Hello sequin shoes
Remember those Saint Laurent glitter boots that were such a hit last Paris Fashion Week that they sold out instantly when they finally hit the shelves this summer? Well forget about them. They are literally last season, thanks to Victoria Beckham.
The fashion designer just showed her SS18 collection at New York Fashion Week, and all anyone can talk about are the glitter shoes all the models were wearing.
They are very simple pointed court shoes, in shades of green and silver, and absolutely covered in sequins.
The beauty of them is that they were unexpected, paired as they were with bold red dresses and structured black dresses, rather than a perhaps girlier pink lace (though there was plenty of pink too).
Through this combo, VB made her sartorial message perfectly clear, ‘delicacy can be strong’.
Yes, those shoes are sparkly, but they won’t stop you from kicking arse. So you better add your name to the waiting list ASAP.
The rest of the collection was just as delicious. I say delicious, because while a lot of the designs were in VB’s signature neutral shades, there were some dresses in ice cream shades pretty enough to eat.
There were sating lilac suits and millennial pink palazzo trousers paired with delicate blouses, and sheer mint pencil skirts.
Fashion aside, I know you’re all wondering if David Beckham and the whole brood were there to support, and of course they were.
David and his ponytail were on the FROW, right next to Brooklyn, who was snapping away with his professional camera, pictures I’m sure he’ll be proud to present at his photography course.
As one front row-er put it, ‘David Beckham and sequins, what more could you want?’. Amen.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
