Victoria Beckham was caught smiling (love it) earlier today at the Harvey Nichols store in Manchester as she promoted her latest fragrance, Signature. Unlike last night's dramatic dark ensemble, Posh lightened things up in a white dress and a shiny updo to greet her fans. She and her family have history in the city, since David was on Manchester United for over 10 years, and Victoria talked to the local paper about their life these days. Here's more>:
- On living in LA: "We really like it there, we've been made to feel really welcome. The kids are very happy at school, the weather is great and we have nice friends there. Tom Cruise is a really nice guy, all our kids hang out together and we live quite close."
- On Americans: "They are very positive, the Americans. We get involved with everything our kids do and I think that shows. We're very happy with the way they have taken to us. Things just get better and better for me."
- On the importance of family: "I don't like to spend too long away from David and the kids. As soon as I get back to LA the kids have got to get their school uniforms — that's my next clothing project. I'm back to doing school runs. It's been nice to have a bit of a break but the school uniforms have to come first."

- On her many projects: "There are things coming out now that I have been working on for years and years, I have really put in the groundwork. This is why I am different to a lot of so-called celebrities, if you like, when it comes to fragrances. They don't have the involvement I have — I've been working on them for the last five years. I designed the bottles and the packaging. I'm very hands on — this is a business I own not just something I am putting my name on and I'm a bit of a control freak."
- On her love for Manchester: "I'm very excited about coming back to Manchester, of course it's where I met David. And it's where we had our first house. In fact, when we were last in Manchester for the Spice Girls gig David and I drove back to that house in Hazelhurst Road (Worsley) to have a look. There are such fond memories for us — of the Trafford Centre and all that kind of thing. I know David misses Manchester as well and still keeps in touch with everyone. We always used to go off to the Trafford Centre with Brooklyn in his buggy."
- On Eva Longoria catching her Spice Girls show in Manchester: "Eva was sweet, she wanted to see the show in America but missed it. She was excited to come to Manchester — she loved it and we went out for some drinks afterwards."
It's always a treat to get the inside scoop on the crazy lives of the Beckhams. Victoria and David are both busy jetsetters, but at the end of the day, they're all about family and friends.
