Beckham doesn't just grace Glamour's September 2012 Full-On
Fashion Issue but she is the magazine's first-ever guest editor. In
the accompanying interview, the 38-year-old star opens up and talks
about her work, her marriage, why she'd maybe, possibly, have
another baby, and why she is never seen smiling.
"Do you know, I don’t know?! I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] Fashion stole my smile! I’ve created this person. And I’m not saying that’s not me, but I wouldn’t say that’s the whole me…. It’s an armor that goes up," she says.
On reading '50 Shades of Grey,' Victoria confesses that, "I’m halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject. I don’t really want to talk to my mother about S&M."
Last season, her husband, David Beckham, made his Fashion Week
debut and came to see Victoria's show in New York.
"It was the first time! He’s always been working or training. But I was nervous about this show. I was feeling a lot of pressure. He phoned me the night before, and I just said, 'I want you to come be with me. I want a cuddle. I really do.' And it was great to have him there. I think he was surprised; I don’t usually bother him with much detail. And then you get there, and the models, the hair, the makeup…I think he was blown away," she told Glamour.
When it comes to future plans and where she sees herself and her family in five years, Victoria reveals that, "I’d like everybody to be healthy and happy. I’d like to be growing the business at a steady pace, and to be making more women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident. And I’d never say never about another baby. It’s a juggling act — a career, family, a husband who’s busy. But I’d never say never!"
On guest editing the magazine's September issue, Victoria admits that it was an interesting experience. "It’s been exciting for me to see my ideas come to life, from type colors to photo selection to casting. I even made my own list of Glamour fashion Don’ts to keep out of the issue: boat shoes (unless of course you’re designer Alber Elbaz or on a boat!), Bermuda shorts, nose rings, Crocs, and American tan tights (that’s nude pantyhose to you)," she says.
You can read Victoria's complete interview in Glamour's September 2012 issue, on newsstands August 7.
