There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In 'Great Outfits in Fashion History,' Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Before Victoria Beckham did practical-chic, she did sexy minimalism. When the acclaimed designer stepped onto the world stage as "Posh Spice" in the '90s, she wasn't wearing wide-leg trousers or '70s-inspired languid silhouettes — she was wearing tight, black mini dresses. 

At one of her early performances with the Spice Girls in Bali, Beckham wore a simple, bustier-ed mini, paired with shiny, square-toed ankle strap heels and one of her iconic neutral lipstick shades. Her no-frills pop star aesthetic feels very of-the-moment as lingerie-leaning, nostalgia-tinged pieces dominate our feeds.
