VB admits she never shaves her legs [Allure]
When us beauty ladies head over to the States, we always make space in our suitcases for the following items- Revlon nail polishes (a total bargain), Pop Tarts, Lip Smackers, Reese’s Pieces and, of course, a copy of the latest issue of Allure magazine. The legendary US beauty insider has always had us Grazia girls totally hooked! Well listen up girls, as you’re about to have even more incentive to pop across the pond (or to a well-stocked newsagents near you) as breaking news reaching Grazia HQ informs us that Victoria Beckham is this month’s cover star and divulges more than a few beauty secrets…
VB is glowing in the shoot [Allure]
If, like us, you’ve long been obsessed with Victoria’s flawless skin, glossy brunette hair and impressive repertoire of groomed and on-trend beauty looks then you’re in for a real treat, as the 39-year-old reveals a whole host of her beauty secrets in the latest issue- including the fact that she never shaves her legs! However, before you get all grossed out, VB also reveals that she has instead opted for laser treatment to keep her legs and bod fuzz-free, as recommended by one of her close pals, Eva Longoria. She said, “I don't shave my legs. I got laser which is amazing. You can go back for little touch-ups if you do see little hairs appearing. But I've been very lucky that I haven't had to. That was one of the best tips that Eva Longoria ever gave me.”
Although us beauty ladies also happen to know that VB is a huge fan of both Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir, £15 and Royal Apothic’s Hand Cream, £20, unfortunately you’re going to have to invest a little more to get Mrs Beckham’s envious bod as she also revealed that she runs 4 miles every morning to stay in shape. In between designing clothes and running around after 4 children? Impressive work, VB.
VB is under the spotlight [Allure]
The 39-year-old fashion designer also admits that she wept when she received a British Fashion Award two years ago because she couldn't believe how much her life has changed since she was bullied for being "different". Victoria said, "I had come such a long way. I didn't go to a private school; it was a public school. It was not a very nice school. [I was bullied because I was] different from all the other children at the school. I really wouldn't wish it on any kid, because it's horrible." VB also credits her former Spice Girl bandmates for helping her to overcome her lack of self-esteem, saying that they helped her to become more confident. Girl power, indeed! Victoria said, “I think what gave me confidence in myself was meeting the other girls. We always said we were all like rejects in our own way. We had to work hard, and they helped me accept me for who I was."
Victoria looks totally drop dead gorgeous on the front of this month’s Allure complete with a metallic bronze smoky eye, nude lip and strong defined brows which was done by no less than makeup maestro Charlotte Tilbury- and makeup is clearly all that VB now needs to feel good about herself, admitting that she had once "purchased" her cleavage although she recently removed the implants. VB- we think you look just gorgeous the way you are.
