Victoria Beckham\'s Fashion Line Earned £15 Million Pounds in 3 Months
Victoria Beckham has reportedly earned £15 million from her fashion line in the first three months of 2011. That's 15 million British pounds, so translated to American dollars, that's a sh-t ton of millions. Wow.

Whenever I hear about a celebrity turned designer, I just assume it's kind of a passion project type thing and nobody actually buys it and nobody ever checks to see if it's turning a profit. Apparently, people like $4000 cocktail dresses designed by a former Spice Girl...who knew?

These figures are a result of 71% increase in sales since last season. A source close to the star dishes on his insane earnings, "The fashion business is currently due to exceed all expectation with its figures up 71 per cent on last season, which equals £15 million in sales, while the turnover increases from £1.3 million to £2.8 million."

Now, Victoria is about to make more money than her husband, who makes his living kicking soccer balls around and looking great in a pair of boxer briefs. No seriously, that's his career.

"Victorian never dreamed her clothing range would be successful. She is close to eclipsing her husband David!" says the source.

Since most of Beckhams couture designs retail starting around $2000 and upwards, she decided to make a more affordable second range called Victoria by Victoria Beckham. This line has fun and flirty dresses geared towards a younger audience.

"It's definitely channeling my inner girl. I started this collection before I was pregnant and the doctors told me at first I was having a boy. So mainly I wanted to do dresses that I wanted, that weren't 'out there' - and at the same time show that, contrary to what most people think, I do have a sense of humor."

When she says "I do have a sense of humor" she means one of the dresses is inlaid with images of a cat. That's funny, I guess.

Her collection is a favorite with celebs having been worn on the red carpet by stars like, Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Trudie Styler and Elle Macpherson.

In other, the Beckhams-are-rich news. The couple is estimated to be worth $45 million making them the 4th highest paid celebrity couples, right after The Jolie-Pitt clan. David brings in $40 million per year for his five year deal with the LA Galaxy, which actually expires next month leaving some to believe that he will go play for Paris Saint Germain, however, he has been offered a renewal deal at LA Galaxy.

"There is a lot of money on the table for Paris, so nothing can be dismissed yet," says a source.

The moral of this story is that the Beckhams have a lot of money. Happy Monday America.
