Victoria Beckham dress

The dress VB wore on her first date with David


You know that brilliant moment when you find something in your wardrobe that you'd totally forgotten you ever had? Well, it looks like Victoria Beckham just experienced that very thing, when she went for a rummage in her (no doubt cavernous) wardrobe, and found this gem – the dress she wore on her first date with David.

The retro style burnt orange suede minidress has transported us straight back to the late nineties, what with it's buckle belt and Sixties look. We can almost smell the whiff of Impulse spray, and see Geri Halliwell's Union Jack dress by just looking at the picture. In fact, any Spice Girls super fans will know that this is also the dress VB wore to promote Spice World. Just FYI.

David and Victoria Beckham in 1998

'Look what I found! The dress I wore on my first date with David!! X so cute!!  X vb', Victoria wrote on Twitter alongside the picture.

And whatever happened on that night in 1997 (we can do without the full details, thanks), two years later Posh and Becks were married. So that dress was definitely a good call...
