The former Spice Girl spoke out about going undercover in the new issue of fashion bible InStyle
Victoria Beckham has revealed her family tries to stay low-key – and try to avoid attention whenever they can.
Victoria, David and their kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper are one of the most photographed families in the world, but the star admits they manage to stay under the radar on some occasions, but on others, it just can’t be helped.
“I think people would really be surprised at how we try to avoid too much attention,” she told InStyle.
“But there are certain places where you cannot avoid being photographed. It is what it is. I’ve had this since I was 18 years old.”
Victoria sat for two exclusive shoots and an interview with the fashion magazine, and posed for various cute pictures with kids wearing her new range for US chain Target.
She also told the publication that the moment designer Tom Ford saw her as a designer over a pop star, she was delighted.

“I’m really proud of what I achieved with the Spice Girls, but I’m also proud of everything I have done with my brand,” she admitted. “So that meant a lot me, you know? That’s Tom Ford saying, ‘We look at you as a credible designer’, which was very cool.”
Even so, Victoria admitted the path to acceptance in the fashion world hasn’t been automatic, but her positivity has got her through.
“I’ve got a pretty thick skin,” she told the magazine of the reviews of her first collection in 2008. “It could have been worse. They could have said, ‘We thought it was going to be rubbish, and it is.’ Instead, they thought it was really good, and I look at that as a positive. I look at everything as a positive, to be honest with you.”
