Happy Birthday, Posh: See the Style Icon’s 40 Most Memorable Looks

Spice Girls fans, hold your breath – Posh just turned 40. Now, while her days of choker necklaces and spaghetti straps are long gone (for now), Victoria Beckham has managed to carry that simple, timeless, “little Gucci dress” aesthetic from pop stardom to businesswoman to motherhood. In honor of her big day, elle.com has catalogued 40 of her most memorable looks – and they’re, not surprisingly, much more versatile than her Spice World getups.

For as long as this celeb has been in the spotlight, she’s seldom let her style guard down. As in, every time she wears flats, it’s breaking news. (In a quick Google search, I counted all of two times. In 17 years. No biggie.) With the possible exception of her no-flats rule, we should all take cues. Because if this is what 40 looks like, sign me up.

Check out ELLE for all 40 of Beckham’s most memorable looks.

The Duchess in DVF: Kate Middleton’s Dress Sells Out in Minutes

Between her amazingly good-looking family (little George included) and her enviable sense of style, it’s no wonder everyone wants to be just like Kate Middleton. So much so, in fact, that the outfits she’s worn while on tour Down Under have been selling out like wildfire. First up? Her Tory Burch dress during a New Zealand playdate. Then there was the flawless Erdem coat while visiting a children’s hospice. And most recently? The ultra-chic navy and white Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress she wore to tour Australia’s Blue Mountains on Thursday.

6 Ways to Organize Your Messiest Spaces

Don’t be intimidated by spring cleaning – notoriously untidy rooms can be tamed. So say goodbye to overflowing laundry piles and out-of-control dresser drawers, then follow these room-by-room tips for some much-needed relief.

How to Organize Messy Spaces

Laundry Room
1. Keep spaces looking clean by pouring soaps into separate drip-free canisters.
2. For crisp stacks, use a folding board on dress shirts and towels.
3. A laundry cart with supply drawers and ironing surfaces will straighten things up.

Closet
1. For easy-to-access outfits, arrange clothes by category and color.
2. Use baskets for off-season clothing or easy-to-store items like scarves and accessories.
3. Have a walk-in? Make it double as a dressing space by hanging a mirror.

Our Organize & Decorate for Spring, Room by Room Boutique opens Thursday, April 17, at 3PM ET.

Yes, the undisputed King and Queen of the Music World – or just the world in general – are rumored to be going on tour together this summer. While the duo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, sources tell Page Six that Bey and Jay will perform at 20 stadiums beginning in late June. There have even been whispers about a July 4 concert in NYC. (Fireworks and this “Crazy in Love” couple? Count me in.)

If their latest Grammy Awards performance was any indication, this show is sure to be one for the books. Clear your summer schedules accordingly.
