For her intimate interview with Elle UK, Victoria Beckham talks family Life, building her fashion empire and working harder than ever in the magazine’s May issue.
Renowned for her accomplishments in fashion and music, the Victoria is not slowing down now even at 43.
Read excerpts from her interview:
On why working in fashion makes her happier than her career in pop
Being in the Spice Girls was so much fun, but I was never the best singer or dancer. I learned an enormous amount during that time, though: the staging, the lighting, the costumes – the package excited me. But I love fashion – this is what I’m genuinely interested in… When I look back at my past self, [the way I dressed and behaved] was probably a sign of my insecurities. I feel quite confident in myself now – getting older doesn’t bother me.
Outside of work, when asked about her social life
I don’t tend to go to parties, but if I do go out for dinner, I like to have a drink and really have fun… I’m really good value at a dinner party – I want to relax and have a laugh. I like to have fun, and I think that often surprises people.
On how David is supportive when it comes to childcare:
Yes, he’s great. During fashion week, when I’m working, the children will be in New York and he’s already planned to take them to museums then out for dinner on Saturday night, so he is very good at that sort of thing – as am I. That’s how you can show your support in a marriage, by saying, ‘You know what, I’ve got this.’ That’s what makes a good partnership.
