Victoria Beckham in Harper's Bazaar
Victoria Beckham will be gracing the January 2009 cover of Harper's Bazaar, shot by Peter Lindbergh. The accompanying interview covers all things Posh, including her heels, fashion lines, and her infamous non-smiling smirk. It's not on newsstands until December 16th - CLICK HERE to check it out on HarpersBazaar.com - but we have a sneak peek of photos from the shoot plus some of her quotes:
Victoria on her high heels:
Oh, c’mon, they’re not that hard to walk in…They’re not uncomfortable! You have to go to a sex shop to get this spray to polish them.
She continues on whether she personally went to the sex shop to buy the polish:
On her success in fashion:
I really had to prove myself, though…But now I feel like I am competing in an arena where I belong.
On attending press appointments for her new dress line:
I was so nervous…because this has been a lifetime in the making.
It's funny; I go to the gym now…I run four miles a day…I go into hair and makeup, and I turn into 'Victoria Beckham.' I'll try on all my dresses, and I'll pick out a handbag, and I'll put on the shades. I instantly turn into this person, and it sort of feels like a character. And there are so many pictures of it…But it's a true character because it's still me.
On occasionally letting herself go:
I run around the house in a tracksuit sometimes!...If I go to the supermarket looking like shit, that affects my work. I am selling an image. Plus, I have fun with it.
On her image:
I have started smiling…I've mastered this smirk; it's a smile that isn't a smile.
On performance anxiety:
I used to get so nervous, and when I got on the red carpet, I'd freeze up. I've had so many things said about me over the years, like a public bullying...The older you get, the more comfortable you become with yourself, and you accept what you have physically. Also, the fact that my business is doing very well…makes me feel a little more confident, too.
On the paparazzi:
I don't complain about paparazzi because I've put myself in that position, and so has David. But I always say to the boys, someone is going to take your picture because you're handsome or you're smart or because you're so good at soccer. But every now and again, Romeo might pick up one of David's cameras and say, 'Victoria, Victoria, over here!' And his attitude is sort of angry.
More on the paparazzi:
…I tell you, the paparazzi would not be sitting outside if they realized I was the most boring person in Hollywood.
