The soccer icon was feted at the magazine's 15th annual awards on Thursday (07Nov13), where he was honoured for his classic style and influence in fashion at the prizegiving in Berlin, Germany.
Jose RedondoVega, editor-in-chief of Gq Germany, lauded Beckham at the ceremony, saying, "Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. 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."
Beckham's award comes two days after his wife Victoria Beckham was given the Special Contribution to British Fashion award at the Harper's Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards in London on Tuesday (05Nov13).
Australian singer Kylie Minogue was also a recipient of a Gq award, receiving the special Gentlewoman of the Year prize.
