Earlier today, while visiting Estée Lauder’s laboratory, designer Victoria Beckham put her posh twist on that old chemistry class staple, the lab coat. The designer was working on a new project with the beauty house, an expansion on her successful first offering. And while Beckham is often seen sporting pieces from her own line, the newest addition to the designer’s wardrobe put a Maison Margiela–esque spin on her slick signature style, recalling the tailored lab coats worn by the design collective.
Beckham’s look had a similar seriousness with its ruched-sleeve take on the science room essential. But she also used the visit as an occasion to pull a classic VB style maneuver. Underneath her coat was the “Fashion Stole My Smile” tee, a cheeky slogan the designer created to poke fun at herself. The other ingredients for a winning (fashion) formula? Beckham’s signature mannish Rolex and diamond ring. Given that she received an OBE last month, perhaps a Nobel Prize for science is in the cards.
