Victoria through the Beckham lens

A rare glimpse into their marriage

It’s rare that ELLE’s March cover star, Victoria Beckham, is pictured smiling, which has given the designer an unfair label as a bit of an ice queen. But we don’t see what goes on behind closed doors – and apparently, it's a very different story.

On Sunday, David shared an intimate picture of his wife laughing on his Facebook site, captioning the image, ‘see, I told you she smiles’.

And, after years of criticism about her pouting photo-face, Victoria can still laugh about the situation. Joking in an interview recently, she said, ‘everyone thinks I’m going to be such a cow – I get it because I think the same when I see the pictures’.


This weekend, former ELLE cover star Victoria jetted to Beijing to join her husband on a promotional tour and to appear on China Central Television. While working away from home, Victoria has taken to her own Twitter and Instagram to post pictures of her trip with David, and it definitely looks like she’s enjoying herself.

Her own Twitter diary of her time in the East included a picture of her son Romeo’s Burberry campaign captioned, ‘look who I saw at Beijing airport! Proud mummy’, and one poking fun at David ‘looking like Kevin Costner from the Bodyguard’. Not so stern after all.
