Victoria Beckham, the 38-year-old mother-of-four had been asked by Elle France to appear in an exclusive cover shoot, alongside design maverick Karl Lagerfeld.
Shot by Karl Largerfeld at 31 Rue Cambon, the home of the late Coco Chanel, Victoria Beckham is seen standing on a plush staircase – the hotspot where the French fashion icon used to stand and spy on her audience during shows
Modelling a fitted black sweater by Lanvin and underwear by Eres, teamed with Chanel jewellery and sky-high boots by Giuseppe Zanotti Design.
Another shot saw the previous Spice Girl standing alone on the hallowed staircase in just the Eres pants, a white Fendi shirt and her own optical collection, her lithe legs lengthened by black Sergio Rossi stilettos.
Commenting on the finished product, Beckham gushed: “I am thrilled to shoot with Karl. I have so much respect for him and I find him so inspiring.”
“To shoot in Coco Chanel’s apartment in the clothes of the house of Chanel is really a dream come true,” Beckham continued.
Karl Lagerfeld, a man noted for his inability to hush ill-opinion on women, praised the former pop star, saying: “Victoria has an innate sense of style. She knows what she likes, and knows what is good for her.”
