Victoria Beckham: A Style Icon?

I often go to celebrity gossip blogs, not to get the latest gossip, but to see the clothes the celebs are wearing. Victoria Beckham is one of few who is always seen stylish, whether she's out shopping, playing with her kids, on the airport or just anywhere. Victoria is a successful business woman who has, to name a few, written a fashion book; designed a jeans, handbags and sunglasses collection; and launched her own fragrance.
Victoria has said that "whether you've got £20 to spend in Top Shop or £2,000 to spend at Gucci, looking good isn't about money, it's about style - and style never goes out of fashion." But the 33 year old doesn't think of herself as a style icon, "I like to wear things that suit me, that flatter my shape, but I would never say I was fashionable,” and she rates Kate Moss as her fashion idol "I just love Kate Moss. She’s my fashion idol without a shadow of a doubt. I’m a big fan of hers- I’ve always thought she looks fantastic.”
A style icon is someone who will be remembered for her style for decades, someone who is a trendsetter and isn't afraid to experiment with her style. The question is, will Victoria's style still be rembered in 50 years on? I think only time will tell, but for now she is more of a follower of fashion and trends as opposed to a creator of them.

I've been keeping an eye on her style for a few months now and it looks like the Spring/Summer collection from Giambattista Valli is one of Victoria's favourites as she has been wearing at least four outfits from the collection.
