David and Victoria Beckham show off their fun sides in rare joint appearance

David and Victoria Beckham tend to make a handful of red carpet appearances together a year, but now the star couple have stepped out together at the Global Shopping Festival in Shenzhen, China.

The duo, who have been married for 17 years and have four children together, looked to be having a whale of a time on stage at the event.

Victoria even showed off her sassy side as she donned a pair of oversized aviator shades for what appeared to be a bit of a laugh.

The Spice Girl-turned-designer cut a stylish figure in a slim-fitting mid-length black dress, while her retired footballer spouse looked suave in a classic pin-striped suit.

The two certainly added some A-list glamour to the event, which marks the world’s largest 24-hour online sale for Alibaba Group, a Chinese e-commerce company – it’s even bigger than the US-based Black Friday.

Other famous faces at the shopping launch extravaganza included basketball star Kobe Bryant and rockers One Republic.

But it was all eyes on the Beckhams, with Victoria also happily showing her fun behind-the-scenes action with her man on social media.
