Conor McGregor has told how his fashion icon has always been football legend David Beckham.

The UFC star, who is famed for wearing tailored suits and designer labels, said that he is a “fearless” dresser who “looks good in anything”.

But the 31-year-old has continually taken inspiration from former England captain and fashion enthusiast Beckham.


 

McGregor told GQ: “For me, the OG of fashion and male style is David Beckham. David Beckham was a pioneer.

“He paved the way for that kind of style. I actually talked to David; he sent me some clothes.

“They’re in my office right now as we speak. At my daughter’s christening, my sister bought a dress from Victoria Beckham’s own line for the event.

“We have to go to David for inspiration, who I’d look up to style-wise, back in the day.

“But, really, my icons in style would be my mother and my father, who inspired me.”

McGregor has become one of the richest sports stars in the world and revealed that he often tries to match his clothes, watch and car – having took advice from his father Tony.

“Sometimes I do it subliminally,” he said about matching his clothes with his luxury cars. “I’ve got a good few cars, so whatever I pick out, I could probably match it to one of the cars.

“But I actually do that with the watches. I have a watch wardrobe – another thing my father taught me about.

“An accomplished man has got to have a watch wardrobe. Often, I’ll pair the clothes to the watch and sometimes I’ll walk out and I’ll match it to the car also.”
