Victoria Beckham wants her fans to know fame is not as “glamorous as people think”.
The designer first shot to superstardom as one-fifth of the Spice Girls back in the 1990s while still in her early 20s, alongside Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Melanie Brown.
Victoria further established her place as an A-lister when she married former soccer star David Beckham, and she went on to launch a less-than-successful solo career, started a family, and finally turned her hand to fashion.
Launching her eponymous debut collection of just 10 dresses in New York back in 2014, she’s gone from strength to strength, but she has now insisted that dealing with the highs and lows of fame has been a constant struggle.
“I learnt an enormous amount being very young and very, very famous,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “You realise it’s much more difficult to maintain success than it is to actually achieve it – and it’s not as glamorous as people would think.”
Victoria and her husband David have worked hard at their solo and joint business ventures, and are reportedly worth more than $900 million (£689 million). Yet, the 45-year-old is quick to state that their success hasn’t come easy.
“Whether people like me or David – and I got over worrying about that a long time ago, else I’d be crazy by now – nobody can ever dispute the fact that we work hard at it,” Victoria explained. “If you dream big, you can achieve great things.”
