Happy 40th Birthday, David!

Happy Birthday David Beckham – The World’s Most Fashionable Man

David Beckham was crowned third in Samsung’s Most Fashionable Brits poll earlier this week and now Becks has something else to celebrate – his 40th Birthday.

By the sounds of it David is set to celebrate in style, it’s thought the fashion forward football legend will be spending his special day surrounded by his nearest and dearest in, wait for it, Morocco – jel!

It’s rumoured that the Beckham clan will fly out to the luxury five-star Amanjena resort just outside of Marrakesh for a star-studded bash that will see the likes of Tom Cruise, Gordon Ramsey and Guy Richie on the guest list as well as David’s best pal, Dave Gardner.

The celebrations were never going to be a small affair and the palace-like venue is guaranteed to add a touch of wow factor to Becks’ birthday. The hotel is said to feature a 27-hole golf course, 33-metre pool and a spa which features two Turkish-style hammans – we know where we’d be hiding out for the weekend.

This won’t be the first time the Beckhams have stayed at the resort, David & Victoria renewed their wedding vows their during a romantic getaway in 2004. Aww cute!

It’s a busy time for birthdays in the Beckham household at the mo with wife Victoria celebrated turning 41 recently. The whole Beckham clan headed to LA to celebrate and tied in their visit with the launch of her collection at Barneys and the Burberry London in LA fashion show, where the whole family were sat front row, obvs.

To celebrate the iconic sportsman we’ve trawled through pics of Becks (it’s a tough job – but someone’s gotta do it) and rounded up his most iconic looks over the years.

You’re going to want to take your time on this one. Enjoy!


Becks is arguably at his hottest when he’s suited and booted, but wait, we love his drop dead gorgeous shots for his H&M underwear campagin, too. With or without the suit, we’re happy!

Becks nails the English gent style with his grandad cap and duster coat style, while his hat obsession spans to fedoras, too. Is there anything this man can’t pull off?

Yep back in the ponytail days (2003) Becks was all over the head-to-toe white look. Rewind to 1999 and Becks was finding his feet in the fashion world, sporting a white tunic (or is that a dress) with this season’s must have sliders – you’re so ahead of the times, Dave!

We’re not going to lie we secretly love looking back at the Beckham’s matchy matchy leather get-ups but David has learned how to make leather a bit cooler in recent years.

Dave proved his, er, fashion credentials at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards in a double denim get-up.

We have to admit the shaved head look was totes one of our fave Becks barnets – swoon!
