Love or loathe the lady herself, Victoria Beckham's clothing line is getting serious recognition in the fashion world. And so it should.

Her first collection in Spring '09 consisted of 10 hourglass pencil dresses; very Roland Mouret, very chic.

With each collection since, she has courageously evolved her style; its still about tailoring, but with less emphasis on structure.

Her current range includes loose, parachute silk dresses with knots and draping to add shape. Equally as sexy, but in a more languid manner.

This classic, '50s-style dress sits in the middle. It's got that hint of retro glamour, but in a prettier, less femme fatale way and is guaranteed to make you feel equally as feminine but a tad more girly. Teamed with rose gold heels and retro shades, it's the perfect number for garden parties and summer soirees.
