Victoria Beckham rarely smiles, but she actually has a sense of humor about it. The fashion designer was photographed arriving at L.A.X. airport on Tuesday wearing a graphic T-shirt of her own design that read: “Fashion Stole My Smile.” She paired it with oversize sunglasses, wide-legged pants, and a stone-cold expression. It’s just one of the stylish airport ensembles we’ve seen this week.
Luckily for all the very serious fashion people out there, Beckham’s limited-edition tee is available in black and white for £95, exclusively on her website and Dover St. boutique in London.
In August 2013, Beckham gave a more reasonable explanation to T Magazine on why she really doesn’t smile in public. “I smile in family pictures,” she said. “When you're in a position to be paparazzi-ed just walking down the street, you'd look a little daft if you were smiling all the time.”
Her cheeky T-shirt isn’t the first time she’s thrown the blame on fashion, though. When asked why she never smiles during Vogue’s “73 Questions” in January 2015, she wryly responded, “I'm smiling on the inside. I feel that I have a responsibility to the fashion community.” Two years later and she still takes that responsibility very, very seriously.
