Victoria Beckham appears on the cover of the latest issue of The Edit, and in the wide ranging interview discusses everything from her most stinging fashion mistake to why she thinks women need to be supportive of each other.
“I have no time for women who don’t support other women,” she explains. “It’s the ultimate compliment when a woman tells you that you look good.”
She also discusses why she thinks it’s important to share the beauty knowledge she’s picked up over the years. “There are two types of women out there: there’s the kind of woman who finds something nice and likes to keep it to herself, and then there’s the other type, which is me, who wants to share,” she admits. “I have worked with the best makeup artists, hairdressers and stylists, and I’ve learned so much. I haven’t always got it right, but when I’ve got it wrong, I’ve actually learned an enormous amount from that, too. And I want to share everything I know.”
And while the erstwhile Posh Spice is now one of the leading lights in the fashion world, she insists on living up to her fashion mistakes. “I have made so many fashion mistakes but I actually don’t look at them as mistakes. I celebrate those things, I laugh occasionally but I’m not ashamed of any of that,” she says.
She recalls her most memorable fashion faux pas: “At some point I thought it was OK to wear a PVC cat suit,” she laughs. “When I was pregnant with Romeo, I walked around Disneyland in Christian Louboutin heels, literally at nine months’ pregnant!”
