This Is The Real Reason Why Victoria Beckham Always Wears Sunglasses

And no, it's not merely to hide from the paps...

Known simply as 'Posh' back in the nineties, the Spice Girl-turned-designer was renowned for her bug-eye sunnies and the ‘pob’.

And even in 2017, with a fashion empire behind her name, the 42-year-old is snapped wherever she goes. But note, she's very rarely seen without aviators perched on the bridge of her nose.

Yet it turns out, there’s a reason behind her supersized collection of frames.

The designer met with fashion editor Divia Harilela at the Victoria Beckham store in Hong Kong to discuss her latest sunglasses line. And the 43-year-old revealed the real reason behind her now-famous aesthetic.

"I wear sunglasses because like most mums, I am up all night with my children," she admitted in a Facebook Live, The Mirror reports. "They hide a multitude of sins."

But Victoria couldn't be happier. She continued: “My family are everything to me. I would do absolutely everything for them. We FaceTime when I’m away I don’t know how many times a day. And David travels a lot as well, for his work. But one of us is always at home with the children. We are very rarely both away."

On the topic of her newly launched sunglasses line Victoria continued: "I love women. I love to empower women. I think sunglasses are the final touch to a woman's outfit.”

We may have to bag ourselves a pair, sharpish.
