I think we can all agree that Victoria Beckham is just a little bit successful. (And by that we mean INSANELY successful.)

The Spice Girl turned full-time fashion designer has had the kind of career most people can only dream of, dominating not just one but two industries - and she's only just turned 40. 

VB celebrated her birthday earlier this month with a hike in the Grand Canyon with husband David Beckham. She also enjoyed a big bash with chef mate Gordon Ramsay.

She also took some time out last week to speak to Mashable about social media and the advice she'd give girls trying to make their dream career happen...

Her careers advice...

'I often say the best advice is to get as much experience as you can in the field you want to enter. And of course, be passionate and be willing to work hard. I have followed that in my own career and you see that in the Skype Collaboration Project. I hope it encourages women to work hard and follow their dreams.'

On the best working wardrobe...

'I recently worked with [Facebook chief operating officer] Sheryl Sandberg on the #Banbossy campaign and she is a great ambassador of style for the modern working woman.'

How she got hooked on social media...

'My earliest memory of social media is definitely with Twitter. It was the first social media platform I joined and I started with it pretty early in 2010. Twitter introduced me to social media as a whole; now I’m on seven different platforms. I love being able to directly communicate with this audience from anywhere in the world.'

The apps she's obsessed with...

'I always check Instagram, and for music I use Spotify and Pandora.'
