It's been almost a year since Victoria Beckham changed her hairstyle. So it was clearly time for the fashion-forward celeb to experiment with a new look.
The 35-year-old unveiled a dramatic updo this weekend as she arrived for a dinner date at a chic London restaurant with designer Marc Jacobs, one of her mentors.
Created with the help of a hairpiece, the futuristic chignon was the perfect complement for her outfit - a sleek panelled shift from her own collection and sexy Christian Louboutin ankle boots.
Marc clearly has an inspirational effect on the former Spice Girl.
When, in September 2008 the footballer's wife decided to chop her locks for an Audrey Hepburn-style pixie cut, she debuted the daring change of style at the fashion maestro's New York catwalk show.
Now Victoria's gone in the opposite direction – who should be on hand again but the designer of choice for the Big Apple's cool brigade?
