Designer 101: Victoria Beckham
Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova, wear some pretty amazing pieces from some very major designers (both established and up-and-coming) on "The Face." Since the countdown to the premiere, is officially upon us (34 days until "The Face: The Fight to Make the Final 12" special on February 5!), we are prepping for the show by taking a look at the designer labels you'll be seeing on our gorgeous supermodel coaches. Let's kick off the tutorial with girl bander turned award winning designer, Victoria Beckham. (She was always our favorite Spice Girl, by the way.)
Designer: Victoria Beckham
Who Actually Designs the Line: Victoria Beckham, of course.
As Seen on "The Face:" Posh's close-fitting sheaths perfectly flatter Karolina Kurkova's enviable glamazon frame and show off her stellar legs.

Backstory: Née Victoria Adams, this Brit needs no introduction really. Let's fast forward through the now-designer being a part of the biggest girl group in history (please reunite again, Spice Girls) and her fairy tale marriage to dishy soccer football star David Beckham. We all know the story. Victoria began dabbling in fashion during the early 2000's, first with a collaboration with denim line Rock & Republic and then launching her own dVb Style jeans line in 2007 followed by a high-end sunglasses line. Of course she was always entrenched in fashion—walking the runway for Roberto Cavalli, modeling for Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs campaigns, covering Vogue and just being ridiculously trend-setting alongside A-list besties like Katie Holmes.
It was inevitable that, in 2008, she'd launch her own high-end line known for its impossibly chic, body-con dresses that were instantly embraced by her bold name celeb friends. While some were skeptical, the fairly recent designer earned her street cred and was crowned "Designer of the Year" at the annual British Fashion Awards just three years later. She can basically do anything she wants these days, like cast her own adorable daughter in her runway show or design a $29,000 handbag.

The Investment: Go with a black and white shift with scalloping, like Michelle's (the color combo is huge this Spring) for $645 (netaporter.com) or a persimmon-hued body-con gown, inspired by Eva's, on sale for $1,153 from $2,845 (netaporter.com). If you're looking for some Posh on a budget, there's the diffusion line Denim by Victoria Beckham and these skinnies are priced at a friendlier $158 (yoox.com).
