Victoria Beckham will design the interior of the Range Rover Evoque, as she takes up a new role as creative design executive with Land Rover.
The new Range Rover 'coupe' was unveiled at Kensington Palace last night, where it was also announced that Mrs Beckham will work on designs for a special edition of the Evoque.
She described the new Range Rover as 'absolutely stunning' and that the opportunity to collaborate on the design was 'an incredible opportunity'.
The smaller, sleeker Range Rover Evoque was unveiled by TV presenter George Lamb at a star-studded launch attended by 300 guests including model Erin O'Connor and presenter Gabby Logan, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and Zara Phillips.
Land Rover and Range Rover design director Gerry McGovern said of Victoria Beckham: 'She knows a lot about fashion and a lot about trends, a lot about luxury products.
'I believe this appointment adds a new dimension to my design team as we continue to design products to appeal to a wider audience.'
The Land Rover Evoque will get its public debut at the Paris motor show on September 30.
