Federico Macheda: Man Bags and Making Out – UPDATED

Kiko is in wuv!

Reasons why this photo of Man Utd mega-talent Federico Macheda and his new(?) girlfriend is all kinds of fantabulous:

1. His LV man bag and Gucci trainers. If you’ve ever wondered who Gucci makes trainers for, it’s European footy players. If you’ve ever wondered who Gucci makes car interiors for, it’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Good try, Kiko, but you need to up your designer logo game. Perhaps some Fendi logo trousers with a matching tattoo?

2. Their coordinating brown leather bombers. Not the kind you buy at the Florence leather market, obvi.

3. The hair. All Of It. His head – it’s cleanly shaven, we can see scalp, but yet there are spikes, too? This is exquisite. Plus, the hairline is looking a tad OCD to us. His eyebrows – is that threading? Waxing? Plucking? We won’t be able to rest until we know more.

4. Her “I’m on my way to collecting my WAG cash prize. Damn it, I’m finally on my way,” facial expression/brief moment of relief/knowledge that the stiletto pain is worth it.

FYI, they’re waiting for a taxi and just before this photo was taken, they were totally, like, making out. Oh, to be young, in love and covered in designer logos. Kiko, you the man!

UPDATE: This is Federico’s fiance, Martina Minafra. They were apparently still “together” when he was dating Sophie Houghton. Say what? Cheers CB!

UPDATED 2: Re: the debate over the definition of the word, “fidanzato”: although we concur that it can also mean “long-term gal”, our ability to engage in lengthy discussions over the different meanings of “Gucci” and “Fendi” put us in comfortable Italian lingo analysis status. In any case, Kiko hinted at said relationship this past June when he denied being with glamour gal Sophie and confirmed his relationship – albeit 3 days old at that point – with “a normal girl.” We’ll let you be the judge. Plus, there’s the ring.

  2. autumnmaple101 says:

    He’s got a fiance and he’s how old again???

  3. Venice says:

    Italians often use the word ‘fidanzata’ for a girlfriend – but it doesn’t have to mean they’re engaged yet.

  4. Boston Red says:

    Oh FFS. Eighteen year olds don't need fiancees. Knock it off, Kiko.

  5. I like him as a player but I cannot get over his horrible hair. Nasty, just nasty.

  6. Avenath says:

    Nay on all counts!!

  7. NinyaC says:

    He looks like a goon.

  8. clare tatterton says:

    thats not his new girlfriend thats his fiancee called martina minafra :) they were together when he was with sophie houghton :)

  9. Julia says:

    His looks are sort of… i dunno. But he's not good looking, that's for sure. AND that bag just sucks.

  10. Jane says:

    give the poor guy a break. if he is happy who cares!

  11. Lilly says:

    Kickette, why didn’t you upload pics of them….you know, making out??I am disappointed!here’s what’s even more disappointing:kiko has adopted CR style in EVERYTHING!clothes and being all over the place with his WAGs.people reject Ronaldo because of that and kiko’s going to be a whole lot worse ‘cuz he’s only 18 and he’s already making out on the street(beaches are acceptable, btw)so technically, kiko’s only warming up…yikes!!

  12. Filthygorgeous says:

    I think he is comforting her due to her distress over the fact his eyebrows are better than hers. I feel her pain. I once went to a beautician who made me eyebrows look like I was in some Latino female gang!

    It's either that or she's got that self-satisfied grin having realised that she is snuggling up to her cash cow. Go on and wave your "golddigger-and-proud" flag girl!

  13. Dutchlovesvermaelen& says:

    the hair is a big FAIL, its like he dipped his head in the bleedin frying pan

    the clothes are a FAIL, and dont get me started on his shoes

  14. Hayley says:

    He looks as though he just dipped his Head into a deep fryer!! A reincarnation of cristiano ronaldo in my opinion. I find the way he dresses and his wag both to be very repulsive and unattractive…

  15. kathmcp says:

    If they were just making out then might I suggest that is some strategic and well thought out manbag placement :)

  16. shay says:

    They must go for his and her eyebrow waxes. He may be trying to take on Cris’ dubious fashion sense, but his face ruins the effect. Bleh. Not cute.

  17. Ella says:

    I like Kiko on the pitch. But seeing him in civilian clothes is certainly disconcerting. And he doesn't have CR's face or body to make up for his bad fashion choices. Also, poor Kiko is only 18 and we've gone through bad clothing phases.

  18. FootballerChick43-"Mrs.Ballack" says:

    I hate the Gucci trainers. I really, really do. The manbag… okay. I can tolerate it. If he must.

    She looks alright. Won’t fuss about it.

    This whole article made my week. Seriously.

  19. carly says:

    I tried not to leave a first comment that was too negative so I came back later just to say: EW!!

  20. MissEstonia says:

    Dear lord. The trainers, alright. But the man bag? And the WAG? She is nothing extraordinary, if you ask me. I know 4 million girls who could look exactly like that if they dressed up in that outfit and made a stupid face for the camera, lol!
    I do NOT find him attractive. Not even remotely. But he is my team’s player so I have to love him at least a little.

  21. Kristen says:

    Dude he looks statuesque in my opinion. He's probly got the stature, okay of course, he does. He has the big nose/naturally pursed lips/high cheekbones. Statues also probably had ultra groomed eyebrows. Just grow his hair out to a sea of curls and he's good to go.

  22. Katie says:

    Didn't he come from poverty? I say he's doing well. He's young. There's room to grow. His ladyfriend here seems to have herself together; there is hope. The Chris Eagles c. 2004 hair is not a good look but if Eagles could shake it perhaps Kiko will too.

    WAG is pretty; a bit orange and bit cholo-browed but pretty.

  23. aristeia says:

    Avoiding the hair prickles, what a wonderful profile you have Kiko. That's how we do in Rome, baby.

  24. Sara says:

    He looks like such a tool. And according to his u20 coach he acts like one too.

    He's too preened greasy and not hot. How is this attractive?

  25. Baby Freya says:

    And Kiko's new gal seems to have a ring on her ring finger……hmmmm.

  26. Merel says:

    Caroline Celico anyone? This girls looks a bit like her.

    Anyway, lay of the tanning sweetheart. You make Alex look pale. And the LV man bag and Gucci shoes? Blegh. Footballers don't have style because they have too much money and spend it on mediocore brands.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, where are you and what have you done to this poor teenager?

  27. Liz (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    I completely agree BR…. Completely.

  28. Baby Freya says:

    Damn, that totally screws up my plan of being his WAG! But his girlfriend is really pretty….I totally hate what he's wearing though, certain items of clothing should not be allowed outside in public view, he seems to be wearing all of them. And his eyebrows are neater than mine….that's never reassuring in a bloke.

  29. Boston Red says:

    He needs an intervention. Immediately.
