Victoria Beckham and her recipe for success in stunning cover shoot

She has enjoyed a celebrated career as a pop-star, but Victoria Beckham admits she never quite felt at ease alongside her bandmates.

She told Elle magazine: ‘When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me.

‘And when I go out with David and people take pictures I think, “They’re here to take David’s picture.”’ 

However, she credits her growing confidence to a change of career.
Now a successful and celebrated fashion designer, the multimillionaire businesswoman reveals the secret of her success is quite simply - sheer hard work.

Grafter: Victoria Beckham credits her success as a designer to her work ethic which she said husband David shares in a new interview with Elle Magazine

Mrs Beckham said she hopes to pass her work ethic on to her children Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and Harper, one.

She added: ‘I don’t have to work, I need to work. But I have a good work ethic. David has an incredible work ethic.
‘I want my kids to have a good work ethic. I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it.’

The former Spice Girl has admitted she is a ‘control freak’ who finds it hard to trust others...and fears her co-stars and even her husband are more popular than she is.

Victoria, 38, admitted she finds it hard to delegate responsibility while running her Victoria Beckham Collection fashion line.

She said: ‘You’ve got to trust people. And because I am a control freak, sometimes that’s difficult for me, because I want to micro-manage absolutely everything.
‘I can’t hand over. But I’m trying to do that more. It’s hard because I have such a specific vision.’

Mrs Beckham and her husband David, 37, recently moved their four children back to the UK after he left US football team LA Galaxy last year.

At the premiere of Spice Girls musical Viva Forever! last month, she reportedly sat apart from her former band mates and left the after-party early.

The band’s reunion at the Olympics closing ceremony last year was also dogged by rumours she was aloof and reluctant to take part.

But it seems any distance between her and her colleagues was caused by her innate humility rather a sense of superiority.

Yesterday, her spokesman explained her lateness by saying she needed to feed her one-year-old daughter Harper before setting out to the premiere.

Last year, Mrs Beckham admitted juggling her fashion business with motherhood had left her exhausted.
She said: ‘I’m not going to lie about it, I’m tired. I’m really tired but I’m also very happy with my life. ‘I’m basically just like any woman who’s working and has lots of children - it’s tough. ‘I’m not getting much sleep at all. Harper’s not sleeping that great, and I’ve been taking Skype business calls throughout the night too because of the collections.’
