Harper Beckham, 12, proves she’s inherited Victoria’s style sense as she heads to mum’s PFW show in £840 Prada heels… but David misses the fashion brand in socks and sandals
The Beckham clan was in full force on Friday as they supported Victoria Beckham at her Paris Fashion Week show.
Proving she has inherited her mother’s chic sense of style, 12-year-old Harper took to the show in a fashionable white dress paired with £840 Prada mules.
Still, it doesn’t seem like Victoria had much of a say in her husband’s outfit, while David, 48, made a rare fashion mistake in socks and sandals.
The former footballer completed the look with a navy blue suit, layered over a plain white T-shirt and a pair of orange-toned shades.
Cruz, 18, also came to the show and paid tribute to the 1990s in double denim, pairing a jacket and jeans with green Converse shoes.

A big contrast: while Harper put on a pair of heels, David opted for socks and sandals
Although they are expected to attend the show, Victoria and David’s eldest sons Brooklyn, 24, and Romeo, 21, were not seen leaving the hotel.
Before heading to the show, David shared a video of him kissing Harper on the lips as the pair prepared for Victoria’s fashion show.
For years the Beckhams have sparked widespread debate about their affection, with David sowing division among fans by sharing footage of him kissing his daughter – but he has always remained defiant.
In 2017, David was forced to defend his decision, insisting he and wife Victoria are ‘always very affectionate’ towards their brood of four.
The sports star hit back at his critics at the time when he took part in a Facebook Live on his own official page during a trip to Bangkok, insisting he kissed all of his children on the lips – apart from his eldest son Brooklyn.
While many had called previous footage of them kissing ‘beautiful’ and a depiction of the ‘close bond’ he has with Harper, David was also hit with a barrage of negative comments, with others claiming the post was ‘disgusting’ .
Stunned by the strong response that followed, David turned to his photo with Harper and said, “I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn maybe not…
“Brooklyn (was) 18 at the time, so he might think that’s a little strange, but I’m very affectionate with the kids. That’s how I was raised – and Victoria – and that’s how we are with our children.’
The former England captain continued: ‘We want to show love to our children and we protect them, care for them and support them.’
David spoke about his role as a father, adding: ‘Having children is the most special thing in the world.’
Like David, Victoria previously shared photos of herself kissing Harper as the duo took a dip in the pool together during a 2017 vacation.

Chic and oh heck! David is known for playing with fashion, such as donning a sarong while dining with Victoria in France in 1998
Victoria’s show comes a year after her PFW debut, when she unveiled her Spring/Summer 2023 collection at the prestigious event before reappearing to show her collection in March this year.
She said at the time: “If I get the chance to do another show. I’m going to enjoy every moment. I’m having a bit of a crunch moment. To be an independent brand and now make my dream come true, to have my first show in Paris, I plan to enjoy it to the fullest’.
Earlier this week she spoke to The Telegraph about traveling to Paris for her show: ‘It’s a nightmare – I travel with so much luggage, but I like to have options.’
About preparing for the show, she says, “We do a lot of preparation beforehand. Paris is the crème de la crème. It has certainly improved my playing, but strangely enough I feel less nervous during performances there than in London or New York.’
Just days before the show, she excitedly confirmed that the brand is turning a profit after years of financial struggle – something she is “very proud” of: “I have a great CEO in Marie Leblanc (formerly of Printemps, Isabel Marant and Celine).
‘She really ironed out all the problems and restructured us. That’s huge – every day during the pandemic it felt like we were putting out fires. Sales in the store have now increased by 80 percent compared to the previous year. Straight away. I’m just very proud.’
Her show comes in the wake of the announcement that a fragrance collection is being added to her Victoria Beckham Beauty range.
Victoria sent fans wild when she shared the promotional photos for the line, in which she looks stunning in a range of sizzling ensembles.
