Apparently she helps David get dressed in the morning…
You would expect David Beckham to have a team of stylists practically living in his walk-in wardrobe, but the soccer star apparently relies on one woman for style advice – his daughter Harper Seven.
Grazia reported on an interview Beckham did on ITV’s Lorraine where he spoke about Harper’s emerging talents, “She’ll come in and she’ll want to put my belt on or she’ll dress me or she’ll say, ‘Daddy, wear these shoes with that. It’s amazing.” Apparently Harper is picking with her own ensembles also, often abandoning a look at the last minute. David explained, “That started a year ago, she would get up in the morning and she’d pull her wardrobe open and take a good 20 minutes to decide what to wear and then she’d change her mind. I’m not used to that!”
Perhaps David ought to get used to such behavior – after all, his career since retiring from football has been one steeped in fashion. His advertisements for his capsule underwear an swimwear collections with H&M go hot-under-the-collar-viral on a regular basis and he is currently fronting a campaign for Belstaff, with whom he is also collaborating. And then there’s fact that his wife is winning more and more plaudits every year as her stunning collections transcended expectations like clockwork. This week’s show saw him sitting in the front row with Anna Wintour herself and his son Brooklyn.
In the meantime, will Harper be let into Victoria’s atelier for a bash at another Beckham family capsule? Wait and see. Wait a while maybe, after all she is only three and there are laws against that sort of thing.
