Winonah de Jong: Orange Is The New Black

Our fashion-related obsession with Winonah de Jong continues to grow now that her blog for Life After Football is up and running.  Full disclosure: we’re not really bothering to run it through Google translate because we really just want to see what she’s wearing.

Winonah has proven a master at incorporating orange (the color of The Netherlands’ NT, natch) into her Euro 2012 looks. For the Oranje’s first match against Denmark, she wore an orange printed Gucci top similar to the one here, Victoria Beckham jeans, Gucci flip flops and the obligatory orange Hermés Birkin and Goyard bags.

It’s a perfect WAG look, is it not?

We also love the subtle orange in her Giambattista Valli jacket here. The jacket is… interesting, but we commend her dedication to keeping it patriotic.

The Dutch got off to a tough start, but we do hope their situ improves. We need more Winonah.

Bouchra van Persie: Spotted In Stella McCartney

Bouchra van Persie must have had an inkling that her man would be taking home the bacon from the PFA Player of The Year Awards last night because she spared no expense with her look.

Mrs. VP wore a full-length Spring 2012 Stella McCartney dress and carried a gorgeous yellow Bottega Veneta knot clutch.

Now, we know every version of this dress as been around the block and then some, but somehow it feels fresh on her. Maybe it’s the classic pairing of blue and yellow that’s making it stand out for us.

Even if you don’t like her choice of ensemble, you can’t hate on her hair. We’re booking a Keratin treatment, like, yesterday. What do you think of Bouchra’s look?

Get The Look: Frankie Sandford’s Fab Neon

It was going to take one heck of a fashion act of contrition for us to forgive Ms. Sandford for using her Birkin as an umbrella, but we think she’s done it.

While in L.A. with her bandmates last week Frankie hit all the Spring trend nails on the head. We are all about neon for Spring and this in-your-face Elizabeth and James blazer is the way to do it. She was also brave enough to tackle one of Spring’s most daring trends – the bra top.

Our abs need a little lot more work before we can pull off a bra top, but luckily our feet are always good to go so we’ll just claim Frankie’s Christian Louboutin Melides wegdes for our own.

Now back to the neon. We’ve scoured the interwebs to bring you our favorite neon accessories.


Abbey Crouch: Spotted In Vintage

Abbey Crouch did her best fembot impersonation on the Brit Awards red carpet last night.

She donned an adorable 1960s vintage pink tweed dress via William Vintage and a simple pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels. Even though she’s still showing more leg than a bucket of chicken, we think this is a big departure from her usual style.

Her hair and make-up were smartly kept in a 1960s style with a heavy-lidded eye, light pink lips and loose curls.

There’s no Herve Leger in sight and for that we’re thankful. What do you think of this look on Abbey?


Victoria, Victoria Beckham: Fall 2012

Even we’re getting annoyed at our praise for Victoria Beckham, but the woman can just do no wrong lately. Victoria presented her other eponymous collection at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday and the reviews are just as rave as they are for her mainline collection. The Victoria line is full of dresses that every girl will want to wear. Which is exactly why Net-a-Porter is already on its second order having only stocked the dresses since Wednesday and Harvey Nichols has a waiting list a mile long.


Irina Shayk: Spotted In Roland Mouret

Now this is exactly what we expect La Shayk to look like.

Irina was on hand at “The Late Show With David Letterman” in NYC last night to pass the SI Swimsuit Issue cover girl crown to Kate Upton. For just such an occasion Cristiano’s lady chose a lovely mustard yellow Roland Mouret dress with fun architectural details.

She covered up in a black fur coat, dressed her ears in her favorite green jeweled earrings and wore the same Christian Louboutin No. 299 heels she wore the her Elie Saab gown back in November. Needless to say, the Loubs are much better suited to this ensemble.

On paper mustard yellow, emerald green, and dark purple sound like they do together about as well as Ryan Giggs and chest waxing, but this works for us. What do you think?

Get The Look: Louise Redknapp’s Chic Winter Coat

What does one wear to celebrate one’s father-in-law being acquitted of tax evasion? Why, a Burberry Prorsum Coat and Celine Croc Luggage Tote of course.

And that’s exactly what Louise Redknapp did. She and her family celebrated at London’s Zuma restaurant last night and Mrs. R brought out some big guns. That coat is gorgeous and we can’t really discuss how amazing Celine bags are without breaking into hives so we’ll leave it at that.  (Above images via and

Let’s talk about winter coats for a mo.


Cheryl Vieira: Spotted In Lanvin

We love when OG WAGs bring their A game to the red carpet even after their fellas careers have ended (see, also Veronique Zidane and Helen Svedin).

Cheryl Vieira, wife of former Arsenal and France superstar Patrick, attended the Laureus World Sports Awards in London with her husband last night. Mrs. V wore a gorgeous yellow Grecian-style gown from Lanvin’s 2012 Resort collection.

The color is perfecto for her skin tone and we love that she added her own twist with the belt. Pay attention, current WAGs because this is you in ten to fifteen years. And you best be looking this good.

Do you love this dress as much as we do?
