Victoria Beckham on Allure's March cover.

Allure is treating itself to a pretty posh birthday present: Victoria Beckham.

The designer stars on the magazine’s March cover, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary Issue.

After going soft and relaxed for February’s British Vogue, the expectant mother gives photographer Michael Thompson a more smoldering look in a backless, chocolate-hued, one-shoulder dress from her eponymous label paired with a messy low ponytail and strong eyebrows.

Inside, Beckham fittingly plays a "soccer mom on the edge" in a fashion shoot that sees her cheering on her Little Leaguer and checking the mail with an armful of groceries (and a ridiculously chic trench coat, of course).

Woman on the verge. Beckham plays a soccer mom in Allure.

The star also opens up to the magazine about her fashion success ("I was so proud, I rang my mum," she says of the moment Oprah Winfrey wore one of her dresses), fitness secrets (she runs four miles a day on the treadmill and lifts weights), and her outlook on aging gracefully.

"For the first time, I feel like what you see is what you get," says the New York Fashion Week standout.

"This is me: the more natural hair, the slightly more relaxed way of dressing. I feel really content personally and professionally. I’m not freaked out about getting older. I’m growing older with the most amazing man I’ve ever met—with my soul mate. Life’s great.”

Indeed, Beckham credits her growing family for boosting her self-esteem.

"My husband makes me feel beautiful, my kids make me feel beautiful," she says. "It’s good being the only girl in the Beckham household."

Uh-oh—let’s hope Baby No. 4 doesn’t rock the boat too much.
