The fashion icon is famed for his ability to ring the changes between designer chic and trendy casual: here he pulls out the stops for a visit to Buckingham Palace to accept his OBE
That England's favourite footballer knows the difference between "chic" and "chav" is beyond doubt, and over the course of his career he has made more than his fair share of style statements. Who can forget the media frenzy that erupted after Becks was photographed wearing a sarong while on holiday with his wife in 1998? And then there were the leather suits he and Victoria sported to a Versace show the following year, and the pink nail varnish he painted on for the christening of Liz Hurley's little boy..

"Eclectic" is the word which best defines David's image. He's as likely to be seen in ripped jeans and trainers as a sharp Armani suit. His hairstyles - which have ranged from tightly-braided cornrows to jaunty ponytails and punky Mohawks - have meanwhile provoked new trends in both Britain and the Far East. In recent months he has allowed his shaven look to grow shaggy and laid-back, but it's only a matter of time before another trip to the hairdresser sets the standard for the world's "metrosexuals" once again. It came as small surprise to the soccer star's fans when GQ magazine named him "the most stylish man of all time".
