Style Files: Victoria Beckham Spring 2011

Victoria Beckham presented her Spring 2011 ready-to-wear line yesterday morning in New York and we must say: the girl done good. Victoria has rarely put a wrong Brian Atwood-clad foot forward during her young career as a designer, turning out dresses that are classy, sophisticated and very popular with celebrities.

In addition to dresses and eye-wear, Mrs. B debuted a line of handbags with her collection. All were highly structured and took inspiration from some of her favourite handbag designers, including Hermes and Loewe.

Also of note were the custom-made Brian Atwood heels each of her models sported. Victoria tweeted yesterday that their rose gold colour was inspired by her favourite Rolex. Don’t we all have shoes inspired by our favourite Rolex? Next season may we suggest shoe colour inspired by Jesus Navas’ eyes?

Join us after the jump as we rank five looks (in footy terms, natch) from VB’s latest offering.

Hattrick – We would do just about anything to float away in this gorgeous cloud of a dress. If that meant never looking at Zlatan’s thighs again then so be it. That’s a serious sacrifice, no?

Penalty Kick – Just like a PK should be, this dress is almost a sure thing. We love the dusty pink colour and the little pleated skirt. The one cause for concern – much like a patch of slippery grass or a damn good keeper, is the questionable nipple situation. Remind us to ask Michael Ballack for pointers on keeping them under control.

Free Kick – Like a free kick, this dress could go either way. The cheery marigold colour should sail right over the defensive wall, but those suspended-in-time drapes could easily have you fizzing right over the goal into row Z. We love this dress, but can’t help to think that it looks perpetually caught in a wind storm.

Offside – So close yet so far. Aside from having to posses the body of, er, a model to wear this dress, the shiny fabric won’t do you any favours in the ‘slightly wobbly bits’ department. Luckily, after your goal is called back you can make good with this little number. Same iridescent fabric, but much more flattering.

Own Goal – There is no way back from this. This is most certainly the equivalent of a terrible miss where you’ve just embarrassed yourself, your team and your mama and there are thousands of angry pissed-up fans hurling abuse at you.

We don’t get the pleats on the full skirt and it the whole thing resembles a bed sheet wrap dress one quickly fashions to answer the door. You know, if all of your clothes had been stolen and you had no other choice. Sigh. If only she had done it with a short skirt….

Click here to check out the rest of Victoria’s collection. Agree with our rankings, Kickettes? What do you think of the bags? And no, we’re not talking about the ones under Victoria’s eyes. She works hard for the money, y’all.

    OMG!! Vicky Bee in this picture seems so tired and.. OLD!!

  2. aps says:

    Her eyes look tragic. No wonder why she hides behind those sun glasses. She’s no ageless beauty

  3. DC says:

    I can count with one hand, and have fingers left over, the dresses I like in her line. I think last year’s line was much nicer. cleaner cuts, better fabric, etc.

    the bag are lovely, though. overall.
    and she needs to rest soon. it’s not a good look on her.

  4. sheila says:

    Glad I’m not the only one who thought she looked a bit on the rough side. The lighting isn’t helping her cause, either. the white strapless is cute, but what more can be done with lines and cuts and color? It’s all been done and everything old is new because designers know that most short sighted individuals will by their product, no matter what the cost, visually or monetarily. They just want to look like they have a lot of money to spend. That’s why the crocodile and the polo pony are on the outside of the shirt.

  5. Kokonut says:

    Missing the wow factor, in my humble.

  6. Cammie says:

    Yeah she looks rough here

  7. Denisea says:

    Pffft! Victoria is no designer, she’s just using Roland Mouret’s designs with her name on it. Please, make her go away, I’m so sick of her saturating the media – no one even likes her!

  8. lilygold says:

    Call me a cynic but does she really really have anything to do with the actual design.Roland Mouret is represented by Simon Fuller as are…….. The Beckhams, coincidence or conspiracy? I like wearing nice clothes and would have loved to have been a Designer but didn't have the ability.Not a clue how to stitch or how to cut material as I have never been trained and neither has VB.Load of old cobblers, all RM's work ,in my opinion.

  10. Karin C. says:

    she looks tired.

    how is that possible????

    love the dresses, very posh.

  11. Steph says:

    I like this collection. That dusty pink one is probably my favorite and the bags look really good. :) As for Victoria, while I like the outfit and all, she looks a bit tired. Guess it’s all the NYFW craziness. Hope she gets some rest after this.

  12. kaya says:

    I want to see the front of the dress with the handbag. That looks cute.

    If for "the offsides", body of a model = zero boobage, I agree.

  13. Any says:

    Jesus Navas eyes would never work as a shoe colour…imagine the injuries caused! I would never, ever look up.

  14. ruby says:

    Shit, she looks terrible. She needs a good night’s sleep and some food.

    • LoveFootballLoveFootballPlayers says:

      Really? I say she looks pretty “healthy” compared to last week’s picture (sarcasm to the highest power). I think this picture is way photoshoped she even looks a little younger. The only thing people sell with her is her name because I can’t imagine anyone wanting to be like her physically. But perhaps the bad lighting is hidding something else and this is the best picture they could have gotten. I don’t dislike her but I can’t like either what she does to herself even if it doesn’t affect me personally.

  15. tammyv says:

    Wow.. she looks bad. She has looked sick for weeks now. Get Well Soon

  16. Jackie says:

    Her outfit is nice… that is all

  17. Kylie says:

    I really do like her clothing line. The dresses remind me so much of Roland Mouret designs, which are so classic looking. Love the dress she’s wearing, but she looks so tired already and fashion week is really just getting started! Please take care of yourself, VB!

  18. Mel says:

    She looks like an empty shell, no passion in her eyes. That is worrying!
    She is physically present, but mentally checked out.

  19. Raley says:

    I love her collection! I’m a big fan of dresses so I love to see all the different variety she has.

  20. C16 says:

    LOVE the handbags!!!!

  21. loveu2much says:

    lol @ jesus navas inspired shoe color. but id rather it be dresses. a dress that would remind you of jesus navas's eyes is a dream come true

  22. Zlatanista says:

    I´m still surprised that she is so good at what she does. I´m not that into fashion, but i love the white dress, and the penalty kick dress. I´m also happy and amazed hat this post includes mentioning of the two hottest footballers i know, Jesus and Z(l)atan.

  23. suzie says:

    I love the yellow dress and I would kill for the white strapless one. She did a great job.

  24. LuvinBale says:

    I adore VB's style. I thought here collection was fantastic- I would absolutely love to own one of her dresses.

    Agree with Kickette on the bed sheet made into a dress. Maybe if it was a different color? Not flattering.

    I applaud VB for not hiring models that were a size 0. Not that they weren't still skinny bur it's a step on the right direction,

  25. Red_Girl says:

    this collection got lots of praise but to me is her weakest so far.

  26. kumiko m says:

    she looks tired in that first picture. very baggy eyes. must be from all the planning of the show!

    • DebS says:

      Yeah, the first thing I noticed was how horrible she looked, particularly in light of the recent video she shot w/David in the elevator. She was stunning there.

    • Lisa says:

      You noticed that too eh? Although I do like what she is wearing in that photo. I’m suprised her people didn’t fix the unflattering lighting.

    • Leah says:

      I agree. That was the first thing I noticed.. She looks like she could use a hearty meal and a nap.

    • Zlatanista says:

      Yeah, but at the same time more human.

      • Tania says:

        True, but I still can't believe that she uploaded such an unflattering pic of herself… Call me shallow, but if that was me in the picture, I would never ever put it up online for everybody to see (and it's not like millions of people want to see my picture).

        • Zlatanista says:

          No, you´re right, it is unexpected from a person who seems to be very aware of her apperance. You´re not being shallow :)

  27. zztop says:

    finally Navas gets some kickette love. long long overdue. I doubt his eye color could be replicated, it is a wonder of nature!
