Victoria Beckham (née Adams) rose to prominence after being a member of '90s girl group the Spice Girls, selling over 55 million records worldwide. In 1997, she started dating footballer David Beckham after meeting at a charity auction.

The couple swiftly announced their engagement and were dubbed Posh and Becks by the media. The couple married in 1999, and are parents to sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and daughter Harper.

For the past several years, Victoria's career as a fashion model and designer has been noteworthy. She sealed her status as a fashion icon by appearing on Vogue three times in one year. In November 2011, Victoria was awarded the 'Designer of the Year' gong at the annual British Fashion Awards.

She has reformed with the Spice Girls in 2007 for a successful reunion tour, and most recently in 2012 for the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.
