Chaos erupted at Paris Fashion Week as Victoria Beckham’s showcase was disrupted by Peta activists.

Storming the runway, the demonstrators caused carnage as the former Spice Girls star debuted her Fall-Winter 2024/2025 Women’s ready-to-wear collection on Friday (March 1).

Peta was protesting against the star’s use of leather in her fashion brand, making their anger quite clear with placards.

‘Viva vegan leather!’, their signs read, with the protesters also wearing tank tops boasting the slogan, ‘Animals aren’t fabric’.

Fashion designer Victoria is known for incorporating leather into her clothes and accessories.

She sells items made of Nappa leather (from lambs) and shiny calf leather bags.

The show – which was being streamed live to Victoria’s millions of followers on her Instagram account – offered the models who were walking the catwalk at the time a second opportunity for another strut.

Meanwhile, the protestors were swiftly removed by security.

Following the incident, Peta UK uploaded a video to X, showing their demonstrators walking out of the audience with their banners in the air.

‘No garment is worth slaughtering and skinning a sensitive animal’, their post read.

Tagging Victoria, they added: ‘@victoriabeckham, wanna be the champion of vegan leather instead?’

In a follow-up, Peta wrote: ‘Spice up your collections, @victoriabeckham, with ethical and eco-friendly high-end leather made from apples, grapes, pineapples, and mushrooms. Animals are NOT fabric.’

Having now disrupted shows in Paris, Milan, New York, and London, this marked the fourth fashion show disrupted by Peta entities this season.

‘We don’t plan on stopping until the fashion industry drops animal skins!’, the group declared.

The front row wasn’t short of stars to witness the protest, as Victoria, 49, had plenty of family members there supporting her.

Husband David Beckham, 48, was in attendance, along with youngest Harper, 12, sons Cruz, 19, and Brooklyn, 24, and daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz, 29.

Notably absent was son Romeo. The 21-year-old hit headlines recently and he’s now seemingly staying in London amid the fallout of his split from girlfriend Mia Regan.  

As for Victoria herself, VB remained poised despite her show being catapulted into mayhem.

She took to the runway herself looking typically stylish in a black sleeveless top and wide-legged trousers. 

Victoria powered through as she walked on crutches after suffering a nasty injury.

The Wannabe hitmaker recently dropped a weight on her foot in the gym, causing a ‘clean break’ – ouch!

Revealing the extent of the issue, hubby David shared a snap of his wife’s medical boot earlier this week.

‘Apparently my wife’s little accident in the gym was a clean break,’ the retired footballer wrote on his Instagram Story alongside a sympathetic sad-faced emoji.
