Renowned for her strict 'no smiling' rule, Victoria Beckham has perfected her Posh Spice pout and serious face over the years. However, the star hasn't been able to resist flashing a toothy grin at times – and we love seeing her real joy shine through.
Back in 2019, the Spice Girls star-turned-fashion designer revealed to Glamour that she had her "armour" on by not smiling for the cameras. She even once told Vogue that she has a responsibility to the fashion community to refrain from smiling! And while there are plenty of shots of Victoria showing off her pearly whites in her Girl Power era, 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.
Mrs. Beckham certainly knows how to poke fun at herself and her stoic pout – even designing a slogan T-shirt that read "fashion stole my smile" back in 2017. Grin or no grin, Victoria is still an icon. Keep scrolling to discover the rare occasions we caught the Wannabe singer smiling...
