While I have every faith that Victoria Beckham is a lovely person who’s kind to babies and small animals, I’ve always felt her fashion sense left a lot to be desired. Yawnsomely matched to the hilt designer combos do not actually show an innate sense of style, in case you were wondering, and in my book, matching your shoes to your bag (unless they are brown or black) is an appalling sartorial crime that makes the baby Jesus cry. If you add a matching belt, then the holy trinity calls the fashion police.
Anyway, Roland Mouret Galaxy dresses in 56 colours and YSL Tributes in every shade, pattern and heel-heights aside, I like her new hair. It SUITS her. It is something she has done to herself that genuinely makes her look good. The crop has given her face a new dimension: attention is drawn from her nose – her least flattering feature – to her eyes, which sparkle and pop in a way they didn’t when her hair was longer. She looks more approachable too, more fun, and less serious. Oh, and really, really pretty.
So, well played Posh, well played.
