ONE’s a curvaceous American reality TV queen known for her daring outfits. The other’s a svelte British former pop star who favours smart tailoring to figure-hugging latex.
Kim Kardashian, 40, and Victoria Beckham, 47, are two showbiz queens who rule on opposite sides of the Atlantic, and couldn’t seem more different.

But this weekend, their two worlds collided at a glitzy bash in Miami, USA, and fans were bowled over to see the two A listers pose for pictures together.
The star-studded do was to launch the new season of David’s soccer club, Inter Miami CF, and held at the Goodtime Hotel, which is co-owned by music icon Pharrell Williams.
Kim dressed in her typical style, squeezing her voluptuous frame into a teeny gold Christian Dior dress, while Posh glammed up a classy white shirt with some seriously sexy PVC trousers.
Despite their very different fashion choices, Kim has long been a fan of Victoria’s style, as these pictures show.
Kim delighted her fans – and one very Posh one in particular – when she posted a throwback picture of herself and her school friends dressing up as the Spice Girls for a talent show.
Wearing a black bandeau dress and strappy heels, the teenage Kim carried the popstar’s look off to a tee.
Victoria commented on Kim’s throwback Spice Girls tribute, calling her the “perfect Posh!”
She wrote: “I’m so Thankful that me & my friends were the Spice Girls for our high school talent show! The Spice Girls got me through a lot! #ForeverThankful.’”
And even Victoria thought so, commenting Kim made “the perfect Posh.”
Time to shine:
It’s pretty unlikely we would see top fashion designer Victoria Beckham in head-to-toe metallics these days. Her wardrobe palette tends to revolve around monochrome or muted shades.
But as we can see, Posh Spice once adopted the tin foil look, while Kim went for metallic to promote her new Hearts fragrances in January.

For the same fragrance campaign, Kim also went for a silver two-piece
And just look who did the Tin Man look first?
Not many people could pull off a white suit, but these two ladies prove white is right.
Kim was spotted in this chic Dior two piece in Washington DC last year.

Mrs Beckham loves tailoring, something she discovered back in 1998 when the girls wore white trouser suits to the after-party of their Spice World movie premiere.
More recently, she has adopted a more sophisticated version of the classic style, like the one she sported at the People’s Choice Awards in 2018.
Ladies in red:
The Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s star turned into a scarlet woman for a night out in Malibu last autumn. She teamed a figure-hugging cut-out red top with skintight red leather trousers.
It was a look Posh once tried during her solo career. She wore a cut-out top and matching trousers for a performance of her 2001 single Not Such an Innocent Girl.

All eyes were on Victoria Adams, as she was known then, and her footballing ace fiance David Beckham in January 1998 when they announced their engagement.

Wearing head-to-toe black, Vic wrapped up for the winter weather in this long coat with a cosy fur trim.
Seventeen years later, and Kim K reworked the look as she stepped out in Los Angeles to film Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Both ladies have turned to their slinky side.
Kim wore a beautiful pastel Versace gown to the wedding of Chance the Rapper in 2019. Naomi Campbell had previously worn the same dress.
Posh also worked a silky slip, trimmed with lace. She wowed fashionistas with her choice of outfit to the Vogue Fashion Awards in New York in 2000.
Vest by far:
The-mum-of-four might prefer to keep covered up now, but back in the nineties, Victoria was more than happy to expose her slender midriff.
Kim, who also has four children, has long adopted the look, teaming a simple vest crop top with skirts, workout leggings, leather trousers and just her pants.

Stars in stripes:
They’ve worn snakeskin and leopard print, but there was definitely some crossing over when it came to zebra print.
Posh brought out her wild side in a Michael Hoban monochrome mini at the MTV Movie Awards in LA in 2007. Kim copied the zebra look for an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

But hang on …
While Kim might look to Posh for her fashion tips, Victoria has also followed in the reality queen’s stylist steps.
Kim wore this Balmain leopard-print skirt to the Vogue Foundation Gala in July 2014, having put her own spin on the skirt by shortening it.
Victoria wore the full-length version a few months later, teaming it with a plain black shirt and heels.
