“I’m not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does.” Pop music has a way of changing shape and evolving every few years, which is exactly what happened in the late 1990s when bubblegum pop dominated the music charts around the world. At the time, no group took more advantage of this than the all-female British group known as the Spice Girls made up of Melanie B (Scary), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty), Emma Bunton (Baby), Geri Halliwell (Ginger) and Victoria Adams (Posh). With the band instantly becoming an international sensation known for hits like “Wannabe,” “2 Become 1” and “Spice Up Your Life,” it was only a matter of time before the stunning Adams found fame of her own.
After six years and three albums, the Spice Girls broke up in 2000 leaving Adams and the others to launch their solo careers. Although Adams didn’t find mainstream success as a singer, she rekindled her popularity with her iconic sense of style and established herself as one of the most renowned names in the fashion industry. Along the way, she found love, tied the knot and started a family with soccer superstar David Beckham, which further sealed her fate in the spotlight. Over the years, the pair has become the most popular couple outside of royalty in all of England especially after welcoming four children to the world and amassing a combined net worth of $624 million.
With all eyes on the future Mrs. Beckham in 1999, people were quick to notice any changes in the former Spice Girl’s appearance. After the birth of her first son, Brooklyn Joseph, and just four months before her highly publicized walk down the aisle at Ireland’s Luttrellstown Castle, Victoria seemingly skipped the post-pregnancy body and returned to her skinny jeans in the blink of an eye. But, her waist size wasn’t the only thing that changed before her wedding! Never known for her busty chest size while on stage as Posh Spice, her chest seemingly blossomed overnight but was far from the typical aftermath of new motherhood.
“I’m completely natural, except for my fingernails, and I have a bit of help with my hair and a bit of fake tan going on,” Beckham said at the time. However, she changed her tune a few years later when her publicist admitted that Beckham had opted for a breast enhancement to bring her A-cup chest to a jaw-dropping DD. Only a few years later, her implants seemingly vanished and left many to wonder what happened to the fashion designer’s changing bust size.
After four kids, a high-profile marriage and a blossoming career, Beckham came forward in 2011 and admitted that she had the implants removed because she regretted having the surgery done in the first place. “I’ve worn so many dresses in the past and when I see the photographs, I think, ‘Crikey! My boobs are up around my neck again.’ No torpedo bazookas. Gone.” At the same time, Beckham also confirmed that she had a laser procedure to remove any unwanted hair around her hairline.
Admitting that her large chest looked odd for her tiny frame, Beckham said that she was happy with the reduction and how it made her look more natural and proportional. Although she still has implants, she chose a smaller, subtler B cup that has given her even more options in terms of her wardrobe, which is exactly how she makes her fortune.
Despite her openness about her breast enhancement over the years, Beckham’s confession hasn’t stopped people from wondering if she’s had work done on her face as well. Many rumors suggest that she’s had a rhinoplasty since her nose is much slimmer and the tip is much smaller than her early career as a Spice Girl. Add in the fact that she’s 42 years old with over two decades in the spotlight and it’s hard to believe that the mother of four between the ages of five and 17 doesn’t have any wrinkles on her face. Instead, she’s proven she only gets more beautiful with time and, perhaps, a few Botox injections.
Much like the rhinoplasty rumors, Beckham has yet to confirm the Botox injections but that hasn’t stopped the tabloids from speculating on her obviously nipped, tucked, tightened and tweaked appearance. In fact, one surgery that is obvious to many is her million-dollar smile. Proving that not all Brits have bad teeth, Beckham’s smile has become much whiter and straighter over the years thanks to extensive dental work done to maintain her glamorous look.
Regardless of what procedures she’s confirmed or those that are merely rumors, it’s safe to say that they have only helped Beckham’s career and popularity over the years. After all, as a model and fashion designer, any time people talk about her appearance does wonders to keep her in the headlines and create more positive publicity. Then again, as one of Britain’s wealthiest women with over $300 million in the bank, she can certainly afford to let the rumors roll right off without a second thought.
