Wait, Which Beckham Was Voted More Stylish?

by Alexa Tucker

According to a British Style Poll, David Beckham beat Victoria out as most fashionable Brit. I didn't think that it was even a question as to which half of the UK's most beautiful couple is more stylish, but apparently, the Brits disagree. I'm going to go ahead and say this had to be rigged, or people need to get their eyes (and sense of style) checked. Don't get me wrong, David is one incredibly dapper guy, but we're talking about designer extraordinaire/icon Victoria here.

The poll, which was done to celebrate the release of the new Samsung Galaxy S6, surveyed 2,000 British people to find out who the top ten most stylish English icons are. Victoria sneaked in at the ninth spot while David took third place (the first guy on the list.) Here's a look at the full results:

  1. Audrey Hepburn
  2. Princess Diana
  3. David Beckham
  4. Kate Middleton
  5. Twiggy
  6. Queen Elizabeth I
  7. Sean Connery
  8. David Bowie
  9. Victoria Beckham
  10. Kate Moss

I mean, come on. I love Kate Middleton as much as the next Anglophile, and she's a very well-dressed princess, but she is not more stylish than VB. And Sean Connery? No way. Perhaps the most surprising appearance is Queen Elizabeth I — the woman died in 1603. I'm sure she had a flair for drama in her ensembles, but did you ever see her win a British Fashion Award? Sorry, QE1.

In any case, I'm rendering the results of this poll null and void because they are kind of absurd. No offense to David, but I would have moved him back to the ninth spot and called Victoria number one. Besides, I like him better when he sticks to a minimalist look (read: only his boxer briefs.)
