"I don't want to rely on retouching" Victoria Beckham tells Harper's Bazaar UK
Ever since she and hubby, David Beckham, were tapped to model the Emporio Armani Underwear campaign, Victoria has been hitting the gym seven days a week so she doesn't have to rely on airbrushing.
"I didn't want to rely on retouching," she admitted. "I wanted to look at those pictures in 20 years' time and say, "Wow, look - after three kids - I didn't look bad."
With a successful designing career in the works, Victoria also confessed how nervous she was when launching her début collection: "I felt beyond vulnerable. I'd never known nerves like it in my life. The night before, I got nodules in my throat. I'd never felt such anxiety. I was very aware that people were expecting very short clothes, probably quite revealing, and I really went against that and showed the other side of me."
