Victoria Beckham first burst on to the airwaves as one part to the chart topping Spice Girls who rejuvenated the female spirit with their phrase “girl power”.

Even then, it was somewhat difficult for the average British woman to look at these successful stars as true representatives but that gap has surely widened as the girls became thinner, richer and less in tune with normal life.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Posh, who is elegantly pictured in an array of outfits and a diamond ring, claimed that she continues to be the image of UK women.

Speaking to the publication’s deputy editor Sarah Bailey, Beckham explained what happens after a new design from her fashion range is ready to be tried on.

She said: “We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot whatever and then I say ‘okay, I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here’.”

At a trim size six, she is a far cry from the average British female’s waistline of between 14 and 16.
