Victoria Beckham reveals that husband David told her to dress more like the 'old days' as she lifts the lid on what being married to the heartthrob is REALLY like 

  • Victoria, 42, had a penchant for bling and bright colours in the 2000s
  • Has since adopted a much more pared back sense of style
  • Revealed that David told her she should dress more like the old days
  • Also shared the sartorial banter they have, including him comparing her to an elf 

Victoria Beckham has successfully made the stylish leap from glitzy WAG with a penchant for bling and bright colours to an acclaimed fashion designer with a love of minimalist tailoring.

The 42-year-old, who has cemented her status as one of the world's most esteemed designers, has adopted a precise uniform of pared back looks, including the classic silhouetted LBD, chic navy blazer and cigarette pants. 

But it seems that her husband David preferred her old school wardrobe and told her she should dress more like the old days.

The fashion designer and mother-of-four, who wed the footballer in 1999, lifted the lid on wedded bliss and the banter they share.

Speaking to The Telegraph as she launches her new fashion collaboration with Target, Victoria explained that the pair share plenty of sartorial banter.

Victoria, 41, revealed that her husband told her that she looked great and should dress more like the old days and once compared her to an elf from daughter Harper's school play.

'I took that as a compliment, but it's true, there's definitely things I wear that he doesn't understand,' she said.

And it isn't just her husband giving her fashion advice; she revealed that Harper advises her on which shoes to wear on the school run and Cruz compliments her when she wears laidback tracksuit bottoms.
