With a devoted, handsome loving husband, four beautiful children and a successful pop star and fashion designer career to call her own, she lives a life that many must envy.
But Victoria Beckham has insisted that she is just like the average woman, especially when it comes to her catwalk creations.
And she said she represents the general public, especially when it comes to testing out her own designs.
In an interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, which was accompanied by a stunning photo shoot, very reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe in their beach wear.
And Victoria said she always prefers to wear her own clothes to feel more at one with the customer, although she bemoaned that she couldn't do that when she was pregnant with her long-for daughter Harper last year.
She said: 'We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I say "OK, I'm going to put it on. I stand for the general public here".
'It's how I work. I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn't do that. It's part of the process - I'll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself. It was very hard when I didn't have my body.'
Victoria has really established herself as a fashion designer in the last couple of years, and this year won Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Award.
Something she said was like an 'out of body experience' when her name was called out.
She said: 'When they read my name, I was genuinely not expecting it. It was like my heart was going to jump out of my body.
'I came offstage and said, "I cried three times, I didn't thank the people I wanted to thank, I was really rubbish". But I think people saw the real me...and the truth is, I would have felt much more comfortable in my pyjamas with the kids and David in a hotel watching it on TV.'
Victoria's designs can be seen on many celebrities who have snapped up her creations to wear at red carpet even
