At Victoria Beckham’s Fall Winter 2019 fashion show, an epic battle of the bobs broke out: Harper Beckham, then seven, took on the matriarch of modern publishing, Anna Wintour, with a freshly-cut bob and bangs that looked uncannily similar to Wintour’s. The iconic London Fashion Week moment spurred a million memes, with dad David Beckham even joining in on the fun posting a picture of the back of their heads with the caption: “Harper and Anna. Who wore it better?”
Overnight in London, Harper and Anna once again sat side by side, this time for Victoria Beckham’s Fall Winter 2020 show. Instead of engaging another bob-off with Wintour though, Harper instead pulled her hair back into a cute little high bun while sitting on her dad’s lap for the presentation at Whitehall’s Banqueting House.
But this time it wasn’t her hair which was made headlines. “Harper got her first “couture” dress this week. Thanks, Mum!” wrote Business Of Fashion’s Tim Blanks on Instagram. Posing with her mum Victoria backstage, Harper wore a beautiful high-neck smocked dress in a retro floral print custom-made by her mum. With a frilled neck and slightly blouson sleeve, Harper looked adorable in the mini-couture, pairing the frock with matching navy tights and patent booties.
A fashion critic in the making, Harper Beckham once again made waves at London Fashion Week. Watch out Anna.
