Victoria Beckham is the latest cover star of Harper’s BAZAAR UK. Landing on the magazine’s February 2020 issue, the former Spice Girl turned fashion mogul opens up about style, success and self-improvement.

On if she thinks she’s beautiful now that she’s growing older?
“Do I think of myself as beautiful? No, absolutely not. But I make the best of what I have. I see my imperfections and flaws and I smile: it’s who I am and I’m not going to try to change that. It’s taken me a long, long time to recognise that by 45 years old, actually, I’m all right.”
On what she’s learned from being a young star:
“I learnt an enormous amount being very young and very, very famous,” she explained. “You realize it’s much more difficult to maintain success than it is to actually achieve it–and it’s not as glamorous as people would think.”
On how she deals with her negative thoughts?
‘I’m very lucky to have a job that doesn’t feel like a job; it’s my passion,’ she said. ‘So I love going to work. But with the kids, both myself and David are really hands-on.
Yes, I’m up early working out but one of us will do the school run and we always try to be home by dinnertime. We’re very strict about that when we’re in London – at 6pm we are all together, eating dinner, talking about our days.”
On what the future holds for her:
“I was really focusing on the brand, looking at its DNA and at my community, being true to who I am and what my strengths are,” she explained. “I see those as beautiful clothes, great silhouettes, strange colors that you wouldn’t typically put together that are almost so wrong they’re right. It’s about presenting clothes that are elevated enough for the catwalk but that people are actually going to wear; it’s never about showing fashion for the sake of showing fashion.”
