If you want the serious, unvarnished truth about Victoria Beckham’s life in fashion, buy the new issue of ELLE Collections. In the meantime, read some fun stuff we asked her…
1) First thing you do when you clock in?
'I dump my bags down, I’ve always got tonnes of bags with me, of just stuff! I’m always happy. I’m a very good morning person. I catch up with my assistant, say hi to everybody, and we run through the order of the day. Then I have a cup of tea. Very English!'
'Tea, I don’t drink coffee – controversial! I only drink PG Tips, black. Or peppermint or green tea. No sugar.'
3) What’s in your top drawer?
'I don’t have a desk drawer! Just a lot of fashion magazines [arranged immaculately]. If I need that kind of thing, I rummage through my children’s pencil cases.'
4) How would your intern describe you?
'I’d like to think they’d say we’re all polite and respectful. And that we work hard, because we do.'
5) Which pieces from your wardrobe will Harper inherit?
'I’ve collected Birkin and Kelly bags over the years, so I’d imagine she’d want those. And my jewellery. And art… mind you, the boys might want the art. [David and I] both really like Julian Schnabel.'
6) Stress-busting techniques?
'I work out a lot. Everyday, at 6am, I do a couple of miles on the treadmill, followed by a work out with my trainer Tracy Anderson. Then I get the kids up and ready for school.'
7) What’s for lunch?
'Japanese, from Itsu. A variety box for everyone in the studio – like lucky dip!'
8) Workplace uniform?
'We don’t have one. I think it’s important everybody feels free to wear what they want. But heaven forbid anyone should turn up in Uggs!'
9) We mean you, what’s your workplace uniform?
'Ahh! Well yesterday I wore men’s trousers, a pair of Vans… It’s usually flats. I need to be comfortable, have you seen those stairs?'
10) The last thing you do when you clock out?
'Say thank you to everybody.'
