Wags. Otherwise known as 'wives and girlfriends' of footballers. Gorgeous, groomed and gold digging glamourous.

Victoria Beckham. Cheryl Cole. Coleen Mcloughlin. All great examples. For 'normal' people, (by normal I mean those that don't have millions stashed away) 'getting your nails done' and 'spray tans' and 'botox' were scarcely heard of. Then the wags came along and house wives all over the country were running off to the salons to get dolled up.

In fashion it's the same. Everybody has their influences and inspirations. People choose an genre, a person, an aspiration, and style themselves around that particular image. Do you agree? So let's take Coleen Mcloughlin for example. Her womanly figure showed that you can be a 'real woman' and be beautiful all the same. Victoria Beckham gave name to the 'POB'. Cheryl Cole inspired many to wear big names effortlessly. As did the rest of the WAGS.

I want to know where your styles come from. Which big names inspire you? Who do you take your inspiration from?

Random note: I LOVE the 'infamous' Cricket boutique in Liverpool, it has such a great range of labels and it gets to 70% off (like on Louboutins and Luella and all sorts of lovelies) in the sale. :)
I think Coleen has a lovely figure. Well I don't know about at present but most certainly pictures I've seen!

Personally I don't particularly aspire to anyone's style but much admire that of the fictional characters of Blair Waldorf and Charlotte York.
