TRENDS – VICTORIA BECKHAM REVEALS “I DON’T HAVE TO WORK, I NEED TO WORK”
Victoria Beckham looks amazing and opens up for Elle UK: What does 48-hours in the life of Victoria Beckham look like? Editor at large Annabel Brog flew out to join the tireless fashion designer in Las Vegas, where she was photographed by Carter Smith for the exclusive, new-look ELLE cover.
The shoes! The dresses! That Burberry jacket! From the daredevil shot that required a health and safety waiver to the loo in the private jet, see every moment of Annabel’s experience with one of the fashion world’s biggest icons – and an exotic grey pigeon.’Victoria says:”It was never my intention to prove anybody wrong, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I don’t have to work, I need to work.”
“All these people (her fellow fashion designers), they’ve not just been given anything. They’ve worked hard. And I’ve never been given anything either. But I have a good work ethic; David has an incredible work ethic. I want my kids to have a good work ethic. I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it.”
“You’ve got to trust people, she said. “And because I am a control freak, sometimes that’s difficult for me, because I want to micro-manage absolutely everything. I can’t hand over. But I’m trying to do that more. It’s hard because I have such a specific vision.”
