Victoria Beckham writes her 17-year-old self a letter

Victoria Beckham has written herself a letter for Vogue's October issue.

Addressing her 17-year-old self, the fashion designer offers words of reassurance:

'I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts College. You have never properly fitted in, although you are shaing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. You have bad acne.

'You think the principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliating bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front. (This may or may not be true.)'

Beckham also speaks about how she will get to experience love at first sight when she will meet David:

'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.

'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.)'

The October issue of Vogue magazine is on newstands from September 8.
