Victoria Beckham Is Giving Meghan Markle Style Advice

Long before she got engaged to a prince, Meghan Markle was a fashion inspiration who ran her own lifestyle blog, The Tig. But now that she's about to be a royal, she's reportedly getting a bit of advice on how to alter her personal style to, ahem, suit her position in British society. According to Vanity Fair, the Brit counseling Markle on this transition is none other than Victoria Beckham.
"They get along well and have been in touch recently," a friend of the designer reportedly told VF. "Meghan really likes Victoria’s style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe. She loves Victoria’s elegant but smart dresses, so expect her to wear one very soon."

We have no official proof of this new very stylish friendship, but there are two small pieces of evidence that could back it up. First, Markle reportedly visited facialist Sarah Chapman on Beckham's recommendation. With Beckham's help, she was even able to get around the six-week waiting list in time for her engagement announcement. Though it's hard to imagine anyone not scrambling to accommodate a future duchess.
Then Markle wore a Victoria Beckham white cashmere sweater in some of her engagement photos with Prince Harry in December. After wearing the sweater it sold out almost immediately, which is a fact that might give a cynic pause about the motivation behind this new friendship. Not to mention, this "friend" of Beckham's decision to leak it to Vanity Fair. Is this just about giving Beckham's business a boost?
If you're more inclined to think the best of both of these ladies (we are), it makes a lot of sense for Markle to turn to Posh Spice for advice. After all, Beckham made a leap from her Spice Girls LBDs to the ultimate in high fashion.
Markle's casual chic isn't exactly as far from royal as Beckham's style once seemed — not that you could tell that to the messy bun critics out there — but she couldn't be blamed for wanting to make some tweaks here and there, just as anyone does when they're reaching a new stage in their life.
If Beckham is responsible for helping Markle choose this Alexander McQueen tuxedo look, then we wholeheartedly endorse this partnership.
