  • Hollywood’s A-list are reportedly clamouring to wear Victoria Beckham at the 2012 Academy Awards

    With this year’s Oscars less than three weeks away, Hollywood’s elite are starting to finalise their red carpet choices, with one designer reportedly top of their wish list: Victoria Beckham.

    It’s understood that the pop star-turned-fashion designer has been bombarded with requests from actresses desperate to wear one of her chic designs at the glitzy Academy Awards ceremony at the end of February.

    And in another clear sign as to how far the former Spice Girl’s fashion credibility has risen, the actresses in question are all A-list Hollywood stars, with Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron and Cameron Diaz among those who are believed to have contacted Victoria about wearing one of her dresses.

    According to a source, Mrs B has been working around the clock in the run-up to the Oscars to meet demand, as she also puts the finishing touches to her autumn/winter 2012 collection, which will show during New York Fashion Week on Sunday, and tends to six-month-old daughter, Harper Seven.

    They told the Daily Mirror: ‘Victoria’s been working day and night to keep up with demand.’

    The British star has already seen the likes of Eva Longoria, Demi Moore and Gisele Bundhchen wearing her dresses at public events, with style icon Michelle Williams recently wearing not one, but two creations from the designer’s new Victoria, Victoria Beckham sister label as the awards season hots up.

    But despite all the past accolades, a turn on the Oscars red carpet would be the ultimate seal of approval. Tune into the Oscars on 26th February to find out.
