Alex Gerrard & Victoria Beckham: We’ve Seen That Stuff Before

This might be the ultimate in WAG faux pas, Kickettes.
Alex Gerrard attended Elton John’s charity gala in support of his AIDS Foundation tonight wearing the same Julien Macdonald dress that Cheryl Tweedy wore to Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year awards. Of all the gorgeous designer dresses in the world, Alex chose one that we (and perhaps the rest of the entertainment world) have already seen? Why wasn’t the WAG fashion radar alert set on Mrs. Gerrard’s crystal-encrusted BlackBerry? After all, it is a part of her “job” to keep tabs on fashion and trends for her OK! magazine column.
We weren’t huge fans of this dress the first time around and we’re convinced it’s not really possible for anyone to wear this dress well.
Plus, what was Posh playing at, Kickettes? On Wednesday night Victoria Beckham attended a dinner for designer Diane von Furstenburg at Claridge’s Hotel in London and her Giles Deacon mini dress with thigh high boots clothing combo should ring a bell.
Last September, she wore almost the exact same outfit (save for the colour and wet-look) to a New York Fashion Week “Fashion’s Night Out” event in New York City and also dons the black version of this dress in her LG mobile phone adverts.
Previously, we’ve accepted her repeat offending since we understand the need to double up on denim as she’s out and about on business. However, if she’s going to start recycling event ensembles – fully aware that the paps will be out – then we’re going to need an intervention or at least a lifetime supply of mint Aero bars.
Also, thigh high boots for summer? Please don’t try that at home.
