Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham Rakes in $15 Million for Fashion Line
Beckham, who gave birth to daughter Harper in July, saw a whopping 71 percent growth in sales of her Victoria Beckham Collection since last season. Beckham is close to edging out husband David Beckham in earnings for the year — no small feat, given his L.A. Galaxy contract and endorsement deal with Adidas.
Beckham’s sales may have been aided by all of her celebrity fans. Stars like Cheryl Cole, Demi Moore, and model Elle Macpherson have all been snapped donning her designs.
Beckham’s plans don’t end with pricey pieces, either. The singer-turned-designer will launch an affordable line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham, this year. “It’s definitely channelling my inner girl,” Beckham told Sky News about her new line. “I started this collection before I was pregnant and the doctors told me at first I was having a boy. So mainly I wanted to do dresses that I wanted, that weren’t ‘out there’ — and at the same time show that, contrary to what most people think, I do have a sense of humor.”
If rumors are true, Beckham sure does have a healthy sense of humor. The new line is said to be inspired by Emily the Strange, a cartoon girl constantly followed by cats. With a mom as stylish as Victoria Beckham, Suri Cruise better watch her back — Harper Seven Beckham is hot on her trail as the best dressed celebuspawn.
