Sylvie van der Vaart: Dreams In Purple

Google Translate has provided us with some gems over the years. Calling Yulia Voronin’s leopard jumpsuit of infamy a “stupid tiger costume” is certainly our favorite, but one that resulted from a description of Sylvie van der Vaart’s dress above make us chuckle just as much: Purple Mullet. It’s not inaccurate.

If you are unfamiliar with the word mullet, let us inform you that it’s a hair style that is long in the back and short in the front. It can be seen on many footballers from the 80s and is mimicked by the style of Sylvie’s dress here.

Mrs. VDV attended the Dreamball in Berlin on Friday night (sans Rafa) and wore this purple taffeta confection by Basler with Christian Louboutin “Picks and Co” heels.

This may surprise one and all, but we don’t hate this. The dress is a bit over the top, but she looks great in it and the colour is lovely. The styling is perfect (those shoes!) and her make-up is not the usual false eyelash raccoon eye extravaganza it usually is. Dare we say this is the prettiest Sylvie has looked in a while? We dare.

What do you think? Purple mullet yay or purple mullet nay?

    As a rule, mullet dresses are a no. But this one isn't so bad. It's a bit too poofy but it looks really nice on her. I like that she kept the rest of the look toned down, as well.

    SHE looks gorgeous. Less orange.

    The dress on the other hand…

    I don't think she was using tanner last summer, as she spent most of her summer at the Spanish beach…. the dress is not my kind of taste…. but it seems to fit her!

    I love it.. the dress floor length and that color would totally overpower her. With this shape it allows her to wear it, not it her. The color of it is stunning

    The make-up is flawless, plus she's not orange.

    Looks great on her, and she looks great!

    Oh c'mon Kickettes, she still looks cheap and overdone. Ever heard of subtlety or understated glamour? Trying to hard here.

    Ha to calling it a mullet! The color is nice but the bottom looks like a fitted bedsheet. Glad she's toned down the self-tanner, though.

      It looks like she's wrappped a duvet around herself! But I like the colour… It's the same colour as my car :)

    Let’s take a Moment of appreciation because she has stopped resembling Snookie. Thank goodness she got rid of the fake tan
