Victoria Beckham seems to be doing a little of everything these days, including guest editing Glamour’s first-ever Full-On Fashion spread for September’s issue. For the fashion-focused Glamour issue, Victoria worked closely with Glamour’s Cindi Leive to create it and you can see her flair throughout.
Glamour’s September issue will be available on newsstands nationwide and digitally (iPad, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color) on August 7. The full photo shoot slide show is available now on Glamour.com.
Courtesy of Glamour, LA’s the Place brings you a first look at the interview where Mrs. Beckham shares about her work, her marriage, how she reinvented her life and baby talk:
What Victoria thinks of guest editing the September issue:
It’s been exciting for me to see my ideas come to life, from type colors to photo selection to casting. I even made my own list of Glamour fashion Don’ts to keep out of the issue: boat shoes (unless of course you’re designer Alber Elbaz or on a boat!), Bermuda shorts, nose rings, Crocs, and American tan tights (that’s nude pantyhose to you).
She explains why she’s never seen smiling:
“Do you know, I don’t know?! I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] 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.”
Her take on the book 50 Shades of Grey:
“I’m halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject. I don’t really want to talk to my mother about S&M.”
On David, her hubby, coming to see her NYC fashion show:
“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. 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!”
On where she sees herself and her family in 5 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!”
