The Voronins: A (Belated) But Fond Fashion Farewell
As we’re all aware, Liverpool striker and ponytail-supporter Andriy Voronin was sold to Dynamo Moscow in the recently closed January transfer window.
While Andriy didn’t give us a long list of pitch-side memories, he and his lovely wife Yulia sure gave us a lot to remember from their stay in ole Blighty.
Once (and again) dubbed England’s Worst Dressed WAG, Yulia was last seen in December frolicking and posing for photographers on Miami Beach.
Note: We must give credit – after two babies, Yulia has a bangin’ bod that can definitely still bring all the boys to the yard. But what good is said bangin’ bod when she covers it with polyester and past-season accessories?
So, let’s all say goodbye to the Voronins with a walk down fashion disaster memory lane. We’re really going to miss ‘em.
The Tracksuit Heard ‘Round the World
This is the one that started it all, Kickettes.
Yulia made her debut in the tabloids wearing this velour leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana monstrosity that she inexplicably paired with a black turtleneck and black peep-toe stilettos. In doing so, she threw her Cricket bag in the ring for the England’s Worst Dressed WAG competition.
Not to be outdone, Andriy equally heinous D&G shell suit let the world know this was a couple that meant bad fashion business.
Double Denim Disasters
Double denim (meaning denim top and denim bottom) hasn’t been in style since, well, ever. But why let that minor detail stop Yulia from finding her fashion happy-place?
Note: we hope you noticed the “cropped” motif she’s also worked into her look? It’s all in the details.
Yulia committed the same fashion felony here while out shopping with her husband and their adorable baby son.
Andriy, also in attendance was seen wearing his favorite shell suit bottoms and a woman’s coat. Don’t tell us it was made for men. We won’t be listening.
We can give Yulia props for the pretty purple color, but wearing your nightie as a dress is never okay.
Unless you’re Mariah Carey. Or one of the most wagtastic WAGs around. Hmm. We may not have much of a soapbox with this one. Well played, Mrs. V.
Finally, in what could be one of the greatest WAG fashion crimes in history, Yulia seared the image of this silky royal blue track suit complete with rhinestone lettering and sparkly fabric detailing onto our retinas. She paired it with a pair of Louis Vuitton sandals and bag so off they wouldn’t even be stocked by the drop-and-run Oxford Street knock-off sellers. That’s quite an achievement.
So farewell, dear Voronins. We hope Moscow brings you a whole new world of cheap fabrics, expensive fabrics that somehow end up looking cheap, and ill-advised accessories to have fun with. xox
