David Beckham's Biggest Fashion Regret

David Beckham admits that he’s always liked fashion — but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t had a few misses here and there.

“Me and Victoria wore matching black leather outfits (left) once. They were Versace,” he recalls to H&M Life. “That’s one where I look back, like, ‘What were we thinking?’ We laugh about that one.”

Though the soccer star does have a sense of humor about style, he also takes it quite seriously. “Everything I’ve ever done, I’m involved,” he shares. “If I can’t be hands-on and totally involved, I don’t want anything to do with it. It’s something I’ve always done throughout my career. I don’t want to just give my name to someone to do whatever they want.”

That mantra applied to Beckham’s recent collaboration with H&M; he designed a line of men’s bodywear for the store. “I think H&M loved the fact that I was totally involved,” he says.

In fact, Victoria was involved, too; Beckham says he asked for her opinion throughout the design process. “She’s definitely someone whose judgment I trust, and she does have an expertise,” he explains.

Beckham — who admits he sets out the next day’s outfit every night before bed — sounds open to possibly designing a line as big as his wife’s someday, too.

“Maybe in the future something else will happen,” he says. “Five years ago, if someone had asked me if I was going to have my own underwear collection I would have said, ‘Probably not. No.’ And if someone had said to me 10 years ago that I would be playing soccer and living in America, I would have said the same thing. But plans change, life changes. So we’ll see.” Tell us: Would you wear clothes designed by David Beckham?

David Beckham is one of my Favorite Soccer Players, and I’m definitely a Big Fan, and if clothes were affordable, then yes, I’d wear them, and it’s amazing how things happened for him, and I like his honesty, and in the PHOTO above, it was definitely an interesting look!

LOVE the Beckhams. They all SEEM so involved in their family. The boys all seem so happy. Of course, I don’t know them personally, but I don’t think you can fake that kind of happiness on children. I would definitely buy his clothes, if affordable for the average person. He and Victoria both have a great fashion sense. Clean lines and chic looking and not fussy.
