Dressed in nude stockings and suspenders and reclining on a diving board looking every inch the Hollywood star, it's hard to imagine Victoria Beckham has any hang-ups at all.
The former Spice Girl has a hint of Audrey Hepburn about her in the photoshoot, taken for Elle magazine's subscriber cover in the U.S.
But the 35-year-old has revealed that she is insecure and that her shyness is the reason for her near-constant pout.
She said: 'I do have my insecurities. Maybe that is why I look a little bit serious.
'The kind of person who's going to stand on the red carpet and love the attention and have the big grin - I'm just not like that.
'I want to get in there, do what I've got to do, and get home to my kids.'
