I have admired Coleen Rooney for as long as I have known her. She is a very pretty and elegant lady. Quite the opposite of a typical WAG, if am being honest. And I love that about her. Her fashion sense WOWS me every time, and I think our personal style is quite similar. I remember reading her book – Welcome to my World, in 2007 and being blown away by the story of her life. Herself and Wayne Rooney are definitely not overnight successes.
Coleen Rooney is not your typical footballer wife. She is like another Victoria Beckham in her own right, with her successful business. She is not living under the shadow of her successful footballer husband and I admire her for that. It would have been tempting to just relax and play WAG.
Coleen Rooney loves the relaxed chic look, and I can see why. It looks amazing on her and suits her personality. As the wife of a footballer and a mother to 3 boys, her relaxed style is great for school football tours with her boys, or watching Wayne Rooney play a football match live. This stylish mother of 3 soon to be 4, looks real and fabulous at the same time.
I came across an interview she had with Liverpool Echo, and I enjoyed reading it. Here are some excerpts from the interview –
Q: You’re now a style icon to lots of women, but whose style do you admire?
A: It is nice for me when people say ‘oh I like what you wore’ and now what I really love is when girls come up and tell me that they’ve just ordered something from my collection.
I haven’t seen anyone wearing it yet, but it’s still early so I think maybe I’ll start to see more and more and when I do I’ll just have a little smile to myself.
I don’t really have one style icon. I tend to take bits and bobs from looks and then try to put my own mark on them. I think if I had to choose one it would be Audrey Hepburn, because her style was just so elegant and classic, the simple black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s was really beautiful. I try to choose things that I know, when I look at them in a few years’ time, I’ll still think ‘oh I really like that.’ Someone now I like is Blake Lively from Gossip Girl, I like the fashion choices she makes.
What do you think of Coleen Rooney’s style? Are you a fan?
