Catwalk to Photo Shoot - Victoria Beckham on the Cover of UK Vogue April 2007

By Fashion

Victoria Beckham is STUNNING on and inside the covers of Vogue UK April 2008, which is much better than her Elle US editorial.

Posh Spice is living up to her nickname with a glamorous yet refined photoshoot for Vogue, which is surprisingly her first cover.

Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue, said: "The pictures demonstrate the Eliza Dolittle quality of Victoria, veering from mannered hauteur to the trashy sexiness of her exposed back laced with tattoos."

Alexandra admits that prior to her interview with Victoria, she had no intention of featuring her in the magazine, but she was charmed by Victoria and appreciated her good manners.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On why she became a Spice Girl again: "I wanted the boys (Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz) to see me as a pop star, not just someone telling them to do their homework, and David can be reminded of the person he fell in love with."

On her love for Christian Louboutin shoes: "If they don't have my size I just stick toilet paper in - if that is what it takes to get a nice shoe."

On working out: "I have joined a gym, but I can't bring myself to start. What do you wear on the running machine? I can't bring myself to wear flat shoes".

On naming her collection: "We did not know what else to call it to be honest. The initial (dVb) were on our bathroom towels years before we have the brand. It's a real collaboration between David and myself. He inspires me in so many ways."

On her negative press: "Simon (Fuller) said to me 'That's why people are interested in you. If you were someone who everybody liked, it would be boring'."
