Victoria Beckham Stressed About What to Wear to the Royal Wedding

Victoria Beckham‘s latest Vogue profile touches on some facts we already know: she initially struggled to gain acceptance in the fashion world, eventually defied the critics, took home a British Fashion Award this year — and often Skypes with her London-based team while wearing her PJs.

But there are some fun new factoids about the British superstar, too. For instance, despite her slim frame and gorgeous looks, she’s still self-conscious about her height. “I’ve never been a six-foot-tall, skinny model [she is five feet four], so therefore I want to create an illusion,” she explains. “People always think I’m taller than I am — not just because of the shoes I wear but because of the way I dress. It’s all relatively streamlined.”

She also loves shopping, but rarely visits stores. During a trip to Barneys with Vogue editor Hamish Bowles, she admits she makes most of her purchases through Net-a-Porter.com.

And though she always has something to wear, dressing for last year’s Royal Wedding was a bit of a challenge. “First, obviously, we were very, very excited,” she says of the invite. “[But] what do you wear to the biggest wedding ever — when you’re enormously pregnant?” The answer? A look from her own collection, of course!

And not that there’s ever been any doubt, but the story also makes it clear that husband David is totally supportive of his wife’s career, too. “Usually I’m a calming influence, but I think it’s nice for her to just concentrate on that,” he says of her seasonal fashion shows in New York, which he generally doesn’t go to. But this year was different: the soccer star attended his first Victoria Beckham show in February, taking a front-row seat for her fall presentation after surprising her in her hotel room at 5 a.m. Now that’s love.
