Victoria Beckham has returned to Instagram for the first time since her 46th birthday celebrations last weekend.
The fashion designer posted a selection of catwalk photos on her feed from her spring/summer 2020 catwalk show, as well as a family photo.
Victoria's return comes after last weekend when the joy of her special occasion was marred with backlash after it was reported she had furloughed some of her staff at her VB fashion label.
The system allows businesses to use government funding to pay the salaries of their employees during lockdown, but Victoria, whose family are reportedly worth a whopping £335million, faced heavy criticism.
Ignoring the furore surrounding her, Victoria posted two pictures on her Instagram feed of two different models wearing a yellow dress from her collection.
Victoria wrote in the caption alongside a sun emoji: "It's a sunny Sunday."

The former Spice Girl has been spending lockdown at her home in the Cotswolds with her husband David Beckham, and children Romeo, Cruz and Harper, while Brooklyn remains in the US with his girlfriend Nicola Ann Peltz.
She also took to her Instagram Stories to mention how much she was missing her sister Louise, as well as other family and friends.
The mum-of-four wrote alongside a snap from a night out with her husband and a yellow love heart emoji: "Looking forward to when we can all be with friends and family again."
A rep for Posh Spice confirmed last week that some staff at her fashion brand would be placed on furlough for two months “so far”.
It’s understood that staff from her fashion label have received letters explaining they would be paid 80% of their salaries, which will be funded from the government on the furlough, according to the Mail Online.
Employees from across her company are said to have been affected including those in marketing and customer services, as well as some in her Mayfair shop, which closed amid the lockdown.
Despite reportedly topping up their wages with an “enhanced package” by paying the remaining 20 per cent to her staff, Piers Morgan joined a number of critics who slammed the millionaire, who was recently reported to have bought a £20million Malibu apartment.
Piers raged following David and Victoria's introduction of Elton John ahead of the Together at Home event last week: "Sorry, but this makes me puke. If you care this much about the NHS, @victoriabeckham – then why are you taking taxpayer money the NHS desperately needs – and you DON’T need – to furlough your staff & prop up your failing business?”
Another critic wrote on Twitter: “Victoria Beckham, who's personal handbag collection is worth £1.5m and who is valued with husband David at £335m, is billing taxpayer to furlough her 30 fashion company staff. How does she sleep at night?”
