Celebrating 10 years of the Victoria Beckham fashion brand, Edward Enninful captures a glimpse into the usually private life of Posh Spice herself, and everyone is going crazy for it.
Think of Victoria Beckham and the usual connotations would most likely pop into your head; her infamous straight-faced pout, those iconic sleek bob variations, her petite, slender frame absolutely working any of her chic designs.
But, take a peek at the behind the scenes footage of her cover story and prepare to be taken by surprise.
Maintaining her demure and, at times, sombre facial expressions whilst chiming in Spice Girl lyrics (“this is where two fashion forces join to make something quite incredible. This really is where two become one”), Victoria’s orchestration of the shoot truly is utterly hilarious. After being asked by Venetia Scott, Fashion Director, to bring some of her own looks to add to the shoot, a selection of some of her finest and most iconic styles are hunted from the archives.
From bold Spice Girls looks, including silver space dresses and latex black catsuits, to those WAG days styles, to the Vera Wang gown that saw Posh Spice become Victoria Beckham.
Complete with a ‘juice cleanse glow’ from Charlotte Tilbury and some nostalgic Spice World peace sign poses, this shoot must undoubtedly be one of Victoria’s most… iconic?
The covers themselves show the family side to VB we’re more familiar with in recent years but for the first time show the full Beckham family in a shoot together. Both covers show Victoria the family woman - a mum and a wife. Showing the natural, playful and happy side to the Beckhams, one image features Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper playfully jumping around Victoria and David with Nerf guns, whilst Olive the dog joins in the fun.
Behind the paparazzi stories, the pouts, the money and everything else we associate with the Beckham clan, they’re just a big, happy family.

Beyond the paparazzi flashbulbs, masterful personal branding, social-media savvy, and fashion and sporting prowess, lies the day-to-day business of family life. And the Beckhams are just like any normal family unit – water pistols and all. Read the full interview and cover story in the October issue of British Vogue, hitting newsstands this Friday, September 7.

Amen, Victoria Beckham, you have certainly brightened up our week!
And, Edward, what a work of art this shoot really is.
