What to Know About Victoria Beckham’s 50th Birthday

A 50th birthday is a major milestone in any woman’s life — though not everyone has to step into it like Victoria Beckham, who not long ago broke her foot in a gym accident. Still, Mrs. Beckham was determined to celebrate in style in London on Saturday, when, at least for one night, she replaced the medical boot she has been wearing for months with pointed toe stilettos, visible panties and a long sheer sea-foam-green gown from her own label.

“As I get ready to step into 50 (in heels, of course!), I feel so incredibly blessed to have reached this milestone,” she wrote in an Instagram post last week. “Blessed, but also accomplished and deeply content. This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter, and I’m only just getting started.”

Here’s what happened at the big birthday bash thrown by the fashion designer and former Spice Girl.

The Location

The party took place at Oswald’s, an exclusive private member’s club owned by Robin Birley in the Mayfair neighborhood of London. Mr. Birley, London’s king of clubs, named Oswald’s after his grandfather, whose portrait hangs behind the reception desk.

The club is known to attract a who’s who of guests. When Beyoncé was in town last year, she headed to Oswald’s. When Princess Eugenie celebrated her wedding anniversary, she did it at Oswald’s. When former prime ministers like Tony Blair and Boris Johnson book date nights with their wives? Oswald’s. Don’t believe us? You’ll have to take our word for it: The club has strict policies against taking photos and using social media accounts.
