Victoria Beckham scaled a ladder in five-inch heels to put an angel on top of her Christmas tree.

The fashion designer - who has children Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old Harper with husband David Beckham - took to her Instagram account to post an image of her putting what appeared to be a Posh Spice doll on her tree, and warned others to be careful over the festive period.

In a post accompanying the image, she wrote: ''Christmas can be dangerous fashion bunnies!#VBXMAS x vb (sic)''

The picture features the 39-year-old beauty wearing a sleek black pencil dress as she places the doll on the tree, which is propped up in plastic box full of cosmetics.

The former Spice Girls singer appears to be in a studio rather than her and David's London home as the brunette stunner is surrounded nothing other than a pink backdrop.

Earlier this month, Victoria posted an Instagram video of her walking up to the tree, which was surrounded by two others in the studio, and delving into a handbag situated underneath the festive fir.

In a message accompanying the clip, she simply wrote: ''#VBXMAS x vb (sic)''

The post came just days after she had taken to Instagram to upload close-up footage of her putting the aforementioned doll on top of the tree.
