Victoria and David Beckham might now be synonymous with style, class and glamour - but, it's probably fair to say, this hasn't always been the case. They might now be famous for Victoria's eponymous fashion line and David's sharp suits, but when Posh and Becks were climbing the ladder as showbiz royalty, they were known for their more fun, brashier sense of style. Which included highlights, huge sunglasses and matching outfits to rival the likes of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears' denim VMA look.

In case you don't remember, some of David and Victoria's most iconic twinning looks include the outlandish purple ensembles they wore to their wedding reception, and the all over matching leather looks they wore in 1999 to a party in London. (The latter must have been quite sweaty.)

Now, all these years later, Victoria has revealed why her and David used to clone their style. And it turns out they were just having a laugh. 'It just seemed like a really good idea at the time,' Victoria said, speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. 'It really did. I think there was a naïveté then, we didn't know about fashion.'

Victoria might know more about clothes now, and look constantly chic, what with having her own label, but she actually looks back and wishes she had the same confidence with her outfits now. 'We were just having fun with it, which to be honest with you, is kind of the way it should be,' she continued. 'I really wish I had the courage to do it more now.'

Well, matching outfits with your partner is a brave look for the everyday - but if anybody needs any Halloween inspiration, might we suggest a retro Posh and Becks look?
