Victoria Beckham For i-D: Designer Dishes Out Clothing Advice (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

We'd hesitate before taking fashion advice from Victoria Beckham, if only because we'd find it hard to replicate. "Fill your closet with Christian Louboutins" or "You can't go wrong with a navy blue fascinator" aren't exactly the kind of tips we can follow.

But in the newest issue of i-D, for which Posh poses for the striking cover photo, the designer and former Spice Girl opens up about an interesting fashion revelation: she's less comfortable in those tight, trendy dresses than you'd think.

"When I started it was all about the corset dress. That's what people associated me with, and possibly if I'm honest a sign of my own insecurities as well. But the older I get and the more comfortable I am in my own skin, the more I realise that to look great and feel great I haven't always got to wear something tight."

Only Victoria Beckham would channel her insecurities into wearing MORE tight clothes, right?

And though Beckham arguably could look good in a paper bag, she claims that she spends a lot of time pondering what flatters her figure the most.

"I've stood on many a red carpet and been photographed from every angle, so I know how important it is for a dress to be flattering."

"I don’t follow fashion and I don’t follow trends, I just follow my instincts and think, what do I want to wear? What am I feeling for next season?"

Sounds good to us! Although we suspect Posh follows fashion more than she lets on.
