What MADE Them Haute The former Spice Girl and the soccer star made international headlines when they decided to make Los Angeles their home. David can be credited with making soccer haute again in America, while Victoria can be credited with just being haute.
What Makes Them Haute Now Forbes announced this month that, once again, David Beckham is the highest paid athlete in the sport of soccer, raking in an annual sum of $40 million. That entire amount doesn’t come from his skills on the field however; he also trades on his good looks as a spokesman for Adidas, Giorgio Armani and Motorola. So when you hear reports that he may lose some serious sponsorship dollars because he is not able to play in the World Cup this summer due to an injury, don’t feel too bad for him. Instead of toiling away on the field, he can instead spend some quality time with his beautiful and spicy wife Victoria, who has been seen dragging the footballer through art galleries in New York over the past couple of days.
