4. Rio Ferdinand – Manchester United
It’s no surprise the former ballet dancer is so into mens fashion, his father is a tailor. No wonder he has so
many fine tailored suits. Rio is always looking well and he has even launched his own menswear range of shoes
named “5ive” after his Manchester United shirt number. The collection also includes a line of man
bags and other accessories and Rio had a big input into the design of all the different items. Rio has
been so unlucky with injuries in recent times some would argue that he would be better off hanging
up his boots and focusing on his clothing line. Being a Liverpool fan myself I certainly wouldn’t mind
if he retired.
3. Thierry Henry – New York Red Bulls
Henry has a knack for choosing the right outfit to give him the va va voom factor, whatever he wears
he looks well. Thierry teamed up Tommy Hilfiger to launch a line of clothing. All the money that was
raised from the clothing line was donated to his charity “The One 4 All Foundation” which fight
racism and social inequality. Henry said he got his fashion style from his father. He said Henry senior
always wore matching clothes and had his own unique crazy style, maybe his father thought him
how to ‘handle’ the ball too.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid
The Portuguese man is another footballer with his own line of clothing called CR7 and he opened
two boutiques with the same name in his hometown Madeira and a second in Lisbon. Ronaldo always
looks well regardless of whether he is suited up or wearing anything else. Cristiano didn’t only
take Beckham’s number 7 shirt when he left Manchester, he also took some of his style in copying
the Beckham open collar shirt with a suit look and Cristiano also wears this relaxed look very well
normally with a pair of his trademark shades. He has also followed in the footsteps of Beckham by
becoming a face of Emporio Armani and moving to Madrid. Ronaldo has taken the casual look to a
whole new level in modern fashion and he has to be credited for this.
1. David Beckham – LA Galaxy
Beckham has worn some very questionable outfits, for example the sarong which was a dress
and was dubbed “So Wrong” by Ali-G at the time. But apart from wearing dresses and looking
like one of the Spice Girls Becks is a very stylish man. It’s no surprise he has his own line of
clothing with Adidas and another range with his wife Victoria called the DVB (David Victoria
Beckham). He has also been the face of many other companies such as Emporio Armani. It
doesn’t matter if Beckham is dressing formally with his trade mark unbuttoned shirt and suit or
his casual American aviator sunglasses, t-shirt and jeans look, he always looks the part and that
is why he is the best dressed footballer.
