Red Carpet Arrival: Theo Walcott & Melanie Slade

Theo Walcott and Melanie Slade have never really done much for us. He’s always seemed awkwardly cool while she’s always been on the pop tartlet cusp.

Recall the time when Mel would go out in public with minimal make on, in clothes from H&M. Then fast forward to Wednesday night’s London premiere of the ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ movie and you can see how she’s gradually morphed into the Chanel-toting, overly smokey-eyed WAG standing before us.

Much like the type of woman she once lamented.

On one hand, we want our WAGs to break from the chains of their stereotypical personas and run free through the streets demanding natural nails, flat shoes and library cards. But if we’re honest, like most things in life that are pure and perfect in their ultimate creation (fluffy bunnies, large flawless diamonds, etc), we don’t want to change the non-job having, salary-rinsing, heavily tanned and made-up-with-shellack machine that is the modern WAG life. Because, well, it’s fabulous.

Mel, although last night’s look is not something we’re rushing to duplicate on our fresh faces, please know that we empathise with the demands of your newly-established WAG routine. Shopping 10 hours a day is a very worthy and challenging job, as is drinking champagne and Vodka-Red Bulls until you fall over. Honorable, valuable work, damn it.

  4. Jill says:

    All she did was dress up for the even they were going to. I would have, too! She looks gorgeous, except the eye make up. Way too much! And Theo looks handsome as always. They've always been such an adorable couple!

    I love this couple! They look so cute and REAL together.
    She's amazing, so beautiful.

    I'd have killed to be at the "Breaking dawn" premiere, to jump over Rob-Patz xD

  6. April says:

    I like the cut of the dress… the eyeliner seems to be a theme thing. No? I figured because of the movie premiere she was attending, she maybe decided to do something vampy.

    Ugly dress :s

  8. jen says:

    they're both so pretty, it's ridiculous! and they seem sweet!

    black eyeliner and blue eyes go very well together–when done right.
    she and Alex Gerrard need to get new make-up artist,
    there is nothing wrong with lots of make-up, as long as it's disguised well.

    LOOOOL theo + breaking dawn premiere so cuuute…i just found that funny..ignore me.

  11. liz says:

    not the proper eyeliner design for her eyes & i love the dress but not on her. I don't think black is her color. I would have loved to see a different color on her.

  12. Lauren_BCN says:

    Theo is FIIIIIINEEE !!! :-) ))

    Glad she's stepping up her wardrobe when the occasion calls for it. At the appropriate time, any girl would love to dress up. I know I love to be in my jeans and shirt on a day to day basis, but when a fun event comes up, I love to dress it up as well.

    Just shows she's still a normal girl who knows how to dress it up. Love the liner, brings out the brightness of her eyes. The only thing I question is the material of the otherwise gorgeous figure shaping gown.

    Keep her Theo! You'll be hard pressed to find one better!

  14. Sergz says:

    Her eyes are GORGEOUS! And so is Theo, but you already knew that.

  15. Kristina says:

    Kickette, just because she dresses up for a premier doesn't mean she has changed her attitude towards being a wag. Anyway, they are very cute together. Maybe she has overdone eyeliner a tad, though.

  16. mata says:

    I'm not crazy about the fabric of the dress or the eye makeup but generally I think she looks very attractive and it's nice that they look like a genuinely happy and real couple.

  17. Carolina says:

    I like her dress!!

  18. Lulu says:

    Just to let you know, Melanie doesn’t just shop 10 hours a day. She has recently graduated with a degree in Physiotherapy and was a model student.

  19. Hot4Spurs says:

    This is the best I've seen Melanie look! I do hate it when these girls try to seem all bright eyed and innocent and say "oh, I don't want to be associated with wags". Well, it's too late for that. I will admit that I do tend to like the wags like Melanie, Sheree Murphy, and Nicola Carragher. They can show up and look fab when they need to, but they seem to be less flashy and papped unlike some of the others.

  20. Miss XOXO says:

    I love this couple…They complete each other.

  21. Grace says:

    waaaay to much eyeliner…
