When she isn’t literally running in heels and being BFFs with the Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria Beckham is a regular ol’ human being who just happens to be one of the most successful women in the United Kingdom. She also is a notoriously serious-seeming person–a reputation she garnered back in the 90s by being deemed “Posh Spice,” AKA the Spice Girls member who never smiled as she was entirely too busy ensuring her mini-LBDs were sticking at thigh-high length.
Victoria’s smile is so elusive, in fact, that when you search the name “Victoria Beckham” on Google, one of the first suggestions of what you may be looking for is “Victoria Beckham smiling” and subsequent variations on that search. Now, there’s nothing wrong with not smiling (if anything, it’s annoying when people tell you to smile), but she’s been called straight-up ugly for her smile and that is just plain not cool. As a result, we’ve compiled a little collection of all the lovely photos we can find of Mrs. Beckham showing off her grin.
