Victoria Beckham Talks Fashion, Family and the Royal Wedding With US Vogue

Victoria Beckham Talks Fashion, Family and the Royal Wedding With US Vogue

Earlier this week, Grazia Daily was cooing over David Beckham talking family life and how his 9-year-old son Romeo is 'the fashion one' (cuteness) - and now, Lady Beckham has got in on the act with an interview for US Vogue. Talking to Hamish Bowles, the pop-star-turned-mega-designer dishes on her adorable kids, how her designs have developed and, of course, online shopping. There's also a totes adorbz story about Justin Bieber sending her sons guitars, although he mistook one of them for a Brangelina offspring. Whoops. Scroll down for the interview highlights...

On attending the Royal Wedding:

'First, obviously, we were very, very excited. What do you wear to the biggest wedding ever—when you’re enormously pregnant?'

On shopping:

'I very, very rarely get the opportunity to go shopping and actually feel the clothes and try things on. I love shopping, but I do it mostly through Net-a-Porter.'

On her LA wardrobe:

'Always take an Alaïa cardigan with you.'

On her sons' style:

'I’d love to say they get [their singing talent] from me, but they don’t. But they have good fashion sense; I like to think that they got that from me.'

On winning the British Fashion Council’s Designer Brand award:

'When they read my name, I literally felt like my heart was going to jump out of my body. I’m so appreciative of my past. I respect all the girls and really enjoyed what I did then, but this is what I love to do. I didn’t plan on getting up in front of the whole British fashion industry and not keeping my cool, but I was overwhelmed; I cried three times.'

On how she got back in shape after Harper's birth:

'I worked out a lot. I ran a lot. I did it six days a week. I become quite obsessive when I get into something.'

On staying in LA and not moving to Paris:

'I’m definitely a glass-is-always-half-full, not half-empty, kind of person, which is why I love living in America. It would have been fun for David to play in Europe again—he’s not getting any younger. And Paris would have been very exciting for me, career-wise, but we came to the conclusion that it’s all about the children—they’re the most important people here. Also, David came here to raise the profile of soccer in America; I’m really proud of him, but his job is not done yet.'

On her son being mistaken for a Jolie-Pitt:

For Romeo’s birthday, as a surprise, the family took him to hang out in Justin Bieber’s studio while he was recording his Christmas album. Bieber sweetly sent the boys signed guitars afterward, but Romeo’s was signed to 'Pax' (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s son). 'So we got one of the Jolie-Pitts’ guitars'.

On the developments of her design:

'At first, I wanted clothes that people would associate with me. I was probably a little bit more self-conscious then—I was afraid to wear things that weren’t super-supertight. In those days, I wore a lot of corsetry. That was a sign of my own insecurities. By season three or four, I started doing a lot more research about things that I didn’t like. And I started challenging myself. Now that I feel more confident, creatively I feel more satisfied. It doesn’t have to be tight. I love working with volume and draping away from the body.'

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

    Over the past decade, Chrysler's rear-wheel-drive sedans have managed to survive a bankruptcy and three different corporate overlords. Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
