Style Off: WAGs At The Launch of Alex Gerrard For Forever Unique
Alex Gerrard launched her new collection for Forever Unique at the Barton Arcade in Manchester last night. An after party followed at Manchester’s Circle Club and a slew of Northwest soap stars and WAGs turned up to decimate the champagne supply. Lucky.
Alex wore a black asymmetric mini dress from her line with an over-sized clutch and black ankle boots. A cute look, but we can definitely do without that bizarre peacock feather pin that looks like it came from your gran’s “Sunday best” hat. Click through to see how the rest of the ladies fared.
Sheree Murphy, (Hollyoaks actress and wife of Galatasaray’s Harry Kewell), came out sporting a pair of Stella McCartney studded trousers and black jacket. Sure, the trousers just look like tracksuit bottoms with studs, but you can’t go wrong with a Stella blazer. Apparently, Sheree didn’t fash confirm/coordinate with the lady of the hour, as she wore the same boots as Alex.
Chantelle Tagoe (Emile Heskey) and Jessica Lawlor (Stephen Ireland) also couldn’t resist the lure of fashion and free drinks whilst supporting a mate. These two appear to be fast friends after their stint on Come Dine With Me, no?
Chantelle wore a Carven ruffle dress and a pair of Versace booties with mega platforms while Jessica opted for a flowy black dress and peep toe boots. Jessica easily takes this mini-style off as the only thing that comes to mind when looking at Chantelle is cupcake frosting applied before it’s properly set. Cupcake frosting should always be happy and well set. It’s law.
Lastly, Leanne Brown (wife of Manchester United’s Wes) attended. We give her props for being the only one to actually wear something from Alex’s line. She’s got on the studded “Keely leggings” with studded boots and an over-sized black top.
Our take on who looked best: much like the respect shown to a bride on her wedding day, we think none of the girls even dared to try and look better than Alex – we give her the win.
Who do you think wins this red carpet style-off, Kickettes? More importantly, tell us how many crates of bubbly you think they all went through? Mmm. Bubbly.
