Victoria Beckham to be awarded an OBE in 2017

Victoria Beckham reportedly surprised her family this Christmas with the news that she's been included on Queen Elizabeth's New Year's Honours list.

She's set to receive an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for her contribution to fashion (because why not) and for her humanitarian work (because she's not all pout, you know).

Elle UK remind us that Victoria's husband David Beckham was honoured with an OBE 13 years ago, and we can't believe it's been that long; we still remember Vic's outfit and her hair. Those were the long, swept to one side days. And who can forget David's Dob? (That's David Bob, FYI.) We can't wait to see what wears to collect her award. How does one accessorise a red ribbon attached to a thick gold cross?


The artist still known as Posh Spice from time to time has come a long way since the Spice days. Four children, a long marriage in celeb terms, a celebrated fashion line, a performance at the Olympics, and her collaboration with Estée Lauder are just a handful of her accomplishments. Girl Power indeed!
