She’s already got a denim line, but Victoria Beckham’s design ambitions don’t stop there. As soon as she’s done with the Spice Girls reunion tour, Posh is set to do line of “POSH frocks.” According to The People, she’s in talks to sell her signature dress collection at upscale department stores and wants her line to be more expensive than Kate Moss’s and Lily Allen’s (oooh, competitive).
Beckham has “picked up knowledge” from Roberto Cavalli and supposedly sought advice from pal Marc Jacobs. Though we normally roll our eyes when celebrities start clothing lines, we are veritably pumped about this one. What’s wrong with having a little hope? After all, Beckham has come a long way from the infamous zebra dress we like to remember as the Peak of Tacky. After the jump, we take a look at some of our favorite Spice Girl’s recent outfits for an indication of what we hope to see on the racks sometime soon. And homegirl isn’t as bad as you’d think.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see those boob strings on a dress or two from her new line. Also, Beckham is one of the few people in the world to shun legwear even in New York in February, which we find both refreshing and uncomfortable. And if a celebrity designer is actually going to challenge us like that, we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.
