Victoria Beckham (then Victoria Adams) was an original member of The Spice Girls, the British pop supergroup of the 1990s. Victoria was "Posh Spice," the elegantly haughty member of the ensemble. (The other four members were known as Baby Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice and Ginger Spice.) She married football (soccer) superstar David Beckham in July of 1999. The two quickly became one of Britain's most celebrated couples, with their every move followed by paparazzi and their home jokingly known to the tabloids as "Beckingham Palace." The Spice Girls disbanded in 2001 and Beckham released the solo album Victoria Beckham the same year, followed by a succession of singles. Over time, Victoria Beckham became best known as a fashion plate and the acknowledged queen of the WAGS -- the "wives and girlfriends" of British football stars. The Beckhams moved to Los Angeles when her husband began playing for the LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer. The Spice Girls also reunited briefly for a world tour in 2007. Victoria and David Beckham have four children and Victoria has a line of clothing in her name. Her autobiography, Learning to Fly, was published in 2001.
