Victoria Beckham has divided fashion fans on social media after she unveiled a striking dress from her latest collection, which features a unique two-in-one design.

The designer, 48, could be seen posing by a pool in an Instagram photo in the head-turning blue and red dress from her spring/summer 2023 collection.

It featured a sky blue front section with a deep 'V' neckline and frill detailing, along with an exposed back and dramatic coral-red train.

Beckham posted the colour-block look, which is available to purchase online for £1,250, to her Instagram, captioning the image: "Just lounging round the pool in this casual little number!"

Colour-blocking has become somewhat of a recognisable signature for Beckham, who started her eponymous fashion label in 2008.

Stints in New York, London and Paris elevated the brand to a regular on Fashion Weeks schedules in the time since, and the mother-of-four successfully made the transition from former Spice Girl dipping her toe in the industry to competitive fashion label in three years, winning the Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2011.

But despite several bonafide designer credentials, the objective nature of fashion means, unfortunately, you will never please everyone.

So when she took to the social media platform to share her new design, it caused quite a stir in the comments section.

Some fans were left divided over how the dress is put together, with several users commenting on the split between the apron-style front and red carpet-style train.

"Beautiful red back then it gets totally wrecked by that blue monstrosity...," one person harshly commented, before recognising that "everyone has individual taste."

Another shared "no thanks" and a third "what on earth is that,: while a fourth, not appreciating the unusual shape of the dress added: "sorry looks like you've run out of material".

Elsewhere, recognising the the colour combination, one user joked that "Spiderman was the inspiration".

However, others shared their praise for the design and especially the complimentary shades with two separate social media users telling her she looked like Wonder Woman and Superwoman.

Another declared her "the queen of colour blocking" and a fourth commented "stunning colours, beautiful design".

Additionally, others deemed the look "absolutely gorgeous", a "stunning little number" and "so sexy".

It comes after the former Posh Spice shared that a black and ivory version of the same dress was "one of my favourite pieces from my new season collection".

Posting an image of her walking up a staircase in the frock on Instagram, she wrote: "Who doesn’t love a backless dress!"

Once more, it left fans split, with influencer Stephanie Shepherd commenting that it was "insaneeeee", while another social media user joked "it looks like a cooking apron over a black dress".
