Remember when Beckham went everywhere in matching clothes?



Remember when Beckham went everywhere in matching clothes?

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Dig into the pop culture history archive, “Remember When?” is the CNN Style series which offers a nostalgic look on celebrity clothing that defines their era.

The first digital fashion week in London starts today, offering the ideal opportunity to reflect on where British fashion is going – and how far it has gone.

And when we look back on the country’s recent history of style, there is one couple who embodies the evolution of fashion: David and Victoria Beckham.

Today, Victoria’s fashion label is a credible fashion week kit, and David is a dapper style icon, but not always. For one thing, who can forget when they go everywhere in matching clothes?

Around the turn of the millennium, you cannot open a newspaper in the UK without seeing the coordinated Posh and Becks approach to what we now know as #couplegoals.

At the 2001 screenplay of the cult film “Withnail and I”, they chose head-to-toe chocolate, with David wearing the wrong Matrix-style raincoat.

Two years later, at the MTV Movie Awards, they went for a fine jewel encrusted white ensemble (later enshrined by Madame Tussauds). Then, of course, there was a couple’s wedding in 1999, where they married cream before turning purple to cut their cakes with unnecessary large swords.

But, just a few weeks before, there was a more coordinated iconic fashion moment.

It was Beckham Mania’s highlight when the supercouple stepped head-to-toe at a Versace party in London. Victoria will start recording the third Spice Girls album, and David has just helped Manchester United claim the English and European championships. Their first son, Brooklyn, was just born, and the couple recently bought a comfortable family home dubbed “Beckingham Palace” by the media.

With a nod to the host that night, suitable clothes were made by Versace. The jacket and combo pants – shiny enough to reflect the paparazzi’s light, and tighter than expected in the loose 90s – stole the attention and splashed into the newspaper the next day.

It is often overlooked that the outfit is not very suitable for this season. After all, it’s mid-June (although summer in the UK is often so light that you can wear all the skin without sweating too much). Perhaps that explains why David and Victoria chose to lower the zippers from their strapped collars, leaving the smallest flash of skin peering through the effective keyhole neckline.

However, for such a brave appearance, it was almost entirely empty of attitude. They looked like a pair of friendly motorcyclists who stopped by a British village pub for orange juice. Floppy-haired David – who finished the outfit with a pair of flat shoes with flat toes – didn’t even look convinced by his initial idea.

There was darkness in his eyes that night, as if he knew one day he would regret the decision. And indeed, he did.

“Wow, we really did this,” he wrote Instagram, posting an iconic image to mark her 2017 wedding anniversary. She elaborated in H&M magazine soon after: “They are Versace. But that is when I look back and say, ‘What do we think?’ We laugh about it. I remember it very well until you did it as a couple. “

Victoria, however, does not want to deny the past. “I have never looked back and cringed at anything,” he told Grazia in 2018.

And why does he have to do it? For one, as a respected owner – though consistently unprofitable – fashion label, Posh now has a sufficient reputation as a designer to avoid questions about prior clothing choices.

But maybe even more important: Clothes do exactly what they should.

Britain’s obsession with Beckham’s clothes may be partly driven by tabloids who sneered at the idea of ​​wasting new wealth, but publicity helped them. Even the most questionable outfits contribute to one of the exercises to build the most successful entertainment brands in the modern world.

The coordinated style helps couples transform themselves from the single Victoria Adams and David Beckham, to the collective “Posh and Becks”, a nickname that is so pervasive that added to Collins Short English Dictionary. Their ability to create a unified identity goes far beyond the capabilities of predecessors such as Hugh Grant and Liz Hurley, while laying the foundation for the coming super couple (and, unlike Bennifer, TomKat, and Brangelina, their relationship is also further away).

These days, Beckham takes a far more refined approach to twins. Their collective style has evolved from copying to complementary. Take the navy pickup they wear to Buckingham Palace in 2017, or the white tie attire worn on Meet Gala, where they are not seen out of place on the biggest stage of high fashion.
And of course, the skin is ugly, but at least not Britney and Justin in denim clothes bad.

Ruben Amorim defends Paulinho. ″He is the best Portuguese striker I want″



Ruben Amorim defends Paulinho.  ″He is the best Portuguese striker I want″

Rubén Amorim, the Sporting manager, showed this Friday that he is confident that Sporting will beat Benfica again, as they did in the league, and reclaim the League Cup.

“We are in a big club that needs to win titles. We are in the final and anything can happen. But I am sure that we will win. If we win, this is another trophy that will go to the museum. Life goes on. “The rest of the season remains the same,” said the coach, who has won the trophy twice as a manager and six times as a player.

For Benfica, Amorim dismissed the idea that Benfica were more in need of a win because they lacked titles and suggested that they were a different team than the one they faced in the league.

“That game was tough and we killed it when we had to. Tomorrow (Saturday) it will be a different game than in the championship. This is the game that defines the title and affects all players. pressure than on us.” The pressure is on our side because we have to win. The fact that we won less time ago does not take the pressure off us,” suggested Ruben Amorim.

Saying that Benfica’s main difference will be a new tactical system, with the prospect of the Eagles playing in a 4-3-3 formation, the “lion” coach also addressed moves in the transfer market, criticism of Paulinho and a perceived interest in Slimani. .

“Paulinho is the best Portuguese striker I want for our team. Whatever happens in the market, I will be here to comment. Everything that will be done will be in line with what we consider to be the best for Sporting,” the coach concluded.

Pela Europa

O governo britânico pretende aliviar as restrições anticovid em Inglaterra eo fim do uso obrigatorio das máscaras é uma das medidas já em vigor.

Para o ministro da Saude britânico, Sajid Javidmanter a proteção facial contra a Covid-19 é agora “um questão de decisão pessoal“, mas ainda assim alguns operadores de transportes públicos ingleses mantém o pedido de uso de máscaras nos respetivos serviços.

Na Dinamarca, todas as restrições vão ser levantadas a partir de 1 de fevereiro. Entre os dinamarqueses, existe um misto de medo e alívio. Até porque este foi o país onde a variante Ómicron começou por ser mais agressiva na Europa e ainda há muitas pessoas infetadas.

Em Franca, a dois meses das eleições presidenciais, voltaram as manifestações sindicais pelos aumentos salariais, num contexto ainda muito marcado pela Covid-19. Em especial nas escolas, com muitas salas fechadas devido a professores infetados.

De acordo com o balanço desta quarta-feira, foram diagnosticadas em 24 horas mais 392 mil novas infeções e registados mais 268 mortos em ambiente hospitalar, o que elevou a tragédia de Covid-19 em França para mais de 130 mil mortos em quase dois anos de presença do vírus no país.
