It's hard to be taken seriously in the world of luxury fashion, and even harder from someone who used to be a pop singer. Yet, Victoria Beckham made the transition nearly seamless as one of the hottest talent's in the UK. The womenswear designer launched her eponymous collection in 2008 --after several stunts in fashion including a denim line. Since her low key launch, the talent has generated millions of dollars, won the Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and the honor of UN Goodwill Ambassador. The mother of four spends a lot of her time doing humanitarian work, specifically for women in Africa.
