JOE's Style Icons - David Beckham
He is one of the most famous people on the planet. Played football once too.
On the eve of the launch of what HTC says is it's most beautifully designed phone yet, we celebrate another style icon in the form of David Beckham.
He played for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain and captained England. A dead ball specialist who wasn't blessed with pace, but became a household name when he married a Spice Girl. He was under an intense media spotlight when he started dating Victoria Adams aka Posh Spice. Rather than shun it, he embraced it, much to the chagrin of his boss at Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson.
Beckham was never afraid to stand out from the crowd and was seen as a major trend setter. People copied his hairstyles, his wardrobe and he was viewed as a sex symbol all over the world. He once famously wore a sarong and rather than catch a lot of flak, he was actually complimented for trying something different. He is the ultimate modern man, the quintessential metrosexual and whatever your opinion on the lad from Leytonstone, you cannot deny that he scrubs up well.
