Victoria Beckham has stopped caring about what people think of her.

The 43-year-old star has spent almost all of her adult life in the spotlight and Victoria has admitted she's now reached a stage in her career when she no longer frets about what people are saying about her.

Victoria - who first found international fame as part of the Spice Girls - explained: ''I have grown up in public since I was 19, my days of worrying about what people think, have been left behind.''

The brunette beauty - who is married to retired soccer star David Beckham - has established herself as one of the world's best-known fashion designers over recent years.

But Victoria admits she's always been aware that her history as a pop star could have undermined her ambitions.

Of her new career, Victoria - whose image appears on the front cover of Vogue Spain magazine - told the publication: ''I was always aware that people would have previous conceptions of my brand just because I having been part of the Spice Girls and for being married to a soccer player.

''That's why it was so important the product spoke for itself. And it did, from the beginning.''

Despite fan pressure, Victoria has persistently resisted calls for her to reunite with her former bandmates.

But the designer has revealed she's maintained a good relationship with the rest of the group, which also included Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell.

Victoria - who has sons Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 12, and six-year-old daughter Harper Seven - said: ''I'm still talking to all the Spice Girls and I'm very proud of what we achieved together. I love the Spice Girls' music and I think I'll always like it.

''I loved acting and singing, but all that happened at a time when I did not have the same professional commitments as today. And I did not have children.

''It would be very difficult for me to do it now. I must be home for the children and I also have an office to go to.''
