Fashion icon, businesswoman, wife of an internationally-renowned footballer and, of course, member of one of the most successful pop acts in British history, Victoria Beckham is the quintessential modern celebrity. Yet although she is one of the world's best-known public figures, very little is known about the woman behind the glamorous exterior. In Victoria, Sean Smith embarks on the first in-depth study of this international superstar, and reveals a fascinating portrait of the girl who transformed herself from an overweight, insecure and bullied teenager into Posh Spice.
Victoria is a complete reasessment of the woman everyone thinks they know. Smith goes back to the very beginning to recount the highs and lows of her extraordinary life, from childhood to the present. Along the way, she has struggled with her weight, jealousy, the pressures of fame, and her husband's alleged infidelity. Victoriais a thorough and affectionate account of the obstacles she has faced, her rise to fame, and her current life with David as one half of the world's most recognised celebrity couple.
Sean Smith is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading celebrity biographers. He has written several bestselling books, the latest of which is Robbie: The Biography, chronicling the life of England’s singing sensation Robbie Williams.
