Victoria Beckham shares her most surprising character trait

"People are probably surprised that I have a sense of humour," Victoria Beckham has said of first impressions of her. "I like to take the mickey out of myself.

"As much as I take what I do very seriously, I also want to have fun. I like to poke fun at myself… And I think that surprises people."

The former Spice Girl spoke about her fun-loving side in a new interview with Elle Singapore magazine. She also spoke about her transition from pop star to acclaimed fashion designer, and said her goal is to empower women through her clothing line.

"We have five categories now: the main line, VVB (Victoria by Victoria Beckham), denim, eyewear and also handbags," she said. "We've started pre-collections as well over the past few seasons. E-commerce is doing very, very well. We're going to open our first flagship store in London, which I'm very excited about."

Asked who she thinks wears her designs, Victoria replied, "I think that she's a woman that wants to look good. Appreciates luxury. Likes fashion. I want to make a women feel her best. I want to empower women."

Victoria faced cynicism who she first embarked on her fashion career – now she is an acclaimed designer, who has more than proved the naysayers wrong. Part of her success lies in her dedication.

"I just like to be very involved with every element of my business," the mum-of-four said. "And I have a great team of people that work with me. But I'm very, very involved.

"My name is on the label, I have a point of view. And it's important that it comes from me. I don't want to hand that over to anybody else. I wouldn't know how to."
