She may be dressed as an angel but Victoria Beckham forgets to clean her ears

Victoria Beckham did her best to look heavenly as she arrived at Manchester's Harvey Nichols in Manchester today to launch her new perfume.

The former Spice Girls was dressed in all white and from the front, appeared to be wearing a pair of angel wings.

As Posh turned on her heels, she revealed the back of her dress was curiously covered in fur.

But the angelic-looking star is not always so squeaky clean.

A night earlier she was in dire need of a cotton bud as she headed off for dinner at Ithaca restaurant.

Not even her giant princess cut diamond stud earrings were enough to distract onlookers from the unsightly grime caught in her ears.

The 34-year-old looked otherwise stylish in a fashion-forward full length satin catsuit which showed off her slim figure.

She was treating her management team and perfume consultants to a night out.

They arrived at the top restaurant at around 9pm and as soon as they sat down they ordered four £650 bottles of the Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs were ordered right away as soon as they sat down.

Later a further eight bottles of the vintage champagne were ordered during the evening.

The party dined off the five star menu of Japanese cuisine from dishes that include Chilean Sea Bass, Wagyu Beef and soft shell crab.

Posh opted for tuna sashimi and edame beans for her starter, and char-grilled Jumbo Madagascan Prawns for her main course.

After the meal the whole group went upstairs to one of the bars for some of the superb cocktails.

But Victoria stayed on the champagne and they stayed till around midnight. The bill at the end of the evening came to just over £10,000.

The mother-of-three had earlier said she was looking forward to being back in the city.

'It was meant to be in London but I said no,' Victoria told the Manchester Evening News.

'I said please can I go to Manchester instead? I love Manchester, it's got a really good feel to it.

'So I thought why not - I usually spend a lot of time in London.

'I'm really excited about coming back because, of course, it's where I met David.'
