Kaka, Becks, Maldini: A Study in Skincare

Let’s check out some of the AC Milan cuties from the friendly yesterday against Hamburg SV in Dubai. We think this photo acts somewhat as a lesson in sunscreen application and antioxidant ingestion.
Kaka – smooth, buttery soft skin with the plumped out texture of youth. Kinda reminds us of the Louis Vuitton satin-silk clutch we were coveting yet not owning at parties over the holidays.
Beckham - road-weary, showing signs of wear, but with a strong foundation. He’s like a lambskin Balenciaga that’s been used to carry heavy groceries and champagne bottles a few too many times and could use a break.
Maldini – A super tanned, yet surprisingly resilient skin surface. Mere minutes though, before he heads into the dried meat and chewy category. He’s the shredded and torn old school Gucci crocodile washbag your father (or grandfather) insists on carrying his shaving kit in.
Who do you think looks the best of the bunch? Our vote, as always, goes to Sir Becks.
We’re off to drink a pint of green tea.
