David Beckham and Bella Hadid look super-awkward as they cosy up at Dior show

David Beckham and Bella Hadid looked especially awkward as they posed together for pictures at the Dior Homme show in Japan today.

The friends appeared stiff and formal as they cosied up on the front row in Tokyo.

Their awkward stance comes six months after they were caught on camera laughing uproariously together at a Paris St Germain football match.

The picture sparked rumours about how close they were – which may well be why, this time around, they kept their distance from each other.

Here, body language expert Judi James points out the subtle gestures that tell quite the story…

Sit the guy who could give David Gandy a run for his money in terms of camera-confidence next to a world super-model and Becks suddenly turns into a man made hewn out of MDF.

Here, David is woodenly trying to ignore and avoid Bella even though the pair appear to be occupying a space designed more for one slim bum-cheek at the Dior show.

David’s pose here suggests he isn’t even aware he’s sitting next to a fashion superstar, with his eyes facing fixedly front and a facial expression that gives the impression he’s not even breathing in in case he inhales Bella’s perfume.

His left hand is placed rigidly and awkwardly on his own thigh while his right arm is extended and then curved round as though forming a safety barrier between them.

Oddly (although the whole pose looks odd) the angle of his arm makes it look as though he’s quietly battling for elbow space on a chair arm. Even odder, Bella is doing her best to self-diminish here rather than making any attempts to invade David’s space. Her legs are squashed together and her arms crossed tight over her torso.

In this picture, you can just hear the conversation back at the Beckhams as Victoria asks David who he sat with and he pretends he didn’t know Bella was there, because that’s the look he’s going for here with his body language.

The pair have been forced into such close proximity in the front row that when Bella turns her face towards David to talk to someone behind him, it should be impossible for him to not turn round to look, but David’s eyes remain fixedly front-facing here.

At one point the pair even start to mirror one another with their body positions, although the ‘ignore’ look is still in place, with both facing front wearing frozen facial expressions.

In stark contrast is when David poses alone on the red carpet in front of the Dior logo.

Clearly enjoying his own man-space, David sports his signature body language look of the suave ex-sports pro, cool and relaxed and with one hand in his pocket to add a debonair touch as he aims his smoldering stare and cheeky part-smile straight down the lenses of the cameras.
