Definitely maybe

Everyone likes a bit of cheering up, especially at a time like this, so I was delighted to read yesterday that Liam Gallagher, scruffy Oasis singer turned stay-at-home dad, is launching his own fashion range (called Pretty Green).

Seriously. Given Liam’s complete lack of style (the Guardian website has furnished us with a slide-show which shows his credentials in a less than flattering light), I’m pretty bemused as to what’s prompted him to get involved in this kind of business in the first place.

 You can kind of understand it when Kate Moss decides she’s going to boost her bank balance by letting a high street chain sell cheap knock-offs of her wardrobe – after all, she is (for better or worse) widely known as a style icon. But when you’re universally known as being a bit of an also-ran when it comes to fashion, you are probably best advised to steer well clear.

So who, if anyone, could we turn to in the celebrity world for some sensible style tips? My vote would probably go to Will Young – I saw him on the South Bank Show last week, and he looked to me like he’s pretty adept at putting together a simple yet individual outfit. Rock may have had quite an influence on fashion in the past, but I think it’s now time to broaden our horizons.

    buddy, Liam has been an icon in England just as much as say Beckham was. You need to check out more pics than some Gaurdian bias on that blasts anything the working class Gallaghers do. He’s got style!

    Maybe I was a bit hasty to dismiss the influence Liam’s style as had on men’s fashion in the UK. My point, though, is that I really don’t see what new he can bring to the table – I think he has always been quite uninspiring (in a way that Beckham hasn’t), copying previous trends and not doing so particularly well.

    Just my view, as always.
