Victoria Beckham shows off her edgy elegant style.

She's a singer, fashion designer, reality star, style icon and most of all: mother. Victoria Beckham wears many hats--all of them stylish, of course. Recently returning to the public eye with her post-baby slender form, Mrs. Becks has been showing off some of her latest fashion-forward looks. She's not the only celebrity mom who finds time to express herself through fashion, however. Posh adds her edgy elegance to these boho-chic, eclectic punk and rocker glamor girls. So who's got the best look?

Victoria: The former Spice girl hasn't just been showing off her own sleek style; she's got new baby Harper dolled up as well. The two even attended Fashion Week together, Mom in a hot pink sheath dress and Baby Becks in an adorable black-and-white gingham two-piece ensemble. On a recent trip to FAO Schwartz, the pair once again turned heads with their mix of modern and retro styles. Harper had a different plaid this time in a kicky swing-coat style dress and matching headband; Victoria adopted the latest trend of bold color pairing with an orange and black top, navy pencil skirt and black platforms. The sexy style maven has gotten the most buzz for her latest runway look, a color-block strapless blue and black dress paired with leather legwarmers and stiletto Louboutins.

Alicia Keys: The talented R&B star has a yin/yang balance with her wardrobe, adopting a rocker chic vibe for casual outings and then going full-out glam for awards ceremonies and big events. Keys adds her own personal style to a simple T-shirt and jeans with a black cropped jacket, colorful headscarf and bold jewelry. She even makes white jeans work with layered Ts and the presence of her precious baby boy Egypt in mini overalls. Keys loves adding an edgy vibe and bling to many forms of the Little Black Dress, but can also rock the soft and pretty princess look. She's got a hairstyle for every mood, including this sky-high swooping pompadour.

Gwen Stefani: The No Doubt singer and fashion designer has always had a love of creating unexpected combinations of patterns and styles, like dressing up track pants and a tank top with '40s pin-up hair and make-up and an overload of blingy jewelry. Even for just a romp on the park swings with son Zuma, Gwen dons an adorable tartan-edged peasant skirt, black blazer and suitable-for-gardening black flat boots. The mom-and-son duo have also been spotted in some interesting camouflage combos, and younger son Kingston joined in the fun with some some more tartan ensembles from Gwen's new Harajuku Mini line. Much of the doting mom's style and designs are inspired by Japanese fashion, including that cute top-knot hairdo.

Nicole Richie: Recently named "Influencer of the Year" in the world of fashion accessories, designer Richie has created clothing, footwear and handbag lines inspired largely by her own moods and taste. One consistent trend throughout her style history has been everything floaty and drapey. Add her trend-setting beaded headbands and you've got a little bit hippie, a little bit Egyptian. As she's matured, so has her style, and the petite blonde has added some sleeker looks and adopted the bold color block style that's the '80s reborn. Throw in the signature giant sunglasses, sweet daughter Harlow in pink ballet leotard, and you're good to go.

What do you think, omg! fashionistas? Which celebrity mom has the most fashion-forward style, and whose closet would you love to borrow from?
