Victoria Beckham has been chosen as one of Elle Magazine's most powerful and visionary designers in fashion.

Speaking to the American magazine the former Spice Girl revealed she still believes in Girl Power.

Wearing a dress from her own collection, when asked what makes her tick as a designer Beckham revealed: "I think it's about being a woman designing for women."

But even a "visionary" like Beckham needs inspiration and the 41-year-old mum-of-four named an up-and-coming model as her fashion muse.
