Victoria Beckham does country living in new cover shoot

August's edition of Vogue will star Victoria Beckham in a seemingly unfamiliar setting - the countryside - holding a dog, and pushing a wheelbarrow, shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

Mrs Beckham is pictured on one of the magazines two alternative covers holding a King Charles Spaniel, and inside the magazine wearing a hat and a pair of wellington boots.

The accompanying feature will discuss her life and career after celebrating her 40th birthday and opening her first standalone store for her fashion brand, on London's Dover Street.

She told the magazine ""I looked at it [turning 40] and said to myself, I have four incredible children, an incredible husband, a business that's doing very well. I've worked hard and achieved a lot. I don't think I could have achieved much more."

And her relaxed look in the photoshoot certainly reflects that, as Victoria rests on a garden wall, wearing a pair of wellies and a checked hat.

Victoria has tweeted her delight at starring on the cover, thanking the editor Alexandra Shulman and Patrick Demarchelier for the shoot.

She has starred on two British Vogue covers in the past - once with the Spice Girls and once solo. This time, however, she has been shot for a double cover - once with a more familiar cover pose, and once holding a dog, wearing a neckscarf.

The countryside shots have raked in praise across the board, reaching as far as Homebase, who tweeted "See @victoriabeckham's horti haute couture in @BritishVogue - Wellies are the new black!"

She told Vogue that she relies on her famous husband David: "I wouldn't be where I am without David. He gives me the security and encouragement to do what I do. I do the same for him."

Despite her fashion career going from strength to strength, Victoria is rumoured to be involved with the upcoming series of the X Factor, having recently tweeted a picture with fellow Spice Girl Mel B, captioned "watch out - we mean business".

It seems there's no stopping team VB.
