Posh Boots: Fashion Forward or Fashion Fail?

Victoria Beckham, Bergdorfs.Victoria Beckham broke out a pair of Gucci over-the-knee boots in New York at Bergdorf Goodman’s Fashion Night Out.

Much to discuss here, no? The Giles Deacon mini dress with thigh boot combo is a tricky one to pull off. After all, there is a fine line between street style and street walker. We’re not quite sure if this works as a signature look for Mrs. B, but we are all over those booties. (And hello? Compared to this alternative, the style winner is clear.)

  2. Becca (mrs lampard!) says:

    she pulls it off, but its only because shes victoria beckham.

  3. ilovediouf says:

    love that dress.

    not so sure about the boots

  4. Victoria says:

    The make-up reminds me of the Addams family.. the tan is awful.

    The outfit is ok. Somehow, she makes it work, I think.

  5. Dutch says:

    The boots are a big NO NO

    Dress Thumbs up, am liking the colour an all

    Makeup/Tan- Hidious, the tan is killing me tough, and her face is too shiny

    Hair- looks rather boring and looks thin

  6. Flowie says:

    weird..she’s not a fashion icon..coz she doesn’t try somethin’ new

  7. Eternal Dreamer says:

    Actually I really like her dress; it shows a little bit of unusual risk. It is kind of 80s throwback, no? However, with those boots, NO!!!!

  8. Fer_Lahm says:

    Hair, good
    Boots, naynay
    Dress, no comments

  9. sweet_dreamz says:

    Wait…there’s…or you could look at…

    AHHHH forget it, I can’t find anything to say about all of THIS!

  10. Linkedup says:

    The boots are a winner, the dress is ok for wearing at an outdoor cafe around the Med but it’s wrong with those boots. Once again, high profile ladies should remember that less is more where fake tan is concerned. It can completely destroy a look.

  11. FootballerChick43-&q says:

    Hate the boots, love the dress, hate the makeup, love the hair.

  12. MUfcMarie says:

    Umm… I'm crying.

  13. Faiiiiiiiiil. Even the makeup looks horrible

  14. Ella says:

    Her makeup and fake tan look terrible. The outfit is pretty cool and I’m glad her hair is growing out a bit. BTW, did you all see this already?

    They’re banning the WAGS! :(

  15. littlemissfoggy says:

    Someone needs to get girlfriend some face powder or oil blotting sheets – her face is shine city. I do love Posh though.

  16. Der Lutscher says:

    gosh. looks like a call-girl. and not in a good way.

  17. aristeia says:

    Love the boots! Maybe not the shiny parts so much, but still… they’re pretty cool. The dress, I’m not so sold on.

  18. Lamps' babe says:

    I love those boots,but maybe on someone taller they'd look better,am I wrong?Her dress is horrible,her skin,her make up..it's a mess

  19. Allyra says:

    All the fashion magazines are screaming about over-the-knee boots, but i think that Victoria took it waaaaaaay too far.

    Yeah, it’s a big fashion fail…

  20. Mariam says:

    i like the boots. i would prefer them in suede, maybe? but i don't like the dress… not the hair or make-up. i agree, she looks like a hooker

  21. teamtoto says:

    fashion fail…imo. i really don't get this woman…

  22. Lana says:

    Love the boots, but the whole outfits looks hideous

  23. mariap says:

    The whole outfit from the eye make-up to the boots just screams uncomfortable AND trashy. Check it out, she wears that and someone to the left has a pair of Nike's from the 80's!

  24. imhereforthenando says:

    This is quite possibly one of the worst outfits I have ever seen. Ew.

  25. Merel says:

    Fail with the boots. The dress can be okay.

  26. Zo.acm says:

    YUCK! It doesn't matter if they're Gucci or the perfect fall shoes. She looks terrible and matching her tan with the colour of her dress isn't helping her case.

  27. Boston Red says:

    She looks amazing. Thigh highs are numero uno for Fall.

  28. Mingermongermoo says:

    Awful, awful, awful. Sorry, Posh, i think a fail this time. All that money spent makes you look very cheap indeed.

  29. Lucy says:

    she looks like a hooker
