Style Off: Coleen v Alex


Is it a coat? Is it a cape? Does it possess super powers that allow WAGs to queue jump at Cricket in a single bound?

Both Coleen McLoughlin and Alex Curran-Gerrard have been spotted rocking this black Batman/Darth Vader inspired look.  Who works it better?

Our vote: we hate it on both of them, but if we’re forced to choose, we go with Coleen.

    Note to ‘Blair’,

    Most girls from liverpool are very fashionable and as a result will end up owning the same clothes.

    Don’t know if you remember alex’s major first picture of her in muk luk boots, juicy trackie etc but coleen was papped a couple of days later in much the same outfit. See the following link:;=/images?q=alex+curran+thousands&gbv=2&svnum=10&hl=en

    If you go to Liverpool, you will notice everybody pretty much dresses the same, shopping at cricket, the rest of the cavern walks and the new met quarter.

    It happens so deal with it, think both of them look lovely alex is rocking the cape that little bit better though! 

    Have just bought the same one myself care off Cricket! Woo hoo!

    I think Alex looked better with that coat
    And also Coleen wasn’t good.
    But i can’t like everything about her, her behaviour, and also her attitude.
    And WAG’s are too pitty for showing something that not worthy like this..
    But in this case, i have to say that Allex is the winner….

    I’d go for Alex. The cape nicely complements her innate evilness <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    I have been trying to figure out what these capes remind me of. Is it Batman/Batgirl? Lord Vader? The Shadow? The Rise of the Phoenix?

    Nothing seems quite right. Instead I think we are witnessing the birth of a new Superhero! The Waginator! She brings pink champagne and credit cards (someone else pays the bills on) to those in need. Faster than a speeding fashion trend. More powerful than common sense. She can leap into VIP areas with a single bound. 

    As far who wears the Cape of the Waginator better? I’d have to say Colleen seems more likely to help people who are running low on champagne. Alex would keep it all for herself. She’s the Anti-Waginator.

    Women with so much money who can’t seem to find a single piece of original clothing…it’s sad.

    Can they get a designer of their own? Yes, they can.

    I’m voting for No-One! wink

    I have to finally say it, at first I thought Alex was hot, but then the pictures started getting closer and closer to her face and I realized that she was actually really gross.  I love Steven Gerrard, he’s my favorite player and I support Liverpool, but she’s actually starting to bring him down a little bit in my book.  Her perfume ads are so tacky, her orange skin is gross, she always looks cheap, she has bushy eyebrows and just a touch of Down’s in her face. He could do much better- overall she’s just too fake.  Sorry.

    I’ll say Alex looks better but only because she has a better accessory with Steven Gerrard. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    The cape is hideous, but I can see why a WAG would find it handy to have a built in mirror.

  8. dani says:

    i have to say alex she has a better figure and plus it drowns coleen

    so alex has my vote

    I THink Coleen Looks Better In It x

  10. Ella says:

    Coleen is way too short to be wearing this thing, and with the high boots she’s cut in half in two places.

    Could be interesting to see Alex’ whole outfit, but seeing as the paparazzis didn’t do their job, I’ll give her this one.

  11. Anna says:

    Blair makes a good point: Why?

    In addition, may I point out that the last time I saw someone rock a goth-cape successfully was…er…never. So, fail and fail.

  12. brandy says:

    As always, I have to agree with Robin and TammyV – they are my women of wit and logic and usually say exactly what I am feeling! Got to this one late so I just get to give props and agree!

    Bad capes! Bad WAGs who chose to wear them! BAD! BAD! BAD!

  13. LoveLamps says:

    I hate to say anything nice about Alex, but I give her this one.  Coleen is just not right for this look.

  14. Elise says:

    I’m a big fan of the cape/coat if they are well proportioned, but it just looks too big and overwhelming on Coleen.  I’m not sure how tall she is, but I think these coats work best on taller people.  I think Alex is about 5’8”.  Also, because they are rather a bit theatrical, I think you should go for sophisticated instead of casual with them.  I can’t tell what else Alex is wearing, but it looks more dressy, so…all of that to say- Alex wins. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Im Going With Coleen Too <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    STOPP THE SHINEY!!!!  Just stop it. I am done! 

    Forgodsake if you see your reflection in your clothes or it sparkles like the top of the Chrystler building it is an automatic NO.

    If I had to choose though, Alex. She has the don’t mess with me/my man/my money/whatevs icy-bitch stare this throwback to the Sith lord’s Empire.

  17. Blair says:

    Coleen and Alex should branch out apparently. This is the second time in less than a month that they have been spotted in the same duds.  Totally and utterly disappointing…


  18. paris says:

    Alex is the winner I think it’s a hard outfit to pull off but Alex does it with style. Also clothes will always suit her more because she has a better figure.

  19. LIV says:


    alex wins hands down

    she takes a style and makes it her won but sometimes she doesnt look as good but who looks great 24/7 if u saw her walkin down the street u would think she looked amazing compared 2 every1 one else. She is really pretty and steven is a lucky guy 2 have a good looking girl like her

    she is a good mum(of what i ave read) and really loves steven if she has had affairs whos buisness is it but hers and stevens. the media make mountains out of molehills and cause so much pain(look at heather mills)if she does want to do photo shoots and give interviews or sell storys she can…. its no1 elses life

    when people leave nasty comments saying shes a drag queen or a gold digger it really enoyes me.

    if u dont know them dont slag them of.
