We’ll keep this quick and relatively painless since we are probably all thinking the same thing.
Although it seems David’s relying on corduroy to nurse him back to health, we’d still take we’d take his questionable lounge-wear over any style-off opponent. Including his impressively polished wife, Victoria.
Unfortunately this was the only photo of David we could muster, outside of his knits-porn. There are plenty of Mrs. Beckham roaming the mean streets of Manhattan, though. With the help of a personal umbrella carrier and empty-basket grocery shopping assistant, of course.
You may have noticed we’ve been a little man-flesh heavy recently. While this isn’t necessarily a problem, an overdose of anything is bad for one’s health so we rather generously thought we would refresh your palates with some WAG goss.
Above, you will see Abbey Clancy shopping. For discount carpet. This is odd, but we’re prepared to overlook it on the grounds that it’s a relief to see a WAG doing something she is meant to be doing. Lately we have noticed an unnerving trend of WAG’s expending effort. Like real, proper effort. Marathon running, water skiing, competitive ballroom dancing. All worthy pursuits, we’re sure, but we hadn’t exactly factored this into our life plan. We were working the ‘get the man, get the car, get the house, get the ring, get all the handbags in the fugging world’ angle. Now we have to learn running too?
So far, the Lakers’ 2010 post-season campaign has seen DBeck’s love for beverages and plaid. In fact, he’s now so well-adjusted in America that he has quite a collection of colourful and patterned button-downs to show for his “dual” citizenship. We might even go out on a limb and say David passes for the average basketball fan. With a stellar side-eye stare/sneer to boot as well.
Personally, we aren’t into David’s two most recent plaid looks. However, we’ve come to discover that any time a member of the Beckham brood attends a game in this print, the Lakers prevail.
In honour of Victoria Beckham’s 36th birthday last Saturday, American mag People has compiled a slide show of Victoria’s funniest and most memorable quotes.
Love her or “meh” her, you can’t deny that VB knows how to bring the LOLz. One of our personal favorites (followed closely behind by the one discussing the David’s tractor pipe) has got to be this one:
“They always say, ‘My God David is so handsome, he’s gorgeous, he’s so good looking, and she’s so funny.’ Basically that means you’re a pig with a sense of humor.”
Even though her former Spice Girl bandmate Geri Haliwell once likened Vicky B. to Marmite, to us, she’s much more than a yeasty bread-spread.
Footballers are not usually known for sartorial elegance and stirring clothing choices (see our stunted style contenders for some true fash disasters ), but every now and then we come across a baller who truly kicks it in the style stakes. A man who knows his colour combos, and who knows when to reject stonewash denim and quilted jackets. (Hint: Always).
So, for both your judgment and delectation, here are our picks for the six best dressed men in football:
