When in the business of capturing celebrity likenesses in wax, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date with star's latest looks. David Beckham discovered this first-hand during a visit to Madame Tussauds in London, where he came face to face with his and wife Victoria Beckham’s wax figures.
In a photo the soccer star posted to Instagram this weekend, he poses in front of the couple’s look-alikes while wearing a tweed newsboy cap. He resembles his dapper wax counterpart fairly closely except for one major difference: his facial hair.
David wrote a grateful caption while still poking fun at the figure’s lack of a mustache and beard along with his photo: “Thank you to Nicole and everyone at Madame Tussauds for letting me meet this lovely couple and showing the kids around ... ( slightly hairier) myself not my wife.”
His London figure was unveiled in 2014 in advance of his 15th wedding anniversary with Victoria, but when compared to the real thing it now seems positively retro.
