We can always go for a good dose of David Beckham. But today we got more than we bargained for: David Beckham, President Obama and Michelle Obama all in the same room!

President Obama was his cheery self as he welcomed the L.A. Galaxy soccer team to the White House, and Michelle looked lovely herself in a bow-tied blouse that appears to be a Moschino repeat from 2009 (closet-surfing -- we love it).

But Beckham's appearance caught us off-guard. Is that a mustache on the soccer star? And a goatee? Is it just us or does David look like an ironic Williamsburg hipster crossed with Ricky Gervais?

Not that we're mocking dear David. We'll leave that to POTUS, who took a few shots at the star while addressing the group:

We also have a young up-and-comer on the team, a guy named David Beckham. I have to say I gave David a hard time -- I said half his teammates could be his kids. We're getting old, David. Although you're holding up better than me.

Obama also pointed out that Beckham's got his own underwear line. So zeitgeisty, Mr. President! Who wrote that speech for you?

Check out the president, first lady and a very dapper (and oddly shaven) David Beckham hanging out in the White House. Are you digging David's new look?
