    Ivone is my spirit animal. I love that she's not a Barbie like the rest of them.

  2. Ben says:

    Raul is the best

  3. kirish says:

    I need to see a different shot of her hair.. what is going on there?

  4. Sam says:

    I lika Rauls outfit. But is that tattoos around her thighs? Really tacky.

  5. Leya_S says:

    Easily one of my fave couples. They are the anti-Nagore & Xabi. And by that I mean that both couples are awesome in very different ways.

  6. adi says:

    He looks yummy and the color of his suit/her dress is gorgeous!

  7. Scoop says:

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA, he's trying WAY too hard to look cool. And if you look like you are trying too hard, you don't. Simple.

  8. FloraJane says:

    They look amazing! They are totally rocking a hipster 70s vibe. She's got that Chrissy Hynde hair cut and he looks like he's in the coolest band you've ever heard of, or a really highbrow mixed-media artist whose work you don't really understand but really wish you did. LOL They're awesome!

    • Stush Baby says:

      I love these two. They just WORK! Ivone is so different from most other WAGs with her tatts, a healthy physique and her own style. Raul looks foine here too. So glad the Meireles' came to LDN :)

    • April says:

      She does have the Chrissie hair! She does it justice, I think. I like these two for each other; they compliment one another well.

  9. littlegreenpea says:

    I can't fight the fact that I like his look. He does hipster well.

  10. bri_saldana says:

    This doesn't surprise me at all….as a mater of fact Raul will take ANY self proclaimed hipster to school. OLD SCHOOL that is ;)

  11. Gladys says:

    Wow! They're straight out of Vice magazine, these two. Though I'm not a fan of neck tattoos, I'm lovin' Raul more and more. (I think it was dancing with Chris Cohen to the Mata song that pushed me over the edge.) Michael Essien looked pretty cute at the event, as well. As for Nando, it seems, from the photos, that a lot of players didn't go.

    • Dols says:

      I absolutely adore that video of him dancing to the Mata song!! My love for Raul just tripled watching it!

  12. Carvivlie says:

    I love how they are matching. His tie looks the color of her dress. You have to admit they look pretty fierce for a footballing couple. They totally own it!

  13. Guest2 says:

    Take the WAG out of her shoes and you're left with a very nice looking man and a workable pair of shoes.

  14. Carolina says:

    I'm really surprised that I like Raul's beard! Finding myself attracted to him all of a sudden!

  15. IrishBlue says:

    Not liking her tattoos! Raul's suit is kinda sorta ok but the specs and the shoes just aren't doing it for me.

  16. emma says:

    one of the sexaay-est couples in the prem. and all of their matching tattoos are simply mind-blowing…
    on another note, i'd like to say it wasnt such a nice move from nando not to show up. he has to establish a good relationship with his colleagues and not distance himself even more from the club.

    • Carolina says:

      Nando didn't show? :(

      • Kat22 says:

        Well, apparently a guy who bid £15,000 for a training session with Drogba joked that he should give it to Torres instead.

        So maybe it's a good job he didn't go.

    • mata says:

      Maybe he was sick. Maybe he had a sick child. Why assume the worse? From what I can see Torres has a great relationship with colleagues – Luiz, Mata, etc.

      • tessa says:

        Because Torres never shows up to support his teammates at these types of events? This is definitely not the first time he has been a no show

        • April says:

          How do you know that he was specifically invited? There are others that didn't go. I didn't see it reported that Mata made it… nor Luiz. No criticism of them? They generally are good at mixing it up with their teammates. Actually, it was mostly the "old guard" that went. And Chelsea FC didn't even report that Meireles was in attendance, so maybe he wasn't there for the entire event himself.

          This is just such a silly thing to bring up- Drogba could care less if Torres shows up or not. Not to mention a "no-show" is for someone that RSVP'd that they were going and then didn't. Not when someone you hoped to catch a glimpse of in the tabloids didn't make an appearance.

    • Mirella says:

      He wasn't the only Chelsea player who missed this, was he?
      Nando and Olalla usually don't go to such events, they didn't in the past, so why should they start now? To prove he's best friends with Drogba or because people love to overanalyze everything he does or doesn't do on the pitch as well as off it?

      • anon says:

        well considering how his chelsea career is going, and the rumours always circulating it wouldn't hurt to show some camaraderie

        • Mirella says:

          That's exactly what I meant. You suggest he should let his picture be taken just to make a statement, because of rumours and his career is going down steadily. He can (and should) show camaraderie in training and matches! Let him live his private life the way he prefers!

          • anon says:

            i'm just saying it wouldn't hurt him to once in awhile hang out with his teammates outside of training, especially when everyone else makes an effort.

            • April says:

              He does. There's talk that he cooks for them and eat's out with them. Heck, he's gotten his hair done with Terry and Mata. It's silly to assume he doesn't do those things just because he's not playing well. And just because some of the guys show up at the charity event doesn't mean that they all hang out otherwise. Let's remember, just because this isn't the training ground or a match doesn't mean this is a private affair- this was an event with cameras and tabloids present. This was hardly a hang-out.

      • April says:

        Agreed. In my other comments I come off as pretty defensive about Torres, but it is less that and more defensive of celebrities having the right to a private life and not having to put on a show to prove anything for fans or having their every move picked apart.

    • Kat22 says:

      I hear what you're saying, but after everything that's been going on, facing the media is probably the last thing he wants to do now.

      • April says:

        Definitely. People seem to forget or not realize that The Sun and other papers like that were in attendance. The papers that basically rag on him every day and would like nothing more than to harass him and his family at such an event, with questions on his future and why he isn't scoring and crap. If anything, he probably did Drogba a favor by not making an appearance, as that could have detracted from what the night was really about.

  17. Dols says:

    I find the very hot together ;) Those glasses make Raul a bit hipsterish… But I still find him HOT!

  18. Guest2 says:

    Take away the WAG, the fur, the dress, and the tats and you really have a rather nice looking man and a gorgeous pair of shoes.

  19. RedDevil says:

    Raul Meireles, LMFAO much?

  20. gigi says:

    I look at the tats and that PETA-bait outfit and I can't help but think she'd look more apt walking alongside a Russian mobster.

  21. Jayy says:

    Yet more fur *cries* When will these WAGs learn!

  22. Annika says:

    I don't know but I kind of love Raul's outfit.

  23. Mumtaz says:

    i don't care about their outfit. i always love those players who look like a cruel man on the pitch, yet just a family man at home. uniquely beautiful :')

  24. Amal says:

    Raul looks like a bass player for an electro indie band. Ivone looks like, well, a WAG.
