With a certain soccer tournament right around the corner, we’ve got the sport on the brain. And fashion? Well, here at Rue, that goes without saying. But it turns out these two things are more entwined than you think. Yes, there are the colorful jerseys and knee-high socks, but there’s more to it. Here are three connections you may not know about.

As the offspring of an international pop star–turned–designer and soccer legend–slash–underwear god, the Beckham children come from one seriously amazing gene pool. So the fact that they’re taking over the fashion world one by one shouldn’t really come as a surprise.

First there was Romeo, who starred alongside Cara Delevingne in a 2013 Burberry campaign. And now Brooklyn, his brother and the eldest child of the superstar couple, is jumping on the modeling bandwagon – he landed the cover of this year’s spring/summer issue of Man About Town.

Honestly, it’s probably just a matter of time before Cruz, Harper, and the family’s pet all ink their own modeling deals.

First Heidi Klum and now Victoria and David Beckham – these celebs are donating their clothes for a cause. In Victoria and David’s case, it’s to aid typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines. While Heidi picked out a few choice items, the Beckhams are basically cleaning house. They’ve picked out a truckload of their previously worn clothes and shoes and shipped it all off to a London charity shop.

InStyle UK is reporting that the donation includes hundreds of Victoria’s shoes (look out for some gently worn Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks) in addition to pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, and more. Plus, there are a bunch of David’s baseball caps – if you’re into that sort of thing.

The items went on sale today, but don’t expect the charity shop to ship – if you’re not in the UK, you’re a bit out of luck when it comes to snagging the goods. (Anyone else kind of want to hop a plane to Heathrow ASAP?)

Not to sound obsessive or anything, but we’ve kind of been waiting on the edge of our seats for a new David Beckham ad campaign. (Remember his H&M underwear campaign? Yowzas!)

Well, the wait is officially over: Beckham is the new face of British brand Belstaff.

Beckham Bends For Belstaff

According to our friends at Fashionista, it might even be better than we imagined:

The campaign, shot by Peter Lindbergh and meant to evoke “the spirit of a band of brothers traveling across the English countryside,” is just as dirty and greasy and OMG DAVID BECKHAM IS SO HOT as you’d expect it to be. There’s a motorcycle, a tin coffee mug, lots of leather and an interesting 5:1 ratio of men to women.

In short? Beckham knows how to bend it – and we like it.

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?
