We love these pictures of Victoria Beckham and her BFF Ken Paves

We had to do a double take this morning when we saw Victoria Beckham‘s latest Instagram snap.

The 40-year-old fashion designer is seen cutely sitting on the knee of a male friend who she flirtatiously blows an air-kiss to whilst relaxing on what looks to be a fancy aeroplane. AND they’re wearing matching slippers!

Victoria‘s hubby David Beckham doesn’t need to worry though – the fella is just Ken Paves, celeb hair stylist and long-term BFF to Posh.

‘Traveling in style x vb #VBTour @kenpaves,’ Victoria captioned the sweet photo.

You may well recognise American coiffeur Ken. He’s been a regular fixture by Victoria‘s side for several years and the two have formed a seriously close friendship.

When David is away, Victoria turns to Ken. She’s often attended industry events with Ken as her date and the hairdresser frequently accompanies Vic on her travels around the world.

Ken recently showed his love for his bestie in an adorable Instagram post. During an outing to New York Fashion Week, he posted a photo with Victoria and wrote: ‘Always inspired by my dear friend @VictoriaBeckham#NYC #NYFW #Muse’

How sweet! We love seeing the pictures Victoria and Ken share from their adventures together. In November the pals proved that they’re actually pretty down-to-earth by getting a train to Manchester for a visit to Selfridges.

They’ve also been snapped singing at a piano in Singapore and having a laugh on what appeared to be a chat show in China.

Victoria loves to poke fun at her buddy and captioned that particular picture: ‘Does anyone else think that @kenpaves looks like@Oprah or @ellenshow ? Fun in Beijing x vb.’ See, Vic can have a laugh when she wants to!

For all their jokes though, it’s clear that Ken and Posh‘s friendship is very special. Vic recently wrote about the hair stylist: ‘You and me are more than friends, we are like a small gang.’ Nawww!

Given that they’ve been pals since 2006, Ken has been around Victoria through several different stages in her life. He was seen hanging out with her when she lived in the States during David‘s time with football club LA Galaxy and seemed to become a valued member of the Beckham family.

In fact Ken is so close to Victoria‘s clan that he’s even been snapped carrying Harper during a day out with Posh‘s children. Adorbs!
