The 21-year-old admitted that a passer-by thought she was the former Spice Girl when she left a top London restaurant.
"I was leaving Nobu once and someone shouted, 'Oh my God, it's Victoria Beckham!' But when I turned around they realised I wasn't her," AngryApe quotes her as saying.
"I like her because she's a bit old school - she's quite Audrey Hepburn. She always looks smart and so pristine - I'd love to be like that."
Sandford, who recently topped a poll of the hottest celebrity bodies, added that Beckham is unfairly criticised for her weight.
"She's always so thin, but one week people are like, 'She's too thin', then the next week she'll be too fat. People should just get over it."
