Victoria Beckham (born Victoria Caroline Adams on April 17, 1974 in Harlow, Essex, England) is an English fashion designer, model and singer. Victoria was born to an affluent family, but she reportedly didn’t like being driven to school in her father’s Rolls Royce. At age 17, she pursued her interests in dance by attending the Laine Arts Theatre College, before moving to London three years later to become a dancer. When Victoria answered an ad seeking energetic and hard-working women in 1993, she wound up auditioning for an all-female pop music group that later became the Spice Girls. Victoria, dubbed Posh Spice, was joined by Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. Together, the group found international fame and success. When the Spice Girls went on hiatus in the early 2000’s, Victoria pursued a solo career as a singer, releasing her self-titled album in 2001. During that period, Victoria was the subject of the first of five television documentaries about her life. Victoria also began pursuing fashion as a career in the earlier 2000’s, appearing on catwalks and modeling for a number of high profile fashion lines. After launching her denim label, dvb, in 2006, Victoria started to focus solely on fashion. She started the Victoria Beckham clothing line in 2008. It continues to find financial and critical success.
