David Beckham turns biker boy at LFW party

Dressed in head-to-toe leather and posing with an orange motorbike, David Beckham caused quite the stir as he arrived at a London Fashion Week party on Sunday night.

The entrance was fitting – David has an extensive motorbike collection and he is often spotted riding around Los Angeles.

But at the party, he revealed that his famous wife Victoria is not so keen on his means of travel. "Does Victoria approve?" he said. "She's not a fan of me riding. Because we've got four children. But I'm a safe rider, I wear the right clothing – at least I wear it the majority of the time."




He was unable to actually arrive at the event on the motorbike, however, because he is only legal to ride in the US and France – something he plans on rectifying asap.

"I have a Knucklehead which I got built about three years ago," he said. "It's all different parts from the Twenties up to the Sixties.

"I've never ridden in England, only in California and France – I'm not legal here, not yet."



The former footballing star was the guest of honour at Belstaff's store opening on New Bond Street and he was also unveiled as the new face of the brand, which has a strong biker heritage.

"When I started riding and looking at bikes I was looking for a jacket that looks cool but keeps you safe as well," he said.

"But it was difficult to find one. Then I went into this vintage store and came across this vintage Belstaff jacket."



Meanwhile, Victoria was also making an appearance at LFW. Wearing culottes from her new Spring/Summer 2014 collection and a sleeveless, knit turtleneck, the designer attended a Vogue dinner in Covent Garden.

At the lavish event, she was joined by fellow celebrities David Gandy, Daisy Lowe, Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung.
