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

Ellen von Unwerth for GLAMOUR

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

Stunning cover, and photos, i will completely ignore the haterz because you are pathetic!!

To me Beckham is a true contemporary Style icon we have today, always doing it her own way, no matter what the media or hateful morons say about her, her looks, style, life choices, she does it her own way. Never afraid to take a fashion risk, or go through different looks. Clearly a strong woman with a thick skin, and a great businness acumen.

Will buy this magazine for the fact she is on the cover!

I have a heck of a lot of respect for Victoria. I love her smile and she definitely has lots of personality! I think they should have replaced Paula with Victoria because she knows a thing or two about the music business. I’m not saying Ellen isn’t great, but Victoria would have been a better fit.

I definitely love it when Victoria rubs the fact that Simon failed to sign them on to his label in his face every so often. I love seeing Simon look uncomfortable!

She says it all the time, she DOES smile but they never print those photos of her! It’s a better story to say she’s a sour, moody cow. But look at her on Ugly Betty as an example, she doesn’t take herself too seriously and that’s great!

I’ve always been a (the) greatest fan of Victoria Beckham, I think that she is just misunderstood. People don’t know how to interact with her because she is always so stylist and smart, I strive to be like her. I love her loads and her style.
