Coleen Rooney: A Working Gal’s Uniform
Before you ask, Coleen’s “work” includes promoting things, making appearances, and supporting her hubby at swanky dinners. Throw in a manservant + her credit limit and we will gladly change jobs with her.
First up in the diary was an appearance last Thursday at the Liverpool Hilton for the launch party of local designer Philip Armstrong’s new collection. Coleen has worn Mr. Armstrong’s designs many times before, but, er, not on this occasion.
Instead, she chose a black drapey dress by Halston Heritage (left) to which she added a gold plaited belt. Her “work” for the night likely included schmoozing and cocktail drinking. Le sigh.
On Monday, Col took a trip to open the new Argos store in St. Helens, Merseyside, promoting her jewelery line, Coleen X, (which includes price-conscious charm bracelets, rings, necklaces and watches.) FYI, her outfit on the day (top photo) was not quite in the same “normal/peasant class” price range as her precious metals - a white lace Alice by Temperley dress and a pair of Miu Miu wedges.
Although we like it when WAGs change up their style, one thing we’re really on board with is Coleen’s working gal fashion formula: cinched waist, hair pulled back, killer heels. Defo a work uniform to consider the next time you’re launching a collection, dear readers.
