Victoria Beckham says her latest clothing line channels her "inner girl".

The singer-turned-designer recently launched her second range - Victoria by Victoria Beckham, a more affordable dress collection - and says she was inspired by outfits she wanted to wear and show everyone she doesn't take herself too seriously.

Victoria - who recently gave birth to her first daughter, Harper Seven, a sister for brothers, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz - said: "It's definitely channelling my inner girl. I started this collection before I was pregnant and the doctors told me at first I was having a boy. So mainly I wanted to do dresses that I wanted, that weren't 'out there' - and at the same time show that, contrary to what most people think, I do have a sense of humour."

Victoria - who also has her more expensive line, Victoria Beckham - says the dresses took a long time coming because she wanted to make everything was just right.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: "It has taken ages to get this together because it took a long time to find a factory that could deliver the right quality at the right price. Otherwise we'd have done it sooner."
