From the ’90s to Today, a Look at the Beckhams on the Fashion Week Front Row Through the Years

LONDON — David and Victoria Beckham have been attending fashion shows since the ‘90s when the couple started dating.

Simultaneously, David and Victoria were carving out their own style aesthetic with the Manchester United F.C. making headlines for his experimental hairstyles, meanwhile Victoria would always have the most expensive wardrobe as part of girl group Spice Girls.

In 1998, the couple attended Antonio Berardi’s spring show that kicked off David and Victoria becoming permanent fixtures on the front rows during New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.

Victoria made her runway debut in 2000 at London Fashion Week for designer Maria Grachvogel’s show wearing a sleeveless green roll neck with moss green HotPants and brown knee-high boots. She closed the show in a strapless burgundy ruffle dress with a matching choker made out of rubies.

She sat front row at Dolce and Gabbana’s spring 2002 show during Milan Fashion Week wearing a pinstriped suit with lace gloves, pearl necklaces and a black beret.

“At some point, I would love to do sunglasses, and more tailored clothing. I’m working my way up and I’m really enjoying it,” Victoria told WWD in 2005 ahead of her collaboration and fashion show with Rock & Republic later that year held in Los Angeles.

As part of the Spice Girls, the group built a loyal relationship with Italian designer Roberto Cavalli. Victoria would often sit front row at his shows.

Victoria closed Roberto Cavalli’s men’s fall 2006 show in Paris wearing a white dress with a high slit featuring intricate embroidery.

“Paris is my favorite city in the whole world,” the singer-turned-designer told WWD in 2006, who at the time was working on her denim, kids’ and new menswear lines. When asked if she would ever dabble in couture, Victoria said, “Oh my God, that is so out of my league.”

Leading up to 2008 before Victoria debuted her own collection of dresses, she was attending as many fashion shows as possible, from Proenza Schouler’s spring 2007 show with Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher to the Yves Saint Laurent spring 2007 show in Paris with Katie Holmes.

The 10 looks she presented were tailored to the body, made with fabrics such as basket-weave cotton, fine gazar and georgette silks with touches of Indian embroidery and hand-sewn beading.

“The collection was inspired by the femininity and sophistication of the midcentury silhouette. I’ve always been drawn to intricate, seam-detailed designs, as their structure enhances the flattering shape of a woman’s silhouette,” Victoria explained to WWD in 2008.

Since the designer has been showing in numerous fashion cities, from New York to Paris, her family has become her biggest supporters on the front row, as well as attending shows outside of Victoria’s.

At the Victoria Beckham fall 2014 show, David attended with their children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.

Each family member has slid into a corner of fashion. Romeo starred in Burberry’s festive campaign and film “From London With Love.”

Brooklyn, who tied the knot with Nicola Peltz two years ago, has been following in the footsteps of his parents by attending fashion shows together in coordinating outfits to Miu Miu, Givenchy, Mugler and Valentino shows.

Cruz and Harper, respectively, have been less shy in public in comparison to their siblings, but are always present at their mother’s fashion shows.
