Victoria Beckham - Victoria Beckham embarrassed by airbrushed photographs

Victoria Beckham hates being airbrushed in photos.

The womenswear designer finds it ''embarrassing'' when her photographs are excessively retouched and insists she doesn't need to hide her age.

She told New York Times newspaper: ''Normally in a fashion shoot you'd be plastered in makeup, in amazing clothes.

''I find it embarrassing when you don't look like yourself, when you've had tons of retouching.

''I don't want to be made to look like I'm 25, I'm 39. I don't have any issues with my age.''

Victoria - who has just opened her own fashion headquarters in Battersea, London - revealed she has her eyes set on a huge empire following the successful launch of her e-commerce store last month.

She explained: ''I just wanted to create beautiful clothes, good quality clothes I wanted to wear myself, and then I wanted to create handbags, because I couldn't find the right handbag that I wanted to carry.

''Then I couldn't find the right sunglasses, so I decided to make my own sunglasses.

''I want to get bigger and bigger I absolutely want an empire.''

Meanwhile the designer - who is married to retired footballer David Beckham - is tipped to open a standalone Victoria Beckham boutique on Dover Street, in Mayfair London.
