Footballer Fashion Follies

29 Apr

OMG! So melj1213 from LiveJournal came up with a brilliant idea over on ONTD_Football. She posted this shot of Guti in his neon track suit (oh please, please, please let him sign to the NY Red Bulls!) and invited others to post their favorite football fashion fails. As you can imagine, our boys featured prominently along with many others. Go read the post, it’s hysterical. Here are some of my faves along with the LJ names of the people who posted them. If you have pix to add, please feel free to stick them in the comments here or over at LJ. This is too much fun (and we sorely need some right now).

Oh Iker! (posted by yeats)

Argh! (posted by gigiettu)

miaina47  posted this hilarious article where they claim that Iker is a “style icon” Our Iker? Do they mean someone else?!  The only time he looks stylish is when someone else dresses him. I volunteer Shiggers for the opportunity to dress (and undress) him. She’d make sure he looked good!

And of course, the king of bad fashion, Sergio Ramos was heavily featured. How could he not be? Still cute/hot though!

Not even vaguely sure what the hell is going on here! (posted by melj1213)

This mismatched pocket thing? It’s a trend…

Frankencoat! (posted by elemersglue)

It wouldn’t be bad fashion without the Eurotrashtastic stylings of Cristiano Ronaldo. I mean seriously, for a hot man, he makes some very wrong turns in the pursuit of fashion.

Just….NO. (posted by verses)

We’re not the only team that has atrocious fashion faux-pas in our history!

Nice mullet, Nando! Xabi ‘s hair? Ugh. Iker’s ears? He could fly.

Philippe Mexes, AS Roma

John Terry – What a bad wedding suit!

Landon Donovan – Oy vey.

Frank Lampard, what were you thinking?!

The men of FC Barcelona have a few total howlers in this post – witness:

Villa (posted by coyotesuspect)

Pep (posted by stars2small2use)

Iniesta – oh honey, no. (posted by lauha)

Puyi looks like he raided The Ramos’ closet & then was thrown in a pool
(posted by izuzumi)

However, two men deserve special mention: Werder Bremen goalie Tim Wiese and Manchester United centre back Rio Ferdinand. Their clothing choices featured here make the mind boggle. First up, Tim.

How you gonna keep ’em down on the farm once they’ve seen Berlin?

Early boy band stylings… (posted by taversham)

And now, Rio-OMFG-Ferdinand. I just can’t even… just have to see it.

Looks like Rio & P.Mexes shop at the same stores…
(posted by verses)

Ummmm….WHAT?!  Holy. Crap. He looks like he’s been cast in the role of Mediterrenean Rent Boy #1 in a pR0n flick!

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did! I really needed the laugh! I know we can come up with a few doozies of our own.

    Here’s a couple of my own

    there’s this (a very recent one) My friend was in Madrid just a couple of days ago….yeah I know (apparently though not that crazy where she was)and dear Sergio was on the tv, she took a shot of it.

      That scarf is epic…and disturbing. Looks like he’s been raiding his mami’s closet. After I eat dinner, I’m going to start going through my vaults for some fashion no no-s!

        um, jk! i beg to disagree. i love those green jeans. i may be alone in my opinion, but i’m willing to stand by it and suffer for it publicly.

        but that scarf? i’m with you ladies on that. the pattern looks like something you’d find on the set of a golden girls repeat.

        • notoriousjk April 29, 2011 at 10:46 pm #

          oh the story of the green jeans……..mixed feelings all around

    who’s the hot girl in the first pic with iker. that is not sara.

    mesut does NOT rock the lock cut v neck. he needs to get over them. sometimes it actually looks like he’s wearing a camisole under them to cover cleavage…

    • headbandsandheartbreak April 29, 2011 at 11:17 pm #

      It’s Iker’s ex, Eva.

      • maddy April 30, 2011 at 4:48 am #

        SHE’S HOT!!! what happened? why did they break up? she’s definitely arm candy appropriate for a world cup winning captain

    • emily April 30, 2011 at 11:02 am #

      Eva Gonzalez is a former Miss Spain. They made a very lovely pair, no? She’s dating super hot Spanish bullfighter, Cayetano Rivera, now.

      • maddy April 30, 2011 at 11:05 am #

        you kidding? they look like a genetic jackpot!

    Who could forget this classic Mesut horrorshow?

    • notoriousjk April 30, 2011 at 12:07 am #

      oh lordie………

    • maddy April 30, 2011 at 4:47 am #

      ah of course. kickette did a dressed at gunpoint segment on that. in his defence he was styled for that photoshoot by the magazine stylist. bar the clothes, his face and poses were fierce in all the shots!

    Umm.. WTF?!?!

    Sergio’s outfits don’t look so hideous anymore compared to these other ‘ballers! 😆

    Cris’ hotpants, Terry’s custard suit, Lampard’s Barbe collection, Pep’s.. that thing has an elbow patch.. *facepalm*

    And the last photo? *sigh*

    I’ve never appreciated Sexio’s “taste” more than I do now. 🙂

    • HermosaChica April 30, 2011 at 6:08 am #

      Sorry, my eyes are still recovering.

  6. emily April 30, 2011 at 11:07 am #

    may have to gouge my eyes out after seeing RioF in that last photo. Reminds me of a boy in a cage in a S.Beach dance club.

  7. Litta May 2, 2011 at 4:05 pm #

    hahhahahahah this post made me laugh so hard! Lol. The pants of David Villa, and the pink picture with Sergio. Funny as hell!!!

  8. SierraGutierrez July 23, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    Oh Dahveeed I have those pants! They are DSquared, your favourite, yes; but they are floral, and I am female… :L
