I'm not disagreeing or agreeing with you, I just wanted to point something out. You keep saying this is factual, when somebody being a style icon is more of an opinion. There's no way to gauge somebody's universal style iconic measurement.

Yes!I dont know why people get so rattled up when we(the fans) say she is a style icon?Does it really matter?I dont think so,specially not in todays celebrity culture where every celeb gets called that.I think its personal really.Victoria is my personal style icon,i love her style,but many others dont.However she does have a bigger fan baze than people realize.At her book signing almost 5000 people turned up,mostly women from 20 to 45.I loved the clip from the signing i saw,where this girl said;"I am not here because of Posh Spice or Footballers wife,i am here because of Victoria Beckham my style icon"-that was so nice.

And Victoria never claimed to be one,when she was in NY at Saks,Extras journalist said to her;"You are a Style Icon and she cut him straight out and said;No,i dont think i am!I would not call myself one".And at the Met someone said the same thing and she replied;I am not a style icon,Kate Moss is a style icon because she always looks good,i just wear what suits me.

So i think Shop7th said it very well;its more of an opinon.

Ok, I agree that it is an opinion so for that I apologize, however whether or not I like Kate Moss (I don't at all) I recognise that shes a style icon, same with people like Audrey Hepburn thats the point I was trying to make with Carine in comparison to Victoria.

I would just like to make is clear that I fully understand that people who are fans of her think of her a style icon to them, sometimes I think Victoria wears these amazing pieces that I fall in love, thats why I come on this thread. Equally, just as people were defending her in the past posts I was trying to defend Christopher Kane, so its a two way street.

Lacroix now i know what you meant.Ok i am a HUGE fan of her style,but i can certainly agree with that.People like Carine,Kate,Sienna.etc are considered(pardon my expression) "mainstream" style icons,they are recognized by the industry,while not everyone likes Vbs style,thats what you meant right?
That is true,i definitely can aknowledge that.


You know and this might sound weird,but i like it that way.The thing is;Victoria is not all over the fashion magazines shoved in our faces,and i love that.Because if you look at the things she wears,no matter how much one dislikes her style,she always has at least great pieces and wears good labels,Lanvin,Hermes,Givenchy,Paul Smith,Burberry.etc!Every socialite on earth would get coverage for those outfits.And that makes her even better in my books.She said herslef that she wears her clothes because of who she is,not to get on best dressed lists.She just truly,geniuenly loves fashion,because if all of this was just for the show and getting on Vogues lists.etc she would have given up,years ago.Its who she is,rather than who she wants to be,like so many people who dont know anything about her,think.I wish more poeple read her interviews with an open mind,she has a wicked sense of humor and dosent take herself too seriously.

^ Yes exactly, people like Kate & Sienna are so loved by the fashion industry theyre the epitome of mainstream style icons, people just accept it because theyre always on Vogue etc. Actually, I've always wondered, has Victoria ever been on the cover of Vogue/Harpers/W? I knew she was with the Spice Girls (few years ago) and shes had a few editorials with Harpers.
