Happy birthday, Victoria Beckham! As the fashion designer turns 42, we look at some of her best quotes
1. "I want to empower women. I want women to feel like the best version of themselves, I want them to feel confident, and I feel very blessed that I have a job that I love, to work in an industry with such great people. Like I said, this is a journey for me and I am continuing to learn." – British Vogue
2. "I would do anything for my children and I think every woman has the right to health and every woman has the right to give their children a healthy future. It’s why I realise I have to step forward and do whatever I can do. I want to get to know the women and understand them. It was life changing when I want to South Africa." – on her appointment as a UN Goodwill Ambassador in The Daily Mail
3. "We were real, we weren't choreographed. Individually we weren't that great, but collectively, we worked together and all the girls were relatable." – Victoria on The Spice Girls in Harpers Bazaar
4. "I used to wear clothes which would make me stand out and now I don’t so much because I don’t feel I have anything to prove." – The Guardian
5. "When I’m starting work on the collection, I just sit with my team and talk to them about what I like, what I find inspiring, what I’m desiring, what I want to wear, what I haven’t done before.

6. "When people ask if I have any advice for young designers, the best advice I could ever give to somebody is to work for someone else, when you are playing with someone else's money.

I learnt so much from the professionals that I was surrounding myself with, and I continue to learn a lot, I have never pretended to know everything." – British Vogue
7. "Nothing ever came naturally to me, I was never the cleverest, never best at anything. But we always tell our children that if you work hard and believe in yourself, you can do what you want." – The Daily Mail
8. "People say [fashion] is a horrible, cut-throat industry, [but] I have had a very nice experience and I think, why is that? It’s not about me as a celebrity. The product is good. The quality is good. The sell-through is good." – The Telegraph
