No. 1 Magazine - - COVER STORY -

Over two decades, we have seen Vic­to­ria’s style trans­form from crazy to clas­sic. In the early days, she went for the shock fac­tor and was con­sid­ered a “brand killer”. De­sign­ers were ‘hor­ri­fied’ when she was papped in their clothes! Even Vic­to­ria crit­i­cised her early look. In her open let­ter, she com­pared her­self to a “drag queen” say­ing: “You are go­ing to have so much fun with your clothes... It will never oc­cur to you that you ap­pear ridicu­lous. You will turn up at award cer­e­monies re­sem­bling a drag queen”. But as she ma­tured, so did her style. “You will learn, as you ma­ture, to swap heels for Stan Smith train­ers, mini dresses for crisp white shirts,” she went on. To­day, Bri­tish Air­ways’“world’s best-dressed fe­male celebrity trav­eller” has si­lenced her crit­ics and now rubs shoul­ders with the ‘hor­ri­fied’ brands’ chief ex­ecs and counts Vogue Editor, Anna Win­tour, among her friends.

Vic­to­ria (above) wasn’t al­ways as stylish as she is to­day (below).
