Victoria Beckham was as famous for her sour-puss face as she was her LBDs during her time with the Spice Girls, but it looks like her miserable expression had less to do with cultivating an image and more to do with the fact she was, in fact, a bit…miserable.
Opening up about Vic's time in the world-famous girl group, the star's manager, Simon Fuller, recently revealed all was not well with the girl from Hertfordshire in the 90s.
While speaking at the Business Innovation Awards in Los Angeles, Simon admitted that the highly-acclaimed fashion designer wasn't totally content during her time in the band.
"Victoria, coming out of the Spice Girls, being married to David Beckham, launched a solo career. She never felt comfortable. Even in the Spice Girls – it was great fun, she was in the world’s biggest group for two or three years, but she didn’t feel comfortable," he revealed.
Explaining that Victoria desperately hoped to establish herself in her own right, but struggled with performing, Simon continued: "She could sing pretty well, she could dance pretty well, but she always felt uncomfortable."
According to Simon, the now mum-of-four came to him for advice about her career path, and he swiftly pointed her in the right direction.
"It was one of those things that you get this kind of clarity of vision. I’ve known Victoria since she was 18 and her passion in life was always clothes," he said. "I said ‘You should be in fashion. You should be a designer’."
Heaping praise upon the 42-year-old star, Simon insisted Victoria has finally found her calling, saying: "She will be – without any doubt – one of the world’s greatest designers in the next few years.”
We're with him on that one.
