Beckham takes on car designer post

Victoria Beckham has become the new Creative Design Executive for Range Rover.

The former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer - who already has her own successful clothing range - has been asked to create the interior of the luxury car firm's new Range Rover Evoque and she can't wait to get started on her new job.

Speaking at the 40th anniversary party for the brand, Victoria said: "This is a very exciting collaboration. The classic British heritage of Range Rover and the effortless style, quality and beauty is something I truly admire and also what I hope to achieve with my own brand. I am honoured to take on this role and be part of the creative team."

The new car will be available in four-wheel and two-wheel drive versions and will make its official public debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover and Range Rover Design Director, said of the collaboration: "Victoria understands luxury products - she is a Range Rover fan and has been a Range Rover owner for many years. I believe this appointment adds a new dimension to my design team as we continue to design products to appeal to a wider audience."
