We always knew Victoria Beckham was a driving force in the fashion world, but this? This we didn't see coming.

The Spice Girl formerly known as Posh has been appointed Creative Design Executive for Range Rover. Major, right?

Beckham's new post was announced at Range Rover's 40th Anniversary party at Kensington Palace's Orangery in London, where the British mum of three stunned the crowd in a tan asymmetrical drape-neck dress from her own collection and nude Brian Atwood for Victoria Beckham shoes.

"Victoria Beckham is a talented British fashion designer and is extremely knowledgeable about great design and trends," said Land Rover and Range Rover Design Director Gerry McGovern.

"Victoria understands luxury products -- she is a Range Rover fan and has been a Range Rover owner for many years."

Uh, so that qualifies her for the job? What about the fact that she's also been around the block a few times and has a lot of mileage on her? We kid, we kid!

"Her fashion business is now in its third year and her designs are loved by critics and bought by many of the most stylish women in the world," McGovern elaborated.

"I believe this appointment adds a new dimension to my design team as we continue to design products to appeal to a wider audience."

Clearly this marks one of Beckham's most prestigious career highlights, not counting her appearance this weekend as an underwater queen on "SpongeBob SquarePants."

"This is a very exciting collaboration," Beckham said of her new gig. "The classic British heritage of Range Rover and the effortless style, quality, and beauty is something I truly admire and also what i hope to achieve with my own brand. I am honored to take on this role and be part of the creative team."

Why do we get the feeling that the body of the vehicle is suddenly going to become really skinny?

Seriously, we at StyleList are thrilled about Beckham's new job, and salute her with a "zig-a-zig-ah!" But if Sporty Spice suddenly becomes Creative Design Executive for Jeep, something definitely ain't right.
