Victoria Beckham is reflecting on her decision to “close the chapter” of the Spice Girls.

In a letter to her future self for British Vogue, the fashion designer opened up about the moment she knew it was time to “uncover your own dreams” at an Elton John concert and step away from the girl group.


“He performed ‘Tiny Dancer,’ as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him,” the 46-year-old wrote, referring to John’s Las Vegas residency. “It was a life-changing moment — while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion.”

“That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams. It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl,” she added. “For the first time, you were venturing out on your own, and it was terrifying. It was scary to close a chapter that defined you.”

Beckham went on to say how she continues “reinventing” herself and “ignoring the naysayers.”

“You always look beyond the conventional wisdom to pave your own path,” she wrote. “First, you found this passion in fashion, and most recently, beauty. What comes next? I’m dying to know.”

The letter in British Vogue is a follow-up to a letter she wrote to her 18-year-old self back in 2017, where she also spoke about her time in the group.

“Together you will make it OK to look different. And, as the Spice Girls, you will sell 75 million records,” she wrote to her younger self in 2017. “You cannot possibly imagine your future life right now. You will travel on private planes, visit incredible countries, stay in fantastic hotels.”

“You are lucky to be there,” she added then. If you don’t join the Spice Girls, you might always be that insecure person in that little shell, and you will never become who you truly are.”

Beckham decided not to join her former bandmates Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown and Emma Bunton when they decided to get back together in 2018. (Her last performance as a Spice Girl was at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.)
