When it comes to beloved celebrity couples, few have had as long and poignant of a sartorial impact as Victoria and David Beckham. It all began in 1997, when the Spice Girls alum, who established herself as a fashion muse early on in her career, and the professional football player (who is also no stranger to a stellar lewk) met at the Manchester United players' lounge. Ever since they started dating the same year, the ‘90s It pair has been an unstoppable force on and off the red carpet. And in honor of their newly released Netflix documentary Beckham, TZR is breaking down the duo’s buzziest fashion moments throughout their two-decade-plus relationship.
The four-part series, which dropped on Oct. 4, follows David’s early career at Manchester United, as well as the beginning of the couple’s headline-making romance. Of course, the documentary touches on the Beckham’s decades-long reign as the king and queen of coordinated numbers.
One of the earliest — and arguably most iconic — coordinating moment between the pair is from 1998 when they announced their engagement to the world. While posing for the cameras, Posh Spice flashed her stunning marquise-cut diamond (one of her 15 engagement rings, BTW) next to her soon-to-be husband while both donning black turtlenecks. Since then, they’ve worn identical Versace leather looks, complementing cream Ralph Lauren outfits at the 2014 Met Gala, and, most recently, on Oct. 3, matching menswear-inspired ensembles at the U.K. premiere of their new series.
