With the announcement of the Spice Girls reuniting for the closing ceremonies of the Olympics, I was even more excited to see Victoria Beckham on the cover of my Glamour magazine that came in the mail over the weekend. I am always intrigued by Victoria because she seems so closed off. I found her interview very interesting, especially because she seemed to open up more than usual. I thought it was great that Glamour asked her why she never smiles, and I thought her answer was even better.
Here is some of her interview and fab pictures for the Glamour September Fashion issue:
On guest editing: “It’s been exciting for me to see my ideas come to life, from type colors to photo selection to casting. I even made my own list of Glamour fashion Don’ts to keep out of the issue: boat shoes (unless of course you’re designer Alber Elbaz or on a boat!), Bermuda shorts, nose rings, Crocs, and American tan tights (that’s nude pantyhose to you).”
Why she never smiles: “Do you know, I don’t know?! I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] Fashion stole my smile! I’ve created this person. And I’m not saying that’s not me, but I wouldn’t say that’s the whole me…. It’s an armor that goes up.”
She loves 50 Shades of Grey: “I’m halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject. I don’t really want to talk to my mother about S&M.”
On having Becks in her runway audience: It was the first time! He’s always been working or training. But I was nervous about this show. I was feeling a lot of pressure. He phoned me the night before, and I just said, ‘I want you to come be with me. I want a cuddle. I really do.’ And it was great to have him there. I think he was surprised; I don’t usually bother him with much detail. And then you get there, and the models, the hair, the makeup…I think he was blown away!”
On her future & family: “I’d like everybody to be healthy and happy. I’d like to be growing the business at a steady pace, and to be making more women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident. And I’d never say never about another baby. It’s a juggling act–a career, family, a husband who’s busy. But I’d never say never!”
