Victoria Beckham is an international style icon. She is one of the most photographed women in the world, appearing frequently on the cover of International Editions of Vogue. She has the connections to wrangle a front row seat at the Runway Show of any designer in the world. And, money is truly no object in pulling together her wardrobe.
In a world with so many choices and so few limits, where do you start?. Where does Victoria Beckham get her style inspiration? Well, Victoria revealed the secret in her recent book, That Extra Half an Inch:
My own inspiration comes from fashion icons of the last century: Grace Kelly, Jackie Onassis, and my muse-for-all seasons, Audrey Hepburn. Breakfast at Tiffany’s must be my favorite movie of all time, and you can still wear anything from that today. And what do these women have in common? Simplicity. The understanding that it’s all about shape – not just body shape, but the silhouette – the hat, the sunglasses, the bag, the shoes. Looks that have staying power.
We share the same inspiration as Victoria Beckham, and we love her statement on simplicity and staying power. For the stylish woman, the essence of simplicity is an emphasis on quality over quantity and timelessness and versatility over trendiness. Nina Garcia, of Project Runway fame, expands on these ideas:
Today’s fashion cycles are getting shorter…there are more trends and more choices….Don’t be the woman who gets caught up on these fads. You should be the woman who has a personal style and who is not afraid to wear your favorite pieces repeatedly. Remember….when you invest deeply in pieces that you love and will love season after season, these items become yours. They show the world that you know who you are. You are no fashion victim. You are an original. Start dressing like one.
