Victoria Beckham says French people are “so chic” she sometimes feels like she is from the country.

The singer-turned-designer features in the pages of French Elle magazine alongside legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld. The pair are posing at the former home of Coco Chanel, with Victoria gushing about how much the experience meant to her.

“I'm honoured to be here in Paris. I love Paris and the French style, so chic. Sometimes I feel a little bit French myself!” she said.

The star shot the images earlier this year, when she updated her Twitter fans on how much fun she was having.

She is seen standing on some stairs next to Karl, with her hair in a demure chignon. She is wearing a black cape and the tiniest of briefs, with her long legs on display. A pair of high shoe boots finish the look.

In another she is seen in the same shorts, this time with a white shift tucked into them. She is wearing eyeglasses – perhaps from her upcoming range – and appears deep in thought.

“I am thrilled to shoot with Karl. I have so much respect for him and I find him so inspiring,” Victoria said.

“To shoot in Coco Chanel's apartment in the clothes of the house of Chanel is really a dream come true.”

Karl is the current creative director of Chanel and is known for his acid-tongue. It seems he has been charmed by Victoria, as he only had kind words for her.

“Victoria has an innate sense of style. She knows what she likes, and knows what is good for her,” he said.
