I'm not a fashiony girl at all, says Victoria Pendleton

Since wowing the world on the Olympic track and dazzling on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' dance floor, Victoria Pendleton's career shows no sign of abating.

Not only has she fronted million-pound campaigns and written a bestselling autobiography, but she has also ditched her Lycra leggings and firmly established herself on the fashion scene with designers bending over backwards for her to wear their designs and grace the front rows of their shows.

The 32-year-old does, however, maintain that she isn't a "fashion girl" at all, even though she wishes she was.

"I'm not a fashiony girl at all really. I wish I was, I'd like to be. I like reading fashion magazines and I've gone to a couple of fashion shows but that's as far as my whole fashion knowledge and experience goes," she told the Daily Mail.

While she may not consider herself a fashionista yet, she is certainly doing a good job of brushing up on her knowledge from the front row of many prestigious shows.

She said that she really likes Stella McCartney, as she did such a great job at the Olympics and has been very helpful during her events.

She also said that she's a big fan of Paul Smith and he's a big cycling fan. He leaves her voice messages when she goes to competitions to wish her luck and to congratulate her, she said.

Talking about her personal style she said she doesn't know if it sounds quite masculine and androgynous but she does like brogues and buttoned up shirts, as she feels very comfortable dressed like that.

"I'd like to wear lots of girly things but I never feel like it's me so I probably dress a little bit more practically," she added. (ANI)
