Red Carpet Style-Off: Hamburg Hunks & Their Hunnies

We love awards shows that have no meaning, but simply act as a vehicle for an open bar and an excuse to wear a pretty dress. Take the “Couple Of The Year Awards” that were held in Hamburg, Germany last Monday, for example.
On the left is striker Mladen Petrić and his wife and Despina. Mladen’s shiny silver jacket looks like it never stood a chance at the dry cleaners, but Despina looks like a hairball full of sparkly spunk, no? We love her “me and my side pony are with him” snide side-eye, and she appears to have listened to our advice about the jacket potatoes. Smart gal.
To the right we have midfielder Piotr Trochowski and his girlfriend of 7 odd years, Melanie Tiburtius. They won the award for “Best Engaged Couple”. We’re trying to figure out what Melanie is communicating with her hand gesture: one more year before she’s legally entitled to half his earnings? Was the sound system in the gifting suite too loud for her sensitive earlobes? Is she warding off our encroachment on her Jimmy Choo sandals?
Whatever the case, we’re calling this one a draw and faulting the midweek hump for our abnormally indecisive stamp of attire authority.
