'Look, I'm smiling!' Victoria Beckham shows signs of a smirk before poking fun at herself as she steps out in leggy black dress

She's known for her steely expressions and infamous serious pout with fans often complaining about her unfriendly demeanour. But Victoria Beckham has often hit back at her critics, insisting it's just the way she looks, while she's often tried to demonstrate her sense of humour. And that was certainly the case on Friday when she stepped out for a spot of shopping in New York daring to give a glimpse of a smirk.
