Louise Redknapp steps out in Victoria Beckham Spring Summer 2011 design


That's so last year! Louise Redknapp stands out from the crowd in a Posh frock (but it's from the 2011 range)

She may be married to a former footballer but it seems Louise Redknapp can't keep up with another footballer's wife.

The 37-year-old star arrived at a charity ball wearing a Victoria Beckham design from her Spring Summer 2011 collection.

Despite the former Spice Girl having launched her latest collection entitled Victoria /01/31/article-2094136-11876834000005DC-652_468x807.jpg” width=”468″ height=”807″ alt=”Last season's trend: Louise Redknapp wore a Victoria Beckham dress last night which was from the former Spice Girl's Spring/Summer 2011 collection” class=”blkBorder” />

The odd garment is described on Victoria's website as a V-neck bell dress and features a plunging neckline.

However, the bright shiny material resembled the famous purple chocolate from a tin of Quality Street and the loose skirt wasn't so flattering either.

Louise teamed the dress with a pair of thick black tights and matching heels and carried a black clutch bag too.

The mother-of-two made sure she was sporting a tan for the Retail Trust ball which was held at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Louise – who has been married to Jamie Redknapp for 13 years – is known for generally getting her style right but last night she failed to do so.

Perhaps the Eternal star could get in touch with Victoria and update her wardrobe with a dress from the latest collection which mainly features above-the-knee shift dresses.

Or even better, Louise can take a trip to Harvey Nichols where the collection is exclusively being sold to UK shoppers.

Failing that, she was in the prime position to discuss the latest high street trends with Topshop mogul Sir Philip Green who was socialising at the retail event.

Also in attendance was Ultimo founder Michelle Mone – who made her first public appearance as a single lady since the break-up of her marriage – and TV and radio presenter Emma Forbes.
