Federico Macheda: Man Bags and Making Out – UPDATED
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.
