Summer Rankings: EPL WAGs Style Study
After the epically entertaining circus that descended on Baden-Baden for the 2006 World Cup, it would have taken a miracle from the Gods of Cristal to give us a repeat performance from the English WAGs for the 2010 event.
As we all know, the GoC were clearly cross with us for the amount of champagne spillage that occurred at Kickette HQ over the years, and as such, there was 1. Nary a table danced on; 2. No outrageous shopping sprees and; 3. South Africa did not have to start selling endangered wildlife in exchange for crates of booze.
Since we were terribly deprived of any decent WAG shenanigans at this year’s World Cup, let’s check in with what a few of the EPL WAGs have been up to this summer, shall we?
Pictured above, Alex Gerrard has returned from her hols in Portugal and Ibiza with hubby Steven, and is sporting what we must (shamefully) admit is a killer tan. She headed out to restaurant San Carlo in Liverpool for a meal with some girlfriends on Saturday night, and wore a Temperley London tunic tucked into on-trend denim shorts with a studded clutch from Topshop and a pair of KG by Kurt Geiger platform sandals. As per usual, her legs look about 10 miles long and we love the outfit. Fair play, Alex. Grade: A
Coleen Rooney and husband Wayne are in Las Vegas, staying at the ultra posh Wynn hotel. Since it’s center-of-the-sun hot in Vegas right now they’ve been spending a lot of time at the pool. Coleen looks like she’s working on reaching C-Ron levels of mahogany; Wayne continues to be practically transparent.
Coleen’s post-baby bod and cute bikini are fantastic, but we do worry her pursuit of the perfect tan will result in a hefty wrinkle-cream regimen in the future. Throw on a cute cover up, luv, it’s 800 degrees in Vegas! Grade: B+

Christine Bleakley in doing her thing in London this week, and has produced something of a lackluster showing in the sartorial stakes. Kind of a surprise, really, as C.B is someone who is usually worthy of our style snaps.
The beige waterfall cardigan is all a bit… meh with a side of bah for our tastes, and the denim, albeit inoffensive, isn’t interesting enough to make us sit up and pay attention. While cute accessories minimize the damage somewhat, we can’t help but feel that Christine really can do better. Grade: C-
Michela Quattrociocche, (or Quatthehellishersurname as she is fondly known at Kickette HQ), girlfriend of Liverpool’s Alberto Aquilani, keeps cool in the sweltering Italian heat in a D&G Fiorucci tank top, denim cut offs and a giant pink Balenciaga handbag.
We love her relaxed style, shiny tresses and Wayfarer sunglasses. Almost there, but not quite enough to beat the reining Queen of Scouseland, Alex. Grade: A-
