Victoria Beckham reveals daughter Harper, five, can already run in platform heels

Victoria Beckham has revealed her five-year-old daughter Harper takes after her in more ways than one, especially when it comes to wearing heels.

The fashion designer chatted to ITV’s This Morning about all things beauty and fashion from New York Fashion Week and revealed the insightful tit-bit into her little girl’s life.

Describing her only daughter with husband David as “very, very girly”, she added that she “also loves to run around in the garden with her brothers and play football”.

She insisted: “[Harper] is very, very feminine and she loves playing with make-up and my clothes as well – she has been able to run in [Alaia] platforms for a few years right now, she can wear heels like most grown-ups cannot!”

Former Spice Girls star Victoria, 42, is known for her love of a towering heel and her affection for the tricky shoe style has clearly rubbed off on her little one.

She went on to explain that she is very close to her daughter and that, for them, playing around with make-up is “great mother and daughter time”.

Victoria, who now has her own make-up range with Estee Lauder, went on to discuss her long-running love of all things beauty and how she likes to “make the best of what I have”.

“I’ve always loved make-up, I’m very, very girly,” she explained.

“I used to sit and watch my mum get ready, my mum is very glamorous, and I remember sitting on her bed and watching her apply her make-up, get dressed and do her hair … I like to make the best of what I have, I’m not a supermodel, clearly, I’m not a make-up artist, I’m a real woman.”

When asked about what she wants her lasting legacy to be, Victoria said that she wants people to think of her as “someone who really celebrated being a woman”.

She also divulged some rather hilarious personal information: that husband David steals her beauty products.

“It doesn’t annoy me, he looks so beautiful!” she laughed.
