We’ve been slow to post on the pics doing the rounds of Irina Shayk’s Autumn/Winter campaign for Replay Jeans. Reason being we’re conflicted.
Yes, Irina’s topless. We can obviously see that. But she’s also wearing fingerless gloves in various colours and textures.
We normally understand these fash-hazards to have no real purpose other than to protect the palms of wannabes falling down nightclub stairs, but once again, we’ve been shown that we don’t know squat about anything. We think we do, but we do not.
As Cristiano’s girlfriend skillfully demonstrates, fingerless gloves are great breast warmers. In the off chance that one’s shirt, scarf or jacket are nowhere to be found, of course.
Kickettes, should we employ these uniquely versatile accessories for our next Friday night outing, or fight them until we break a pinky nail? Please do advise.

Lionel Messi took home the coveted FIFA Ballon d’Or trophy Monday evening, staving off tough competition from Barcelona teammate, Xavi Hernandez, and Real Madrid rival, Cristiano Ronaldo (who was a no-show since his squad is set to do battle with Malaga in the Copa Del Ray today). As we raise our mugs of tea in a congratulatory salute to the talismanic mini-man, we’d also like to divert your attention to the real news at hand here:
