Wanna know who this month's woman of inspiration is? None other than the lady who is taking over the fashion world slowly; Victoria Beckham.
Of course you didn't expect me to liken her to a chameleon but what characteristic is often accompanied with a chameleon if not its ever changing character? Victoria Beckham has gone from the girl with bad skin thanks to acne while growing up to pop star wannabe in girl band to a WAG/lover to mother and now queen of fashion. Talk about accomplishments *phew* Ever since she won the Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, Victoria has really shown us what she's capable of. For those of you who expected her to stop at WAG she went further just like her book title says "That Extra Half An Inch".
One of my really good friends got me that book last month and I spent the next 4 days completely absorbed in that book. I missed train stops and had late nights cause of that book but it was a good read. I felt like I personally connected with Victoria by reading that book, not only did she pick apart fashion and break it down for even a man to understand, she made some personal confessions that showed that she's just as human as we are. Though we see her poker face in the tabloids, with huge sunglasses and red sole heels that tower on forever, she is in fact quite down to earth. And I'm not the only one who seems to think so, read her interview with Sarah Bailey on Harper's Bazaar May issue. Funny she's the cover of Harper's Bazaar and her daughter's name is Harper too. Lovely coincidence ey?
She's my woman of inspiration because she shows that pushing an extra mile will really pay off, though she was really exhausted from the New York Fashion Week and it showed on her petite frame, her hard work really paid off. Winning that award just set aside a gold pave for her to gracefully walk on. Nothing comes easy of course. Not only does she exude confidence but success as well; loving wife, supermum, business woman, British icon and now fashion queen. Her fashion line appeals to me because it is so personal it is exactly what you would picture Victoria wearing; it's an ultra focus of her personal style. Be sure to check out her Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection, I know I've got my eyes on some of those demure dresses.
