Victoria's designs don't make an appearance at the Academy Awards - except on Posh

Victoria Beckham was really looking forward to seeing the stars’ dresses on the Oscars red carpet last night.

The fashion designer, whose frocks are regularly worn by top celebs, is a big fan of two actresses in particular – and could well have been hoping they’d step out in Victoria Beckham creations.

‘Happy Oscar day! Excited to see what Rooney Mara and Michelle Williams will wear x vb,’ Tweeted Victoria.

Disappointingly for Posh, Rooney, 26, chose a plunging white Givenchy gown for the occasion, while Michelle, 31, matched the carpet in her Louis Vuitton number.

But Victoria isn’t too downhearted – stars usually call in a number of different options and the 37-year-old’s design studio isn’t large enough to cater for personal needs.

‘We do have requests in from stylists for the Oscars, but as our team is so small we don’t have the opportunity to custom-make dresses like the bigger fashion houses,’ said Victoria‘s spokesperson earlier this month.

‘Nor do we have the big budgets to pay people to endorse our brand, so it’s really a waiting game and we won’t know until the night if any of our dresses will be worn.’
