Team ELLE Watch England V Wales Euro '16

​When fashion meets football


Lotte (Deputy Editor): Shall we put the football on? England are playing Wales

Kenya (Fashion Features Director): Lotte! I didn't have you down as a football fan

Lotte: I'm not I just love an occasion

[Intern works out how to get iplayer on big TV screen]

Billie (Fashion Assistant): 'Is that Gareth Bale? Is he the famous one?"

Lotte: Aren't they all famous ones?

Kenya: What even is this?

Harriet (Market and Retail Editor): Do they normally wear red socks? Dreadful combo with the neon trainers. 


Heather (Fashion Intern): I have two Tshirts that mock football one that says 'fcuk football' and one red Tshirt that has a squiggle where the team logo should be and it just says 'football' really big on the front

Kenya: So THAT's why there were so many people in the pubs at lunch time

Lotte: Someone needs to tell that guy top knots are over

Debbie (Business Manager): I'm more of a rugby girl

Rachael (Bookings Editor): I don't like it. I just don't like it. I mean, what is it adding to anything


Cat (Deputy Picture Editor): I'd rather it be rugby. There's too much falling over. I spend the whole time saying "'c'mon get up get up"'. In a healthy game of sport, both supporting sides would sit together, this would NOT happen in football. You can share a beer with the opposition while watching rugby.

Lizzie (Art Editor): I'm not exactly like "oh my eyes, my eyes I can't watch". But I have no interest. I'm impartial.

Kenya: The falling down is comical

Anne Marie (Fashion Director): Football is one of the few things my teenage son will engage with me on so I'm happy to take a vague interest in that regard. One of the players is very handsome but I can't remember his name

Joely (Beauty Editor): I'm so into it. Ever since Leicester won the Premiership, it got me so into it but I don't know the offside rule. I like Jamie Vardy, he's rogue. I'd quite like Wales to win to be honest then it would be another underdog story.  

Anne Marie: Renato Sanches Is the footballer I am rather fond of. He is like a puppy.

Lotte: I'm not sure he plays for England…
