Victoria Beckham breaks down in tears at Paris Fashion Week debut as she reunites with son Brooklyn and wife Nicola following 'feud' rumours

Victoria Beckham broke down in tears as she made her Paris Fashion Week show debut. As the Spice Girl turned internationally renowned fashion designer showcased her spring/summer 2023 collection she was overcome with emotion.

After watching supermodel sisters Bella and gigi Hadid walk in her first Paris runway show, proud Victoria took to the catwalk looking sophisticated in an all black outfit and her brunette tresses pulled back into a chic bun. As she walked along to applause, the 48-year-old Too Much hitmaker clasped her hands to her face as she took in the enormity of the occasion.

The mother-of-four's eponymous label was launched in 2008 and by 2011, it had grown into a fixture of New York Fashion Week. As well as Vogue editor-in-chiefs Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful, Victoria was cheered on by her Manchester United footballing legend husband David, 47, their three sons Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 20, Cruz, 17, and daughter Harper Seven, 11.


Brooklyn and his wife Nicola, 27, were all smiles as they joined the family to sit in the front row. Their appearance at the show followed rumours of a 'feud' between the American actress, who tied the knot with Brooklyn in April at her family estate in Florida, and her new mother-in-law.

There was said to be a rift between Nicola and Victoria after a problem occurred with the bride's wedding dress. Previously addressing the reports, Nicola explained how the rumours began when she didn't wear a Victoria Beckham-designed wedding dress for her big day after Victoria "realised that her atelier couldn’t do it." Instead, she opted for a Valentino number despite saying she wanted to wear one of the former Spice Girl's designs.

Meanwhile in the same interview with Variety magazine Brooklyn insisted things were fine between him, his wife, and her in-laws: "I’ve learned they’re always going to try to write stuff like that. They’re always going to try and put people down. But everyone gets along, which is good."

They addressed the rumours again in a joint interview with Grazia USA, saying that the speculation round her and Victoria's relationship "hurt her feelings". "When I read things that say [things like] I was never planning on wearing a [Victoria Beckham] dress or things like that, it does hurt my feelings," she said.

"I try not to let it, but it’s just not the truth. It’s just a bit of a bummer when you’re like, ‘Oh, people think that,’ but it’s just not true."

Addressing choosing her wedding dress designer for her big day, she added: "Well, I was planning on wearing Victoria’s wedding dress. I was truly so excited to be able to wear a design that my future mother-in-law created. I thought that was so beautiful and such a beautiful story."

She went on: "We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn’t make it. So, I spoke to my mom and Leslie [Nicola’s close friend and stylist, stylist Leslie Fremar], and I was like, ‘Well, unfortunately, this can’t happen, so what’s the next step?’"

Nicola, who has been in the spotlight since 2013 with roles in Bates Motel, Transformers: Age of Extinction and others, said about Victoria and hubby David: "They’re great in-laws."

Posting a photo of her family on the FROW with Anna and Edward Victoria captioned the Insatgramed snap: "’It's Paris baby!! I’m so grateful for my family, @BritishVogue and @VogueMagazine for always supporting me on this journey xx"

And sharing photos of the moment she teared-up, she wrote: "Overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude thank you Paris I love you x" Fellow Spice Girl Mel B messaged: "Beyond proud of you."
