00:39 GMT, 16 October 2012
It's rare she ever lets fans see her minus her oversized sunglasses.
And while it seems to be the celebrity accessory of choice, it appears Victoria Beckham has another reason to use her shades as a staple look.
The Spice Girls star seems to have been using her sunglasses to disguise her tired eyes as the mother-of-four took off her shades to unveil some unsightly under eye bags over the weekend.
Get some rest: Victoria Beckham finally removes her staple sunglasses to
reveal some under eye black circles as she shows up at a shop in London
Back on again: When she finally left the shop, Victoria ensured her tired eyes were covered up in her staple disguise
But it can hardly come as a surprise as she went straight from an 11-hour flight from Los Angeles to hit the shops in London.
And that's not forgetting, of course, that she has a one-year-old daughter to tend to.
Victoria flew into the city from LAX and headed straight to a WilliamVintage shop on Marylebone Street.

Disguise off: The Spice Girls star usually always wears her sunglasses

Dressed in a Prada pencil skirt and black jumper with her locks worn down and wavy, from a distance the singer-turned-fashion-designer looked to be her usual immaculate self.
But when she headed into the store, which is an appointment only shop, Victoria removed her glasses ready to peruse the outfits on offer.
And when she did so the star revealed the dark circles around her eyes.

Making her exit: Beckham looked picture perfect with her sunglasses on and her lip gloss topped up
Not letting tiredness get in the way of shopping, Beckham spent some time in the shop looking at the clothes and speaking to the workers there.
And she soon returned to her former look as she left the venue, firmly with her shades on her face covering her bags up again.
The style conscious star had perfected her lip gloss knowing she'd be snapped leaving the shop, and ensured her eyes were well hidden as she walked along holding her clutch bag.

And obviously happy with the rest of her look, Victoria took a picture of her skirt and wrote on Twitter; 'Obsessed with this Prada print x vb.'
She even gave her fans some advice after her longhaul flight: 'Travel tip,after regimen put a layer of baby oil over face.Protects skin on plane, locks in moisture.'
But she didn't offer any advice on hiding under eye circles.

Beckham has been busy of late taking care of 15-month-old daughter Harper, as well as the rest of her brood of three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
Earlier in the day she was spotted arriving in London carrying Harper as she wore the same Prada skirt.
Victoria doted on the tot, who sported a cute ponytail.
Recently, Victoria denied speculation
she was pregnant with her fifth child, although she hasn't ruled out
the possibility of expanding their family.
She told Glamour magazine earlier this year: 'I'd never say never about [having] another baby.
'It's a juggling act – a career, family, a husband who's busy. But I'd never say never!'
