Though we first met her as Posh Spice of The Spice Girls, she’s since become a fashion icon. And, fashion is one of the reasons why Victoria Beckham will be receiving an OBE award — an award given solely to individuals that make a difference in the world. In fact, the award is so prestigious, that only those who fall on Queen Elizabeth’s New Year’s honors list receive it.

Beckham was not only noted based on her fashion, but also her impressive charity work. Her husband, David, actually received the honor 13 years ago.

OBE stands for Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Impressed? We thought so.

If she wants to know how it feels to receive the award, all she needs to do is ask her husband. After David received his for his athletic achievements, he made sure that his feelings on the honor weren’t kept a secret.

One thing to note about the nomination? Well — Victoria Beckham wasn’t supposed to announce it quite yet. In fact, it was a breach of etiquette, as far as the ceremony is concerned. So, while it was a faux pas, it hopefully wasn’t a sign of disrespect.

The official list is expected to be announced tomorrow. We can’t wait to see who else will be honored!
