Victoria Beckham has returned to Los Angeles and was quick to make her arrival known by posting a welcome snap of her smiling on Twitter.
The hugely successful fashionista, who is known for her meticulous style and serious reputation, delighted fans when she shared a photograph of herself clearly in high spirits.
Victoria, who is happily married to legendary footballer David Beckham, is pictured striking a pose in front of the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles. She is seen holding her hands up in the air and on this rare occasion, smiling in public.
"So good to be back in LA, and hiking, who knew? X vb," posted Victoria alongside the photograph.
The mother-of-four dressed casually for the outdoor activity and was clearly enjoying the sun, opting for a navy blue sleeveless top and shorts ensemble.
Unusually for the former Spice Girl, who is known for wearing skyscraper high heels, Victoria surprised fans further by wearing flat shoes.
The rare combination of her smiling and donning flats prompted light-hearted comments from her fans on Twitter, with one saying, "@victoriabeckham looking amazing as usual! did you crop out the flats on purpose? hahaha :) x."
It seems the fashion-conscious mother was not the only one in the Beckham clan who missed life stateside. Victoria shared a photograph of the family dog Coco sporting an LA Lakers basketball jersey, who also seems to be grinning at the camera.
"Coco Beckham LOVES the LA Lakers! X vb," said the caption.
While Victoria often keeps a straight face in public, David has often poked fun at his wife's serious reputation. He snapped a photo of her in June, lying down and laughing, alongside the caption, "See I told you she smiles".
