Victoria Beckham has brought Playboy Bunny to 2022 as she posed up a storm in a stylish display on a magazine cover. The Spice Girl turned fashion designer is gracing the cover of Grazia magazine’s Luxe Issue this month and donned a pair of black bunny ears for the occasion.
She has chatted to the publication as she launches a new form-fitting capsule collection called VB Body. The line takes the star back to her figure-hugging first collection of outfits in the mid-2000s before the creation of her fashion empire.
Posing for the front cover, Victoria appeared to be in a playful mood as she pulled a shocked face while holding up her arms with her hands only just passing the ears she was wearing. The 48-year-old, who is married to former Manchester United and England footballer David, wore a black cropped blazer over a classic bra with a pair of matching shorts.
In the interview, Victoria opened up about her own fitness regime and described wanting to be very thin as an “old-fashioned attitude,” suggesting women today want to look “healthy and curvy”. She says the pieces in her new collection were partly inspired by spending time in Miami where David co-owns the Inter Miami football team.
She told the magazine: “There are a lot of really curvy women in Miami, and they really own it, you know? They walk along Miami beach with not a lot of clothes on, and they look fantastic. They show their bodies off with such confidence. I found both their attitude and their style really liberating.
“And as a mother, I loved the fact that (her daughter) Harper was around women who were really celebrating their curves and enjoying how they look.” She added: “It’s an old-fashioned attitude, wanting to be really thin. I think women today want to look healthy, and curvy. They want to have some boobs – and a bum. The curvier you are, the better my VB Body dresses look.”
The mother-of-four also said she wants to get “as good a bottom as I can get” and has been doing squats every morning while also changing her fitness regime to focus on lifting heavy weights five or six days a week with David and their personal trainer. “I’ve always been a bit scared of weights but it turns out I love them. I’ve even got those special gloves to wear,” she said.
“It’s good to switch things up and keep your body guessing. I’ve got so much more muscle tone now.” Asked what David is like as a workout partner, she added: “Hilarious. I mean, obviously, he’s amazing in the gym, but in our sessions, he’s always the one who procrastinates.”
Victoria also suggested her husband of 23 years is a fan of the new look. “Much as I do dress for myself, I also love the fact that he loves me in these dresses. Men love to see a bit of shape,” she commented. The couple, who married on July 4 1999, are parents to four children – sons Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19 and Cruz, 17, and daughter Harper, 10.
Earlier this month David told his wife she was ‘welcome’ after she gushed over him on his 47th birthday. She shared a photo of her other half standing on an idyllic beach with the sand between his toes in a pair of red swimming shorts.
“Not bad for 47!! (Lucky me!!),” Victoria added and it wasn’t long before David reshared the post with his own millions of followers, adding: “Your welcome @victoriabeckham,” with a crying laughing face emoji.
