Footballer Fits: The best red carpet looks from Ballon d’Or 2023

The prestigious Ballon d’Or award not only recognizes this year’s best footballers who succeed on the pitch but showcases a fashionable night filled with fine tuxes

The night of nights for football returns and, to delight of many, Lionel Messi was awarded this year’s Ballon d’Or. The GOAT of football took home his eighth best men’s performer trophy, making him the most-awarded footballer at the event’s 67th edition.

Apart from the night’s most-awaited moment, the event kicked off with a fabulous red-carpet session at the Theatre du Chatelet. Among the guests were esteemed footballers from the world’s top leagues such as David Beckham, Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Jr., and many more.

Their attendances, of course, keep making headlines. Lionel Messi in particular has also received praise for his appearance in a custom-made Louis Vuitton single-breasted tuxedo and a Tambour watch in 18K yellow gold. On the other hand, former footballer David Beckham was also notable for his posh appearance in a navy-blue suit. Rising football talent Jude Bellingham also looked stunning in a custom Louis Vuitton suit.
