In 1999 she married soccer superstar David Beckham and they quickly became one of the world's most celebrated couples. In 2004 Victoria Beckham wanted to follow her passion for style and fashion and embarked on various fashion partnerships, one of them being the hugely successful Victoria Beckham for Rock and Republic. Most recently she launched her own premium fashion label called dVb, penned a bestselling style bible, "That Extra Half an Inch," as well as her own line of fragrances.
