The former Spice Girl, whose band were famous for their "girl power" slogan, has posed for the cover of Elle magazine in Singapore.

She told the mag: "I want to make a woman feel her best. I want to empower women."

And she added that she was 100 per cent involved in her business, the Daily Mirror reported, saying: "My name is on the label, I have a point of view. And it's important that it comes from me. I don't want to hand that over to anybody else. I wouldn't know how to..."

The mum-of-four, 40, who appears on the cover of Elle wearing a tan trench coat, added that she never worries about the prospect of her business failing.

"I'm not afraid. I think you can learn from everything. I don't ever think of the negatives, I think of the positives. I'm not competing with anybody else out there; I'm just competing with myself," she said.

"I think if you're too afraid of failure then you won't challenge yourself, then you won't move forward. I like to challenge myself."

She said of her personality: "People are probably surprised that I have a sense of humour. I like to take the mickey out of myself. As much as I take what I do very seriously, I also want to have fun.

"I like to poke fun at myself... And I think that surprises people."

The full interview appears in Elle Singapore's July 2014 issue.
