Victoria Beckham Smiles and Gets Tons of Celebrity Praise
Victoria Beckham Smiles and Gets Tons of Celebrity Praise

Victoria Beckham is taking the world by storm, again. Her new dress line sold out before it even hit the racks and, lucky her, she needs no model or celebrity face other than herself to sell her sexy, sultry, sophisticated brand. This time she's posing on the cover of Harper's Bazaar talking in her usual down to earth way and earning some awesome compliments from Heidi Klum to Marc Jacobs and more. Here are highlights:

  • On her persona: "I go into hair and makeup, and I turn into 'Victoria Beckham.' I'll try on all my dresses, and I'll pick out a handbag, and I'll put on the shades. I instantly turn into this person, and it sort of feels like a character. And there are so many pictures of it. . . But it's a true character because it's still me. . . If I go to the supermarket looking like sh*t, that affects my work. I am selling an image. Plus, I have fun with it."
  • On posing: "I have started smiling. I've mastered this smirk; it's a smile that isn't a smile. . . I used to get so nervous, and when I got on the red carpet, I'd freeze up. I've had so many things said about me over the years, like a public bullying. . . The older you get, the more comfortable you become with yourself, and you accept what you have physically. Also, the fact that my business is doing very well" — she smiles — "makes me feel a little more confident, too."
  • On having another baby: "I'm such a girl's girl. I walk into my closet and go, 'Crikey!' To one day hand that down to another girl ..." But no, she is not pregnant. "You get a little water retention; it's not news. Me, Katie [Holmes], Eva [Longoria], and Kate [Beckinsale] always joke about how one of us is allegedly pregnant, but no, we're just a little bloated today! None of us is pregnant."

To see what she has to say about her engagement to David and feelings about the paparazzi just

.

  • On her engagement: "It was a really happy time. We've had a lot of ups and a lot of downs. We've been married for nine years. I love him more now than when I first met him." She pauses. "Back then, there was a certain innocence. I look back and think if only I knew then what I know now. I've toughened up a lot."
  • On the paparazzi: "I don't complain about paparazzi because I've put myself in that position, and so has David. But I always say to the boys, someone is going to take your picture because you're handsome or you're smart or because you're so good at soccer. But every now and again, Romeo might pick up one of David's cameras and say, 'Victoria, Victoria, over here!' And his attitude is sort of angry."

She sure is classy! I like Victoria. I would have enjoyed if they did more than one episode of her Coming to America thing or whatever it was called. She seems like a very nice lady.

Well I guess I'm the minority here. I still don't like her, and I hate her haircut, it makes her look like a bird.

Everyone thinks she's this super famous wanting snob...but REAL Spice Girl fans like me know that she's super down to earth and is really funny and normal...with LOADS of money.

I love her :love: She seems like a really cool person to hang out with in real life. She was always my favorite Spice Girl. That being said, I don't really like the cover photo but the inside pictures are beautiful. If I were her, I would hate to have to dress up so much just to go grocery shopping but I guess that's what she likes to do.

Lisa is there a faint smiley?? Because i need one in reaction to your comment :rotfl: I will not allow it! who am i gonna be sarcastic with now? :cry: lol messing :hug: And everyone pretty much said it all above. People think she is up herself but the joke is on them because she actually GETS IT lol. When she is out of the house she is the media's "victoria beckham". When its her and her boys she's Victoria Beckham the mother and wife. Adore her :)

I have lost the will to scorn and mock. The hair is far better than that awful bob that looked like a helmet. More fashionista, less WAG.

There is something I really like about her. Can't quite put my finger on it. She seems so down to earth, she seems like she's a great mum and she's really funny in her TV interviews...

Agree, I like how she never leaves the house looking unkempt! I feel the same way. Although the smile thing is really an obession of hers isn't it?

she's funny..but I don't know I'm kind of bored with her style. Its pencil skirs and high heels all the time...I'm kind of over it. I wish she would branch out a bit.

Though I have to say its scary that the anger of the paparazzi is clearly affecting her children. Poor boys.

I think she (and David) is the most HONEST celebrity ever! I've never heard the Beckhams say they are hating the paps for taking their picture everyday, or their life is being abused by the paps and the media constantly..because they KNOW that is the part they should pay for doing what they do - for being celebrities! Unlike (for example) Jen Anniston who blames the Vogue and the tabloid for manipulating her words, or Brad Pitt in his most recent interview where he said the paps are disturbing his life and how he hates them so much...the Beckhams just accept it and move on, and if they can run, they run. That's why I love them. ;) And oh..she is gorgeous in the mag. Congrats to her on the success of her line and life!

i love her - i think that it's great that she's got this persona but it has to be hard to be her seeing as how she's always in the spotlight and all that.
