POSH IS A CUT ABOVE THE REST…January 27th, 2009
“I am obsessed with this dress!” were Roxy’s first words on entering the office this morning, thrusting a torn page from NW magazine on to my desk.
The dress in question? A sleek and sexy number, elegantly fitted with a plunging neckline in a vivid shade of red. The wearer? Spice-girl turned style aficionado Victoria Beckham. My mission? To track down the designer and inform Roxy immediately!
As I browsed the internet for clues (the fashion blogosphere was similarly obsessed with the dress) I was in for a surprise – this was no Valentino, Marc Jacobs or Roland Mouret garment – this dress is straight from Mrs Beckham’s eponymous collection, designed by the lady herself.
Inspired by the glamour of the 1950s and intended to embrace the female form, Victoria says her dress collection has been a ‘lifetime in the making’. She wowed the fashion pack last September at New York Fashion Week with the launch – ten styles that create a sleek and sophisticated silhouette and are accessorised with a trademark rose gold back zip “so you don’t have to dive into it and mess up your hair and makeup”.
Fresh from critical acclaim and with yet another fashion forward hairstyle (the pixie crop has grown into a softer style) Posh is set to release her second collection, featuring the much coveted red dress. The collection is proving to be as elusive as Victoria herself – the small list of stockists including Harrods and Bergdorf Goodman does not stretch to Australian shores, so our only hope is to track online stockist Net-a-Porter.
We’re all in agreement that Roxy will look fabulous in the dress and we’ll have a photographic update once we’ve tracked it down!
