Unlike Elen Rives and Frank Lampard, some of the other footballer couples made somewhat of an effort at the White Room fundraiser. We bring you Ashley and Cheryl Cole and John and Toni Terry.
Ashley appears to be wearing polished trousers which possibly double as something he can wrap his leftovers from dinner in at the end of the night; Cheryl looks beautiful as always, but her barnet is beginning to take on a wig-like look. Still, they obviously spent more than four minutes getting ready.
John? Well, aside from the giant canoe feet (see below), we like the all-black look on him; Toni is a healthy shade of tangerine but rather non-descript outside of the peppy shoes. She seems as if she had planned on spending the night in front of the telly with a cuppa and had to whip her bunny slippers off at the last minute when John came downstairs cologned up and ready to roll.
So who wins the style off between these two couples, fellow Kickettes? We’re going with Ashley and Cheryl – they look a bit more put together than the Terrys. Plus, surely those two are much more high maintenance -can’t you picture the two of them fighting for mirror space whilst primping to the latest Girls Aloud single?
This is the last bloody photo and/or mention of Alex Curran’s new perfume.
For at least 5 minutes.
So, here she is, low key as per usual, at her London launch. We don’t care much for the perfume bottle, but quite like the box though, it looks like it would hold some rather fine chocolate truffles or some nice lacey underoos. Notice we have said nothing about the dress. Because to mention the dress would mean we understand it. And we do not.
Before her Liverpool launch, Alex was quite nervous, saying:
“I honestly didn’t think anyone would turn up. I still can’t really accept that anyone would be interested in me and what I do,” she says with a smile. “Why would anyone bother? I’ve been terrified all morning. I thought: Imagine if no-one comes, how embarrassing that would be. People might think I’m always confident, but I’m not, I’m terrible. Steven said to me this morning: ‘it’s your perfume, just be yourself’ but it’s natural to worry about these things, isn’t it?”
Here’s the lovely Coleen McLoughlin out last month at the Gwen Stefani concert in Manchester.
We’re thinking she’s not yet on board with Spanx undergarments. You?
Or, perhaps she’s another hapless victim of the dreaded Spanx-line, where the iron-woven granny pants cut into the stomach after doing their suction-like churchwork elsewhere on the body.
Hair looks good, though.
