Victoria Beckham: I was school trendsetter

Victoria Beckham has joked that she did her best to make her school uniform look a little more trendy.
The singer-turned-designer started her career as a member of the Spice Girls but style has always been her first love. She has laughed that even when she was studying she couldn't get enough of accessorising her outfits.
"I was quite an awkward teenager, I was never particularly confident with my body or the way that I looked. I used to try and play around with everything, even try and customise my school uniform. I used to set trends at school, I have to say," she giggled to Love magazine.
"I did try to make the school uniform look a bit better than it actually did."
Although she loved clothes, Victoria was obsessed with singing and dancing as a young girl so spent most of her time in tap shoes and tutus.
Since leaving the Spice Girls her designs have been worn by big-name stars such as Eva Longoria and Jennifer Lopez. Victoria may have moved on professionally, but is still intensely proud of what she achieved with her bandmates Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C. That is one of the reasons she was happy to unite with the girls for the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony last year.
"I am very respectful of my past and the other girls and it was fun and it was great to do the Olympics. You know, I'm very proud to be British - honoured to be asked - and it was fun and we've got a lot of fans that have been with us right from the start. So there was never a doubt in my mind about taking part in that with the other girls," she said.
"I'm never going to be 'angry' when people mention my past, I mean it is what it is - it's great."
