Maybe she should have just worn higher heels? Victoria Beckham used a ladder to decorate her Christmas tree, but decided to also keep her sky-high heels on.

The 39-year-old fashion designer shared a photo of herself risking her safety to deck the halls on Instagram on Dec. 12. "Christmas can be dangerous fashion bunnies! #VBMAS x vb," she captioned the shot.

In the picture, Beckham appears to be on the set of a photo shoot that features a pink tree, sitting on top of a box of beauty products in front of a hot pink backdrop. She stands on a high metal ladder wearing a tight black pencil dress and black pumps with a metallic heel while trying to place the "angel" on top of the tree. In this case, the tree-topper is actually a Posh Spice Girls Barbie doll.

Hopefully the former Spice Girls star remembers to put something under the tree for husband David Beckham. Us Weekly caught up with the retired soccer player at the Class of 92 premiere in London on Dec. 1, and he shared what he's hoping to get for Christmas this year. "I've asked for a Stone Roses documentary this year, so that's something I'm hoping to get that from Santa," he said. "I just like getting stuff that the kids have bought. Their ideas for presents are different because they're young."

The couple has been married for 14 years now, and David joked with Us about whether he's comfortable enough to admit to his wife if her butt looks fat in something.

"It's not something I've had to say ... yet," he joked. "But you never know! After Christmas ..."
