The Fiat and Chrysler merger has produced some “interesting” vehicles. Remember the “special” Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8s that were gifted to Massa and Alonso?
Now as if the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 x Alonso & Massa edition wasn’t hideous enough, there is a “special” Jeep Wrangler. Have you seen it yet? Here are some photos (via autoblog):
Unlike autoblog, I have some different ideas about this particular Jeep Wrangler. Perhaps Fiat has decided to pay homage to a former driver? A seven time world champion ex-Ferrari driver that is… Remember, dragons are totally Schumi Style. 😉
I mean seriously, this Jeep just screams Schumi with the dragons all over it. Open the hood, and there will be a dragon staring you (or Schumi) in the face.
There are even Chinese characters for ‘dragon’ on the hubcaps and door. It might as well say SCHUMACHER. Can you just see Schumi’s smile of happiness as he climbs into the vehicle? I sure can…
What do you think about this Jeep Wrangler? Love it? Hate it? I say it’s perfect for Schumi. 😛
Whitmarsh is certainly no Ron Dennis. Yes, obviously. Under Whitmarsh’s leadership, McLaren is leading the way in the F1 Top Model Championship. Whitmarsh shows us that team principals can also model:
It appears that Whitmarsh has mastered the fashion blogger pose:
One hand on the waist
Head pointed slightly down whilst eyes are looking up
Uneven weight distribution on the legs
Oh my! It’s the infamous “Little Tea Pot” pose. Oh Whitmarsh, you amaze me. 😉
Apparently he turned into a wolf. I’m not sure going to join 5 Live F1 was such a good thing then… I miss the adorable Wolfman. The one good thing about this photo is that I can now direct people to it when they ask me, “Why do you call Jaime Algersuari WOLFMAN of all things?” Simple. He looks like one… or a werewolf…
Grooming is a favorite topic here at the pitwalk. Some may wonder why I am particularly obsessed with it despite admitting that there are times when I do not even comb my hair*. The answer is, it is just the way I have been raised. Some members of my family are known to be quite particular about appearances and will not hesitate to tell me that I look sloppy.
I still remember an uncle asking my cousin if he had brushed his teeth one day. My cousin glibly replied, “Yes uncle, I have. My teeth are just yellow.” Oh boy, I had to restrain myself from laughing, because we were actually at a cemetery paying our respects.
It was a good thing I didn’t laugh either because that same uncle then turned to me and asked, “Did you comb your hair this morning? It looks a bit messy. When is the last time you had a haircut?” Ouch, it was my turn…
Because of my grooming fixation, I am always pleased when I see someone looking tidy or with a new look. I had considered doing a feature on the Best 2012 Haircuts. But when it came down to it… I couldn’t genuinely say I liked more than one haircut. This (dubious) honor goes to Heikki Kovalainen. Heikki’s new haircut isn’t terribly different from what he had before, it’s just shorter. While Heikki’s hair looks fine styled with gel, I think I prefer it without the gel. I think it’s more flattering and makes him look more approachable.
*In my defense, I have long hair, so I do not get bedhead. My workplace is also located in a windy part of town, so even if I did comb it at home, I have to recomb at my cubicle. And yes, I have been known to do so at my cube. Just sayin’.
It was only a matter of time before a new driver appeared with good hair. The last newbie with good hair was of course, Hartley. While I wouldn’t say Pic has the best hair in F1 just yet… he does have the best hair amongst the F1 newbs. 😉
It has been just about forever since my last F1 WAG fashion post, hasn’t it? Well, there’s no better way to kick off the Australian GP than with the always cute, Isabell Reis:
Isabell was spotted in Melbourne wearing a simple scoop neck tshirt with green skinny jeans. She also wore black and green bracelets, the green one almost looked a bit like a jade bangle. However, upon further inspection, there was a gold ring around the edge, so it may be an enamel bangle. The look was completed with a feminine black peeptoe shoe with bows.
Colored denim is everywhere now, especially with the color blocking trend. I think it can look a bit 80’s, so one must be careful with styling. Personally, I have already gone off the deep end and worn red and kelly green denim myself. Yes, despite the fear of looking like a Female EJ, I did it. And so can you (if you want…).
If you want to replicate Isabell’s look, it will be a bit difficult. Hey, it’s just jeans and a tshirt, how hard could it be? Well, there lies the rub. The tshirt must be quite fitted, even at the sleeve. In addition, the sleeve is also a bit long, so avoid cap sleeves for a true re-creation. I found a few different shirts available at all price points.
There are cheaper tshirts available, but they tend to have a wider sleeve, so I won’t post them up here.
While colored denim is indeed everywhere… the replicating the tone of Isabell’s jeans will be a bit of a challenge. Many of the green jeans that are for sale are more saturated or completely the wrong tone. There are many brands selling mint green, kelly green, and emerald green jeans… but Isabell’s jeans appear to be more muted, a diluted cool green.
Isabell appears to be wearing a black wrap bracelet, which can be duped easily. Or if you are cheap like me, consider wrapping a thin leather belt around your wrist. This is only doable if the leather isn’t overly stiff. If you happen to have a jade bangle, that would work nicely. Otherwise, there are fun pieces at places like Forever 21:
