Seeing as the World Cup has started and England are playing their first game today I thought I would take a trip down denim memory lane to four years ago when this site was just a few months old. The highlight of the 2006 World Cup in Germany for many England fans was not their side’s performance (as usual they went out on penalties) but the glamorous presence of the celebrity wives and girlfriends, who attended, shopped and partied.
The reigning queen of the WAGs back then was of course Victoria Beckham and her lady-in-waiting was pop star and reality show judge Cheryl Cole. It’s funny looking at these photos to see how VB has evolved from an uber-glam ex-pop star and footballer’s wife to a respected fashion designer. The WAGs have been discouraged from attending the current World Cup by England Manager Fabio Capello. So unfortunately we won’t get a repeat of this spectacle, however hopefully England will make up for it by winning the World Cup for us!
