Victoria Beckham talks female empowerment and working mothers

Victoria Beckham talks female empowerment and working mothers

Victoria Beckham was one of eight women honored at Glamour’s 25th anniversary Women of the Year awards on Monday and it’s something that the singer-turned-designer takes very seriously.

She revealed on “Good Morning America”, “This means an enormous amount to me. I love to support and empower women.”

She was honored for her work in the fashion business, as well as her work as an international goodwill ambassador with the UN AIDS program.

She said, “You know, it’s huge. When UNAIDS invited me to be a UNAIDS Global Goodwill Ambassador, it was a huge honor and something that meant an enormous amount to me. This is something I’m very passionate about. I’m spending a lot of time in Africa working very closely with the U.N., speaking on behalf of the incredible women that I’m working with and it took me getting to 40-years-old to realize I have a powerful voice. People will listen to what I say for whatever reason, and I can really make a difference. It means a huge amount.”

People reports:

Beckham also reflected on some of the best advice she’s received from another woman, revealing that it was fellow fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg who left a lasting impression on her.

Beckham said she confided in von Furstenberg about guilt she was feeling for working while she has four children at home.

“For me, I was having dinner with Diane von Furstenberg a few months ago and she’s a woman I have an enormous amount of respect and admiration for,” she said. “I said to her, ‘Diane, when your children were younger and you were working, did you feel guilty?’ And she said, ‘Absolutely not. It’s a waste of time, a waste of energy, it’s aging.’ And she said, ‘Actually, you’re setting a good example with the fact that you’re a woman, you’re going to work. You really are setting a good example.’ ”

After hearing von Furstenberg’s advice, it gave Beckham a new outlook on what it means to be a working mother.

“And that was great advice because I’m sure there are lots of women right now watching TV who are thinking, ‘I feel guilty. I’ve got kids and I’m going to work.’ Actually, it is a positive message to be given to your children and to other women and children as well.”

Victoria Beckham denies David Beckham divorce rumors

Victoria Beckham denies David Beckham divorce rumors

Despite what you may have heard, Victoria Beckham is not filing for divorce from her soccer stud of a husband David.

In a new interview with Grazia, she defended their marriage of sixteen years. She said, “I have never listened to, or commented on, the rumors about any aspect of my life. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and beautiful, healthy, happy children.”

To those who say that they’re kept apart due to their busy schedules, she’s got an answer for that as well. She said, “Yes, we travel a lot with our respective businesses and charitable commitments. But we always make time for each other as a couple and as a family. David and I have nothing to prove. We love each other, look out for each other and are strong as both partners and parents.”

She went on to say, “My husband constantly inspires me and guides me – he has done so much good work, I look up to him and have the utmost respect and admiration for all that he has achieved. David and I both have a strong work ethic and I believe that’s a good example to set our children.”

She added, “David and I explain to the children what privileged lives they lead. We tell them that in many places in the world children are hungry, homeless and sick. They all understand how important it is to help others. Romeo ran the children’s marathon earlier this year and raised an amazing amount of money through sponsorship, which he divided between David’s charity and UNAIDS.”

Glad to hear that they’re sticking by each other and teaching their kids to do well by others who are less fortunate.

More Proof The Beckhams Made A Deal With The Devil

The Royal Wedding Guest: Elton John, David & Victoria Beckham
Gorgeous, super successful, lots of love AND a happy, easy marriage? Seriously, something is UP.

In an interview with ABC News on Friday, Sept. 18, David Beckham revealed some new details about his marriage to Victoria Beckham and how they co-parent their four kids. And it seems…pretty adorable and chill.  Beckham told Juju Chang that his marriage with his wife was “pretty easy,” and they trust each other. UGH BRING A BOOK.  Us Weekly reports:

“We’ve been together for 18 years, we’ve been married for 16 years,” the soccer stud explained. “So you trust each other’s judgment. I think that has worked for us.”

The proud hubby also praised his wife for her “incredible” dedication to designing. “My wife, you know, she’s a hard worker,” he said. Indeed, the former Spice Girl debuted her Spring 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week, where David and their eldest son, Brooklyn, were seated front row.

Noticeably missing this time around was their cute daughter, 4-year-old Harper, who was famously snapped last year picking her nose during her mom’s fashion show. David joked that he was recently scolded by his wife — whom he called the “strict one in the house” — for giving Harper ice cream after mom had already said no.

The dad of four, 40, also said he and Victoria try to protect their kids (Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10, and Harper, 4)  from public scrutiny, especially on social media.

“It’s hard,” Beckham reflected. “Because our 16-year-old son, Brooklyn, he’s got like 4 million Instagram followers. We control everything that he posts, everything that he does, and it’s the same with our other kids.”

This family is so cute and happy and healthy about their relationship to work and the media that it KILLS me. Can you think of a better couple in Hollywood? Can ya?!

Uh, I Don’t Think This Is What Progress Looks Like, Victoria Beckham

This is the face of Peyton Knight, a rail-thin 17 year old model who Victoria Beckham cast in her fashion show.

Unfortunately for Victoria, the mother of four is facing a lot of criticism for using extremely thin models to showcase her designs at New York Fashion Week, an issue she has encountered before because let’s face it, Vicki loves the skinny: being skinny, perpetuating skinny and all things in-between.

To get an idea of what the public is upset about, here’s another really troubling photo of Peyton:
