BECKS SHOWS RONNIE HOW ITS DONE
Ronaldo may have stolen David Beckham's beloved No.7 United shirt but our Becks certainly gave his young pretender a lesson in style on the biggest showbiz stage.
The injured Manchester United star was outplayed last night by his predecessor after the Hollywood novice turned up to the ESPY Awards in LA on black crutches... and a terrible white suit! Sweaty and glowing a nasty orange tan, Ronnie got it all wrong with a dodgy high collared ministerial shirt and a badly clashing pearly cream suit. The 23-year-old finished off his disastrous combo with cream trainers and some porn star-style Polaroid sunglasses. He also forgot the most important accessory of them all – a hot chick on his arm. Meanwhile, wardrobe guru Becks glided onto the red carpet cool as ice, smouldering in a dapper navy blue suit teamed with a classic crisp white shirt and a sharp simple tie to match. Not that Becks, 33, needed any assistance in trouncing his younger rival but just for good measure he was never inches apart from the queen bee of style – wife, Victoria Beckham. Styling herself up as Audrey Hepburn, Posh strutted out a glorious lemon yellow pencil number and some super sized black sunnies to compliment her pouting. Sadly for hobbling Ronaldo it was inside where Becks continued to laud his popularity over him, winning over the affection of his adoring American audience.
Singer Justin Timberlake turned Becks' cheeks red and sent Victoria into a fit of giggles as he got on his knees to kiss the footballer's polished foot during the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre He then told the crowd, 'that's what $250 million dollars tastes like'. Shame, Ronaldo – time to hire a stylist. Timberlake, 27, also praised the LA Galaxy star, saying: 'Dude, I got to give you props. Singlehandedly you made soccer in America this much more popular.' 'I call it soccer because in America we already have a game dudes play called football.' Meanwhile, Becks has told fans on his blog he couldn't imagine been anywhere else but LA. 'It seems like only a few weeks ago I arrived in Los Angeles with my family ready for the next chapter in our lives,' he wrote.
'A year later and we feel so settled here, everyone loves California and everyone has made us feel so welcome. I can't imagine being anywhere else in the world right now.'
