Hook Up: Yoann Gourcuff and Marie Steiss
It must have been that in a former life we were the type to wear flat shoes. And now we’re being punished.
We’ve been in New York City for 48 hours and have already had our hearts broken by the news that our finest five number 3 footballer, Yoann Gourcuff, is also in our favourite city. And he’s making kissy faces with his new girlfriend, model Marie Steiss. We’ve almost lost the will to stalk, dear readers.
Marie is no ordinary model either. Aside from being French (which automatically makes her at least 48% more chic than the rest of us), she is the daughter of Dominique de Villepin, the former French Prime Minister. One would have to assume she’s well-educated, cultured and nice to sit next to at a dinner party. Marie’s the real deal model-type too, doing catwalks and campaigns for Krizia and Givenchy.
Let us take a moment of silence to reflect on happier moments while we deal with this very challenging time.
