The former ELLE cover star will reportedly be awarded an OBE for her contribution to fashion and humanitarian work in 2017
Their son Cruz’s debut single ‘If Everyday Was Christmas’ might have entered the race to become the Christmas Number 1 this festive season but it looks like the Beckhams have another accolade to celebrate this Yuletide, with news that Victoria Beckham has reportedly been named on the Queen’s New Year’s Honors list.
According to the Daily Mail, the former Spice Girl is expected to receive an OBE for her work in fashion and in charity, a mere 13 years after her husband and former footballer David Beckham received his OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) from her Royal Highness.
It’s reported the 42-year-old broke the news to her brood during a family holiday in the Maldives over Christmas, after a year that has seen her launch a make-up collaboration with Estee Lauder, create a limited edition T-shirt featuring a doodle by her five-year-old daughter, Harper, and bow out of a future Spice Girls reunion with Emma Bunton, Gerri Halliwell and Mel B.
Following a successful pop career, known as ‘Posh Spice’, as a member of the British girl band the Spice Girls during the Nineties, the mother-of-four has successfully segwayed into the fashion industry with an eponymous fashion label and its secondary line Victoria, Victoria Beckham.
The British-born fashion star launched her debut collected at New York Fashion Week in 2008 and has since gone onto to win several awards in fashion for her contributions to the industry including the Best Brand accolade at the British Fashion Awards in both 2011 and 2014.
In 2016, Victoria was also nominated for the coveted Womenswear Designer of the Year award thanks to her popular collections, worn by the likes of Blake Lively, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller and BFF, Eva Longoria.
One question remains – what will she wear to collect her prestigious award?
