Victoria Beckham looks young, playful, and sexy on the cover of the January issue of Elle, although we haven't had a chance to see how the insane photo shoot turned out yet. Last night we were treated to our first reunited Spice Girls performance at the VS Fashion Show, but we haven't forgotten about Posh's multi-faceted life and career both before and after she became a pop star. In the article she talks about life, love, and the ambition that made her famous. Here are highlights:
- On doing what she loves: "I could bore you to death with zips and rivets and dyes and all sorts of things. I go to denim factories and come out completely blue! I work seven days a week. And I so love what I'm doing. I could go shopping all day, which is what a lot of people think that I do. That's their perception—that I'm a miserable bitch and go shopping all day and boss David about."
- On her first dates with David:
"We drove around in his car and would sit in car parks and talk for hours and hours. We didn't need to go out for meals. We didn't need to go out for drinks. We just wanted to be together and get to know each other."
- On her ambition:
