Victoria Beckham’s Proud Of Her Choices & We Couldn’t Be Happier
Victoria Beckham’s letter to her former self is worth a read.
Victoria Beckham has alwaysl reigned supreme on the fashion and lifestyle front. This time, her words of wisdom have hit home.
In a letter written to her former self, titled “What I Wish I’d Known,” she metes out advice stemming from her own experiences, asking her 18-year old self to take heart and not get bogged down by insecurities that plague every teenager at some point in time.
Victoria, who adorns the cover of Vogue for its October issue, talks about falling in love with her husband, David Beckham, her changing taste in fashion and the advice that she would give to her teenage self.
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.
The letter also talks about the fact that David had asked for her number, which was given to him on a London-to-Manchester plane ticket that he has still retained.
When it comes to teenage insecurities, she addresses her former self quite sympathetically.
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 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.
Furthermore, she talks about having evolved over the years with respect to fashion and appreciating all her choices, then and now, for the variety, wisdom and interest they have added to her life.
It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at award ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself.
