On Tuesday night he attended a private invite-only reception at Adrienne Arsht Center. When asked by reporters to comment on his MLS team, he would only say, “I’m going to answer all those questions tomorrow. I think everyone will be very happy with tomorrow, hopefully, and it’s an exciting time for myself, an exciting time to be welcomed into a city like this, so yeah, tomorrow’s going to be a good day.”

On Wednesday, at the Perez Art Museum, as expected the former LA Galaxy, Real Madrid and Manchester United player exercised his option to become an owner of a new MLS franchise in Miami ending months of speculation.

To mark the transition from player to club owner, Beckham opted for a more executive look for both events. Tuesday for the more formal event, he wore a black Ralph Lauren Black Label 'Anthony' suit with a white Aston shirt by the same fashion label and on Wednesday he went to is British roots and wore a Burberry suit in grey.

Ralph Lauren is an all American designer, who started his life in fashion working for Brook Brothers as a sales associate and eventually left to become a salesman for a tie company. In 1966, when he was 26, he was inspired to design a wide, European-style necktie, but the idea was rejected by the company he worked for. He left to establish his own company selling the ties he made to small shops in New York.
