I greatly enjoyed Jim White’s take this morning on Danny Cipriani‘s apparent disregard for concerns of his increasing celebrity lifestyle superseding his rugby priorities. Clearly moving in the right circles during Milan fashion week, Cipriani and his ‘equally lens-wary’ girlfriend found themselves seated in close enough proximity to absorb the glamorous and successful aura of Golden Balls Becks.
Mind, the chippy young London Wasps fly-half should note: until they reach the dizzy global heights of Brand Beckham, he may want to focus on his goal-kicking abilities and she on retaining a job for more than six days.
Jim White’s comments were worthy of replication in full I felt:
So much for Cipriani resisting siren call of celebrity.
David Beckham has insisted all along that his move to Milan is nothing to do with fashion. The fact that he was spotted in the front row of Giorgio Armani’s show during the city’s fashion week was mere coincidence. But who was that alongside football’s most assiduous clothes horse, just beyond where Mrs B had stationed herself in the line of camera fire? Why it was Danny Cipriani, with his equally lens-wary partner Kelly Brook. Good to see England’s best rugby player has taken to heart all that advice about resisting the siren call of celebrity and concentrating entirely on his game. Mind, if he is seen out and about any more in Milan, it can only be a matter of time before Manchester City put in a bid for him.
