Why Victoria Beckham’s ’90s Bob Is Still Winning

Victoria Beckham has once again proved her style icon status after being voted best celebrity bob of all time. 

We know what you’re thinking – but VB doesn’t actually HAVE a bob?

Nope, not any more. But showing just how far the former Spice Girl’s style influence goes, Victoria’s infamous A-line ‘pob’ from all the way back in the ’90s is apparantly still the most-coveted short celebrity ‘do.

The 40-year-old designer beat the likes of Alexa Chung, Rihanna and Jennifer Aniston to claim the best celebrity bob in a new survey by www.hairtrade.com.

She may boast long, tousled tresses now, but there was once a time when VB’s sleek and shiny bob saw hordes of fans rushing to the hairdressers to recreate her signature Posh Spice look.

VB rocked her pob in both blonde and brunette hues, and it was also her haircut of choice when she walked down the aisle with hubby David in the showbiz wedding of the century.

‘I had to pick Victoria Beckham as the winner,’ said one of the survey’s respondents. ‘The bob that she had when she married David Beckham is just unforgettable. She is one of those people who can literally pull off any hairstyle.’

Legendary British fashion icon Mary Quant came a close second for her signature ’60s pixie crop, followed by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in third place.
