Designer Victoria Beckham lounges in a belted coat on the October 2016 cover of Vogue UK. Photographed by Lachlan Bailey, the 42-year-old wears her signature polished and minimal style in the accompanying spread. In one shot, she poses in bed wearing a velvet slip dress with her back exposed. In another, she appears barefoot while sitting on a desk.
In lieu of an interview, Victoria wrote a letter to her younger self touching on subjects of style, love and confidence. Writing about her days as Posh Spice, she pens, “You are going to have so much fun with your clothes — PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair. It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself.”
