Gardner and Becks – who love to share ‘banter’ on messaging service Whats App – are regularly seen drinking beer at The Cow pub in Notting Hill, close to Beckham’s Holland Park mansion.
Friends say Gardner is Beckham’s closest confidante, keeper of his secrets.
But if you'd like to recreate the look at a fraction of the price then head to our edit below for more perfect embellished confections from the likes of Needle & Thread, Amelia Rose and Maya.
According to friends, Gardner is a ‘supreme networker’ whose ‘charm, sense of humour and immense loyalty’ have enabled him to expand his social circle to people such as Lady Mary and her aristocratic chums.
The former England captain struck up a friendship with ‘Sloane Raver’ Lady Mary at last summer’s Glastonbury Festival, where she was photographed alongside the Beckhams in a VIP balcony in the wings of the main Pyramid stage.
Lady Mary, daughter of James Charteris, the 13th Earl of Wemyss and 9th Earl of March, grew up on a sprawling estate in Gloucestershire – a far cry from the Chingford semi where Becks was brought up by his gas-fitter father Ted and hairdresser mother Sandra.
But confirmation that David Beckham’s Pygmalion-style makeover is nearing completion is his ever-expanding collection of upper-class friends.
The latest milestone in this remarkable transformation – the so-called Poshing of Becks – came last week when his latest social ‘acquisition’ was revealed to be the fast-living aristocrat Lady Mary Charteris.
Suki was also at Gardner’s star-studded 40th birthday party at the exclusive Lou Lou’s in Mayfair. Yet the best-connected of Beckham’s new posh posse are the most unlikely acolytes of all: the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, and her daughter Princess Beatrice.
It was Fergie who organised the notorious tea party at Buckingham Palace for Beckham’s daughter Harper’s sixth birthday, when Harper also met Princess Eugenie, another Beckham buddy.
Then there is Suki Waterhouse, 25, the glamorous model daughter of a society plastic surgeon who lives just a stone’s throw from the Beckhams.
Suki and her younger sister Immy draped themselves around Beckham at a Burberry party – which is said to have left a snarling Victoria furious.
It is all the stranger, then, to learn that the man behind this inexorable social rise is another working-class outsider – Beckham’s oldest friend and drinking partner Dave Gardner.
