Lauded fash­ion editor Tim Blanks spoke with Vic­to­ria Beck­ham for this cover story from page 146, re­count­ing her ad­ven­tur­ous style and self-dep­re­cat­ing wit – some­thing he sees as one of her most pos­i­tive at­tributes. “The best thing about talk­ing to Vic­to­ria is al­ways her sly sense of hu­mour, which is of­ten at her own ex­pense,” he says. “I won’t spoil the mo­ment that made me laugh the most, I’ll save that for the piece, but I did en­joy her anec­dotes about the Spice Girls’ trip to Oz.” Re­veal­ing why he ad­mires the de­signer, who cel­e­brated 10 years in the fash­ion in­dus­try this Septem­ber, Blanks pins it down to Beck­ham’s at­ti­tude: “I ad­mire Vic­to­ria be­cause of her fear­less­ness in the face of peo­ple’s pre­con­cep­tions. That’s why she’s made such a suc­cess of her busi­ness.”
