Victoria Beckham is a fashion entrepreneur and ex-singer.
Her career started when she became a member of the notorious girl pop group Spice Girls.
She has several highly successful fashion lines and has built an empire out of her life-long passion for having her own clothing brand.
The Origin Story
Victoria was born in Hertfordshire, England, and lived in an affluent family.
Her parents, Tony and Jackie Adams, have three children: Christian, Louise, and Victoria.
Victoria first realized her dream of being a star when she saw the movie “Fame” for the first time when she was eight years old.
From ages eight to seventeen, Victoria attended the Jason Theatre School in Enfield, London, then went to pursue her dancing dreams, becoming a student at the Laine Arts Theatre College in Surrey.
Three years later, after completing her studies, she moved to London in hopes of having a career and becoming a professional dancer.
She found her big break in 1993, after auditioning to become part of a new all-female pop group.
The Spice Girls
The Spice Girls and their personas took the world by storm.
Victoria was known as “Posh Spice” and was one of five girls that formed the pop group.
Their debut album Spice, which was released in 1996, reached no. 1 with “Wannabe” and sold twenty million copies worldwide.
A second album was released in 1997, but even though it was still successful, it did not come close to the level of Spice’s success.
Victoria and the girl group also starred in a movie about the band, which had the same title as their second album: Spiceworld. The movie reached almost $30,000,000 at the box office.
Spice Girls broke up in 2000 after Geri Halliwell left and following the release of their third and final album Forever.
Victoria’s career as a singer wasn’t over yet, however – she embarked on a solo career with an album and book release in 2001.
She joined the group on a reunion tour in 2007. She did not join the 2020 comeback but still profited from the sales of tickets and merchandise connected to the Spice Girls.
She has stated that singing has never been her true calling. Victoria has always had a love of fashion and, since becoming famous, has been considered by many as a fashion icon.
Fashion was always Victoria’s true calling: “I dreamed of doing my own clothing line even before I was a Spice Girl,” she said after she published a book That Extra Half Inch, which was a style guide.
She also created a line of jeans, handbags, and a popular range of sunglasses under her DVB brand.
