Style Files: Alex Gerrard & Claudine Keane
Some of our favourite trend mongers were out and about last Thursday, with Alex Gerrard turning unfashionable street tricks as a poster girl for Isabel Marant at brunch in the midmorning. Her top, necklace, bracelets, and horrific trainers were all courtesy of the French designer, which leads us to believe she got a Net-a-Porter gift card for Christmas and, being the fashion sheep that she is, went hog wild with whatever Vogue told her was popular.
But really, those trainers? We know they’re sold out from here to Timbuktu and every fashion editor is in a tizzy over them, but if they can make Alex Gerrard’s phenomenal legs look like sausages then they’re a life threatening problem.
Later that evening, Claudine Keane attended the “Oscar Wilde: Honouring The Irish In Film” event in Santa Monica, California. You would not be wrong to think she looks indistinguishable from every other 10 pence blond in L.A.
Mrs Robbie Keane’s Hervé Léger bandage dress is so tired that we fell asleep whilst writing this. Her obligatory Christian Louboutin heels and Chanel clutch were equally snooze-inducing. We recently voiced our distaste on her Léger wearing, style-lacking appearance at Elie Saab’s Spring Couture show, and since our pleas have fallen on dangly-earring deaf ears, we’re retreating back to our beds now.
Thoughts on the aforementioned blonds dressed at gunpoint, Kickettes? Are we being too harsh in our analysis or not critical enough?
