Victoria Beckham toasts her Parisian triumph (and thawing wedding feud) with shots of £600 tequila
It was a double celebration for Victoria Beckham in the city of love.
Her very first show at Paris Fashion Week was made even better by the thawing of the feud with her daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz, who cheered her on from the front row.
To mark the occasion, Ms Beckham, who would be ‘delighted’ with the presence of Miss Peltz and her eldest son Brooklyn, fended off shots of Don Julio 1942 tequila – which costs £600 a bottle.
The 48-year-old also treated her guests to a steak and fries dinner at her favorite Girafe restaurant, located near the Eiffel Tower.
However, the designer – who dressed for the occasion in a £982 midi dress from her own collection – enjoyed a rather healthy meal of steamed fish.
Shortly after showcasing her Spring 2023 fashion range on the catwalk, Ms Beckham led her own fashion show, featuring husband David and daughter Harper, as she left her £12,000-a-night hotel , La Reserve, to get to the after-party.

She paired her bright green dress with red peep toe boots, priced at £955 from her brand, while the former England footballer opted for an ice blue suit and shoulder bag.
Meanwhile, 11-year-old Harper wore a £2,000 silk and lace dress from her mother’s 2021 collection, with a pair of bright yellow trainers.
The Beckhams’ two other sons – budding popstar Cruz, 17, and footballer Romeo, 20 – also attended the celebration dinner, with Cruz in double denim and Romeo in black cargo pants and a sweatshirt.
Among the celebrities present to help Ms Beckham mark the occasion was Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, as well as model Gigi Hadid, who had previously starred on the show.
Ms Beckham’s parents, Jackie and Tony, were also present, along with staff from her fashion brand.

Although Brooklyn and Nicola attended the parade, they did not join in the fun at Giraffe, opting instead to meet some friends.
Like her brothers, Brooklyn adopted an understated look for the evening, appearing in jeans and a sweater, while Nicola teamed a skin-tight leather dress with gravity-defying white platforms.
Despite their absence from dinner, sources close to the Beckhams say there has been a “thaw” in relations between the former Spice Girl and her son’s new bride.
They admit ‘time has been a great healer’ for the once close family after a rift developed following the lavish wedding of heiress Brooklyn, 23 and 27, in Florida in May. The bride later claimed Ms Beckham had changed her mind about her wedding dress design.
‘If Brooklyn and Nicola didn’t want to be [at the show], they wouldn’t have been,” a friend said. “Families are complicated and there was a real culture shock between the two parties and things couldn’t be worked out because of the thousands of miles between them all.
“But as soon as they were in the same room, things were much better.”
“Who knows from here, but it certainly put smiles on David and Victoria’s faces. They adore their children and losing their intimate relationships is their worst nightmare.
“It broke both of their hearts. They tried to deal with all the fallout with kid gloves. Now they think they’ve made a breakthrough.
