Name: Victoria Beckham                                                                   
Birth name: Victoria Caroline Adams                                                     
Also known as Posh Spice                                                                 
Born: 17 April 1974 Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire, England                                   
Victoria Caroline Beckham (nee Adams; born 17 April 1974) is an English                 
pop singer, songwriter, dancer, turned fashion designer, author, businesswoman,         
and occasional actress.                                                                 
During her rise to fame with 1990s pop group the Spice Girls, she was dubbed             
Posh Spice, a moniker first coined by the British tabloid press. Since the Spice         
Girls followed separate careers, Beckham has dabbled with pop music, scoring             
four UK Top 10 singles as a solo artist. Her first single to be released, "Out           
of Your Mind", reached number two in the UK Singles Chart and is her highest             
chart entry to date. During her solo music career she has been signed to Virgin         
Records and Telstar Records.                                                             
Beckham has found more success as an internationally recognised and photographed         
style icon. She has had a significant career in fashion, designing a line of             
jeans for Rock & Republic and later designing her own denim brand, dvb Style.           
Beckham has brought out her own range of sunglasses and fragrance, entitled             
Intimately Beckham which has been released in the UK and America. In association         
with the Japanese store, Samantha Thavasa, she has produced a range of handbags         
and jewellery. In addition, she has released two bestselling books, one her             
autobiography, the other a fashion guide.                                               
In her television ventures, Beckham has had five official documentaries and             
reality shows made about her, some of which include Being Victoria Beckham and           
The Real Beckhams. Her last documentary to date was Victoria Beckham: Coming to         
America which documented her move to the United States with her family in 2007,         
but it was poorly received by American critics. She since made a cameo                   
appearance in an episode of American TV series, Ugly Betty.                             
Universally referred to as "Posh", she is married to English football player             
David Beckham with whom she has three sons. The couple's joint wealth is                 
estimated at £112 million.
