Victoria Beckham is famous for her style. But all leaders have influences, and when Beckham appeared on the ELLE cover earlier this year she revealed her own style icon: The legendary Barbra Streisand
"I love her," Beckham confessed, and went on to describe a date night, when a certain Mr David Beckham, took her to see Streisand perform at the Hollywood Bowl. "She is the epitome of chic. She looked magnificent. She wears lots of Donna Karan, and she had on this fabulous Donna Karan dress that just draped perfectly. She had this gorgeous hair. She was just beautiful. I love her.
"It was so cold and she took a 20 minute break during the show, and the audience were getting really p***ed off. I hadn't dressed properly for the night, and I was freezing. But in my head she was backstage, taking a bubble bath, sipping champagne, hanging out with famous people, and changing into another fabulous Donna Karan gown and more furs, so I didnt mind waiting. I was like: You take your time, Babs. She is worth waiting for. David went off during the break and bought me every bit of the merchandise."
The inimitable Barbra Streisand is playing The O2 on June 1 and June 3. Team ELLE will be paying homage. See you there?
