Victoria Beckham: Clothes have Girl Power

Victoria Beckham believes her fashion line promotes the same ethos as the Spice Girls.

The 41-year-old fashion designer admits she had to "find herself" when embarking on her new career and her primary desire when creating new garments is to make women feel "the best version of themselves", just as her former group wanted to do.

She said: "I did have to find myself and my confidence. And I want to make other women feel like the best version of themselves. That's the same message as the Spice Girls. It's still Girl Power."

Victoria - who has children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10, and Harper, four, with husband David - admits she has "never [been] best at anything" but believes anything can be achieved with hard work.

Speaking to America's Glamour magazine - which named her one of their Women of the Year - she said: "Work hard, stay focused, be appreciative, and really, really go for it. I was told I couldn't do lots of things, so if I can do it, you can.

"Nothing ever came naturally to me.

"I was never the cleverest, never best at anything. But we always tell our children that if you work hard and believe in yourself, you can do what you want."

Away from her design career and raising her family, Victoria is also an international goodwill ambassador for UNAIDS and admits being a mother created a "real pull" for her to help others.

She said: "Motherhood puts us all on one level. I just felt this real pull to help."
