Victoria Beckham’s first look—a white windowpane-checked skirt suit, and red blouse, worn with zingy scarlet stretch-leather spike-heeled boots—was an instant mood-lifter. That vibrant red—let’s call it VB vermillion—must do well for her, because it was scattered through her Spring collection, not to mention liberally repped by audience members.Read More
