What it’s REALLY like to wear a VB dress

Victoria Beckham

We have been fans of the Victoria Beckham dress line ever since they debuted earlier this year. And we aren’t the only ones: they have an A-list following and regularly sell out as soon as they hit stores – they only hung around Selfridges for a couple of days before they were all snatched up. But no-one wears them better than VB herself, with her super-svelte figure and super-high heels. Over the last few weeks as she’s appeared around the US filming American Idol, she’s been showcasing a number of her AW ’09 designs, from the bustier Giral dress to the now infamous Carmontelle – which has also been seen on Elle Macpherson. But what’s it like to actually wear a Victoria Beckham dress? Well, as we had some sample dresses in the office for a story we’re doing in the magazine, we decided to quickly slip the Carmontelle on. Well, we say quickly but it took longer than we thought – and we needed some help to zip it up, but once on, well, wow! The fit is amazing. It is cut so well that it hugs the body and instantly improves posture – no chance of slouching in this dress, no wonder VB always looks straight as a board. She describes them as 'modern' CHECK, 'luxury' CHECK and ‘workaday’ HMM…that means Vic thinks that these dresses are suitable for everyday. Now, while walking around the office lapping up compliments was one thing, sitting at a desk to type was almost impossible. The thought of popping out to Covent Garden to buy lunch, running (or even walking quickly) to a meeting was a definite no-no. Work wear – maybe Victoria’s work, but not ours for sure. But if ever we had a £2,095 to spend on an amazing cocktail dress – where sitting wasn’t required – this would be top choice.
