On April 17 fashion icon and British national treasure Victoria Beckham celebrates turning 50.

Though the former Spice Girl has been a sartorial muse since stepping onto the scene in her 90s girl band heyday (the possibility of forgetting hers and David's matching moments is near impossible), she cemented her status as a key figure in the fashion after starting her eponymous fashion line in 2008. Though A-list icons from Sydney Sweeney to Julia Roberts and Meghan Markle is quite the testament to prove her success as a designer, nothing quite says 'I've made it' than having a regular spot to present season collections during Paris Fashion Week twice per year.

“I want to evolve each season. I never want to be one of those brands where people know what they’re going to see, she said in an interview in 2015, "I always want an element of surprise. One thing I never want to do is copy what anybody else is doing. I have a signature, and it’s very important to me to stay true to that.”

The word 'signature' also rings true in terms of her personal fashion agenda. Form-fitting maxi dresses, two-piece suits tailored to perfection (notably in white) and her beloved pantaboots (the tights/leggings with built-shoes that we still can't quite get our heads around)  - if she had a separate wardrobe for her go-to 'fits (maybe she does, who knows?) these items would be fundamental.

In honour of the style mogul's half a century, Hello! Fashion takes a look back at 50 of her most iconic outfits of all time...
