Victoria Beckham flashes a rare smile as she heads home from swanky lunch date – but hungry husband David has to stock up on takeaway sandwiches after dainty Michelin star meal
She famously has a strict diet of grilled fish, vegetables and coconut water.
Yet Victoria Beckham treated herself to a meal out on Thursday as she dined at swanky Dorian restaurant in London’s Notting Hill.
The Spice Girls star, 49, looked in good spirits as she left the Michelin star eatery with a rare smile.
Looking effortlessly chic for the outing, the mother-of-four modelled an £1800 leather jacket from her own clothing collection.
She teamed the garment with flared trousers that skimmed over a pair of stilettos and accessorised with a black clutch bag and shades.
Victoria was seen strutting out of the restaurant on her own as husband David still seemed to be feeling rather peckish.

Feeling full: She famously has a strict diet of grilled fish, vegetables and coconut water yet Victoria Beckham treated herself to a meal at swanky Dorian restaurant in Notting Hill
The former footballer, 48, couldn’t resist stopping off at Secret Sandwich Shop next door and stocking up on a few treats to take back home to their Holland Park abode.
He was casually clad for the outing, teaming a plain white T-shirt that showed off his various inkings with grey trousers.
While the pair are currently believed to be staying in their London property it seems their Cotswolds home is set for disruption after a neighbour won planning permission to build a house on the land next to theirs.
Builders will have three years to construct the property, which boasts a swimming pool and tennis court.
A local told The Sun: David and Victoria’s home is pretty remote, and for a while now they’ve been able to enjoy the sweet silence of the countryside.
‘But their peace and quiet will soon be tinged with the whirring of heavy machinery.
‘They’ve had a fair bit of work done themselves over the years but now the tables have turned.’
MailOnline has contacted the Beckhams’ representative for comment.

Victoria and David recently lifted the lid on their first attraction to one another in the Beckham Netflix documentary.
The pair met at a charity football match in 1997 and melted viewers’ hearts as they gave an insight into that first meeting and what they thought of each other.
Showing off her relaxed side while sitting on a sofa, Victoria said: ‘The fact I went to the games really was to – some might say I stalked him, I would say see him.’
Victoria admitted that when she saw David after a match by the bar in the Manchester United players’ lounge, he caught her eye because he was with his parents and clearly a family man.
She said: ‘When I saw him in the footballers’ lounge, all the other footballers were at the bar, and he was standing and talking to his parents, and I’m very close to my family, and I loved that side to him.’
Giving his side of the story, David simply said of their first meeting: ‘I just fancied her.’
While Victoria gushed: ‘I just fancied him, it was as simple as that.’
It proved to be love at first sight for the couple, who went on to tie the knot at a castle outside Dublin just two years later in 1999.
Excited: David flashed a broad grin as he made his sandwich order
Low-key look: He was casually clad for the outing, teaming a plain white T-shirt that showed off his various inkings with grey trousers
Good to go: David was sure to carefully load his sandwiches into the car before heading off
They now share four children – sons Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and a daughter Harper, 12 – and are as loved up as ever after 24 years of marriage.
However, their romance wasn’t always plain-sailing as David’s mother Sandra told how she feared her son would ‘lose everything’ when he started dating Victoria.
Sandra confessed she was worried David would get side-tracked from his career at Manchester United when Spice Girl Victoria came onto the scene.
She said: ‘We’d were worried he would lose everything he worked for because football had always come first and then all of a sudden it wasn’t.’
David and Victoria became a brand where they gained lucrative contracts with clothing designers, health and fitness specialists, fashion magazines, and perfume and cosmetics manufacturers.
But at the start of her relationship with David, Victoria admitted she was told by her manager at the time to ‘keep it under wraps’, explaining: ‘We would meet in car parks and that’s not as seedy as it sounds.’
And David appears to have a conflicting opinion to his former Man United manager Alex Ferguson, as he said of how his fame catapulted due to the interest into his relationship with Victoria: ‘It definitely didn’t change me.’
Yet Alex, 81, insisted: ‘Well he changed. There’s no doubt about that.’
