The Van der Vaarts: Welcome To London

Our girl crush prayers have been answered, Kickettes!
Tottenham Hotspur signed Rafael van der Vaart at the close of the EPL transfer window on Tuesday, thus bringing he and his gorgeous, perfect, (alright, we’ve run out of adjectives) wife Sylvie and their adorable little son Damian to London, England.
Last month when we expressed our feelings, most of you thought that the VDVs would end up in the Northwest or just stay in Madrid. Not in our wildest dreams involving Joe Hart did we think they would come to Londontown.
Remind us to send Harry Redknapp a muffin basket.
We would assume that Sylvie will still have her telly presenting duties with German broadcaster RTL to take care of. And we already know that she’s adept at jetsetting, so just imagine all of the photos we’ll get of Sylvie coming in and out of Heathrow looking like she just walked off a runway.
And if that isn’t sufficient to sate you, we can’t wait to see Sylvie really embrace her new home by wearing some of the amazing British designers based in London. Surely she’ll need a Burberry coat for the chilly London winters. Perhaps a Matthew Williamson dress for all of the fabu London events she’ll be attending. And no London girl should be without a classic Stella McCartney blazer.
We’re all aflutter with the possibilities, Kickettes! Tell us, where do you think the van der Vaarts should hang out in London? Will Sylvie prefer Harrods to Harvey Nicks? Will they stock their shelves with Waitrose or M&S?
We need answers!
