It's a twist on a classic style – and one Leona Lewis managed to fumble earlier this week.
But Victoria Beckham proved she was up to the task of wearing a cape-style trench coat today as she strut through Los Angeles International Airport.
The pop star-turned-fashion designer prepared for her flight to London in chic outerwear, stiletto sling-backs and oversized sunglasses.

Victoria had earlier taken to Twitter to ask her fans their thoughts on her wardrobe for the day.

Hugging her petite frame, the trench

shame in the ensemble, clearly more concerned about style over comfort.
Her hair tied back into a low
ponytail, Victoria accessorised the look with a large gold watch and a
vamp manicure, a swath of gloss dotted onto her lips.
Her outing came two days after Leona Lewis made a fantastic fashion mishap in London on Friday.

Victoria meanwhile has a busy week ahead.
She is rumoured to be attending the
launch of Spice Girls' musical Viva Forever, but has so far only teased fans about a
possibility of a reunion with her former bandmates at the event.
