Victoria Beckham has been named the best dressed celebrity traveler by British Airways, which has unveiled its inaugural list of the World’s Best Dressed Travelers.
With her effortless ability to turn the airport arrivals lounge into her personal fashion runway, Victoria pipped Amal Clooney to the coveted top spot.
The list has been compiled by British Airways and top Hollywood fashion stylist Elizabeth Saltzman to celebrate the relationship between flying and fashion and to honour today’s globe-trotting trendsetters, spanning the worlds of film, music and entertainment. As one of the world’s leading global premium airlines, British Airways exudes style and sophistication with every detail of its cabins designed to make customers feel special.
Elizabeth, whose clients include Gwyneth Paltrow, Uma Thurman and Academy Award-nominated Saoirse Ronan, said: “Victoria Beckham always gets it right when flying and it’s so impressive. Usually there is a menswear element to her travel wardrobe, it is chic and sophisticated but still classic and comfortable.”
Featuring some of the world’s most famous female fashion icons, the British Airways World’s Best Dressed Travellers list is a mix of inspiring celebrities who travel in style and instigate major wardrobe envy every time they step on the plane. The judges reviewed hundreds of images of the international jet setters taken at airports around the world last year to help compile the list.

Abigail Comber, British Airways’ Head of Customer, said: “We’ve always been associated with travelling in style – most recently with our elegant, new short-haul cabins and our new-look First cabin, created especially for the 787-9 aircraft. We wanted to honour today’s style elite and those frequent flyers who embrace the enduring glamour and excitement of jumping on a plane.”
“Flying today is more accessible than ever,” added Elizabeth Saltzman. “People are more aware of themselves, whether it is their health and beauty regimes, time management or carbon footprint. The women on this list are all powerful examples of the modern world. Their style is classic with a personal twist. This is about the power of women and being able to balance it all.
