Who hasn’t got a batch of clandestine photos hidden in the bottom of their chest of drawers? No – we’re not talking about 50 Shades of Grey momentos – instead, those toe curling snaps of your youth, which only your mum could adore. Luckily for us non- celebrities those dodgy perms and styling combos stay locked in the past, only to be revealed on pain of death. So we can spare a little pity for Victoria Beckham, who has today seen a host of unknown shots which were taken when she was only 18, resurface for all and sundry to see.
We see Mrs B, or Victoria Adams as she was known in those pre-Beckham days, working all manner of catalogue-esque poses. Modelling with a chair, wearing a leather waistcoat (cringe) without a bra (major cringe) and smiling while sporting a leopard and ankle boots – a far cry indeed from the immaculately styled glamour-puss we know today.
We have to say we think the young Victoria looks extremely sweet – and we were particularly surprised to see her wide smile and super-cute dimples. Of course there were also a fair share of moody numbers – they didn’t call her Posh for nothing. Photographic proof of your youthful dreams may be embarrassing now, but we reckon one day she’ll look back and it will remind her how far she’s come from the ingénue lensed in these pictures. Have you kept embarrassing pictures of your youth? And what would it take for you to show them in public? Let us know all about your cringy snaps below!
