Stop! Hammertime!

Twenty years after rapper MC Hammer first made them popular, Victoria Beckham has developed a passion for harem pants.

During a recent shopping spree in New York City, the former Spice Girl slipped out of a black dress from her own collection and into a pair of the slouchy-crotched trousers.

Wearing an off-the-shoulder "Flashdance" top and a "Do these make me look fat?" expression, the singer -- who usually favors skinny jeans and pencil skirts, but has previously dipped into this trend -- stepped out of the dressing room to model the baggy pants for soccer stud hubby David Beckham.

And it seems the Armani underwear model thought his wife looked "2 Legit 2 Quit" -- she was seen signing a receipt for her purchases before leaving the store.

This was the second day in a row that the fashionista gave her credit card a workout during her visit to the Big Apple: Dressed in a daringly low-cut top, she hit up boutiques and a Whole Foods with an assistant on Monday.

Her assistant was along for the ride on Tuesday as well, and even carried 36-year-old Beckham's handbag for her.

A Personal Handbag Holder? Now that's a trend we'd like to see catch on!
