It’s the £2,095 question. Who looks best in Victoria Beckham’s dress - the designer herself? Or one of her many celebrity customers?

Is Mrs Beckham being outmanoeuvred in the Style Stakes by the very people she is designing for?

The latest VB creation to get triple exposure is a slinky hourglass, in a cashmere-blend, with exaggerated shoulders, a waist-whittling, bias-cut, peplum, a skintight, pencil skirt, and a price-tag of £2,095. The dress is called the ‘Carmontelle’, possibly a reference to the 18th century French artist and architect, Louis Carrogis Carmontelle, who painted Mozart.

The ‘Carmontelle’ sold out within a week of being posted on’s website. “Victoria’s dresses always sell very quickly,” said a spokesperson.

The ‘Carmontelle’ is not the first VB dress to win rave reviews and spark multiple celebrity sightings. Earlier this month, Carol Vorderman showed off her curves in another one of VB’s ‘ ‘Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah’ shapely specials - so-called because of the serpentine zipper which snakes down the spine. Other members of the VB fan club include J.Lo, Madonna, Heidi Klum, Brooke Shields, Katherine Jenkins and Blake Lively.

Victoria Beckham, Elle Macpherson or Carol Vorderman?
