Victoria Beckham couldn’t hold back her tears on Friday as she broke down while taking to the runway of her Paris Fashion Week debut show – hugging her husband David.
The fashion designer, 48, was overwhelmed as she reached out to give a hug to her husband David – who sat in the front row to support, alongside their three youngest children – Harper Seven, 11, Romeo, 20, and Cruz, 17.
And also in the front row was Brooklyn and his wife Nicola, who turned up at the show half an hour early to show their support – despite ongoing rumours of a family fued.
The married couple arrived before the show started so they could wish Victoria luck – with ‘lots of hugs’ going on when they were all reunited for the first time since this summer, said a source in the room.
Afterwards, the family got together to celebrate with cocktails, as a source said: ‘There were a lot of smiles and a lot of love in the room, it was a lovely family atmosphere.’

Brooklyn and Nicola were also reunited with Victoria’s parents, Jackie and Tony at the debut show.
Victoria was absolutely delighted to have Gigi and Bella Hadid walking the catwalk – regarding it as a ‘real coup’ – despite a potential awkwardness for Nicola, who used to date their brother Anwar Hadid.
The model sisters looked flawless as they took to the runway of the show in VB designs, taking the catwalk by storm in the French capital.
And Victoria herself took to the runway at the end of the show, appearing overcome with emotion during the appearance as she stopped at the front row to embrace family and friends.
The designer, 48, held both hands to cover her face, bowing her head down as she struggled to hold it together.
Reaching into the audience as she stopped halfway down the catwalk, a teary Victoria clung on to David – as best pal Eva Longoria also reached out for a supportive cuddle.
She donned a chic black midi dress from her collection for the appearance,adding a pair of black tights and stiletto heels.

David and Victoria’s three youngest children not only showed their support by attending, but also filmed a sweet video for their mum – as Harper stood between Cruz and Romeo, who wrapped an arm around her.
‘Hi mummy, congratulations. I hope you have the best day,’ said Harper to the camera as her brothers smiled.
But missing from the family display was eldest son Brooklyn, with fans still remaining in the dark about whether he and wife Nicola Peltz have made their way to the show – with no sign of the couple at the bash.
She took to Instagram on Friday to post a behind-the-scenes snap just hours before her first ever runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
Before revealing that she was putting the ‘finishing touches’ on her much-anticipated collection after being away from the catwalk for two years.
As she prepares to mark the milestone, her family and friends have been rallying around to support her, with best pal Eva looking ultra chic on arrival to the show.
The actress donned a satin mini dress with mesh panels, with her chocolate brown locks pulled into a high ponytail as she beamed while heading into the show.
Eva carried the Victoria Beckham Chain Pouch Bag – which retails for £890 – and appeared to be a popular choice on the day, with Amber Valletta, Leonie Hanne and Poppy Delevingne carrying the same one to the show.

It comes after Victoria received a sweet message of support from husband David on Friday ahead of making her Paris Fashion Week debut.
In a cute Instagram post, the footballer, 47, penned: @VictoriaBeckham Paris baby! 16 years of hard work and we know how much today means to you. We are so proud.’
But fans still remain in the dark about whether her eldest son Brooklyn, 23, and his wife Nicola, 27, will attend the show, after Victoria extended an invite to the pair amid the ongoing feud. The pair are currently in Paris.
Reports of a feud between Victoria and Nicola have been rife for weeks, with Brooklyn’s wife adding fuel to the fire by claiming her mother-in-law ‘blanked’ her ‘for days’ during the design process of her wedding dress in a Grazia interview.

‘We are so proud’: David Beckham shared a heartfelt post for his wife ahead of the show
Taking to Instagram mere hours before her French fashion debut, Victoria took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes glimpse at her brand new collection.
She posted a snap of herself crouching down in front of a blurred out board of models as she put the final touches on her highly-anticipated show at 5.30pm.
Alongside the snap, she penned: ‘Putting the finishing touches to my #VBSS23 collection!
‘I’m so excited to invite you to watch my #PFW debut show live from 5:30PM CET on my Stories, TikTok, Youtube and on VictoriaBeckham.com. Woohoo!! We are in Paris!!! x VB.’

Romeo, 20, has also been seen out-and-about in Paris ahead of the show, taking to Instagram to show off his freshly cut hairstyle and day out exploring the French capital with his pals.
And it is not just her family who are flocking around to support her and gearing up to attend the show, as Victoria’s best friend Eva Longoria will also be in the crowds.
Designer Victoria took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday to re-share a picture of the invitation posted by Eva, and said she ‘couldn’t wait’ to see her pal at the show.
However, fans have been left in the dark about whether Victoria’s eldest son Brooklyn and his wife Nicola will attend the show amid the ongoing feud.

The couple have been seen exploring Paris in recent days and attended the Balmain show on Wednesday night, but have not confirmed if they will attend Victoria’s show after she extended them both invites.
On Thursday, Nicola gushed over her mother Claudia Heffner Peltz as she shared a sweet Instagram post of the former model.
Writing ‘I love my mom’, the heiress shared a snap as her husband Brooklyn Beckham, 23, gave mother-in-law Claudia a cuddle during their trip to Paris.
Sharing a video of her mother in the first slide of the carousel, Nicola filmed as Claudia used a handbag as a makeshift umbrella.
She questioned ‘how’s that working for you, mom?’, while the 67-year-old replied ‘Not really, but it’s fine’ – with her daughter giggling behind the camera.
Another shot in the post showed Brooklyn, who donned a bright red Balenciaga co-ord, beaming from ear-to-ear as he wrapped an arm around his mother-in-law.
The couple have been sharing a myriad of posts from Paris as they take in the city’s fashion week, but are yet to confirm whether they will attend Victoria’s show.
The show could be a chance to patch things up for the family, with reports that she and David have reached out to sort things.

A source said: ‘Frankly, the most interesting thing about Nicola is that she married into the Beckham clan. David and Victoria have both reached out to her to try and make peace, and find a way to get along.
‘David and Victoria would love to spend more time with their son and his wife, and be given the opportunity to welcome her into the fold, especially given that Brooklyn practically lives with his parents-in-law.’
If the couple do attend Victoria’s show in Paris, it will be the first time they have all been seen together since being snapped in Italy earlier this summer.
Reports of a feud between Victoria and Nicola have been rife for weeks, with Brooklyn’s wife adding fuel to the fire in a Grazia interview.
Family: On Thursday, Nicola gushed over her mother Claudia Heffner Peltz as she shared a sweet Instagram post of the former model
Claiming that she was ‘blanked for days’ by her mother-in-law during the design process of her wedding dress in the interview, the actress has reportedly enraged her in-laws by ‘washing the family dirty linen in public’.
Initially, rumours of a rift began as Nicola did not wear a Victoria Beckham wedding dress – which she claimed during the interview was her original plan, before being told the designer’s atelier could not make her a dress.
In the bombshell Grazia interview, she revealed: ‘We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn’t make it.’
Doting husband Brooklyn made his position clear amid the family feud, telling the publication that Nicola is his ‘number one priority’ and that they ‘have each other’s back 100 per cent’.
But insiders have said Nicola is pushing a ‘false narrative’, leaving Victoria ‘bemused’ as to why she keeps ‘stoking the rumours of a feud’ rather than shutting them down.
And Nicola telling her side of the story has led to even more family drama, with David defending his wife Victoria as he had a rare confrontation with son Brooklyn.
According to MailPlus writer Alison Boshoff, David told Brooklyn ‘we don’t do this in our family’ as he ‘lost his temper’ with the budding chef.
A source said: ‘I don’t think David has ever lost his temper with Brooklyn or had cause to talk to him harshly, but that has now finally happened.
‘He had it out with him and told him: ‘We don’t do this in our family – and you know that we don’t do this in our family.’

Chic evening wear was always going to struggle during the pandemic, and reports this summer showed the label had £54million in debt, and had to cut prices and staff to stay afloat.
But a successful cosmetics line, launched in 2019, has helped trim losses, and the team hopes to break even in the coming months.
Victoria has called her personal fame a ‘double-edged sword’ for the business.
‘Are other brands under the scrutiny that mine is under every time we file (results)? Absolutely not,’ she told Vogue.
‘But how many other brands have the luxury of getting the attention when they want it?’
