Victoria Beckham: wife, mother, designer, retailer, singer (ex) - and now, UN Goodwill ambassador.

In perhaps her most important role to date, Victoria missed her own store opening (she sent the husband in her place) to make a speech in New York accepting a position as Ambassador for the UN AIDS campaign.

A mercy visit to South Africa cemented VB's passion for the cause and she has promised to do 'whatever I can' to raise awareness.
