In its video series “73 Questions,”Vogue addressed the whole no-smiling-in-public thing and asked VB what’s it really about.

[Editor’s note: We’ve met Beckham on more than a few occasions and she’s actually super lovely and hilarious, so as far as we’re concerned her public persona of not smiling is pretty far from what she’s actually like].

Her answer: “I’m smiling on the inside, I feel like I have a responsibility to the fashion community.” So there you have it: While Kim Kardashian doesn’t laugh because it causes wrinkles, Beckham doesn’t smile apparently because she thinks it’s the fashionable thing to do. Case closed.
