Surprised? David Beckham has been named the most Stylish Man of the Year at the 2013 GQ Men of the Year Awards. The event took place at the Komische Oper in Berlin, Germany on Thursday, Nov. 7.

Looking dapper, the retired soccer player wore a dark suit, white shirt, and pencil tie for the evening. Like Kate Middleton and Prince William earlier in the day, he also donned a poppy pin to honor London Poppy Day.

"Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence," José RedondoVega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany, said of the 38-year-old at the event.

He continued: "With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models, and photographers, and the world of world-class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport."

The father of four with fashion designer Victoria Beckham wasn't the only famous face in the audience. "Blurred Lines" crooner Robin Thicke and actor Kellan Lutz were also in attendance.
