While a few aspects of Victoria Beckham's spring 2014 show were consistent with previous seasons—Manolo Blahnik provided the shoes, the palette was dark and stormy with pops of color, there were touches of menswear here and there—the pieces generally appeared more loose and easy. The instant sex appeal of the pencil skirt fell to more subte silhouettes and less subtle ruffles. As she told the Telegraph, "I still love a fitted dress, but there is another side of me that wants to feel at ease and relaxed as well as sharp and feminine." Perhaps the change can be attributed to her new baby, or maybe it's just fashion evolution. In any case, even with all that talk of ease she's still wearing stilettos.
