Victoria Beckham Joins Twitter, Is Nominated For BFA

We never thought we’d see the day. No, really. We never thought we’d see the day when Victoria Beckham deigned to update the masses on her whereabouts, thoughts, and dreams in 140 characters or fewer, but it’s finally here. The designer formerly known as Posh Spice has joined Twitter.

According to WWD, Beckham will be tweeting from the handle @VBFashionWeek, news which coincides nicely with her British Fashion Award nomination for Best Designer Brand.

Beckham’s nomination is certainly a coup — her brand is up against Burberry, Mulberry, and Pringle of Scotland — but of all the so-called “celebrity lines” we’ve seen launch in the last few years, she’s certainly doing it right. More than anything, Beckham appears to be keeping the “celebrity” aspect of it decidedly under the radar, while designing modern, classic styles which no shortage of celebrities seem willing to wear.

We wish her luck, but we’re more curious about her tweeting habits. Her first update, from 16 hours ago, reads:

Finally!! Leaving for UK tomorrow “Airport is my runway!!!” Can’t wait for fashion week! In love and light x VB

Call us crazy, but we can’t quite picture Beckham actually doing the tweeting. Though, there are worse jobs than being paid to follow Victoria Beckham around while feverishly typing mini-missives on a BlackBerry keyboard… right?
