While Prince William and Kate Middleton were the center of attention at the royal wedding, all eyes were on David and Victoria Beckham, who were surely the most stylish couple in Westminster Abbey.

The soccer star looked movie star handsome in a new slick-back hairstyle and dark Ralph Lauren grey suit with a light gray cravat, black crocodile-accented suspenders and personalized DB cufflinks. He wore the CBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) on his lapel and held a top hat in his hand. His neck tattoo peeked out of the back of his shirt.

Wife Victoria, who is several months pregnant with the couple's fourth child, looked considerably more understated in a dark tunic dress from her collection, which she unveiled at New York fashion week in February. She had her hair pulled back into a ponytail and wore a Phillip Treacy hat perched on her forehead.

While David smiled broadly and seem excited to be at the wedding, Victoria had a perpetual scowl on her face — a common look for those who have seen her at fashion week activities. But she and her husband seemed genuinely moved by the ceremony and affectionately locked arms at times while walking entering and exiting the cathedral.
