Everyone is loving Victoria Beckham’s high fashion Pokémon characters

Over the last few weeks, it’s felt like everyone in the world is talking about Pokémon Go. Your colleagues, your siblings, your friends, even your mum: suddenly, all anyone cares about is catching them all.

Someone who you might not have expected to jump on the bandwagon is Victoria Beckham. But if our years of following pop culture have taught us anything at all, it’s that you can never predict what the erstwhile Posh Spice will do. (Back in the day, after all, who would have foreseen that she would become a highly respected fashion designer?)

VB recently tweeted an incredible image of high fashion icons in Pokémon form – including herself in there, of course.

American Vogue editor Anna Wintour was merged with Charmander to become Charwintour; Vogue international editor Suzy Menkes became a jigglypuff, complete with Menkes’s trademark quiff; and Karl Lagerfeld is Karl Lagertales, a nod to ‘silver fox’ Pokemon Ninetails. VB herself is depicted as Victoria Mewkham – referencing Mew, one of the rarest Pokémon of all.

The images weren’t created by Beckham, but by fashion site Stylight.co.uk, whose other campaigns include Zoolander emojis and celebrities depicted as characters from Game of Thrones
