Victoria Beckham may soon have a new position to add to her resume - interior designer.
The former Spice Girl has been asked by Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, to design a new luxury hotel, the Mirror reports.
Proponents of the hotel, which will be built on the fashion-themed Isla Moda island off the coast of the city, have offered the style icon $25 million to lend her interior design insight to the project.
Should she accept the generous proposal, Posh - who has her own fashion collection and three children - would work with fashion designer Karl Lagerfield and have a very hands-on role in the hotel''s development.
She was asked to associate her name with the facility and offer her opinions on room design, wardrobes and furnishings, according to the media outlet.
Beckham and her husband, soccer star David Beckham, met the sheik last year on a vacation to the Gulf and have kept in contact via email for the past year, the news source suggests. She has not yet responded to his offer.
Despite recent reports that the couple was considering a move back to the U.K., Beckham plans to stay in the U.S. to focus on her fashion line and raising her sons, the Daily Mail reports.
