When Victoria Beckham sees a magpie, she must salute it. When a ladder is in her way, she must avoid walking beneath it. And when she's putting on one of her many fashion shows, she utilizes crystals behind the scenes—specifically Pink Quartz and Black Tourmaline. "If I told you my backstage rituals, and was honest you would think I was a little weird," she said. "I carry my crystals with me which some people might think as odd but it works for us."

This information comes courtesy of the Daily Mail, which explains that Beckham's superstitions also extend to staying in the same hotel every time she visits New York. Whatever she's doing, it seems to be working.
