Victoria Beckham took us on an Insta-road trip to Manchester last night for the launch of her new Victoria Beckham store within Selfridges and it was MEGA

Victoria Beckham has been giving her Instagram and Twitter accounts the major cold shoulder over the past few weeks but last night the fashion designer made up for lost time in a big way... 

Embarking on a bit of a road-trip with a small, tight-knit team, VB took the train (yes, you read that right; TRAIN) from London to Manchester to see for herself the opening of her new Victoria Beckham store located within the city's Selfridges store and, as a hump day treat, she made sure to Instagram the entire evening much to the delight of her 3 million-strong following. Us included. 

The 40-year-old ex-Spice Girl made her way to the event with her whizz with a hairbrush hairdresser BFF Ken Paves, her make-up artist Sarah Lucero and a couple of the gals from team VB; needless to say, it looked like a riot. 

'Which way to Manchester Selfridges?? X vb #SelfridgesExchange #VBxSelfridges', Vic asked her ready-and-waiting following as she clutched a garment bag and a huge tote while her feet were littered with an array of rucksacks and handbags; clearly she's a bit of a bag lady just like us all; someone give that woman a hand!

When she finally found her way to the store, she was met by, you know, a small gathering. Overwhelmed, she said: 'What a welcome! Thank you @theofficialselfridges Manchester x vb #VBxSelfridges'. Well, it's not everyday you spot a Beckham down the shops now, is it?

Clearly over-the-moon with the turn-out, Victoria took a moment to snap the ultimate selfie; what we wouldn't give to be that girl with the rhinestone iPhone...

Getting down to business, Vic took a tour of the Victoria Beckham section of the store and she certainly did it in style. Sporting a long black maxi skirt of her own design and a white roll neck jumper, she looked effortlessly cool and the epitome of chic. 

Then, after all the hard work was done, she ended her evening away with one final shot of her hard-working 'gang'. Captioning the shot: 'Team VB x I love u xxxxx #VBxSelfridges', we reckon we'd definitely be open to working with Victoria full-time. After all, with First Class travel and designer handbags as standard, we could do worse...

The only thing that VB's Manchester road-trip was missing? Two words; DAVID. BECKHAM. Don't forget him next time, Vic.
