Victoria Beckham is Britain's top entrepreneur

LONDON - From Spice Girl to fashion designer to top entrepreneur. That is how far Victoria Beckham has come, according to a list of Britain's 100 most successful entrepreneurs of this year.

The former Spice Girl has topped the list by British magazine Management Today, five years after setting up her fashion business.

The accolade was given based on turnover growth and job creation over the past five years, and her fashion brand Victoria Beckham turned over £30 million (S$61.7 million) last year, a rise of 2,900 per cent over that period, according to the magazine.

Her staff has also leapt from three to 100 since she started her fashion label in 2008.

Beckham, 40, last month opened her first stand-alone boutique in Mayfair, central London.

Andrew Saunders, deputy editor of Management Today, reportedly said: "She's got a real business, some design talent and some business nous. She gets a lot of stick for being a celeb fashionista, but I don't think that's fair."
