There’s another member of the Tilda Swinton fan club: one Victoria Beckham. “I’m quite obsessed with [her],” she tells
Harper’s Bazaar U.K.
“I find her intriguing, very stylish, she clearly understands fashion.”

Opening up about her clothing line and design process, Beckham — who recently cut her hair — reveals her designer crush, too: Miuccia Prada. “I’m absolutely blown away,” she shares. “Everything she does is genius. I’ve never met her, but everything she does — not just the hair, the makeup, the shows — everything about the brand impresses me.”

At her own studio, Beckham tries new designs out on herself, she divulges. “It’s how I work,” she explains. “I’ll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself. I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn’t do that … it was very hard when I didn’t have my body.”

But now that baby Harper is here and her design career is gaining steam, Beckham is elevating her labels — and picking up awards on the way. In November, the star took home the designer brand trophy at the British Fashion Awards in London. And though she was floored by her victory — “It was an out-of-body experience,” she recalls — she remained grounded. Says Beckham, “The truth is, I would have felt much more comfortable in my pyjamas with the kids and David in a hotel watching it on TV.” For more with Beckham, pick up the May issue of
