Djibril Cisse: Dude Looks Like A Lady

As memorable moments in fashion go, discovering a photograph of Djibril Cisse arriving for an awards ceremony dressed in a skirt is up there.
We saw only one solve for this scenario, Kickettes, and it involved throwing open the doors to the Mayhem & Fruit Beverages Suite, a day’s supply of Hi-C Ecto Cooler Juice and Yum Yums, plus the dynamic duo of KSquared.
Unfortunately, by the time the rest of the staff discovered how they smuggled a litre of vodka into the suite and were using the Hi-C juice as a mixer, it was too late. Here are their observations, or at least the ones we could read.
Djibril was apparently attending the STATUS magazine ‘Men of the Year Awards’, when he was pictured in the aforementioned swinging thing. The fact that its owner/creator was identified as Jean Paul Gaultier makes this all the more intriguing.
It was at this point that one of the slightly less inebriated Kellys (your guess is as good as ours), confirmed that the skirt did indeed move and while Djibril has intimated on several occasions that he is indeed a style vacuum, KSquared kind of liked it. They admired Djibril’s tattoos, fawned over his hat collection and offered kudos for his, er… does that say ‘protein based, salted bar snacks’?
Hmm. That’s weird.
Anyhoo, speculation abounded as to why Djibril wanted to make a conscious clothing assassination like this right now. Thought-starters included:
- D.C. is a big fan of Eddie Izzard.
- He is in secretly besotted with Elen Rives and wished to send her a fashionable love message only someone of her eclectic taste could understand. (Even if this were remotely possible, Elen would not be interested. Djibril is nowhere near orange enough for her taste.)
- He is making a statement of manliness prior to his side’s (Panathinaikos) make or break Super League fixture against Olympiakos at the weekend, as the press are speculating.
Any of the above are possible, we suppose. All we have to say is, the possibilities for uh… access are as myriad as they are exciting and far beyond anything the standard short tent has to offer. You think?
As for KSquared, they bolted as soon as the Suite door was opened. If you see them, please return to us. In a funny way, we miss ‘em.
