A look back at Victoria Beckham’s September 2013 cover shoot gives an insight into the former pop star, designer and mother’s constant normalcy.
Alot has changed since Victoria Beckham first covered Vogue Australia. Her daughter, Harper, is no longer a toddler and instead a walking, talking seven-year-old; her husband, David, had only just retired from the pitch; and her business, which was then in its first five years, recently celebrated a decade in the industry during London fashion week. But despite the impressive growth of both her business and family life, Beckham remains remarkably humble – something that shone through in her Vogue interview with writer Lisa Armstrong. Speaking of her night-time routine, Beckham was frank, sharing: “Once the children are in bed I’d rather work or shove on a face pack and pluck my eyebrows.” Words, as Armstrong pointed out at the time, that were seriously normal for someone as famous as she.
