Victoria Beckham's Tan Was 'A Bit Footballer's Wife'


Victoria Beckham has come a long way since her Posh Spice days, back when her family was smaller but her bra size was significantly larger.

Getting her "WAG"-style breast implants removed was just one step Beckham took to becoming the epitome of chic elegance she is today. But the designer recently admitted in an interview that she made another beauty change: ditching the fake tan.

Hello! quotes Victoria as saying:

"I don't wear fake tan anymore. Sometimes I've been turned orange but that's definitely a look from my past. Being overly tanned is very aging and, dare I say it, a bit footballer's wife. Embrace your natural colour!"

We wholeheartedly agree. Victoria's fake tan was just part of a head-to-toe look, once that included the icy blonde bob (or "pob") and fake Louis Vuitton bags. Thankfully Marc Jacobs took note and shipped her an authentic Louis bag, she decided to shrink her boobs back to their natural state and her fashion sense slowly evolved into the sleek, understated look we know and love today.

The one trademark style she's kept? Those signature oversize sunglasses.
