The birthday girl for April 17 is Victoria Beckham.
I have to admit that I misjudged Victoria Beckham. She was my least-favorite Spice Girl because she was the worst singer and the worst dancer in the group. After she married David Beckham and declared that she was going to become a fashion designer, I just rolled my eyes back into my head and said “Not another celebrity who thinks that slapping their name on a label makes them into a designer!”
But I couldn’t have been more wrong about Beckham. In just a few seasons, she’s gone from zero to hero in my eyes. In fact, I don’t know of another Aries designer whose work better reflects the minimalistic style of the sign.
If I rewrote my book tomorrow, I’d put Victoria Beckham front and center in the Aries chapter. The only thing that she could do in order to represent the Aries aesthetic better than she has is to start incorporating pants into her collections. Of all the signs in the zodiac, Aries women do wear the pants . . .
