FIFA World Cup- Hottest WAGs

Things are getting hotter, at the FIFA World Cup, as players from 32 countries are fighting it out to make it to the knock-out stage. Football is never only about adrenaline-rushing action, and nail-biting finishes. Amidst the dazzling moves and clever passes on the field, we just cannot give the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of the professional players a pass. Jabong Online Shopping has compiled a list of the famous WAGs of the 2014 World Cup edition that deserve your full attention:"FIFA World Cup at Jabong"From L-R: 1. Iker Casillas with girlfriend Sara Carbonero 2. Sergio Ramos with girlfriend Pilar Rubio 3. Cristiano Ronaldo and girlfriend Irina Shayk 4. Gerard Pique with girlfriend Shakira

Singing sensation Shakira drove football fans crazy with the World Cup 2010 theme song “Waka, Waka”, but her success didn’t just end there. The suave Spanish defender Gerard Pique, and Shakira have been in a relationship since then, and have even welcomed their first son, Milan! Here’s a picture of them at the Billboard Music Awards, as the crooning beauty turned up the heat in a body-hugging dress! Emulate her look with similar bodycon women dresses at Jabong, and watch on as your boyfriend chooses you over the big game!

The Real Madrid and Spanish defender Sergio Ramos may not be at the best of his game at the World Cup, but he sure clinched the top spot with his smoking hot partner, Pilar Rubio. A celebrity in her own, Pilar dons several hats as a model, TV actress, TV reporter as well as a designer!

Who says WAGs are only glamour girls? The Spain National team captain Iker Casillas’s girlfriend, Sara Carbonero was a Spanish sports journalist and TV presenter, when she met her now-boyfriend. I’ve got a serious girl crush on the FMH winner of the ‘Sexiest Reporter in the world’! The couple became parents to a beautiful baby named Martin, in January 2014.

The most enviable celebrity couple has to be supermodel Irina Shayk and her beau Cristiano Ronaldo! The sexy Russian siren has walked the ramp for several brands and posed for the last 6 issues of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The Portugal forward needs no introduction, and the duo has been steady since 2011.

The 5th edition of the GQ Best Dressed Men Awards 2014 was recently held in the Palladium Hotel, Mumbai, to pay homage to the most stylish men of our country. If you missed out, we bring you a breakdown on the country’s biggest sartorial achievers.  While we were pleasantly surprised to see the immaculately dressed men (well, most of them!), we got to give the ladies some credit too!"Women Shopping Online at Jabong"

Nargis Fakhri, stole the show with a risqué Namrata Joshipura sheer embellished dress, Bottega Veneta clutch and Isharya jewellery finished her head-turning look. A slick ponytail and bold berry lips, showed us how she completely owned the look! Emulate her look with the Dorothy Perkins collection at Jabong, and go from drab to fab within minutes! The ever-stunning Evelyn Sharma took the plunge in a riveting Anita Dongre dress, as she struck a pose for the shutterbugs. Preeti Desai, tried hard by accentuating her enviously perfect figure in the coral Gaurav Gupta gown. With a soft up-do, hoops and a cocktail ring, this look doesn’t quite dial up to wow us. Clad in a Veda Raheja dress, Amrita Puri is all smiles dimples, and sure kicked up on the sultry factor at the soiree. A black clutch and Badgley Mischka pumps completed her electrifying look. Speaking of electrifying looks, we are left in shock at Anushka Manchanda’s look courtesy Anand Bhushan! What was she thinking? Kiran Rao fared quite well in the Drashta dress, a welcome change from her mundane red-carpet choices."men shopping online at Jabong"1. Ayushmann Khurana 2. Rahul Khanna 3. Shahid Kapoor 4. Saif Ali Khan 5. Karan Johar 6. Amit Sadh

You didn’t think we would forget the men…eh? The fashion aficionados came out to play, as the paparazzi had a field time putting them under the scanner. The ‘Vicky Donor’ star, Ayushmann Khurana looked sleek in a well-tailored, blue Paul Smith suit, white shirt, brown shoes and a gold lapel chain-pin. The yellow-silver striped tie, and bright yellow pocket square, showed his daring side. It’s your turn to suit up with the formals collection at your favourite shopping portal for online shopping for men! We sure didn’t expect such a hideous look from the Nawab who is also gracing the cover of this month’s GQ issue! Saif Ali Khan, wore a Burberry black leather jacket, white tee and a pair of beat-up denims. Rahul Khanna looked dapper in a double-breasted plaid suit courtesy Gucci. He scores 10/10 for this classy, and confident appearance! Although his casual look was under-stated for the star-studded event, we got to give it to Shahid Kapoor, for his stand-out appearance. He looked smashing in a monochrome look, sporting a casual white blazer with a crew neck black tee, black trousers and suede shoes. Karan Johar failed to impress in his ill-fitting suit and trousers, while Amit Sadh shows us how Nehru jackets dramatically create an effortless and red-carpet appropriate swoon-worthy look.
