Gwyneth Paltrow says former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is a "very important designer" in the fashion sphere.

The Iron Man 3 actress, 40, was crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine this week. But Gwyneth says it's Victoria's dresses that help her feel ever-attractive.

"I think she makes beautiful things; very feminine and very flattering clothes," Gwyneth told the British edition of Marie Claire magazine. "I always love a girl who reinvents herself. I think it’s really nice and it’s great that everybody has embraced her clothes and she’s having another act as this very important designer, I think it’s great."

Since the launch of the former Spice Girl's Spring/Summer 2009 line of dresses at New York Fashion Week, Victoria's collections have consistently received strong reviews. And Gwyneth isn't her only celebrity fan.

Eva Longoria recently told Marie Claire: "I look fantastic because I’m wearing Victoria Beckham’s dresses. I think Victoria’s talent is unmatched by anyone right now."

Meanwhile, Victoria is rumoured to be on cusp of landing her first US Vogue cover.

The fashion designer formerly known as Posh Spice is a regular on the cover of the British edition of the magazine, but is yet to grace the cover of the American version.

"Posh is in talks about an upcoming cover and a feature where she'll talk about leaving LA, David's move to Paris and her new daughter," a source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper. "It's a big deal, and she wants it. Editor Anna Wintour enjoys making people work for it."

If the shoot goes ahead, Victoria is expected to be styled head-to-toe in her own label's designs, helping her promote her clothing line across the Atlantic, on top of giving a revealing interview about her personal life.
