Glamour‘s first-ever Full-On Fashion Issue has arrived. The September issue features fashion on every single page, and also introduces its first-ever guest editor….Victoria Beckham. Victoria worked closely with Glamour‘s Cindi Leive to create this special issue, and you can see her mark everywhere.

She also opens up to Glamour about her work, her marriage, how she reinvented her life…and why she’d never say never to having another baby. Glamour’s September issue will be available on newsstands nationwide and digitally (iPad, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color) on August 7.

And check out Victoria’s Twitter feed, @victoriabeckham. She is releasing an exclusive never before seen photo from her cover shoot and the below behind-the-scenes video about the making of the September issue (#makingsept) via Twitter.

Here is a preview of what Victoria shared with Glamour

Victoria on guest editing the September issue…

·      It’s been exciting for me to see my ideas come to life, from type colors to photo selection to casting. I even made my own list of Glamour fashion Don’ts to keep out of the issue: boat shoes (unless of course you’re designer Alber Elbaz or on a boat!), Bermuda shorts, nose rings, Crocs, and American tan tights (that’s nude pantyhose to you).

On why she is never seen smiling…

·      Do you know, I don’t know?! I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] Fashion stole my smile! I’ve created this person. And I’m not saying that’s not me, but I wouldn’t say that’s the whole me…. It’s an armor that goes up.”


On reading 50 Shades of Grey…

·      I’m halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject. I don’t really want to talk to my mother about S&M.”

On her husband, David, coming to see her fashion show in New York this past season…

·      It was the first time! He’s always been working or training. But I was nervous about this show. I was feeling a lot of pressure. He phoned me the night before, and I just said, “I want you to come be with me. I want a cuddle. I really do.” And it was great to have him there. I think he was surprised; I don’t usually bother him with much detail. And then you get there, and the models, the hair, the makeup…I think he was blown away!”

On where she sees herself and her family in 5 years…

·      I’d like everybody to be healthy and happy. I’d like to be growing the business at a steady pace, and to be making more women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident. And I’d never say never about another baby. It’s a juggling act—a career, family, a husband who’s busy. But I’d never say never!”
