Posh turns society beauty for her first 'Vogue' cover

7 MARCH 2008
It's not every day a girl draws comparisons with a young Princess Margaret and Audrey Hepburn. But commentators agreed that Victoria Beckham evoked memories of both beauties when she posed for her first ever cover for fashion bible Vogue.

Wearing a tulle gown by Dolce & Gabbana and dripping in Chopard diamonds given to her by husband David, Posh lived up to her nickname in the ultra-sophisticated photo shoot.

The accolade puts her in hallowed company as Kate Moss, Twiggy and Jerry Hall all feature in the magazine's pantheon of cover girls. But the modest 33-year-old played down comparisons with the models.

Said the singer-turned-designer: "I'd love to look like Linda Evangelista. "You know what? I could try for the rest of my life, but I'm never going to look like her."

The article appears in the April issue of Vogue, on sale on Monday 10th March.
