Sports figures usually have a high public profile than anyone else. Football makes this profile even higher. Some football players get the chance of not just being adored, but worshipped by people. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of those extraordinary personalities.
Not only because of his outstanding performance in the game, but because of the impact he has on the world of fashion and style, has he achieved great fame. Perhaps ‘sensational’ is the word best suited for him. His avid admirers try to mimic him in his style, be it his dressing, hair or his looks.
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos was born in Madeira, Portugal. He had the passion for football from the early days of his childhood, and he kept the spark burning to become a highly successful player in the world of football.
Just at 18 years of age, he was signed with Manchester United only to end up afterwards with Real Madrid in 2009. He seems to achieve success and awards in every game since his professional debut, like FIFA World Player of the Year, The Golden Boot, PFA Young Player of the Year just to name a few.
Ronaldo’s strong athletic body makes it sure that whatever he wears looks good. Off the field, he prefers a slimmer fit; from slim fit suits to cropped leather bombers, his physique lets him look perfect in that apparel.
After David Beckham, Ronaldo is the only one to come in limelight that has exceeded sports to become a brand himself. He’s not afraid of people criticizing on his outlook, but rather enjoys their attention.
According to a survey, the Real Madrid player is the most influential in fashion trends among Spanish youngsters. He would even wear a pink hat and this would make him even more gallant for his lovers. People believe whatever he wears is pretty cool.
The trends he sets are always accepted and approved of by his admirers. His self-confidence to break the customary trends and always looking for a new look has made him one of the most admired personality among the fashion people.
The Portuguese virtuoso doesn’t need to worry about his looks, they are there! His fame as the sexiest player has made him a big shot for the prestigious brands like Time Force watches, Pepe Jeans, Coca Cola etc. He’s Armani’s autumn/winter face of 2010 for their undergarments and jeans campaigns. Nike has also its share to Ronaldo’s fashion revolution.
The 26 year old soccer player is pretty famous for his hairstyle. His hairstylist has to work hard for a new look every second month. He introduced many styles for short to medium hair length like short Mohawk and spiky hairstyle. Perhaps the most famous and emulated is the CR razored haircut. He’s also reported to be seen with highlights in his dark brown hair.
In 2009, he launched his clothing line; resulting in a CR7 brand store first in Madeira and a second in Lisbon, to show off his fashion sense to the world. The fashion empire includes man purses, jeans, buckled loafers and studded belts, large metal emblems and even elegant outfits for his female fans.
