Thinking things over… Victoria Beckham has candidly spoken about her teenage insecurities and falling in love at first sight with her famous husband David

Victoria’s incredibly candid letter appears in a ‘What I wish I’d known’ feature in the fashion tome where she also posed for a stunning, pared-back accompanying shoot, shot by photographer Lachlan Bailey.
The story of David and Victoria’s beginnings are well known as he famously revealed after seeing her in the video for the Spice Girls’ 1996 hit Say You’ll Be There he declared: ‘That’s the girl for me and I’m going to get her! She’s my idea of perfection. I knew that if she wanted me, we would be together forever.’

Following his announcement, the brunette beauty, then labelled Posh Spice, headed to Manchester United to see the burgeoning young ace play – after which she admitted she fell in love at first sight – feelings which she admits were mutual.
In the letter, addressed to herself, Victoria’s advice on boyfriends and lasting love read: ‘Learn more about football, especially the offside rule. And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy.

‘While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.)
‘And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)’
The couple married in 1999 and share four children; sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and five-year-old daughter Harper.
Aside from meeting the love of her life, Victoria also cast her mind back to her years at theatre school in Epsom, Surrey, where she admits at the age of 18, she never felt as though she fitted in – feeling “not the prettiest, or the thinnest”.
