Footballers and Fashion

Footballers and Fashion – do they go well? As long as Beckham stays out of that god-awful sarong he wore a few years back, I think there is a definite merit to the marriage of football and fashion. For many years we’ve seen an increase in the number of gorgeous footballers fronting campaigns for International fashion houses and why not? They have millions adoring fans all over the world which is perfect for brands wanting to market their products on a global scale.

Here’s a look at some of the best campaigns over the past few years.
