David Beckham likes seeing wife Victoria in hold-up stockings and high heels.

The couple - who have children Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 28, and 12-year-old Harper - have been married for 24 years but still enjoy regular date nights and while the 49-year-old star insisted she doesn't dress to "seduce" her spouse, she always thinks about what he likes to see her in.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I wouldn’t say I dress to please David when we go out.

"I definitely don’t dress to seduce. But I will take into consideration what he likes.”

Noting these days that is a tuxedo or a dress with a jacket over her shoulders, but always heels, she added: “Hold-ups always work too."

The former Spice Girls singer credits "communication" for keeping her family close and the fact they appreciate that having other commitments means they don't get to spend as much quality time together as they used to so cherish the time that they do get.

She said: “I think the secret to a happy family is probably communication.

“Respecting each other and their ambitions. Both me and David are very ambitious, as are our children in their different ways.

"You also have to be realistic. Sometimes work or other things (does she mean in-laws?) mean you can’t always go on holiday together as a family. That’s why it’s important to appreciate the family time you do have.”

While Victoria will celebrate her milestone 50th birthday in April, she insisted it doesn't bother her.

She said: “Honestly, I’m not obsessed with looking young.”

The fashion designer is releasing a new fragrance collection named after places of significance, with Suite 302 a nod to her and David's regular trips to Paris in the 1990s.

She recalled: “We would either stay at the Hotel Costes or the Ritz.

"I can still remember the feel of everything. The heavy burgundy curtains, how dark it was in the Costes, how we’d come out of the hotel and there would always be paparazzi in the street.

"I was wearing lots of Dolce and Gabbana, all the big hair… it was very sexy.”

Portofino '97 refers to holidays in Italy and San Ysidro Drive is named after the road in Beverly Hills the family used to live on.

She said of the latter: “It reminds me of Malibu and hiking and surfing with the kids. The life we had there.”
