Now that Victoria Beckham has ditched her former WAG style, conquered the world of fashion and her husband has laid his love of sarongs to rest, it's easy to forget that the duo have made some questionable sartorial choices over the years. But it seems that these mistakes are still fresh in the couple's minds.
David Beckham took part in a web chat on Yahoo yesterday and was asked if he and Victoria had made any major fashion errors. His reply? 'There's a couple of instances we regret, like when we both wore leather trousers and a jacket. Victoria looked good but together I look back and think it was a bit much.'
We think this is quite an understatement, but we're grateful he's brought it up so we could treat ourselves to another look at the outfit in question. To refresh your memory, the incident took place back in 1999 and the pair were at a Versace gala in London.
David also revealed that he and his fashion-forward wife set out to co-ordinate their outfits. He said, 'Victoria looks good in anything. People always ask if we combine our clothes but sometimes one of us will be ready downstairs and the other will come down and we'll have the same colour or type of outfit, which is just coincidence most of the time.' We wonder if the leather look was planned or accident...?
