The Beckhams went out for dinner in London this week to celebrate David’s 48th birthday, and their chosen looks had a touch of the old school Posh and Becks about them. Think leather (David), sky-high hemlines (Victoria), and black-out sunglasses.
Little black dresses have always been Victoria’s style signature, and she wore a mini blazer dress from her brand’s upcoming autumn/winter 2023 collection, which has a boxy, oversized fit, statement shoulders and white stitch detailing. She styled the outfit almost exactly as it was worn on the runway, with black fishnet tights and towering black high heels, finished off with the Victoria Beckham chain clutch bag in black.View moreGoff PhotoDavid and Victoria in 2023…Shutterstock… and in 1999.Thanks in part to the birthday boy’s biker jacket, their outing echoed one of the celebrity couple’s most iconic date night looks of all time: the matching leather jackets and trousers they wore to a Versace event in London in 1999.
Victoria laughed about that outing in a recent conversation with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, revealing that the outfits that helped to propel the couple to fame were actually something of a fashion faux pas. “Myself and David turning up to a Versace event in matching Gucci leather! Wearing the wrong stuff, but owning it,” said VB. “Back then I didn’t know any better, I didn’t know the fashion industry, and so there was something so sweet and naive about the fact that I didn’t care, I just expressed myself in that way.”
