The corners of Victoria Beckham‘s lips were indisputably turned up when she arrived in Toyko to promote her new cosmetic line. And she actually gave a little wavey-poo to photogs, as opposed to her usual stone-faced refusal to acknowledge their presence.

Admittedly, this is not a big toothy grin. I had the photo examined by several expression experts (OK, a few friends) and they concurred that this is more of a sly smirk than a full-on flash of porcelain veneers.

This is truly a historic and, dare I say, an emotional moment for Posh-Watchers everywhere. And despite speculation from Posh-Bashers, I am not convinced that her well-timed Mona Lisa smile is because she wants to make a mint on her makeup in the Asian market.

But the sudden smile is suspicious. Not one smile the whole time she’s in Happyville, Los Angeles? Then she hops off a plane in Toyko and gets all giddy and girly? But don’t forget that Buddha also has a sly, enlightened smile. Maybe that’s where Victoria got the idea.
