She already was the kind dance class student, Spice Girls vocalist, and the author of her biography. Today a fashion designer, a mother to four children, a happy wife to David Beckham, and a total fashion icon. She used to be called „The Queen of Ice”, as she doesn’t like to express her emotions and smile on pictures. Today she’s not scared to record stupid videos with her sons (watch her performing a charity Ice Bucket Challenge. Even though she’s constantly being followed by paparazzi, she says about herself: „I really am way more normal than people think”. Victoria is a great example that one can change a lot of times in life, and stay themselves at the same time. Just take a look what she could give you a tip about, if you went for a coffee together someday 😉
1. INSTEAD OF BEING ASHAMED OF OLD PICS, DRAW CONCLUSIONS FOR THE FUTURE
When in 1996 Victoria Beckham sang „Wannabe”,she was called the “Posh Spice”. She loved latex dressed, micro strapless tops, and tight jumpsuits. The girls all around the world were copying her fave make up: chocolate lips, and a solid portion of bronzer on the cheeks. When the band broke up, Victoria got fake breasts, and her style became a synonym of luxurious kitsch. Unfortunately, she didn’t look good in most of the cases. She was known to have over 100 Hermes Birkin bags in her closet. She managed to get it all together, and… worked on her style. As she says herself, it was a nightmare 😀 It’ll always be her sweet secret whether she found a great stylist, or just read my„5 rthings you have to do in the New Year“ article 😉 The facts are – now she looks better than any other time – she wears elegant sets, which she makes look interesting with a bit of color, or an unusual accessory (a fancy scarf). Despite her previous likings, she decided to wear ballerinas and oversize cuts. Her look is fresh and relaxed, and Victoria herself looks younger, and happier than in the 90s. She also decided to remove her breasts implants, and admits in interviews that she’s finally dealt with her problematic complexion. You should also try to fall in love with your natural hair color, not hide your original complexion color with solarium sessions, and appreciate the “shortcomings” of your beauty 😉 They’re what makes you special! Maybe your little breasts suit your frail figure, or a slim friend is dreaming of your curvy hips? Be yourself! Back in the 90s Victoria would give everything to look sexy, and what she got was exactly the opposite. Sometimes it’s better just to let it go – if you feel good in your own skin, you can be sensual even in a warm sweater!
2. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE YOUR PROFESSION
Victoria could be using her show business success as up to now. She gets 2 million dollars a year for everything connected with “Spice Girls”. If she wanted, she could keep recording her solo albums and go to parties with her attractive husband. But she felt – as she says herself – that she “stopped belonging to the world of music”, and… started her career in fashion. And she’s totally serious about it! In 2006 she was her friend’s Katie Holmes’s stylist for the British edition of Harper`s Bazaar,, she also designed sunglasses and jeans under the DVB brand. In 2008 she entered the market with her own „Victoria Beckham”, brand, which turned out to be a huge success – she won the title of the “British designer of the Year” in 2011. What’s more, she doesn’t own it to her famous surname at all – her clothes really are good! Fashion critics and clients praise the ex-singer for her color sense and perfectly cut dresses, which suit their figure perfectly. The branch, at first a bit skeptical, treats her seriously today. Victoria has worked hard for this triumph, but she finally succeeded, proving that changing your field is possible at every age 😉 That’s what I already wrote you on New Year’s Eve – if you’re not satisfied with your work, don’t be scared to risk and find your place in the World! Everyone deserves to do what they love!
3. A HAPPY RELATIONSHIP IS POSSIBLE… EVEN IN SHOW BUSINESS 😉
Throughout all these years that she’s been changing her jobs, and bra size, one thing remained the same – her beloved man at her side 😉 David is still in love with his wife, regardless if she’s wearing tight dresses, or a woolen skirt up to her ankles. Mr Beckham approves of Victoria’s life choices and supports her in tough moments: for example when she decided to take part in Spice Girls’ tour after so much time had passed, or when she gave up everything for her own fashion brand. He always cheers for her in the first row of the fashion shows, and assures her of her love everyday. He claims that ever since she gave birth to four children, she’s even more sexy to him 😉 Of course life’s not easy for the show business couple. There have been many gossips about the handsome footballers affair many times. Even if Victoria and David have had their crises, they manager to go through them and save their marriage. Recently the footballer posted a picture of his wife and daughter watching a romantic sunset on Instagram . It just takes one look to see that they’re happy. The key to success in a relationship is simple: Victoria has always wanted to work for herself, and prove o her husband that being a WAG isn’t her lifelong ambition. She’s ambitious and happy. What kind of a man wouldn’t wanna be with such a woman? 😉
4. YOU CAN ALWAYS HAVE BOTH – A FAMILY & WORK
Victoria is a mother to four children: 16 years old Brooklyn, 13 years old Romeo, 11 years old Cruze, and 4 years old Harper. She’s also the best example that one doesn’t have to choose between work and family 😉 The Beckhams are a happy lot, who love to spend time together. Take a look at Victoria’s Instagram – it’s her children who take up the most of space besides the clothes. It’s not a mystification, they truly love eachother! Even Brooklyn, who’s in his adolescence, isn’t ashamed of selfies with his mom 😉 Victoria hasn’t resigned from her family to pursue her career, and calls herself a multitasking woman, She’s been succeeding in the field for years, balancing between her home and fashion empire. She’s helped by David, of course. They share their duties: when one of them isn’t at home, the other is always present. They try to give as much time as possible to their children. They let them choose on their own: agreed for Romeo to take part in Burberry advertising campaign, and when their oldest son admitted that he’d rather not be a footballer, they didn’t criticize his decision. The next time you think that a child will ruin your career, think of Victoria and the way she deals with things. Of course you can always say that having so much money on your account, everything becomes easier. Yet I’m positive that they’d be equally happy, if they weren’t famous 😉
5. WOMEN SOLIDARITY PROVIDES HAPPINESS – GO FOR FEMALE FRIENDSHIP
Even when she was a part of „Spice Girls”, she sang „friendship never ends”, and she still believes that! 😉 She’s in constant touch with the friends from her previous band, spends time with them, for example during Christmas, or on David’s birthday. She says that’s she’ll always b the same „old Victoria” for them 😉 She emphasizes: : “I like it when women have female friends; I despise of the ones who keep playing against eachother.” The ex-spice girl very often travels between the US, and England, but she takes care of her friendships on both sides of the ocean. In LA she goes gossiping with her neighbor, Eva Longoria: they have lunch together, borrow each other’s clothes, and upload pictures. Victoria’s supporting Eva Longoria’s charity foundation, and the actress is even the godmother to little Harper! When the designer is in England, she drops by her friends with an unexpected visit, for example on her old friend’s, Beverly Knight’s musical, „Bodyguard”. She’s also in good relations with Kate, the Dutchess of Cambridge, whom she met during the Olympics in London. When the royal couple had their second baby, she was the first one to call and congratulate 😉 Katie Holmes, Cheryl Cole, and Jennifer Lopez are also Victoria’s close friends. You also should take care of our old friendships! Moving out, or a professional career isn’t an excuse at all 😉 Find some time for a coffee with a friend that you haven’t seen for a long time, Skype your friend who left abroad. And meet your best friends as often as possible. There’s nothing more powerful than GIRL POWER! 😉
