Victoria Beckham smoulders on the cover of Elle Uk March 2013 dressed in Burberry. In the 12 page spread Victoria delves into her fashion line, Victoria Beckham Collection, and her band’s latest project ‘Spice Girls’ Viva Forever’ a musical launched in London last month. Victoria Beckham is also set to launch Icon, a new capsule collection of dresses. Victoria created the line in response to demand for her sold-out dresses, which are regularly worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria and Blake Lively. Icon is launching online in February to tie in with the eagerly-awaited relaunch of victoriabeckham.com.

This will be the designer’s first foray into e-commerce, with accessories, denim and a special selection of pieces from the Victoria Beckham line edited by Victoria herself, available to buy online. With a commercially successful and critically acclaimed label (despite what the naysayers predicted), Victoria Beckham’s fashion career is definitely an enviable blueprint for any young designer. As well as hardwork and perseverance, “it’s also about recognising the importance of combining creativity with commercial viability,” she explained.

Catherine Baba is a Paris based Australian stylist who is the queen of bold statements. Baba is a street style favourite notorious for arriving at the Paris Fashion Week shows on a bicycle wearing the latest designer heels. Her love of vintage pieces acquired in flea markets means she is often seen in turbans, kimonos, catsuits, furs, arms full of bangles, long tassel earrings and 1930’s dresses. “This obsession with old clothes made my mother hysterical, especially since she spent her time sewing my conservative pretty dresses, but it is at garage sales in Sydney that I began to find my freedom” Catherine reflects. She especially adores Yves Saint Laurent and has a collection of over 300 vintage pieces. Baba has worked for Chanel, Givenchy, Balmain and Ungaro and is a freelance stylist and consultant for a number of fashion houses and designers. She has styled some amazing shoots for Dazed & Confused, Vanity Fair and many international editions of Vogue.
