When Victoria Beckham talks business, we listen.

Attending an intimate talk hosted by Porter magazine to celebrate their ‘Incredible Women’ series - including the fashion mogul herself - the style-savvy designer shared some valuable advice for young women today.

Telling it like it is, Beckham encouraged women to be positive in the face of negativity, and explained why it will always pay off . The designer tells Porter, “Believe in yourself. Everyone always told me I couldn’t do it.  I was never picked for anything. I don’t come from a privileged background and I think that if I can do it, anyone can. When people say no, I say yes!”

This comes just days after her business was valued at a cool £100 million. Not only that, but the mother of four has just received a £30 million cash injection for her brand, and plans to upscale, moving her empire into a posh new pad in Hammersmith.

And just when we think we can’t admire Victoria Beckham any more, she shares her secret to balancing her incredibly hectic business with a busy family life and friendships. 

She explains, “I had a girl group! I don’t have a huge amount of friends, just a few very close ones. The challenge for me is having a job, a family and a social life. You can only really have two of the three.”

Naturally, the designer didn’t disappoint in the style stakes, opting for a sleek black tuxedo-style two-piece to attend the event at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Mayfair.  Said jacket and trouser combo were both from the designer’s very own collection. The tailored outfit was topped with the new Dorothy glittering pumps and a matching red clutch.

Take your cue from Victoria’s easy evening style and invest in a pair of showstopper Dorothy shoes (below) ahead of party season. 

Bravo VB.
