We’re just going to assume that you’re as perplexed by this White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner as we are. So perhaps it’s no surprise that Irina Shayk was there since even Lindsay Lohan was invited.
For just such an occasion, Shayk chose a white silk Yves Saint Laurent jumpsuit with a gold chain belt from the Fall 2011 collection. We think this is a pretty fab look and we love that she didn’t wear a traditional gown and kept the accessories minimal.
What’s up with Ms. Shayk and Mr. Ronaldo, though? Lunch time conversation at Kickette HQ is often speculative of the status of their relationship. Do you think these two are still an item? We know Shayk’s been busy with her Intimissimi Perfect Bra tour and may not have a lot of time to spend in Madrid, but long distance love can only go so far. We’ll dig a little deeper this week.
In the meantime, how do you feel about Shayk’s White House look?
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?

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?

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?

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?

Just days after being immortalized with her own version of the most famous doll in the world, Sylvie van der Vaart went back to her roots (we swear that’s not a hair joke) and did her best Barbie impersonation on the red carpet.
Mrs. VDV attended the Golden Camera Awards in Berlin on Saturday night in a bubble gum pink Escada gown and ten pounds of hair extensions. We’re torn – we loved her short hair, but we always knew the long, blond mane would be back. We’re certain that we love her turquoise accessories though.
If you had your Wheaties this morning, you may recall that this is the same dress that actress Kerry Washington wore to the Met Gala in May of last year. Both the pink and the blue colors are gorgeous and bang on, as they say, since pastels are massive for Spring.
How do you feel about the return of the original Sylvie?

Kickettes, we’re in love with a dress and we don’t care who knows it.
Above is the flawless Helen Svedin with her equally flawless husband candy Luis Figo. The two attended the IWC Top Gun Gala Event at the 22nd High Jewellery Fair in Geneva, Switzerland last night. We would like you to direct your attention to Helen’s dress because we think it’s perfection, must like the rest of the Gucci Resort 2012 collection.
A beigey nude color can be hard for someone with fair skin to pull off, but this works a treat on her. The little peekaboo of chartreuse at the hem is a delightful surprise and will be a very popular color this spring.
You may remember that Nagore Aramburu wore a look from the same collection back in October. Which dress do you prefer? And do you think Helen looks as perfect as we do?

We’ve got to hand it to Leo. If one must go through the tedium of being affirmed the best footballer on the planet for a redonkulous third year in a row, one should have some fun with one’s garments.
To accept his Ballon d’Or, Leo chose a look from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2011 menswear collection. The velvet trousers would’ve sent us over the edge, but we’re glad Leo spared us. It actually looks quite nice with the black trousers, yes?
Purple jackets immediately make us think of the sheer creepy horror that is Willy Wonka, he of chocolate factory fame. If nothing else, Leo’s got his 2012 Halloween costume sorted.
