    I don't know LK, waist suppression does not a good fit make. The shoulders look ridiculous on that jacket.

    Yes, on second look, the shoulders do appear large.

    Well he certainly has the money for bespoke. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they wear a lot of their clothes once and toss them because they live in this magic fashion bubble where you have to look different every day of your life.

    ^^ Looks like Alexander McQueen S/S 07. It might be MTM McQueen, but it's definitely from that season. Edit: [​IMG] Collar issues aside, McQueen is awesome. That is all.

    To pull out an old chestnut, they don't wear the clothes, the clothes wear them. Everything is just to affected.

    Victoria often looks very good. Beckham, on the other hand.... That DB tux was horrible. I'm guessing it's Armani by the pants.

    I have read some criticism about Victoria that she tries to look like Audrey Hepburn, but rather makes the impression of a pseudo-style icon.
    The only interesting thing about her is how long she had to wait for her Hermès bags...
    Almost all of the people from showbiz who can be seen as genuine and inspirational style icons have passed away by now.

    Well spotted. IMO the suit looks bad on him, but that's partly because the jacket is hanging open.

    Are you serious? You think high-profile celebrity couple will spend their own money on clothes?

    They do not wear MTM or bespoke. They don't even know what these words mean. They have a number of clothing designers competing among each other on who is going to dress them to this or that public appearance. Such is the case with every celebrity. They get their clothes for free and often require payments for wearing a particular designer.

    So it is completely futile to try to judge Beckhams clothing style as they have none. Their agent decides what they going to wear, not their stylist.

    The model wears the suit much better.

    As someone who worked in entertainment marketing for a large apparel maker, I can certainly attest that this is true (you wouldn't believe the sheer volume of free designer stuff celebrities receive on a daily basis). However, in the case of the Beckhams, this isn't 100% true. Victoria is actually pretty renowned (maybe not 'renowned' but at least 'known') for her personal fashion sense and is often very involved in designing, etc. garments she/Beckham wears.

    On a side note, Dolce & Gabbana has a mannequin in DB's exact measurements on which they make tailored clothing for him.......this is, of course, entirely free of charge.

    If Victoria wanted to look like Audrey, she shouldn't have gotten such a second-rate boob job.

    Yes I am and you are wrong. Beckham does design some of his own clothes and has input into what the England football team wore when Captain.

    Doubtless he gets some freebies but far from all, so the original question stands.

    With all the money those two have, there is simply no excuse not to dress well.

    Their excuse is that they generally lack good taste in clothing and at least one of them gets HORRIBLE plastic surgury.
