Ronaldo Brings In The Trend Of Super Tight ShortsJune 19th, 2009 - 2:55 am ICT by GD
Christiano Ronaldo is making news all over. Just last week the Portuguese superstar footballer had made headlines for being the highest bid footballer of all time. In a short span of two days, he was back in news for being seen partying with Hilton heiress, Paris Hilton in Los Angeles. Now he is making news for his clothes, more precisely, the lack of it.
Ronaldo is presently vacationing in Los Angeles and celebrating his triumph. The former Manchester United forward has made a style statement of sorts and has brought in the trend of super tight shorts while enjoying his vacation. Ronaldo’s preference and fondness for super tight shorts has inspired leading fashion houses to give them a thought.
The stylish Real Madrid star has created a huge market for the tight shorts because of his immense popularity and style icon status. The British department stores chain, Debenhams (DEB.L) said on Thursday that the sales of the skimpy, tight fitting shorts have doubled over 117 percent since last week. The rage for the super tight shorts surged since Ronaldo was photographed sporting the piece last week while lazing around his Beverly Hills hotel’s poolside in the United States.
The 24-year-old star’s trend setting style has provided the fashion of men’s shorts a new dimension. Paul Baldwin, Debenhams’ director in men’s wear purchase said, “His sense of style has moved men’s shorts into an entirely new ball game.”
Last week Real Madrid had made a staggering transfer bid of $ 131 million to evict Ronaldo from Manchester United. The high bid amount has put his name down in history as the player with the highest transfer bid amount.
