Born in Essex, England, Victoria Caroline Adams first caught the attention of the media and public as Posh Spice, a member of one of the most successful female musical groups in the world. "Wannabe," the first Spice Girls' single, went to number one in 31 countries; the band becoming an instant global phenomenon, especially with pre-teen and teenage girls.Four number one hits later she met future husband, sports legend David Beckham, and together, they became one of the UK's most photographed couples. After the Spice Girls split in 1999, Victoria and David married, their young son, Brooklyn, was the ring-bearer at their wedding.With her solo singing career going nowhere, Victoria decided to follow her passion for fashion. Her rail-thin figure and taste for classic elegance made her the perfect choice as a celebrity promoter for designer Karl Lagerfeld. No one can deny, however, that it has been her often-volatile relationship with her husband, that has kept her face in magazines - usually for all the wrong reasons.
