Read Victoria Beckham's Letter to Her Teenage Self, "“What I Wish I’d Known"
“Love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge.”
On British Vogue‘s October 2016 cover ex-Spice Girl signee Victoria Beckham looked back on her previous years and penned a letter “What I wish I’d known.”
She revealed the moment she saw now-husband David Beckham: “And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy.”
Here’s the advice that she would give to teenage Victoria:
“I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts college. You have never properly fitted in, although you are sharing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. You have bad acne. You think the principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliatingly bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front (This may or may not be true).”
Read the entire letter in October Vogue due out September 8.
