Sixth time's a charm?

With the February issue of British Vogue, Victoria Beckham has landed her sixth solo Vogue cover, this time posing for lensman Alasdair McLellan.

Clad in a pastel Stella McCartney sweater, the designer swaps her typically glammed-up, Birkin-toting image for a softer and more relaxed look that seems to suit her "happy, smiley" attitude.

“I’m a positive person," the mother of three insists.

"I always look at my miserable face and think why didn’t I just smile… Because I’m quite a happy, smiley person.

"But when I see the paparazzi, I freeze. Maybe that’s my safety wall after all the years of crap. Still, at least the bag looks fabulous.”

Inside, Beckham poses in a pensive black and white shoot and reveals all about her design process.

“I don’t draw, but nor do lots of designers," she tells the magazine.

"I tie things around me, I experiment with ideas and I try to work out a way to make everything flattering and make a woman feel beautiful.”

That motto has helped her earn fans like Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah Winfrey, but despite her thriving fashion career, family is never far from Beckham's mind.

"Maybe one day another baby, but at this stage I think the chances of a girl are quite slim," she says.

That's fine. We'll happily settle for another Romeo -- the eight-year-old was just named to British GQ's Best-Dressed List!
