans, her nails, her pout… just for being alive, basically… most of the time we have to admit to finding Victoria Beckham’s dress sense pretty inoffensive. OK, she’s had her moments, but sometimes her outfits are downright covetable. And then, other times, they’re like a mullet. We’re speaking literally here, because yes, that appears to be fur on Victoria’s back, and given that a furry back is pretty much the last thing we’d want for ourselves, this dress has puzzled us – all the more so because it’s so perfect from the front.

This is from Giambattista Valli’s Autumn/Winter 08 collection, and we think Vic must have been going for the “angel sent to earth” look here – albeit an angel with a furry back. The combination of slim shift dress and swept-up hair is very Audrey Hepburn, the silver heels add a modern touch and… then there’s the furry back. Which, to be completely honest, just makes us want to take a razor to it, although, to be fair, we think Vic is actually making it work.

What say you, readers? An angel sent to earth or your idea of fashion hell? Tell us in the comments…
