Victoria's Secret

There's a softer side of Victoria Beckham emerging. A sensitive, thoughtful, polite side. It's always been there it's just that the American press (and public) are now seeing it, embracing it and celebrating it. Her beautiful Spring '13 presentation for her eponymous label plays with texture, lingerie influences and - of course - Victoria's incredible eye for detail.

Before the show she shared that she examines each look to ensure "it looks good from every angle." Sounds fundamental enough, but one glance at the #NYFW shows will tell you that not everyone shares her enthusiasm for that quality. She also wants to design only pieces that she'd want to wear herself. Again, there's an obviousness to this statement, but in her case she really does design looks that are completely Victoria Beckham. And we love it.

The look is black and white with pops of a vibrant sunset orange. There's movement, waist-loving silhouettes and just the right amount of sheer versus opaque fabric. Even her pants have a dressmaker's quality.

She once again shows us that beauty isn't boring, and "girly" can indeed be strong. There's an innate power in her delicate pieces. The result is a celebration of femininity that doesn't require ruffles and bows - but doesn't rule them out either. There's a wearable sexiness here that is completely Victoria Beckham.

I love it. This is easily her most wearable collection and I suspect we'll all be rushing out to invest in our favorite pieces. For me it's that black dress that the designer herself is wearing.

Oh, and for those of you keeping score, David was there too.

What the beautiful people are saying...

I love this softer side. Espeically the shoes. They are so sleek!

The shoes are very sleek. Its taken me a while to warm up the the idea of open-toe booties... but its growing on me now ;)

Something to say, gorgeous?
