Victoria Beckham wants to empower

Victoria Beckham has said she aims to empower women with her fashion designs and that she's not afraid of failure.

The former Spice Girl, whose band were famous for their "girl power" slogan, has posed for the cover of Elle magazine in Singapore.

She told the mag: "I want to make a woman feel her best. I want to empower women."

And she added that she was 100 per cent involved in her business, the Daily Mirror reported, saying: "My name is on the label, I have a point of view. And it's important that it comes from me. I don't want to hand that over to anybody else. I wouldn't know how to..."

The mum-of-four, 40, who appears on the cover of Elle wearing a tan trench coat, added that she never worries about the prospect of her business failing.

"I'm not afraid. I think you can learn from everything. I don't ever think of the negatives, I think of the positives. I'm not competing with anybody else out there; I'm just competing with myself," she said.

"I think if you're too afraid of failure then you won't challenge yourself, then you won't move forward. I like to challenge myself."

She said of her personality: "People are probably surprised that I have a sense of humour. I like to take the mickey out of myself. As much as I take what I do very seriously, I also want to have fun.

"I like to poke fun at myself... And I think that surprises people."

The full interview appears in Elle Singapore's July 2014 issue.
