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.

    Love the descriptions of skin through handbags. I don't fancy either Kaka or Maldini so Becks gets my vote.

    Gotta Be Becks..

    Usually it’s Kaka, but in here I have to choose Becks. Hopefully it’s just a bad angle for Kaka :/

  7. Jo says:

    Isn’t Maldini’s colour a natural phenomenon rather than a product of dedicated tanning?  I’m glad that Becks has passed the grizzled beard phase.

    i think becks looks awful. none of them really look good. i think kaka gained some baby weight…adorable but not attractive

  9. Rebecca says:

    Has our dear Kaka gained some weight during Christmas? I think he had just a little bit too much of that pudding.

    It's becks for me although he does seemed to have aged 10 years in the last year

  11. Helle (Footiegirl) says:

    It can just never be anyone but Becks… He still got it!

  12. Dreamgirl says:

    How do we determine what a real man looks like? I would imagine opinions will vary widely.

  13. GO says:

    I'm probably the only one, but KAKA for me.don't care how young or weird he looks in this pic.

  14. Becca says:

    Becks Gets My vote Too ;)

  15. TammyV says:

    Maldini.. he looks like a real man. He has real man skin and that adoribly goofy nose that I live so much Kaka as always looks like the fairey prince of Disney lore and my hate of Becks is boiling over at this point

  16. Boston Red says:

    Becks. Kaka looks like a 15 year-old boy with that haircut and Maldini is just gross to me.

    Becks. Anytime. Anywhere.

    Don't make me choose. Seriously… Kaka? Becks? Maldini? I can't. Its an insult to all of them.On another note… Kaka cut his hair. I could cry.

  20. HiL says:

    never liked Kaka or Maldini. Kaka looks a bit weird in this pic and Maldini is way to tanned:P guess i’ll have to go with Becks (even though he’s mainstream:P)

  21. 'TorresNubianQueen' says:

    defo senior becks is the hottest, becks gets hotter as he ages, maldini’s skin looks awfully leatherly lol, and it looks like kaka has gained a few pounds on his face ;-)

  22. mrscudicini says:

    Becks every single time. Forever and always.

  23. Dreamgirl says:

    I’m going for Becks here. I’m not a Maldidni fan and this is not a very flattering pic of Kaka.

  24. lose that girl says:

    Hate to be predictable but I’m going with Becks. Kaka’s smooth as a baby’s arse face will be short lived. Maldini sports that on the edge of leathery look that I despise. SUN BLOCK, people! Geez! Get with the program. Becks is in the middle of the two. Mature, real, lovely.
