Victoria Beckham

Occupation: Singer, fashion designer, model

Born: April 17, 1974 (40)

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 David Beckham after meeting at a charity auction.

The couple swiftly announced their engagement and were dubbed Posh and Becks by the media in 1998. Since then their marriage has been largely admired and they have raised four boys.

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.
