Victoria and David Beckham Recreate Purple Wedding Outfits for 25th Anniversary Celebration

Victoria and David Beckham are elevating their icon status as they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The couple, who tied the knot on 4th July 1999, shared a joint Instagram post donning outfits strikingly similar to the purple Antonio Berardi reception attire they wore on their wedding day 25 years ago. “Look what we found…” they captioned the Instagram post.

It’s unclear if they are wearing the original outfits, but the bold purple suit and the figure-hugging dress with floral accents look identical to what they wore back then. In the new photo, the couple lounges on thrones — fitting for a queen of fashion and a king of sports celebrating 25 years of marriage. To modernize her look, Victoria wore silver stilettos that laced up her calves and styled her long brown hair down. In 1999, her short hair showcased more of the floral detail on her one-shoulder dress.

David, meanwhile, sports many more tattoos in the updated photo and has fewer highlights in his hair. His styling remains quite similar, completing his suit with matching purple shoes and an affectionate look for his wife.

They posed holding hands, with the only thing missing being their oldest son, Brooklyn Peltz Beckham, 25, who also wore a purple suit and matching cowboy hat at the wedding. The couple, who are also parents to Romeo Beckham, 21, Cruz Beckham, 19, and Harper Beckham, 12, got married four months after Brooklyn was born. For the ceremony, Victoria wore a champagne ball gown by Vera Wang.

Wang told PEOPLE in October that the dress had to travel back and forth between London and New York four times during its creation.

“I call it the transatlantic dress,” Wang said. “The bodice flew back and forth four times on the Concorde. The actual under-bodice was made by a famous couture corsetiere named Mister Pearl, who works only out of London.” Wang considered the corset design too extreme for herself but perfect for Victoria. “I could not live with that because I need to be comfortable, as I always say. But Victoria did.”
