Marie Louise follows my SGN Instagram and commented on a few posts. And I was like 'she's Victoria's friend from her solo documentary' :)

Nice to see Melanie there at least, would of been great if Geri or Emma could also have been there.

But team VM seem to be rather close at the moment when it comes to socialising and social media.

Ah lovely picture. Jackie always looks glam! No wonder Victoria often says her mum inspires her in that regard.

Yes it's nice to see Melanie was there, always love seeing a few of the girls together. Geri and Emma have also often liked a lot of all of the girls pictures on social media, including these recent ones for Victoria's OBE.

what are the requisites to be given an OBE?

no disrespect to VB's great achievement... and if it's due to her charity work, fine.

but if it was just due to her "contribution to fashion"... isn't it a bit, shallow? (it's a harmless question, please, no dissing VB)

^ There is nothing shallow about her contribution to fashion, she employs almost 200 people, and even more indirectly. She turned herself into award winning global luxury fashion brand. I will never understand people who think Fashion industry is shallow, and has no contribution, when it brings in BILLIONS of pounds to UK economy, and countless jobs. To get an award you have to make an impact in what you do, which she certainly has.

That is so cool she follows you, ML is actually friends with all the other girls too, and has done VB's make up often during the SGs. You can spot her in some of the old SG photos with the girls.

OBEs, MBEs, DBEs... whichever they get, it tends to be because that person has contributed to something that has benefited Britain, often in an outstanding way - be that in sport, business, charity, entertainment etc.

Like Sah said, in Victoria's case I would imagine her "contribution to fashion" means her business in Britain. Most of her manufacturing and brand is based in the UK and has been globally successful. That's why she's been recognised for it (:.

She's not the only one - Vivienne Westwood is a Dame (DBE), I believe Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and many other fashion designers also received these kind of awards in previous years. So it's not really so out of the ordinary for Victoria to also get one.

^ Claudia do you know why her OBE look's different from David's? :D Some fan account on IG put together the photos of her next to the one David got in 2003. Hers seem to be wider, with more ribbon, and his is more narrow. I usually follow the honor lists, but never noticed this before. :dizzy:

Ooh I'd not noticed that. Maybe men's and women's ribbons are different? Women get the bow type one and men get the traditional straight ribbon :shrug:.
