Victoria And David Beckham Go Head-To-Head For The Title Of British Style Icon At The British Fashion Awards 2012

04 September 2012 by

We imagine that things are going to be a little awkward in the Beckham household today as both Mr and Mrs are up for the coveted title of British Style Icon at the British Fashion Awards 2012. Previously picked up by worthy winners Kate Moss and Alexa Chung (twice) there's a good chance, as there's two of them in the mix, that this year could be the year of The Beckham.

Although Victoria started out in the music biz and David is a footballer, neither of the pair has shied away from the shiny lure of the fashion industry over the years. From Becks' penchant for changing his hairdo every five minutes and his recent bodywear collection for H&M to Victoria's enviable designer wardrobe and catwalk collections adored by fashion eds and celebs alike, it's no wonder that this couple are considered ambassadors for British style.

But who's the most stylish Beckham? And don't say Harper! Sure VB has the advantage, as she's not restricted to wearing nylon in her line of work, but try looking at David in a suit (or out of a suit for that matter) and tell us he's not the perfect embodiment of masculine style.

Meanwhile Victoria does tend to take it up a notch in her down time, wearing platforms to take the kids to school and pulling off polished airport looks. And when it comes to the red carpet we think they're pretty evenly matched.

What do your reckon - do David's dashing figure and sharp suits outweigh Victoria's sartorial know-how? Which Beckham is more worthy of the British Style Icon crown?
