Victoria Beckham has opened up about her marriage to husband David, revealing it was love at first sight for the singer-turned-fashion designer.

In a letter, addressed to herself, that was published in Britain’s Vogue, the 42-year-old gives her younger self advice about love.

‘Learn more about football, especially the offside rule. And yes, love at first sight does exist,’ she writes. ‘It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy.

‘While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one,)’ she continued. ‘And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)’

Victoria also opened up about her teenage insecurities and admitted she never felt like she truly fit in.

‘I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts college,’ Victoria writes. ‘You have never properly fitted in, although you are sharing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. You have bad acne.

‘You think the principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliatingly bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front. (This may or may not be true.)’

And to finish up, the mum-of-four also made fun of her poor fashion choices and tells her younger self she will mature and find her own signature style eventually.

‘You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair,’ she teases. ‘It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself.’

‘Fashion will take on added stature one day, but try not to be stifled by it. You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, minidresses for crisp white shirts. And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed.’

We’re loving the new Vicky B more and more every day!
