Beckham blends in at bash

David Beckham apparently tricked guests at a Halloween masquerade bash by dressing as himself.

The British sportsman is currently in the US on a mission to bring Major League Soccer to Miami.

When he was invited to the Halloween Hangover party at New York's Bowery Hotel over the weekend, David apparently kept things simple and didn't wear a costume to the annual bash.

However, even without an elaborate mask and outfit, people were allegedly convinced he was just a regular guest dressed up as the famous soccer star.

"David Beckham showed up after 1am [on Saturday] with [Milk Studios'] Mazdack Rassi and Alexandra Richards, who was DJing. Beckham was practically the only person at the party not in costume - but because of this, barely anyone recognised him," a source told the New York Post's Page Six column.

"Somebody asked him, 'What's your costume?' He said, 'I'm going as David Beckham,' and the person replied, 'Wow, you look just like him!'"

The party was thrown by nightlife experts Jeffrey Jah and Matt Levine, with other guests in attendance including models Jeisa Chiminazzo, Aline Weber, Jessica White, Anouk Sanders and Alynn Babinski.

While he didn't look scary at the party, David - who has four children with fashion designer wife Victoria Beckham - did show off his fun side on his official Facebook page.

The 38-year-old star posted a photo of himself last Thursday wearing a chilling Chucky mask covered in scratches and a ginger-coloured wig under a black hat.

"Happy Halloween!" he wrote alongside the picture, which already has nearly 200,000 'likes'.
