Red Carpet Review: United For Unicef

Last night, Manchester United held their annual United For Unicef charity dinner at Old Trafford with a bevvy of sport and soap stars in attendance.

A request? Please take a moment to check in with the macho-man-of-the-moment pictured above, the darling Mr. Dimitar Berbatov. Then respond:

Which of the following three scenarios is most likely to have occurred prior to Berba’s arrival on the red carpet:

1. After scoring an insane five goals against Rovers on Saturday, Dimitar went on a 24 hour bender which involved consuming the amount of whiskey equal to the gross domestic product of a developing nation, waking up in a dumpster behind a Gap seconds/sample shop and quickly compiling a “formal” ensemble that would double up for his speaking engagement at the Tall People Can Wear Soft Stuff & Still Feel Be Manly event later;

2. Drank the blood of ten virgins, had a ceremony for his formidable widows peak and emerged from his Batcave ready to par-tay;

3. Please. This is The Continental. He will wear corduroy trousers and trainers to a black tie event if he pleases. That’s how he rolls, seen?

FYI: There are no wrong answers. There were, however, several well-dressed people there. Click through to see our top three couples.

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic and his wife Ana kept their title of Hottest Couple in Football alive and well last night.

Ana’s LBD looked perfect paired with a little fur jacket and a red Louboutin clutch (with matching nails and lips, natch).


Michael and Louise Owen brought their best Blue Steel gazes. Louise (mother of four, BTW) wore an Antonio Berardi LBD with bronze coloured heels and a matching clutch.

We can’t recall the last time we saw Michael on a football pitch. Perhaps he’s been perfecting his Le Tigre pose for the next red carpet outing?

Wes Brown and his wife Leanne also looked lovely. Leanne gets major snaps from us for her pretty lace overlay dress and for showing off her gorgeous gams in some fierce Fendi heels while pregnant. She is currently expecting the couple’s third child. Congrats!

Who was your best dressed on the night, Kickettes? Is there any excuse for Berbatov’s crime against fashion, sensibility, and humanity?

    With eyes like that Berba get's away with his outfit.
    Love Leanne Browns dress, she is lovely, but it would have looked better with tights

  3. sheila says:

    All i can say about that picture is yuck. Berb looks awful there. I just don't see what all the fuss is about with him…

    • Jilly says:

      i didnt get it either until I started following Dirty Tackle's The Continental feature blog on him… then I was enlightened by the charm that is the berba. hahahha

  4. C16 says:

    Oh come on!!! He killed it with that outfit and gothic look!!! :D
    Berva can do whatever he wants as far as I'm concerned… I'd let him do whatever he wants after scoring 5 goals.

    • C16 says:

      And I totally misspelled Berbatov! Studying and check the internet at the same time isn't good.
      And damn Ana Vidic!!! Work it girl!!!!

  5. Caitlin says:

    Although I'm not normally a fan of his, I have to admit that Berbatov is looking rather lush… ;-)

    Ana and Louise both look gorgeous, but I think Leanne doesn't have the right legs for that dress. Sorry.

  6. lilygold says:

    Louise Owen is gorgeous, really lovely looking and naturally so. Leanne looks awful, cheap and tacky. Unless you have legs like Giselle Bundchen cover chunky knees with tights,only my opinion of course. Berby looks dead on his feet, scruffy bugger!

  7. MrsFigo says:

    Berba looks gorgeous <3

  8. Lashes says:

    Is it just me or is Louise Owens clutch a HORSE!? And Owen still holding his phone and keys in his hand that's a no no. You have pockets god dammit!
    All the black is a bit boring so Leanne has to win for the dress, but Ana gets point for being cute.

  9. charli88 says:

    These wags and their shoes!! Sooo infair!

  10. aninjasdream says:

    Obviously no. 2. I always always always felt Berba was vampire-ish and Chicharito was bride-ish. Lol.

  11. Leya_S says:

    Too much black!!!!!
    I know black is easy peasy, but sometimes I wish ppl would mix it up a bit.
    That being said everyone looks great….

    Ha-HA! I bet you thought I was talking about you, too, Berbatov. Unfortunately this Berba-beauty does not like your "I swear-I-didn't-wear-this-last-night-and-that-smell-is-not-mayonnaise" look…

  12. xbabyshakesx says:

    hmmm? where's the sexy pictures of Chicharito in his suit???

    *waits patiently for chicha goodies*

  13. where are the rest of the players??

  14. MissEstonia says:

    I actually don't like Leanne's dress, she looks like she's wearing a nightgown. But the shoes are soooo hot! <3 I love them! And Ana's shoes…are they YSL? They're absolutely beautiful!

  15. snowy says:

    Berba's got the same shifty hands-in-pockets stance, inappropriate attire, and red it's-saturday-i-had-a-late-one-last-night eyes that the 23 year old guys always have at my office christmas party :)

    The Owens are such a gorgeous couple.

      I forgot…Dimi's hair and makeup courtesy of HBO's True Blood

      • LosAngeleno says:

        LOL! So true! Though Berba's definitely auditioning for some sort of guest appearance. Love them both BTW– and congrats to B. on those 5 goals!

  17. Care says:

    I'm just thrilled Berba continues to attend these things solo. I would not be able to deal if he actually showed up with a significant other!

  18. Tanya says:

    Well I’m in love with the Bulgarian Dracula/Andy Garcia-ish man so he could wear a bloody plastic bag to anything he wants. The first scenario is the one most likely because he looks a little hungover.

  19. elcynico says:

    Does anyone know how much older Leanne is than Wes?

  20. Gill says:

    I never fully understood all the Ana Vidic love on Kickette, but in this photo she is so cute and stylish. I get it now *seal of approval*

    And Berba gets a pass, whatever he's wearing. When you're a 5-goal-in-one-game BAMF, you can wear what you like, son!

    • Gill says:

      …ok, maybe not 'stylish' per se with what looks like a faux fur jacket?? Anyways, super cute and rocking your own style so well. This gets the seal of approval ;-)

  21. @AgnesWonka says:

    Dimi is hot even wearing a plastic bag!!!

  22. Maribel says:

    Berba deserves to party hard to celebrate his FIVE goals. RM needed HIM today. Sigh. All the MU boys (and gals) look fab.

  23. Vida and Ana of course. Smokin'!!!!!

    If Berbatov hadn't scored five goals on Saturday, in this get-up, he'd be a slob who obviously doesn't give a sh*t.. But since he did score five goals on Saturday, Berbatov is an artist, obviously bordering on mad genius. Context is everything.

    Congratulations to everyone for raising funds for Unicef and looking fabulous doing it.

  24. CuppyCake says:

    In a way I'm kinda jealous of Vida, I mean Ana is just too cute for words!

    Berba still looks stunning in that pic despite the ill-fitting jacket. He could wear a bin liner to a fancy dinner and get away with it! Sigh… <3

  25. LuvinBale says:

    The Vidic family for the win! Ana is gorgeous and I covet her shoes and her husband.

  26. Taskeen says:

    I think Berba's got the swagger to carry that shiz off at a formal do lol twas a little too casual but still…

  27. Alex Samuel says:

    The Vidic's are defo the hottest couple, and they have such cute children! I was carfeul not to say the cutest because…well, we've all seen David Villas' little girls. As for Berbatov, I WANT to say number 1 or 3 but…
