Victoria Beckham in NYC

Posted on February 06, 2013

Vicki Posh is feeling very coordinated right now. She’s having a major matchy moment, if you will.


Victoria Beckham lands at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City in a Jil Sander dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti suede boots.

Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Boots

We think perhaps some contrast was needed where the boots hit the hem.

That should totally be a thing.  Like “when the rubber meets the road,”or “when the shit hits the fan,” but for fabulous people.”Where the boot hits the hem.”


The boots and skirt are a bit much paired together, in a Star Trek: The Next Generation kinda way, but choosing a baby to bring out the blue in the sleeves was a smart choice. Nice accessorizing there.

    You took the words right out of my mouth about the baby accessory! I think Vickie looks cute, although I HATE the sleeves. I don’t mind the matchy-ness, though.

    • Louise Bryan

      I love the arm candy, and the sleeves, and the boots even, tho maybe the boots with a different outfit.  *sigh* to be 20 years younger and a whole lotta pounds lighter.  The money could be fun, too.

  • Gorgeous. I love the boots and don’t mind the matchy. The Beckham kids are all little David clones, aren’t they?!

  • Frank_821

    Valid point. The boots are still pretty fierce. Funny the color combo on the dress she’s wearing so much more appealing than what the model is wearing. The model looks much more drab. But then again she ain’t posh spice with a matching baby accessory

    • judybrowni

      However, lugging a baby around while tottering around in 6-inch spike heels ought to be considered child endangerment along the lines of leaving it alone in a car, without cracking a window.

  • Jeebus, even the glasses have a violet hue.  lol

    • another_laura

      And the (perfect, of course) manicure is right there with the dress.  I wonder if she has an entire crew with her on the plane to do her up for her photo ops arriving at JFK.  What a life.

  • Sobaika

    She is always so chic and put together. But while a part of me appreciates that the little baby was a carefully coordinated part of her outfit, it’s still a very strange and bizarre thing to me.

    • Vickiefantastico

      I admit, I have coordinated my kids’outfits to mine before! It’s weird, yes, but fun.

      • lovelyivy

         I have family members who do this ALL the time- one cousin has 3 sons who she’ll dress in matching polos, their Dad will also wear a matching polo, and her dress/outfit inevitably also picks up the color of the polo. I don’t know whether to admire or fear her!

        • Vickiefantastico

          Maybe both! 🙂

    • Airkisses

       The baby looks like a fashion accessory in this picture. “Today I think I’ll wear my the Zanotti boots, Jill Sanders dress, and matching Toddler.”

      • DeborahJozayt

        The most expensive accessory you can possibly own. It even has its own room.

      • Dhammadina

        Adorable child. That lower lip goes beyond accessory.

    • amf0001

      When my son was about that age,  my mother commented that he and i were often wearing the same colors,  in the photos I sent home to her.  And I realized that she was absolutely right and that it had been totally unconscious (not that I think it was unconscious here,  just that mothers think,  hmmm blue… and then everyone is wearing blue.)

      • GSMSF

        That happened to me too.  Maybe Posh is actually dressing her own child?

  • I love it, except for the fuzzy dead animal on the baby.  

    • Nancy Dunn

      That baby wearing fur is wrong in so many ways if it is real fur. I really do not like this woman. At all. And now I like her even less than before. What a schmuck.

    • lovelyivy

      I assumed it was faux, similar to about 1/3 puffy winter coats being worn around NYC these dats. I really hope it’s faux!

  • minnye

    I feel like I should totally hate those varsity jacket sleeves, but I think that’s a kickass dress.

  • Carrieanno

    I’ve come around.  Love her.  Cutest arm candy ever.

  • Introspective

    ditto on not minding the matchy here. the boots are fierce. harper makes for the most adorbs accessory for real. her cheeks + her reference to posh’s navy sleeves are pretty spot on.

    wishing i could emerge from jfk so coordinated. last time i flew with my son i was a disheveled, hot sweaty mess in old jeans and a white shirt with a stain somewhere on it. ah how the other half lives…

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Don’t love the boots.  But, she looks great.  Mostly I am coveting her hair – so lush!  What I wouldn’t give….

    • DTLAFamilies

      Just drop $500 and you can have hair like that. It’s extensions. She probably paid a lot more than $500 but no need for mere mortals to go overboard. 

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        If it was a 1 time $500, I’d do it.  But I can’t commit to spending like that to keep it up. Ever tried them?  Is it worth it? 

        • DTLAFamilies

          I’ve never tried them but I have friends who have and they look great when they’re done well. But you have to have them touched up every six weeks so it’s expensive and a PITA.

        • DTLAFamilies

          I’ve never done it but I know two women who have and their hair looks great. If they hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t be able to tell. I think you have to go to the salon every six weeks for maintenance but the extensions can last for months if you take care of them. Of course, you really want to go to someone good and to commit to maintenance or you’ll end up looking like Britney Spears.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    That’s some Members Only sleeves going on there. 

    • PeaceBang

      I was thinking Scott Baio sleeves, so yea.

  • RzYoung

    Hmm, the sleeves remind me of the scorpion jacket in Drive

  • filmcricket

    I think I prefer the “runway” version of the dress. That, paired with the boots, would be fierce.

    This woman has popped out four kids and apparently wears five-inch heels everywhere. I can’t bear to think of the joint and lower-back pain she’s going to have later in life.

  • love mini vicky!

  • E. D.

    I don’t mind this.

  • Cathy S

    The only part I like are the boots. And the baby.

  • As a fellow mother to a toddler, I should just throw in the towel and wear all the yoga pants.

    • ersmom

       I’m in yoga pants right now. Don’t care.

    • DTLAFamilies

      It gets better when they’re older. Now that my kid is in kindergarten I’m going to the gym, getting my hair colored and buying new clothes. I’m not rocking heels anymore but at least I’m not in sweats with spit-up on my shirt. 

      Also Posh = Rich = Nannies & Household Staff. You can’t compare yourself to folks like that. 

  • Claudia Fernandes

    It’s the new V trend: baby pop of colour

  • Wow. She’s matched not only her boots to her dress, but her kid to her sleeves, and somehow it’s not reading “Barbie” to me. I don’t know how she does it.

  • LOL, I love you guys so much. A baby really is the must-have accessory! I agree that the red on red is a little much but Ms. Posh pulls it off like no mortal could. Plus her hair is amazing. Total girlcrush.

  • BrooklynBomber

    That dress is too long for boots.

  • I kind of love it.  Also, I’m trying to imagine myself getting out the door with a young toddler looking that fabulous (and clean), and I’ve come to the conclusion that she is an alien.  A superhumanly stylish alien.

    • Nancy Dunn

      Limos and first class travel make life a wee bit easier than it is for the rest of the 99%.

    • formerlyAnon

       I will bet money she had at least one additional adult on the flight for every two children who traveled with her. Part of whose job was to make sure the kids didn’t interfere with Mommy disembarking photo-ready. (For all we know, she may have traveled in yoga pants and changed for the airport.)

  • prettybigkitty

    Love the dress.   Want it in my closet.

  • ChaCha_70

    Am I the only one that can’t get over how HUGE that diamond is on her finger?

    • I do the same with Mariah Carey on American Idol. Drink every time she flashes her obnoxious ring! Last week the ring flash count was up to 9, and all we had left was tequila.

    • Nancy Dunn

      I think every time her husband cheats on her, she gets a bigger ring. (snark)

      I thought this was a jumpsuit, until I saw the dress on the model. I don’t like it with the boots. Traveling first class sure lets you look nice on the airplane!

    • kimmeister

      I think it’s an exact counterweight to the baby in her other arm!

  • aahlife

    The baby wearing fur is wrong on so many levels.

  • BayTampaBay

    Is that her real hair or does she have extensions?

  • Her little girl is such a yummy little dumpling. I want HER outfit.

  • MilaXX

    Victoria who? All I see is a baby in an adorable little coat. That’s a look I’d love to see.

  • The boots are matchy because they elongate the silhouette.  I do not think this chick is very tall, and wearing a contrast color would “break up” the line.   

  • Fabulous! I have a secret love for matching.

    • kimmeister

      My love for it is not-so-secret!

  • Annabelle Archer

    Never, ever change Vicki Posh, I heart you deeply. 

  • decormaven

    I’m not usually a fan of the matchy, but those are some killer boots. The entire look is working, HTT. That’s the healthiest her hair has looked in a long time.

  • Laylalola

    I don’t have a problem with the matchy-matchy here, it looks as good or better than a matchy-matchy black dress with black boots.

  • VeryClaire

    Ugly dress, good accessories. I love how the small child is the same size as many starlet’s purses!

  • formerlyAnon

    Cutest accessory ever.

    I like the boots so much that I cannot hear your fashion-expert quibbles.

  • nannypoo

    If you like your women to look crabby and too thin then she is the ideal woman. I like the outfit. The letter jacket sleeves are sort of ironic, although I don’t think that’s what she had in mind.

  • stubbornthoughts

    The matchy-matchy doesn’t bother me because that is an amaaaaaaaazing color on her and her baby is fucking adorable. Two thumbs up, goddammit.

  • Qitkat

    I love the entire ensemble, bebe and all. I’m sure I never even looked half this stylish when I was the former mother of 3 toddlers, or mother of 3 former toddlers, not all at once of course, they weren’t triplets. HA! She is so well put together it curdles my brain, even now, knowing never ever ONCE did I coordinate my kids to myself. Or occur to me to do so. I think I need some coffee. Caffeinated. I WANT that dress, very nice for mom AND grandmom wear.

  • snarkykitten

    Looks like a bathrobe

  • NDC_IPCentral

    What’s with the predilection of models to pose in bow-legged stances?  See the model here as only one of many shots we’ve seen for some time.  In my judgmental opinion they look infantiilized and don’t present the shape of their legs attractively.  I’m not into the crossed legs/gotta go! pose either, but this splaying out at the ankles, which is particularly obvious here, looks bad.

    • 4JJ

      Interesting observation. I wonder if it’s to avoid the dreaded possibility of their thighs meeting at the top?

      Wait, no, just looked again at that model. No way in hell her thighs would meet, unless she squeezed them together.

  • luciaphile

    I can’t stand her, but that is one cute baby.

  • RocknRollmom

    That is a great airplane dress.  Take the belt off and you have a great nightgown.  Of course Ms Beckham flies first class so no reason to sleep in one’s clothes, but easy on and off.  If that is her real hair, I really truly hate her.  But I am going with the fact that there has to be a boatload of expensive extensions in there.  I don’t want to even think about how much that little coat with the real fur collar costs for that adorable baby or how one gets baby snot etc out of real fur.  Baby is definitely Daddy’s girl.  I think it works—even the matchiness.  Makes me think I should go put on my similar Stuart Weitzman red suede for the day.Not quite as fierce as Zanotti but fierce enough for me and my more pedestrian life.

    • meowing

      Per Google, the Zanotti runs a mere $875.  Well, not that one could run in high heel boots, anyway.  And I doubt that Posh runs anyways.  Cute baby anyway.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    It’s very cold in NYC — how is she not wearing a coat?

    • Judy_J

      I’m sure she was whisked away immediately in a heated limo.  No having to stand around in freezing temps for Miss Vickie.

  • Nancy Dunn

    Is that baby wearing fur??? If so, Victoria Beckham is even more of an a-hole than I previously thought, and I thought she was quite an a-hole before.

    • n a

      Totally agree!! Ugh!,

  • shelley514

    I wouldn’t call this look “matchy”, it’s more “monochromatic” if you will. 

  • Belvane

    I’m all about the matchy. Monochromatic looks can be just as interesting as a “pop of color” — the whole thing becomes a pop of color! And in this case, it makes her look taller. 

  • Solfish

    I LOVE that you use Star Trek references in your fashion commentary from time to time! Special props today for making it TNG!

  • greyhoundgirl

    I love everything you wrote in this post.

  • ojosazules

    Mummy looks fabulous, her boots are fabulous, and wee one is adorbs.

  • Vicki-Spawn totally has mama’s gift for not smiling in front of cameras.

  • marilyn

    Looks like she passed on the pouty look to the next generation.

  • jw_ny

    The baby needed the burgundy accessory more to offset all her blue too.  They compliment each other well. 

  • She wore this same look a couple of months ago and I had the same thought about the colour non-stopping effect with the dress and boots. Only people as rich as VB can use a baby as an accessory, seen as they can hand it over when the going gets messy.

  • mewesley

    The first thing I thought of was woe to the person behind her at security as she had to remove those boots.  Or maybe she changes into them after deplaning for the “arriving” shots.

  • Little_Olive

    I don’t care for any of it… but she makes it work. It’s like she has absolutely zero doubts.  

  • f_yeah_marie

    Harper is so cute…and their middle son Romeo is a Burberry model now.

    • formerlyAnon

       Of course.

  • Lilithcat

    I have boots almost exactly like that.  Except for the price tag.

  • samo_samo

    She looks stylish and comfortable. 

  • unbornfawn

    No way I’d want to carry a baby in those heels.

    • formerlyAnon

       If I tried to, Child Protective Services would be involved.

  • PeaceBang

    I have to give in and just love this woman.

  • poggi

    That is another level of accessorizing and fashion coordination–but it seems like I have seen several female celebs w/ kids whose family outings are clearly color and style coordinated. 

  • throwaneyeonthis

    I think of it as a monochromatic statement versus matchy-match.  Monochromatic styling is a career girl’s friend!

  • Lilak

    It’s a little thing – and I can’t explain it – but what bothers me most is the contrasting trim on the arms.  

    The boots don’t make me twitch … (and spoon’s at the ready for eating up baby!)

  • butterflysunita

    I love those boots in that color.  

  • mmc2315

    I likey-likey the matchy-matchy!

  • Heh.

    I personally love a good color blocking, but never wear it in fear of looking too Star Trek.  If Posh can’t do it, no one can.

  • teensmom99

    I want that dress.

  • Zippypie

    Oh wow. In the first shot, I didn’t see the separation of dress and boot and thought this was a whole Snuggie look.  Now it’s just Counselor Troi.  She really needs a beaded headband to complete the look.

  • That’s why I don’t like tall shafted boots, I’ve come to realize. Especially with skirts or dresses. Most of the time, the boots make the person look like they have elephant legs. Some part of the actual circumference of the legs wearing ’em has to be shown, like with skinny jeans at the very least.

  • Stubenville

    Burgundy suede tall boots? Hasn’t posh seen Kinky Boots?

  •  It looks like a robe with no opening in front! Not for me…

  • margaret meyers

    That is an ugly dress.  No wonder the runway model looks pissed-off. I’d be mad, too.

  • warnerave

    gorgeous! both mom & baby!!

  • PrunellaV

    Most fashionable mommy in the world. The adorable H7 has her mother’s pout.

  • Seth Lucas

    I love it, wouldn’t change a thing.

  • She’s gonna need to tote a much bigger child if she’s going to beat Heidi.

  • Michelle Nguyen

    You’re spot on with the TNG matchy-matchiness, but at least she’s not showing Klingon-esque cleavage. @_@

  • catlady10

    My babies were always dressed to match me.  It wasn’t deliberate; I could only come up with one look per day…..

  • OrigamiRose

    I can’t get over the glasses.  My mom wore those, in the eighties.  My mom is not Posh Spice.

  • Aurumgirl

    That dress really is nothing to write home about, but it is better in a colour (the sleeves still look boring as hell to me).  The boots are the only reason she looks as good as she does, so I am not at all bothered by the matchy-matchy.  

  • libraangel

    I think it’s o.k. except I wish the hem was longer and covered more of the boot. Kid doesn’t like it though.

  • CeeQ

    “…..but choosing a baby to bring out the blue in the sleeves was a smart choice.”

    I am positive that this is exactly how Vicks makes her accessorising choices =D 
    How about the outfit on the bubs? That kid is all kinds of cute!

  • Elizabeth Silverstein

    This post is spectacular. I will now be using “Where the boot meets the hem” as often as possible in regular conversation. 

  • guest2visits

    Those are some great boots, but TLo is right about the quantity of matchy-ness there at the hem.
    Little Harper is looking alot like Dad here.  I wonder if it’s mink.

  • ccm800

    Little one is giving better bitchface than momma and momma isa damn pro at bitchface. SO SO CUTE!
