In a truly spectacular #TBT moment yesterday, Victoria Beckham posted a photo on Twitter of the dress she wore on her first-ever date with David in 1997. Along with a shot of the deep-orange, suede minidress, she wrote: “Look what I found! The dress I wore on my first date with David!! X so cute!!” Naturally, five heart emojis in a varying rainbow of colors followed. As for the frock, it is, er, fairly "retro" to say the least—but clearly, David was charmed by it.
Victoria, then Victoria Adams, first met at a Manchester United charity “football” match in 1997, though David has since confessed that he had a crush on the starlet much earlier. Later that year, “Posh ’n’ Becks,” took a romantic trip to Nice, France,and announced their engagement less than a year later in January 1998.
It’s one thing to see a couple as happily in love as they were in the ‘90s (as the above 1999 photo would indicate), but it’s quite another to see that same couple so very swoony 17 years later. It’s a good day for love.
