Red Carpet Ratings: Manchester United

On Tuesday night the Manchester United lads and their WAGs put on their finery and headed to Old Trafford for their annual Player Of The Year awards.

Fash-wise, it’s hard for the fellas to get it wrong in this situation. After all, their night likely consists of putting on the same tux they wear every year, making sure their lady doesn’t hit the bubbly too hard and not saying anything embarrassing when interviewed by the in-house TV channel.

The girls, however, have it much harder. A cracking outfit must be produced or they face ridicule from the masses. (Yes, we mean us.)

Fortunately for Ana Vidic (above) there is no ridicule to be had here. She looks stunning in a floaty blue dress with a killer pair of Jimmy Choo booties and matching clutch. Surely we can amend the F5 to include her too?  She gets top marks from us.

Full list of winners below, some of which have left us feeling bittersweet: After all, is it truly fair to judge one six-pack over another? Thankfully, the universe is a forgiving one.

Yay! Cesc is back on the pitch – he scored in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Bolton. Wonder if he got our congratulatory welcome-back-you-Cescy-boy cookiegram?
