In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the world witnessed the meteoric rise of a power couple that transcended boundaries, not only through their undeniable charisma but also through their captivating sense of style. David and Victoria Beckham, affectionately known as Posh & Becks, made a lasting mark on the fashion world.

This dynamic duo's journey to global stardom began in the late 1990s. Victoria, also famously known as Posh Spice, was a prominent member of the wildly successful British girl group, the Spice Girls. Her sultry voice and undeniable stage presence propelled her to international fame, and the Spice Girls became a cultural phenomenon, leaving an indelible mark on the music and fashion of the era.

Meanwhile, David Beckham was making waves on the football field as a star player for Manchester United, one of the most iconic football clubs in the world. His skills and charisma on and off the pitch earned him a dedicated global following, and he became a symbol of British football's renaissance in the late 1990s.

Their union marked the convergence of two media powerhouses, creating a frenzy of media attention. Posh & Becks were more than just a couple; they were a cultural phenomenon, and their fashion choices, including their iconic eyewear, were closely scrutinised and often emulated.

With the release of the Netflix documentary 'Beckham,' which intimately details David Beckham's life and career, a wave of nostalgia has swept over their fans.
