15 times Victoria Beckham shocked fans with her real smile

There's no pout quite like the Posh pout...

Victoria Beckham is renowned for her 'no smiling' rule and her perfected signature pout - but she has been spotted sporting a toothy grin on a select few occasions. In 2019, the fashion designer revealed that she had her "armour" on by not smiling for the cameras – but that she had softened her rules over the years.

"I want to be honest. In the past, I've probably hidden behind my armour – the not smiling publicly, for instance. There's less of that now," she told Glamour. And while there are plenty of shots of Victoria showing off her pearly whites during her Spice Girls years, it's still rare to catch VB cracking a smile in public these days – despite the fact that she's known for her fabulously wicked sense of humour.
