As the Euro 2012 championship continues, here in Grazia Towers we are just as fascinated by what the players’ wives and girlfriends are doing as we are in the football. (Okay, maybe we’re just a tiny bit more interested in the WAGs…).
But forget the glamour and excess of Baden-Baden, when the WAGs – including Victoria Beckham – went on shopping sprees. The new wave are opting for their hotel rooms over late-night bars and have abandoned hair extensions for a far more sedate look.
Yet let’s not forget that this is a competition. So who will top our WAG-o-meter… and who will be shown a red card?
Forget fake tan and hotpants. The WAG 2.0’s have made a conscious effort to be low key. Topping our chart is Coleen Rooney in her Stella McCartney shorts and neon pink tee. We also love the dress-down Melanie Slade.
The weather is awful, they reportedly don’t like their hotel. Is it any wonder the WAGs are distracting themselves by supporting their footballer partners. Yet going down our WAG-o-Meter is captain Steven Gerrard’s wife Alex Curran, who has chosen to holiday in Ibiza rather than shiver in the stands.
£57,000 shopping sprees have been replaced by trips to water theme parks. The jury is still out on our thoughts on this… although it definitely feels more ‘right for now’ than the excess of 2006. (Although we can always rely on Coleen for a private jet moment...).
But with more games to play, we’re still deciding on our winner. We’d love to know who tops your WAG-o-Meter? Tell us below…
