and the winner is… Xabi (by a kilometer)
A lot of you (does that sound egotistical?) seem to like my fashion reviews. I wasn’t going to do one, because the fashions were mostly boring yesterday at Las Rozas, but then I decided I should also award those who looked good – you know, to give them a bit of encouragement to keep on this path and not be influenced by Iker.
So, we’ll start with Xabi, who looked absolutely perfect.
He may look a bit boring to some, but this outfit is just. so. Xabi. Alonso.
Then we come to his opposite, Iker. The outfit is not bad – a bit too neutral for me – but the purse!!!! It’s not even a travel bag, it’s an actual handbag! Real Madrid fans will be used to it, since Iker has been toting it around during the last few concentraciones but it does not get better with age. Maybe Sara was like, “here, Iker, take my purse, it’ll fit a lot more things than your regular murse” while secretly thinking, “ha, that will make him less attractive to other women.”
In his other hand, he had a Real Madrid shopping bag. Hmmm, Cristiano also had one as he headed to Switzerland to play with Portugal. I wonder what’s inside?
Here’s Iker from the front. You can see that he borrowed the cardigan from his grandfather, and that of course he added a scarf. He probably tried to match it to his purse.
Pepe, Piqué and Llorente went for the casual look, in jeans and a simple top, although Fernando’s is a bit too busy. But that puffy jacket of his is too puffy! He could use it as a life raft! I like that Geri doesn’t have a designer suitcase, unlike some people. Good thing he wasn’t wearing those boots.
Raúl Albiol also opted for a plaid shirt (again, it’s very busy) while Santi’s huge belt buckle turns me off. I’m not a big fan of the double pockets either. But hey, he can fit both Xavi and Villa in there instead of having to pick just one! How come none of the reporters care about his entrance?
And of course, as someone mentioned earlier, Sergio’s jacket matches the one his Crackòvia counterpart wears. The jeans look pretty “original” too.
As for the hat, here’s an up-close look. No, no and no. I bet he bought it during a shopping trip with Cristiano, when Cris got that silly D&G hat.
Xavi and Pedro were boring (I prefer boring to outlandish in real life, but not for these types of blog posts).
Álvaro Arbeloa gets the most unoriginal award for showing up in another DSquared shirt. There was a 50-50 chance that he would.
Jesús went for real casual, but it’s a huge improvement over some of his previous outfits. And Fernando Torres looks more like a computer repairman than a star footballer (he has a big old laptop bag slung across his back).
