Are those boots really made for walking (with a baby)? Victoria Beckham teeters in platforms as she holds baby Harper

Highest of heels: Victoria Beckham was spotted strolling in New York this morning with baby Harper, wearing some very high platform boots

It's a good thing Victoria Beckham is an expert in walking in high heels.

The designer took her newborn baby Harper for a stroll in New York this morning wearing a pair of platform boots that most mere mortals would struggle to stay upright in.

The 37-year-old was spotted wearing flats when she was first spotted out after Harper's birth, but quickly reverted to her cherished heels in no time.

With Manhattan full to the brim with fans and photographers during Fashion Week, Victoria has preferred to hold her baby daughter when she ventures out rather than pushing her in a pram.

This morning she cradled her daughter and covered her in a light grey blanket as they ventured out.

Beckham looked sleek in a pair of black skinny jeans from her own denim line and a leather jacket which she wore with the towering platforms.

She is hard at work preparing to show her Spring/Summer 2012 collection tomorrow morning at the New York Public Library.

And Victoria has ensured her already stylish daughter is not left out of the fashionable fun.

She tweeted yesterday: 'Casting in NY! Today I'm wearing #victoriabeckham and Baby Harper wearing Makie, excited for FW! x VB.'

The two-month-old tot was showing off her baby style yesterday in an adorable black and white outfit.

Victoria's older children Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz have remained in LA, where they were spotted watching father David on the pitch for LA Galaxy yesterday.

Victoria flew to the East Coast with Harper this week to make final preparations for her highly anticipated runway show.

During their Thursday outing the mother-daughter duo stopped by The Plaza for lunch in between meetings for the show.

Victoria gave a hint of what can be expected from the collection and said she had tried to create 'the perfect little summer dress, something that was fun, something that was girly, something that was easy to wear, something that would take you from day through the night.'
