Fashion faux pas aren’t just committed by Hollywood’s hottest; on and off the field, star footballers are often guilty of them, too. Even the seemingly impeccable David Beckham, widely regarded as an international style icon, has days that were sarong, ahem, so wrong. As the saying goes, money can’t buy style. And with all eyes on the World Cup these days, we take a quick breather to ponder some of the best and worst of footballers’ tastes in fashion.
Girls go gaga over Cristiano Ronaldo, though not necessarily for his fast feet and ball control. Sure, his confidence may be construed as cockiness, but what he lacks in modesty, he makes up for with a nifty sense of style. Cristiano cuts a fine figure in his choice of suits and stands out as one of the better-dressed footballers off the pitch. Sorry, can’t say the same about girlfriend Irina Shayk — her fashion picks aren’t as spot-on as her squeeze’s rather impeccable taste.
