V Magazine’s Footballers’ wives, boterinas or a growing trend

In the next number of V Magazine, which will hit stands on July 8th, you’ll find an editorial, more like a parody, dedicated to Argentinean footballers’ wives or boterinas how they are known as due to a TV novella. I’m not joking, because of the World Cup, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele styled this kitschy and yet, rather funny editorial, featuring models like Alessandra Ambrosio, Dree Hemingway, Eniko Mihalik, Jacques Maryna Linchuk & Constance Jablonski and all photographed by Sebastian Faena.

The not so funny part, is that they really exist, not only in Argentina but in Romania too, thus this is kinda of sad. Seeing this 12 page spread is like „reading” a big percent of romanian newspapers, though they don’t deserve the newspaper title.
Here are more than footballer’s wives and girlfriends, they are „musicians”, tv hosts, and designers girlfriends, ro is full with these shady characters. These girls are superficial, plastic, tanned and play dumm, and I’m talking about the ones in the public eye, however there are lots and lots of undiscovered „treasures” in clubs.

Think, Jersey Shore with a twist, but more tanned, more juiced up and more brainless crazy. Maybe they should make a reality show here too, they could call it Mamaia Shore and could air on …ehmm no names. Snooki and J’WOW are ladies…

And yes, they do dress like in the photos, only worse, much, much worse. Some even call themselves modell, and some do ad campaignes for local brands. We have a saying „gusturile nu se discuta”, which translates something like don’t comment the tastes, in this case and in others, you couldn’t not comment the fashion sense of some persons (guys too) when you can’t go out without hurting your eyes when you see them. And believe me, they are almost everywhere.

I know that my ro readers know more of this „trend”, but tell me, do you have it in your country too?

    haha! this is hilarious. i mean, it is also sad because they women really do exist. i can't believe it's worse than snookie and jwoww! haha!

    we obviously have people like this in america, but it's still so sad that women feel they have to look like this for the fame and money.

    anyway, the editorial itself is really cool, even if it is a parody.

    I know this editorial is rather tongue-in-cheek, but I think these ladies are so sexy!

    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend, darling Nookie!

    I totally agree with you- we have them too… quite disgusting for me, but some guys like them; really sad, but that's life…

    Hope you're doing great dear.

    Reality hits heard.
    Iata un motiv pentru care nu citesc asa-numitele ziare…La un moment dat ajunge sa-ti fie mila de ele pentru felul in care arata/traiesc/se comporta.
    Gusturile nu s-or discuta, dar numai gust nu poate fi numit stilul lor.

    I wonder about these.It`s sad.
    Our country in a wide range of publicity too.

    Good week!<3

    eu zic (,) ca li se potriveste alt cuvant : "pitzipoance"

    adica…tipa aia care isi alapta copilul in plina strada mi se pare total dizgratioasa

    asta din topicul : Asa nu!

    imi place ca abordezi si subiecte de genul asta
    pentru a invata din gresalele alora !

    nu stiu daca ar trebui sa rad sau sa plang .
    sincer, e tragic !

  9. June 20, 2010 / 9:41 pm

    Wow, these women don't look very classy at all! But I guess that's what some guys find attractive.

  10. June 20, 2010 / 9:52 pm

    This is so funny. And the thought of Snooki and J-Woww being ladylike, relatively speaking, is even funnier.

  11. June 20, 2010 / 11:13 pm

    lmao omg, I can't believe the lengths people go to! We have these sort of people in Canada, but it isn't wide spread and not to this degree lol.

    Poor souls

  15. June 21, 2010 / 11:08 am

    LOL this is funny and sad too like cheryl said! Yes there are women just like this here too. I think they are everywhere its a lack of space.. 😀


  16. June 21, 2010 / 11:29 am

    Haha, I saw it on Coco Perez. Hilarious!

  17. June 21, 2010 / 1:04 pm

    I did enjoy that editorial. It was very sexy.

    I think there are women like that all around. This post made me think about that Brit show Footballers Wives.

  18. June 21, 2010 / 1:16 pm

    Unfortunately, we have them too! But I'm not one to judge. There's something out there for everyone and if these athletes are into these types women, then so be it. But I would never become like this for anyone or anything.

  19. June 21, 2010 / 2:47 pm

    Haha! What a humorous piece. I'm not sure if we have people like this in the States – though, most likely, we do. I can't help but to think of Paris Hilton when I look at some of these pictures!! 🙂

  20. June 21, 2010 / 4:42 pm

    these are so HOt i love 'em.<3

  21. June 22, 2010 / 10:57 am

    Haha, super article, it's great that you draw attention to this. 😛
