She says it’s all for fashion’s sake
It’s very rare that anyone may see Victoria Beckham smile, but she’s saying it’s not because she’s unhappy — it’s just that fashion took it away from her. The 38-year-old mom is spilling all in the September issue of Glamour, saying why it’s rare that anyone ever sees the infamous Victoria Beckham smile.
“I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion,” the former Spice Girls member said. “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.”
One thing that does make Victoria Beckham smile, she said, is the thought of her husband, David, and their four children: Brooklyn, Cruz, Romeo and Harper.
In the interview, Victoria said family is her top priority and in the next five years, “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!”
You may not see Victoria Beckham smile during her own fashion shows, but she said she did when her husband attended her fashion show for the first time during last season’s New York Fashion Week.
“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,” Victoria said in the interview. “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!”
Look to see Victoria Beckham smile in the issue of Glamour out later this month.
