During her rise to fame with 1990s pop group the Spice Girls, she was
dubbed Posh Spice, a moniker first coined by the British tabloid press.
Since the Spice Girls followed separate careers, Beckham has dabbled
with pop music, scoring four UK Top 10 singles as a solo artist. Her
first single to be released, "Out of Your Mind", reached number two in
the UK Singles Chart and is her highest chart entry to date. During her
solo music career she has been signed to Virgin Records and Telstar
Beckham has found more success as an internationally recognised and
photographed style icon. She has had a significant career in fashion,
designing a line of jeans for Rock & Republic and later designing
her own denim brand, dVb Style. Beckham has brought out her own range
of sunglasses and fragrance, entitled Intimately Beckham which has been
released in the UK and America. In association with the Japanese store,
Samantha Thavasa, she has produced a range of handbags and jewellery.
In addition, she has released two bestselling books, one her
autobiography, the other a fashion guide.
In her television ventures, Beckham has had five official documentaries
and reality shows made about her, some of which include Being Victoria
Beckham and The Real Beckhams. Her last documentary to date was
Victoria Beckham: Coming to America which documented her move to the
United States with her family in 2007, but it was poorly received by
American critics. She since made a cameo appearance in an episode of
