Nagore has her GQMF. So what the hell are you going to do about it, bish? Huh? Image: PacificCoastNews.com.

Here’s Portuguese legend and Kickette fantasy boink buddy Luis Figo at the Estadio da Luz on November 15th. He received a UEFA award for playing in more than 100 international games. Part of his prize pack was this hat.

Still hot? Or would removal and burning be a ‘pre-match’ contractual obligation for you?

Shakira: Walk Of Fame Honours


Pique girlfriend WAG Barcelona

Colombian pop star/Gerard Pique’s on-again girlfriend, Shakira, loved the Hollywood Walk of Fame Star that she received on 8th of November so much she was compelled to lay next to it on the dirty sidewalk. The singer’s parents were at the ceremony as well, but showed restraint when asked to join in their daughter’s unsanitary fun.

Cristiano Ronaldo: So Full Of Win


Sleek, glossy, edgy where necessary but with the kind of subtle, smooth finish that betrays serious, unbridled wealth. The boot isn’t bad, either. Image: REUTERS/Sergio Perez.

Nope, he’s not shilling another pair of retina bothering football boots. In this photograph, the goofy grin, perma-tan and gel-tastic hairdo have gathered to collect the European Golden Shoe Award; a boot shaped lump of metal handed to the player who scored the most goals in the European Leagues during the previous season.

Ronaldo or Leo Messi, in other words.

We bet you didn’t think it was one of his new cleat designs anyway. This is a significantly more sober colourway than the ones Crispy tends to choose for himself.

Congratulations anyway, lovely. All you need to do now is make room for it in your manbag.

Arjen & Bernadien Robben: Well Suited & Bumping Along

We never pegged Bayern Munich and Netherlands star Arjen Robben as a polka-dotted-bow-tie-and-matching-pocket-square kind of guy. We like when we’re surprised like this.

Arjen and his pretty (pregnant) wife Bernadien attended the German GQ Men Of The Year Awards on Saturday night in Berlin. He was honoured as the International Sportsman Of The Year while we were finally made aware of the couple’s impending bundle of joy. We’re all kinds of jealous over her gold sequined column gown, amazing Lady Dior clutch, and ability to look fresh and dewy while pregnant.

For the Arjen admirers out there – any idea when his wifey is due? And what do all of you think of the man’s sartorial statement here?
