Earlier this week Victoria Beckham announced that she would be selling 600 pieces of her fashion archive through TheOutnet.com... with proceeds going to mothers2mothers a charity which aims to iradicate the transmission of HIV between carrier mothers and their unborn children. As part of her exclusive interview in this week’s issue of Grazia, Victoria spoke us through some of her iconic outfits, taking a trip down memory lane...
Antonio Berardi Dress
First up was this black and white fine checked dress by Antonio Berardi which she wore back in 2008. Victoria says, ’I can so remember wearing this dress – I’d just had may hair cut short and I was out with David and Tom Cruise and we went to support Katie on Broadway in her play.'

She then talked us through the Prada mini dress, which she wore in 1997. ‘That little Prada white dress is from SpiceWorld the movie!’ she explains, ‘It was the thing back then. I wore it in the scene when we were on Top of the Pops - I think we were singing Too Much and I was in that little dress with my brown bob.’

Anna Sui Dress
Another beautiful piece to make it into the sale is this grey Anna Sui dress. Victoria recalls wearing it: ‘I was in Paris on my own – I think I’d been to some shows – and Mr Valentino invited me to his beautiful chateau for a dinner he was hosting with Donatella Versace. It was winter time and freezing cold. We got to his chateau, which is very, very impressive, and I got out of the car in the mist wearing these delicate little Manolo Blahniks and literally ran across the cobblestones, holding up my skirt. It was this real Carrie Bradshaw moment.’
