Victoria Beckham's reach will always exceed her grasp, and we are so excited to see how far she'll eventually go.
If you think she's even close to reaching her peak, you are so, so WRONG!
"I want to get bigger and bigger," she recently told T magazine. "I absolutely want an empire."
The designer, who is killing it with her magazine appearances lately, poses in her own Isabel Marant slacks and Balenciaga leather jacket for the New York Times' style magazine.
The simple photos, taken by Jeugen Teller, feature Posh less glammed up than usual, which she actually prefers.
"Normally in a fashion shoot you’d be plastered in makeup, in amazing clothes. I find it embarrassing when you don’t look like yourself, when you’ve had tons of retouching. I don’t want to be made to look like I’m 25. I’m 39. I don’t have any issues with my age."
What a refreshing attitude! Though we must admit she looks MARVELOUS!
Poshy once again explains her poker face in candids, saying:
"I dunno. I smile in family pictures. When you’re in a position to be paparazzi-ed just walking down the street, you’d look a little daft if you were smiling all the time."
And if you've ever wondered if David Beckham asks for his wife's fashion advice, here's your answer:
"He might sometimes ask advice if he’s going to be late — 'What should I wear?' — but generally speaking, he has a really good sense of what works on him. I think he looks great whatever he does. He literally always looks really, really good."
Yes, he does. Here is proof.
The devoted wifey also elaborates on the brand she and the hubs have built together over the years. She said:
"You know, we don’t look at it as a big brand. It is, but it happened very, very naturally. It seems that now everybody wants to make a brand; everybody wants to build a brand. Ours happened very organically."
Plus, now with Romeo Beckham (and possibly Harper in the future) following in his parents' fashionable footsteps, the brand seems stronger than ever!
Finally, Victoria talks about her burgeoning empire, its origins, and its future, saying:
"I just wanted to create beautiful clothes, good quality clothes I wanted to wear myself. And then I wanted to create handbags, because I couldn’t find the right handbag that I wanted to carry. Then I couldn’t find the right sunglasses, so I decided to make my own sunglasses. I want to reach as many women throughout the world as I can. There are more categories that I want to enter into. I have five categories at the moment. But at some point I would love to do shoes, I would love to do fragrance, I would love to do makeup, I would like to do underwear. There are so many things I want to do."
One thing's for sure, she'll be excellent in every regard!
