Twenty years of matching hair cuts and sharing sarongs.

ON FRIDAY, BOOKIES suspended bets that one of the world’s most famous celeb couples – David and Victoria Beckham – would divorce.

A spokesperson for the couple quickly rubbished rumours, saying:

It’s a crock of a s***. Embarrassing and laughable.

Thank God, because one of the most solid links to our collective childhoods has been the fascinating and – more times than not – matching fashion choices of the couple we have come to know as Posh n Becks.

The two first met attending a charity football match. It was a simpler time: a time of two tone brown lipsticks and denim blazers.

In those pre-mobile phone days, Victoria Adams aka Posh Spice, wrote her numba on the back of a plane ticket David had on him. Each was already famous in their respect field and already fancied each other.

As David said in his autobiography:

“My wife picked me out of a soccer sticker book. And I chose her off the telly. It felt straight away like we’d always been meant to be together.”

Being famous in the news is the celeb version of tinder.

But the real reason they were always meant to be together was their shared love of outrageously trendy fashion. Here’s the rundown on twenty years of a shared passion.

7. And the Oscar for best self-promotion goes to…

“Omg David, what an insane coincident that we’re both rocking a casual look of jeans, black blazers, white tees, ombre sunnies, silver necklaces, diamond studs when the paparazzi are about in Heathrow.”
