Victoria Beckham On Being Posh: "I'm Not a Supermodel"

Victoria Beckham is rarely snapped without her super-high heels and oversize shades, but, the star reveals, her “Posh” persona is hardly an accurate portrayal of her. “I love fashion, and that’s how I express myself,” Victoria tells Glamour in their March issue. “When I dress in a certain way and do my hair and makeup in a certain way, it’s not to get attention. I’m not a supermodel. I make the best of what I’ve got. I work out to look the best that I can, but I’m no Gisele.” In fact, Victoria even cops to suffering for her love of fashion, just like the rest of us. Of her signature stilettos, the 35 year-old admits, “Absolutely they hurt. I’m not going to lie. But no pain, no gain, as they say. I don’t mind. I will suffer. I don’t wear heels every day, but when I’m out, that’s how I feel confident.” Following the success of her star-loved line of dresses, Victoria is getting back into the denim game with the spring relaunch of her jeans collection. “I’m such a perfectionist,” she explains of taking a few seasons off from denim design. “I’ve worked really hard [with my team] to get it right.” And this time around, it was all about the silhouette: “Long, slim legs. Really good design. I’m not saying that you’ve got to be a stick to wear them. You can be all different shapes and sizes.” Pick up Glamour‘s March issue, on newsstands February 9, or visit to hear more from Victoria.–Andrea DeSimone and David Yi

I have a cat named Posh and like her namesake, she is very adorable.

I love her hair dark and I love her style. She is a refreshing addition to American Idol…

I remember her in the spice girls and she always had a good eye for fashion she does look beautiful and seems like a very nice person i wish her the best

I love Victoria. She seems like the kind of person you would want to be your best friend. She seems very down to earth and not at all snotty, despite her high-fashion, serious appearance. Love her! And I agree she should have replaced Paula instead of Ellen.

I totally agree with you Jennifer, It is about time that she smiled. She can have all the fashion the money the hunk and kids….but that mug she was wearing for so many years was doing her know good.
She needs to smile, and I hope to see more of that from her.


She does seem like a genuinely nice person- she follows her husband around for his job and manages to take care of 3 kids at the same time. Somebody with four guys in the family should be able to wear heels and express herself through fashion as much as possible because that’s about as girly as her life can get!

Wow people. How naive. She is a hollywood, self indulgent, look at me type. There is nothing normal about any of these people, ever.

M on

I agree with you, Mary. Nothing likable about her at all. So many women are a bunch of celebrity-worshipping morons that look up to superficial women; they need to get a life.

The only thing I can defend about Ms. Beckham is that she doesn’t have to “smile” just because everyone thinks she should. I don’t go around smiling, but still have plenty of people around me anyway.
