Beckham goes salt and pepper


George Clooney has inspired David Beckham to go grey. The soccer star — famed for his ever-changing locks — admits he is starting to go grey but hopes his appearance will soon resemble the Hollywood heartthrob. David, 32, is quoted as saying, “I’ve noticed a bit of grey, but as long as it’s George Clooney grey I don’t mind. George is one of the most handsome men in the world.”

In the past, the former England captain has had a Mohican, cornrows, blonde curtains, a shaved head and has worn a hair band. It was recently revealed that David is set to design outfits for the Spice Girls’ upcoming world tour.

The Los Angeles Galaxy player, who is married to Posh Spice Victoria, has been taking tips from top fashion designer Julien Macdonald. The rest of the band — Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell — are said to be behind the idea as they think it will be great fun to wear his designs. A source said, “David has been helping out a lot ahead of the Spice Girls tour, which starts in December and has offered to give them fashion advice.”
