Posh's Dress Collection Gets "'Absolutely Outstanding" Reviews

Victoria Beckham may have started her eponymous dress collection with 12 styles in September 2008, but she’s returned this Fashion Week with a expanded collection of gowns, jackets and embellished minis that has debuted to rave reviews. Style.com says, “These dresses look so well-made, so of-the-moment yet also timeless…that they do the talking for [Beckham]”. The International Herald Tribune found the designer as a stand-out among her celeb-designer peers: “Beckham has succeeded in creating a collection in her own image with playful gestures and with a sense that, unlike most celebrity lines, she would be proud and pleased to wear every piece herself.” And WWD seems to think Victoria might be evolving into a fashion heavy hitter. “Though too early to tell — a mere two collections into her second career — judging from the controlled lineup she showed on Sunday, it seems that [Beckham] may indeed be no lightweight. (Figuratively, that is. Formerly Posh is still a slip of a girl.)” PEOPLE caught up with the designer at Armani/5th Avenue store opening last night and she was still reeling from her her great reviews. “It’s been wonderful,” she gushed. “The reviews have been absolutely outstanding. The retail response has been wonderful. The sales grew, so far, over the previous collection. It has been phenomenal. The whole thing is mind-blowing to be honest. I love what I do.” We can’t wait to see Victoria wearing items from the new collection! Check out all the new looks at instyle.com. Tell us: What do you think of Victoria’s new dresses?

Victoria Beckham’s dresses are fantastic. You go girl. Also, saw some very nice pictures of Tiger Woods and his family, and they were all very nice pictures. Their newborn son is so cute, same with their daughter. Their dogs are cute, too.

I love it. People of the under-class fashion mind might think this dress is horendous.

I so would wear her dresses we’ve totally got the same taste in style. Let me know where these dresses can be bought.

They all look exactly like her dress collection from 2008. Nothing new. I think they are just trying to be nice to her. Different colors, same style. Big deal!

A Beautiful Collection. Finally, someone with taste creates a collection that every woman could wear. Aside to Victoria: Try pitching this to Bravo so that all those “Housewives” from various cities could look decent once in a while. They would certainly be easy on the eyes if not on the ears.

Wow! I love every single one of these dresses. I really like her sense of style. Can you buy in the US?
