Victoria Beckham’s Daughter Harper Says Her Spice Girls Outfits Were “Unacceptable”

While most people would consider Victoria Beckham to be a fashion icon, the designer revealed that her daughter harper finds some of her past looks extremely problematic.

Victoria confessed in an interview with Vogue Australia that her 10-year-old had some tough feedback regarding the many barely-there looks from her mother’s pop star era. “She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of make-up and a crop top,” she began. “She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short.’”

And it wasn’t just her daughter who found fault with her looks of yesteryear, her husband David Beckham also agreed with the sentiment. The performer formerly known as Posh Spice continued, “Then David piped up and said, ‘Absolutely, Harper! They really, really were.’ And she was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were. I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We’ll see.”

While Victoria admitted that she’s not a huge fan of those customs anymore either and doesn’t “really miss those outfits,” the Birkin bags and Tom Ford for Gucci pieces from that time period have stuck around. She also explained that she was able to get such high-end designer pieces because “the other Spice Girls weren’t really into fashion, so I was fortunate to be able to take up most of the budget.”

Victoria also spoke about her relationship with social media and her fears around allowing her young daughter to use those platforms one day. “Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about that just yet. But seeing how cruel people can be, yes it really does [concern me],” she said. She went on to explain that Harper is “at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends. But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”

However, not everything about the Spice Girls was totally “unacceptable,” according to Harper. In December, Victoria shared an Instagram Story of the two of them cozied up in bed together watching Spice World, sharing with her followers that the 1997 film had been on “heavy rotation this holiday” in their household. She added that while her daughter her did have some questions about the practicality of certain outfits, she loved their tour bus from her and also declared that she wanted a “little Gucci dress” of her own, just like “mummy.”
