Biography of Victoria Beckham

Victoria Caroline Beckham, who became famous under her maiden name as Victoria Adams, is a British singer, dancer, actress, fashion designer, and writer. She was one of the vocalists of the legendary pop girl group " Spice Girls ", and then made a successful solo career.

It is also worth noting that by 2016, fans of modern fashion associate Victoria Beckham as a businesswoman who has created several collections of denim clothes, sunglasses, and Victoria Beckham's bags are a model of fashion in many countries of the world.


Victoria Adams was born in the town of Harlow, located in Essex, but the girl spent her childhood and adolescence in the vicinity of Broxburn in Hertfordshire. The future star became one of the three children of a successful electronic engineer Anthony Adams and his wife Jacqueline. Victoria has a brother Christian and a sister Louise.


The father had his own business, which brought in huge profits, and the family did not need anything. But the flip side of wealth was Victoria's complete lack of friends among her peers. As a child, she was the object of ridicule and mockery, felt like an outsider, and even every morning she asked her dad to drop her daughter out of the expensive Rolls-Royce, a little before reaching the school gates so that classmates would not have an additional reason for pressure.


As a teenager, Victoria Beckham watched the musical "Glory" in the theater and wanted to become famous and popular herself. She persuaded her parents to send the girl to high school not to an ordinary general educational institution, but to the Jason Theater School, where she learned the first basics of stage skills and studied pop vocal. Then in college, the girl studied dance and choreography and at the same time performed in the semi-amateur group "Persuasion".

In the spring of 1994, fame bursts into Victoria Beckham's biography. She successfully passes the casting and joins the female pop group "Spice Girls", with which she will thunder to the whole world.

Career and creativity

In the group "Spice Girls", the singer appears under the name Victoria Adams, because then she was not yet married. By the way, the band was originally called "Touch", but the new name was more consistent with the scale of future popularity. By the way, each member of the group received a personal nickname from fans. Victoria fans called "Posh Spice", that is "Chic spice", as the image of the girl - bright short dresses and catchy, attractive makeup.

Victoria Beckham, Spice Girls

The very first single "Wannabe" became number one on both sides of the Atlantic and set a rotation record on radio stations: in the first week, the hit was played more than 500 times. Three more songs from the debut album "Spice" made it to the first line of the charts: "Say You'll Be There", "2 Become 1" and "Who Do You Think You Are". Later, "Spice Up Your Life" became very popular and especially the ballad "Viva Forever" from the third album "Spice Girls", which was called "Forever". But in 2000, the group broke up.


Victoria Beckham begins her solo career and releases her debut single "Out of Your Mind", which, as time will show, will become the most popular song in the artist's work. The composition peaked at number two in the UK charts, but the subsequent hits "Not Such An Innocent Girl" and "A Mind of Its Own" also reached the top ten.


The singer's only officially released album, Victoria Beckham, proved to be a commercially unprofitable venture. To rectify the situation was called a new disc "Open Your Eyes", but because of pregnancy, Victoria Adams-Beckham canceled the release of the collection, as well as the promo-single "My Love Is For Real" and finally terminated her musical career.


Today, the star is better known as a style icon. She has an excellent career in the fashion industry, launching her own Victoria Beckham brand - bags, dresses, sunglasses, jewelry, and even the Intimately Beckham line. A line of cosmetics "V Sculpt" has been developed especially for the Japanese market, and in cooperation with the automobile company "Land Rover" Victoria has created her model of the car "Evoque Victoria Beckham Special Edition".

Together with husband David Beckham, they developed and released a collection of denim casual wear that was in great demand around the world.
