Why is the world obsessed with the Beckham power couple? It could be that England’s “Posh and Becks,” the much-adored, never-ignored couple, view life and each other in such a beloved way. Last month, in an interview with The Mirror, David Beckham talked about his wife’s eye for style saying, “That’s what’s great about having a partner, having a wife that has the eye that she has.” We wonder if studying the way the Beckhams look at things literally might reveal a secret to keeping our own lives immersed in their optimism. Let’s take a look at the eyewear through which they view their life together. Do Victoria and David Beckham look better with or without glasses?
There has been some recent speculation that David now requires a prescription pair of eyeglasses. These suspicions have been unconfirmed. David has been snapped in his lenses multiple times, but it appears this Beckham didn’t want to be caught wearing prescription eyewear in the photo at right below.
Like his tattoos, David’s frames have been the focus of media attention. The soccer star is often seen sporting sunglasses and was even a Global Brand Ambassador for Police Eyewear in 2004. Aviators reflect nicely on Beckham, but it’s hard not to be bias toward a Beckham without. Without dark frames or shades to mask his stare, we get to truly behold the warmth behind this family man’s eyes. We definitely prefer the relatable, loving husband to the aloof super star.

Of course behind every good man stands a great woman. Victoria Beckham, known for her long and established Spice Girls career, has grown into an internationally recognized style icon and fashion designer. But how does Posh Spice feel about glasses? The designer readily admits that she needs prescription eyewear. “I do need to wear glasses, but I haven’t found glasses that suit me or that I particularly like,” Beckham has stated. “I’ve always been quite self-conscious about this, so that’s why I’ve decided to do them myself.” In the past three years, she has added optical frames as well as sunglasses to her fashion line in partnership with Cutler & Gross. Victoria certainly looks luminous in some oversized sunnies, but a frameless face shows she really knows how to make brown eyes pop with shimmery shadows. With her noble looks and angular facial features, we think some round, thin-framed glasses could soften her features. However, considering that Victoria clearly prefers to go without, we may never know.
Let’s answer the question from the title of this post. David Beckham looks better without glasses, and trendsetter Victoria seems to prefer contact lenses to frames. Tell us what YOU think!
