A Tribute to Victoria Beckham's Signature Pose

Happy 40th birthday, Victoria Beckham!

Today, April 17, is Victoria Beckham's 40th birthday! So in order to celebrate, we thought we'd pay tribute to the designer and former Spice Girl's signature pose. 

She's come a long way since the days of the Posh point -- and even her perma-pout has given way to the occasional smile -- but she has settled on one pose: Left leg extended forward, right leg back, arms by her sides, back arched and chin pointed down.

In other words, the one you see above -- 40 times over.

Though versions of the pose appeared as early as 2008, it wasn't until 2011 that Beckham apparently became incapable of standing in any other position. Past iterations included the right-hand-on-hip, as well as left-arm-casually-caressing-an-ear (see below) -- though those were soon dropped in favor of the more streamlined backwards-lean.

Whether she's taking on a red carpet by her lonesome, or being paired up with Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, her old bandmates or husband David,  VB always manages to pop her pose and steal the shot. So happy birthday, Victoria. May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind always be at your back, and may the camera crews always be stationed in such a way that they never capture photographic evidence of the right side of your body.
