The former Spice Girl, who posed in a black polka dot bra and thong and black high heels for her intimate Emporio Armani underwear shoot, reportedly asked photographers to draw the focus away from her rear.
A source told Britain’s Daily Express newspaper: “Victoria’s butt is a no-go area. She made it clear to those working on the shoot that her bottom is not to be highlighted.” Victoria - who has three sons with her soccer star husband David Beckham - is believed to be equally shy about stretch marks on her stomach and a scar from giving birth to Cruz by caesarean in 2005.
These marks were concealed with make-up and strategic lighting for the smouldering black-and-white shots. The source continued: “She also joked that only husband David and her know what her stomach is really like, with its stretch marks… and she plans to keep it that way!”
Victoria has followed in her husband’s footsteps in posing for Italian fashion label Emporio Armani. The 34-year-old star reportedly hates stripping off for the camera, but couldn't refuse the £12 million deal.
