    31 looks, five hours sleep and 22 pairs of flowery winklepickers… there’s only one VB.Let us count the ways…

    22 Pairs Of IT Flats
    The biggest news of NYFW so far? Victoria Beckham has turned shoe designer for the very first time, debuting 22 pairs of serious fashion flats in three colourways – pure white, floral and leopard print. Rose covered winklepickers are officially SS15’s first IT shoe.

    2 Front Row Family Members
    Harper Beckham was noticeably absent from Victoria’s frow this season, leaving daddy David and biggest brother Brooklyn to pick up the slack. We can only assume she had something even more fabulous to attend…

    5 Hours Sleep
    VB left the office at 2am the night before her early show, following a marathon of last minute fittings from 10am-10:30pm and 3.5 hours of sound and lighting tech tests. All of this, we assume, leaves little time for shut eye. Say hello to her hardworking machinists!

    31 Brand New Looks
    Oh yes, the clothes. VB re-worked her famous ‘sucky-sucky’ fabric (a heavy-duty jersey that pulls you in at all the right places) into trend-led silhouettes rather than body-con dresses – think slinky wide leg trousers and fluted midi skirts. She played with proper florals for the first time, but kept them cool and disjointed rather than full-on and fussy. Contrast all this ‘girly-ness’ with the utility shapes that came at the start of the show and you can really see how much VB’s brand DNA has evolved since that very first range of fitted dresses. (See every single look in the gallery above.)

    1 New Model Name To Know
    27 girls were cast in the SS15 extravaganza, but VB personally selected just 1 (Netherlands-born Maartje Verhoef) to feature on her Instagram, clocking up 21,500+ likes in a matter of hours. Personal endorsement from the designer herself? Guess that makes Maartje the next top model to watch.

    1 Adorable Good Luck Note
    OK, so not everyone in the world’s most famous family could make it for mum’s big day. But with a good luck message like this (and chubby cheeks like Harper’s) it’ll surely be easy to forgive and forget. We’re also keen to identify the penmanship. Is this what David’s handwriting looks like? Swoon.
