VB ‘down since turning 40′

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham is reportedly on a downer after her 40th Birthday.

The former Spice Girl celebrated her milestone birthday with her family at the Grand Canyon before attending a star studded birthday party in London last month. But an insider close to the fashion designer has revealed how now the celebrations are over, Victoria is upset she didn’t manage to accomplish one of her biggest goals before her big day.

“While Vic knows that her fashion career is going really well, she’s told friends the failure of not achieving that [US Vogue] cover by the time she was 40 was disappointing and a little bitter,” the source told British magazine Heat. “Vic’s using it to fire herself up. She’s reminding herself of what she has achieved and now she’s saying, ‘I will make it on to that cover.’”

Victoria has already made it on to the covers of British and French Vogue. After recently speaking about turning self-doubt into something that you can benefit from, it seems like her determination to land the US edition’s front page has returned.

“I think everyone has crazy moments of self-doubt and I think an element of that is probably quite important,” she said during a Skype Q&A last month. “It’s about challenging yourself and always staying very positive. It’s about positive thinking, positive energy, and fighting if you need to fight.”

Victoria has reportedly been upset further by the recent cover featuring Kanye West and fiancée Kim Kardashian.

“Victoria can’t get her head around the cover,” an insider told British magazine Star. “It’s mocking her disappointment. She appreciates that Kanye is a global star and Kim is successful, but she can’t help but feel she is more deserving because of how hard she has worked.”
