the fashion train has left Madrid
… for good, apparently.
In the past few days, Real Madrid’s players have given us multiple things to talk about, in terms of their fashion choices.
Yesterday, for example, for one lunch and one afternoon of tennis, we had some seriously questionable outfits. But then, they really wouldn’t be footballers if they dressed well all the time, would they?
During a lunch honoring Cristoph Metzelder at – where else – Asador Donostiarra, we had the following:
- Cristiano Ronaldo: floral patterned shirt + tight, shiny pants + big designer logo belt = a new rumor that you’re gay.
If that picture doesn’t convince you, here are some up-close shots of the outfit, which Cristiano also wore to watch tennis later on:
- Sergio Ramos, in his favorite red leather jacket, matched with red shoes and jeans with patches on them? I’m not liking the fit of his outfit at all, the jacket makes him look wide and the tapered jeans aren’t doing him any favors either. But still, it’s a very Sergio-like outfit.
- meanwhile, Iker showed up in a blazer with brown piping (which we later find out matched the piping on his shirt) and what looks to be a combination of a garbage bag/umbrella/folded up poncho in his hand, but what is more likely to be his (sniff) murse. Oh Iker, why do you do this to yourself?
It’s not the first blazer of this type in his wardrobe, this is. Can you imagine if Iker decided to pair this with that blue shirt and those blue sneakers? I think it’s just a matter of time because it’s totally something he would think of.
- and the combo of Pepe and Albiol also leave a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, Pepe wore a jacket, but I think we can be 90% sure there was a questionable graphic-t under there. And Albiol needs to start dressing up just a bit more? The jeans with the strip on the side remind me too much of a certain pair favored by Iker, so it also gets negative points.
- And Míchel’s belt buckle. I can’t see anything else in the picture, that image has been seared into my memory. It’s great to see him back though.
Then later on, at the Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open, Zidane decided that he was even younger than Raúl Albiol and appeared like this, complete with faux-harem pants, courtesy of Dona da Bola. I’m sure his two sons, who watched the game with him, looked older, outfit-wise.
