Beckham sells iconic outfits for charity
Victoria Beckham is selling 600 items from her personal wardrobe to raise money for mothers2mothers, a charity supporting mothers and children with HIV in South Africa.
You can shop the pieces from the comfort of your couch when they go up for grabs on The Outnet this month. Get excited, fan girls!
The one-woman powerhouse has undergone countless style revolutions - from her LBD-wearing stint as Posh Spice, to her Louboutin-trotting, Birkin-carrying WAG days - leaving plenty of memorable ensembles in her wake. There was that 'wrinkly catsuit' she wore circa Girl Power and Viva Forever and the Vera Wang gown from her 1999 nuptials to David.
These days, Beckham's defied the haters to become a celebrated designer, front row fixture and globally recognised fashion icon who favours body-contouring, monochromatic numbers on the red carpet and wedge trainers and baseball caps when out and about.
While specifics remain hazy, we have word the collection will include hats, shoes, bags, jewellery, designer ready-to-wear, costume pieces, coats, ski-wear and one-of-a-kind evening dresses. We are praying to the fashion gods for some serious swag from her zig-a-zig-ah Spice Girls days too.
"Every single piece that I have put in to be sold brought back a lot of memories-a lot of really, really happy memories of myself and David, of myself and the children, of different events that I've been to," Beckham says in a video message. "A lot of these pieces have been made especially for me, by the designers. These haven't all have been bought off the shelf."
Beckham became involved in mothers2mothers when she travelled to South Africa with Anna Wintour for the 'Born Free' project earlier this year. The charity's focus is providing education, empowerment and medications to mothers with HIV and to help them give birth to HIV-free babies. Based on a system of mentoring, mothers are encouraged to support other mothers who have recently been diagnosed with HIV. A well worthy cause indeed.
Get your hands on some iconic gear at The Outnet from August 20 to August 25. The sale is a private sale -with the exception of ten iconic pieces that'll be sold via a reverse auction, including a white Dolce & Gabbana dress from the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards (above)- so make sure you register first if you want to shop!
