David Beckham on his and Victoria's matching leather outfits: 'What were we thinking?!'

One of David and Victoria Beckham's most memorable fashion moments is the matching leather outfits they wore to a Gucci show in 1999. But David is not particularly proud of the now-iconic look, revealing that the couple look back and laugh at their fashion faux pas.

"Me and Victoria always laugh about when we went to this Gucci show and we had on matching leather outfits and now we're like, 'What were we thinking?!'," he told People magazine, who have named him the Sexiest Man Alive.

"We were living at her mum's house at the time and she was getting changed in her room – we weren't allowed to stay in the same room – and I was getting changed in my room downstairs.

"Then we both came to the kitchen and we were like 'Wow'. It was a LOT of leather. We still have those outfits..."

The star has now revealed that he and Victoria now laugh about their fashion choice

He also revealed that Victoria stopped him from making another fashion mistake he would end up regretting.

"Once I bought this suit jacket that was Galliano, so it was obviously very expensive, and it had half a pink bra hanging out of the inside pocket, sewn in," he said.

"I thought it looked good but Victoria was like, 'You are NOT wearing that!'"

It was revealed on Wednesday that David had been awarded the Sexiest Man Alive title by People.

And in an Instagram post about the accolade, the 40-year-old sports hero said that he thought he was past his sell-by date but that his mother would be pleased.

Writing to his 15.2 million followers, Becks said: "I thought I was past my sell by date but thanks to People Magazine for the accolade and the compliment!

"I always feel a little shy when receiving these Awards, though it will make my Mum happy. This one the kids will laugh at, as they see what Daddy looks like in the morning!"
