Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham said she loved living in the US because it is “more accepting of successful women”.
The singer-turned-designer is now back in the UK after launching her successful fashion collection in Beverly Hills.
Beckham, formerly Posh Spice, told Allure magazine: "Living in America for six years was the happiest I think I've ever been. It was much more accepting for a woman to have a career, as well as a man. And I loved it."
The 39-year-old mother of four, who is about to open her first store in London, insisted: "I'm not saying I'm not happy now. I'm just as happy now."
Victoria Beckham has shared a first look at an upcoming documentary charting her journey from Spice Girl to acclaimed fashion designer.
The film, entitled Five Years - The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story, includes behind-the-scenes footage of the designer at work.
In the trailer, Victoria says: “I always dreamed of designing a collection, it was always my passion.
"I was a Spice Girl, married to a footballer, I was trying to do something that no one had really done before,” she adds.
Victoria Beckham has announced she will be opening her first fashion store later this year. It will be on Dover Street in central London:
She said: "It will be the first time that the people will really be able to see the brand through my eyes."
The gold and diamond tiara Victoria Beckham wore on her wedding day has failed to sell at auction.
The coronet-style headpiece had been expected to fetch between £18,000 and £25,000 at the Bonhams sale in central London today.
However, the "fairytale" piece failed to reach the undisclosed reserve price, with the highest bid being £14,000.
The then-Victoria Adams commissioned Irish jewellery designer Slim Barrett to make the tiara for her 1999 wedding to footballer David Beckham.
Victoria Beckham said she had "so much fun" guest editing Vogue Paris' Christmas issue and gave her Twitter followers a sneak peek at the two front covers.
Vogue says the issue "transports readers straight into the world of Victoria Beckham" with the help of an interview, anecdotes, family photos and even some drawings by her children.
The front covers both feature Victoria and David Beckham and were shot by photographers Inez and Vinoodh.
Vogue Paris described the Spice Girl-turned-designer as "a fashion superstar on the New York scene", adding, "She's built a global business empire, never failing to build on her success wherever life has taken her".
