Victoria Secret model Victoria Beckham, who has made her name in the cosmetics industry, has taken over the fashion industry and is now known as the ‘Queen of Skincare’.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the former Glamour model revealed how she started her career and why she decided to make her career more fashion-related.
Beckham was in New York City last month to promote her new cosmetics line, which has been dubbed the ‘Velvet Revolution’.
She spoke candidly about the challenges of being a fashion model, why she started making fashion videos and how the brands she models for have changed over the years.
Beckham says she started modeling as a way to pay back the fans who’ve supported her career.
She says she wanted to be part of something bigger and was inspired by the models on Glam, the reality TV show, and the fashion world in general.
“I grew up with that kind of style, that kind, that lifestyle, and that’s why I’m here, I want to help change the world with that,” she said.
“I think fashion has been a little too hard lately.
We’ve seen a lot of people get paid to be celebrities, we’ve seen people get their money’s worth.
But, we need to do better and I think we’re not doing that.”
The model also explained how the changes she’s seen in the industry over the last decade have made her feel like a celebrity.
“When I first started doing makeup, it was hard, it wasn’t glamorous.
I felt like I was an outsider.
I wanted to make a difference and I wanted people to look at me, and I felt that I was going to be the next star,” she explained.
“And it’s been a whole change in the last 10 years, because you can now get a really good, really great look, and it’s not all about makeup, which is what I was doing when I was a teenager.”
Now, I look like a supermodel, and people are actually going, ‘Oh, wow, she’s a super model, she looks like her sister’.
“So I feel like, wow!” she added.
Beckham is set to release her new beauty collection next month.
