Victoria and David Beckham are one of the cutest celebrity couples out there, and in a new letter to her younger self, titled “What I wish I’d known,” Victoria shared the adorable story of how the pair first met.
In the letter, which was published in the October issue of British Vogue, Victoria shares that she first met David in the in the Manchester United players’ lounge.
“Learn more about football, especially the offside rule,” Beckham wrote of her husband's previous career as a pro footballer. “And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy,” she added of her first meeting with David.
“While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)"
Beckham also wrote about her fashion choices, having gone from a red carpet risk-taker to one of the hottest fashion designers in the industry over the past decade.
“You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair,” she wrote. “It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself."
"Fashion will take on added stature one day, but try not to be stifled by it," the designer added. "You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, minidresses for crisp white shirts. And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed."
The full letter will be included in the magazine's October issue, on sale Sept. 8.
