Victoria Beckham on her fashion faux pas and fishy beauty secret


Victoria Beckham may be known as one of the most stylish celebrities around now, but it wasn't always the case for the former Spice Girl.

Pop-star-turned-designer Victoria has been talking about some of her less fashionable moments in an interview with The Edit, where she also reveals a surprising beauty secret.

Asked about her fashion faux pas, she replied: "At some point I thought it was okay to wear a PVC cat suit. When I was pregnant with Romeo, I walked around Disneyland in Christian Louboutin heels, literally at nine months pregnant."

David Beckham's missus used to have problem skin, but is now fresh-faced and glowing - and the change she credits it to smells a little fishy...

She revealed: "I see a dermatologist in LA, called Dr Harold Lancer, who is incredible. I've known him for years - he sorted my skin out. I used to have really problematic skin and he said to me, 'You have to eat salmon every single day.'

"I said, 'Really, every day?' And he said, 'Yes; breakfast, lunch or dinner, you have to eat it every single day'."

Mum of four Victoria has designed a new make-up range with Estee Lauder and said that the idea behind it was to get all of us camera-ready, all of the time.

She explained: "I'd be getting on a plane from London, then 11 hours later, getting up, walking out of the airport terminal and being bombarded by so many paparazzi, so I wanted something that I could put on to make me look fresh.

"That was my starting point, actually; when I began working with Estee Lauder, I said I really want to create a product that does exactly that. And the thing is, everybody is in that position now, because everyone has a camera phone.

"Even if you're not being chased by paparazzi, there will be someone doing selfies, so everybody has to be camera-ready all the time. Whoever you are, everybody has to be ready now."

Positioning herself as a women's woman, she went on: "There are two types of women out there: There's the kind of woman who finds something nice and likes to keep it to herself, and then there's the other type, which is me, who wants to share.

"I have worked with the best make-up artists, hairdressers and stylists, and I've learned so much. I haven't always got it right, but when I've got it wrong, I've actually learned an enormous amount from that, too. And I want to share everything I know."
