維多莉亞·貝克漢寫給18歲的自己 - 真愛橋,真愛橋到底 ichange

2 0歲出道,迅速紅遍全球,成為辣妹代言人;

23歲與未來的丈夫一見鍾情,從此再也沒有分開;

 


 

25歲,她和他的第一個寶寶出生,後來又陸續有三個小天使到來,個個都是顏值驚人。

 


 

34歲,她推出了個人品牌Vicotoria Beckham,並舉辦了首場時裝秀,從此化身時尚女王……

 

這大概就是人們常說的人生贏家吧。

 


但其實,她也曾是只醜小鴨。

 

假如現在的“ 女王”可以和那時的“醜小鴨”通信,她會在信中會寫些什麼呢?

近日,維多利亞接受Vogue雜誌的邀請,成為了10月的封面女郎;

在這期雜誌上一同發表的還有她寫給18歲自己的信。
The full letter will be in the October issue of Vogue.
And the letter that the designer has written to herself entitled, “What I wish I'd known”.

這封信寫給18歲時還不那麼自信,還沒遇到愛情,還沒如此強大的自己。

 

對年輕又徬徨的自己,她寫到:

 

I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts college. 
我知道你現在很掙扎。你不是學校裡最漂亮、最瘦、跳舞最好的女孩兒。

You have never properly fitted in, although you are sharing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. 
儘管你和一些特別好的女孩兒一起住在薩里大學的房子裡,但你從來沒有真正的融入。

You have bad acne. You think the Principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliatingly bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front. (This may or may not be true.)
你的痘痘非常嚴重。你認為校長把你安排到年末演出的最後一排是因為你太胖了不適合站在前面。
(還穿了讓人丟臉的亮紫色緊身衣)

談到愛情,她這樣說:

 

Learn more about football, especially the offside rule.
多學點足球知識,特別是越位的規則。

And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players' lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy. 
而且,是的,一見鍾情是存在的。你的一見鍾情會發生在曼聯球員的休息室裡——儘管你會有點微醺,記不清具體的細節。

While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. 
當其他球員和自己的女伴一起吧台喝東西時,你將會看到大衛和他的家人站在一起。
(He's not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile.
(他現在還沒有進到首發陣容-——相比而言你更加有名一點。)但是他有如此迷人可愛的微笑。

 You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you.
你也和自己的家人呆在一起,所以你會想此時你倆的感受是多麼相像。

He's going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)
他將會問你要電話號碼。(時至今日,他依舊珍藏著寫有你電話號碼的從倫敦飛往曼徹斯特的機票。)

 

關於自己喜歡的時尚事業,她寫到:

You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair. It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. 
你會非常喜歡各種各樣的衣服——PVC的貓女裝;寫著各種荒謬事情的chocker; 怪異的金色頭髮。你從沒想過,其實這些東西讓你看上去很無語可笑。你去參加頒獎典禮的裝扮會看上去像是變裝皇后。

But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another.
但我回頭看你不禁微笑。這些經歷會讓你從一個極端到另一個極端的生活更加有趣。

 I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself. Fashion will take on added stature one day, but try not to be stifled by it. 
我喜歡你能夠自由的表達自己。有一天,時尚會影響藝人的聲望,但盡量不要為時尚所累。

You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, minidresses for crisp white shirts.
隨著你的成長,你會不斷的學習,用高跟鞋換掉Stan Smith球鞋。白襯衫換掉迷你裙。

And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed.
但你永遠不會起床後不打扮就出門。

假如今天的你也有機會和年少的自己通信,你會說些什麼呢?
