VB UNDER PRESSURE:
Following a stressful few weeks leading up to NYFW, Victoria is struggling to find a work-life balanceé
Flitting between running her global fashion empire, scheduling in two workouts a day, being a full-time mum and overseeing brand Beckham, we often wonder how Victoria crams it all in. So when Look heard the 43-year-old fashion designer was struggling with her work-life balance last week, we weren’t surprised.
With the stress of New York Fashion Week, eldest son Brooklyn having just left for university and with Vic being away from home, sources say VB’S having a pretty hard time right now.
‘Victoria has a way of making it all look easy,’ says a close pal. ‘But the truth is, she’s stressed out most of the time. Her ambitions are huge, and instead of sitting back and enjoying the fruits of her labour, she wants to keep going. She might seem like Superwoman, but she’s only human and needs downtime. Right now she’s struggling. ‘This is her favourite time of year, but it’s also the time she dreads the most. She’s been so nervous in the build up to her fashion show, and that coupled with being away from her family is tough. But she loves her job so she’s torn.’
Vic’s spoken out about feeling under pressure in the past. ‘I am passionate, because there’s a lot of pressure,’ she said. ‘But I recognise that can be my strength in certain areas and possibly my weakness in others.’
But while Vic is finding it tough, according to our source, she’s trying to fit in a family holiday later this year, as well as a romantic getaway with husband David.
‘Victoria’s pushing for a family break, probably around Brooklyn’s uni holiday in November,’ says a pal. ‘David doesn’t want to wait that long, though. He’s begging her to take time off so they can go somewhere romantic, just the two of them.’
Poor Vic, we reckon she should give herself a break. After all, her list of accomplishments is seriously impressive…
Passion can be my weakness in certain areas
