The Ballon d’Or ceremony has always been a stellar event not just for football accolades, but also for fashion statements.
And Bellingham took centre stage on the red carpet dripping in Louis Vuitton from head to toe.
In the run-up to the prestigious award ceremony, the midfielder was interviewed by Real Madrid while getting ready for the event.
The English superstar’s mum can be seen helping Bellingham into a custom black flared Louis Vuitton suit.
And the Real Madrid ace was in awe about the whole event and humorously said about the other nominees: “All the people are so mature, I can’t even get changed on my own. My life’s a lie.”
On Monday night he shared the stage with some of football’s greats including eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, Erling Haaland and Bellingham’s team-mate Vinicius Junior.
The Bellingham became only the third Englishman to win the Kopa award as he followed in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling.

Bellingham has enjoyed a fantastic debut season so far at Real Madrid having scored 13 goals in 13 appearances.
He joined the LaLiga giants in the summer for £115million.
His former club Birmingham banked £10m from the sale thanks to a sell-on clause inserted into the deal when he joined Dortmund in 2020.
