Childhood

Victoria Beckham (Victoria Caroline Adams before marriage) was born into a family of an electrical engineer, whose income was sufficient to support his wife and three children comfortably.
Despite the fact that Vicky lacked nothing, her childhood was far from peaceful: she was constantly bullied at school. Victoria truly blossomed only at home: she constantly put on performances, changed costumes, experimented with hairstyles, sang, and took photographs.

After graduating from the ballet class at school, Victoria Adams went on to study dance and modeling at the Laines Arts Theatre College. The course was easy for her, but the teachers did not see any special talent in the girl. After college, Vicky had many auditions and castings, fashion shows and even advertising shoots, but the girl dreamed of something bigger.

Music Career

In 1994, Victoria accidentally saw an audition notice in "The Stage" newspaper for a female pop group. She easily passed the auditions and joined a group initially called "Touch", later renamed to "Spice Girls". The group also included Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Geri Halliwell.

For two years, the girls prepared to conquer the world, worked on their vocals, danced, and selected their repertoire. The producers put the future celebrities under quite strict conditions, making them work very hard without the opportunity to perform, which led the members to break the contract and go their own way.

In 1996, the four girls found producers and released their first single "Wannabe", followed by their debut album "Spice". The group immediately became popular, and the album sold 20 million copies worldwide, leading to the "Spice-mania" that swept the world until 1998.

Victoria was given the nickname posh spice by fans and the press, which means "luxurious spice". This was due to her excellent taste in clothes, her unique style, and the fact she only wore outfits from famous brands.

However, the success of the "Spice Girls" was just the first step in Victoria Adams' career. In 2001, the group disbanded, but by that time, Vicky had already started her solo career.

Life After the Spice Girls

In 2000, Victoria Beckham released her solo single "Out of Your Mind" in collaboration with Dane Bowers. The following year, she introduced her solo album "Victoria Beckham."

Simultaneously, Victoria began promoting her own brand. Her participation as a stylist and promoter helped her husband David frequently appear on magazine covers, become a trendsetter for men's hairstyles, and feature in advertising campaigns.

Music took a back seat as Victoria started developing her own brand. In the early 21st century, she debuted as a model at Maria Grachvogel's show during London Fashion Week and later became the face of Dolce & Gabbana and Rocawear.

In 2004, Beckham signed a contract with the "Rock&Republic" label, known for jeans, and created a limited collection for them. Her design debut was successful, leading to the development of a new collection under her own brand logo "DVB," short for David Beckham.

Under this label, she also released women's and men's fragrances and body cosmetics.

Two years later, Victoria Beckham wrote a book titled "That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between," discussing how to maximize one's natural attributes. The book became a bestseller and was hailed as a "new fashion bible."

In 2007, as David began playing for an American soccer club, the family moved to Hollywood. In America, Victoria released the reality show "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America," then reunited the Spice Girls to record the single "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)." After farewell performances, she announced this as the final point in her singing career.

In 2008, Victoria showcased her first collection of evening dresses at New York Fashion Week and concluded the year with the release of the "Signature" fragrance. Beckham's new collections were annually seen on the runway, and in 2011, she began producing her own handbags.

Victoria Beckham's Personal Life

In 1999, the young woman met her future husband, footballer David Beckham. Her friend took her to a Manchester United match, where she met David after the game, and they've been inseparable ever since. Their firstborn son, Brooklyn Joseph, was born four months before their wedding.

Victoria gave birth to three more children during her marriage to David: sons Romeo James (2002) and Cruz David (2005), and daughter Harper Seven (2011).

Victoria has five tattoos, three of which are in honor of her husband: a Hebrew inscription that reads, "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine; he browses among the lilies" (Song of Solomon 6:3), David's initials, and the date of their seventh wedding anniversary. All these tattoos are matching ones. Victoria also has five eight-pointed stars on her lower back, symbolizing the Beckham couple and their four children, plus the Latin inscription "De Integro" (meaning "from the beginning") on her wrist.

Victoria Beckham Now

During the pandemic, Victoria and David Beckham contracted COVID-19. This occurred in early March 2020, but the couple carefully concealed their illness. Furthermore, the star couple admitted that during this period, they travelled extensively and interacted with people, so the risk that they may have infected their friends was relatively high.
In June 2020, the Spice Girls embarked on a nostalgic tour again, but Victoria decided to decline. Having full rights to the group's royalties and fees as a full-fledged member, Beckham received a million pounds for a series of concerts in which she did not participate. As reported by lenta.ru, this is a fifth of the advertising revenue, licensing agreements, and branded product sales of the group.

In September of the same year, Victoria introduced a new collection of her brand. However, due to the second wave of the coronavirus, the show had to be conducted at home. Immediately after the event, Beckham posted a photo with her husband and three children, captioning it, "My beloved and only guests this season. I love you very much."
Despite Beckham's efforts to stay afloat during the coronavirus, her business suffered significantly from the pandemic - Victoria had to take out a loan of 6.4 million pounds sterling. The total loss of her company over the past few years amounted to more than 50 million dollars, pushing her company towards bankruptcy.

In 2023, the Beckhams appeared in the documentary "Beckham," dedicated to the success story of the legendary footballer. A funny incident occurred during the filming, which went viral on social media and became a meme. Victoria told reporters that both her husband and she come from the working class. As she was saying this, David peeked into the room where the interview was taking place and made his wife admit that her father drove a Rolls Royce when she was little.
