Nicola Peltz may have not spent Christmas with her mother-in-law at the Beckhams' annual Cotswolds family festivities, but she is still very much ensconced within Victoria's style fold.

"Would I wear a Burberry bandana these days? Absolutely not!" she revealed. "But at the time it felt right and I'm proud of what me and David have achieved."
We can’t wait to see what other VB-inspired trends Nicola is set to take on this year. All of a sudden Posh and Becks’ matching all-leather style moment feels long overdue a Nicola-Brooklyn recreation…
