Most English people are licking their wounds today after losing out on the World Cup bid for 2018. Despite an impressive negotiating team including David Beckham and Prince William, it seems that FIFA just weren't impressed by us. Everyone is speculating on the reason why, and I have my own take on the situation. The two winning bids by Russia and Qatar had something we were lacking – a stylish lady! Natalia Vodianova jumped out of her seat for Russia, before heading to the stage in a leopard print dress with the vice president. Rising style icon Sheikha Moza of Qatar was also there as she took to the stage to celebrate their 2022 success in a red ensemble. Maybe if we bid again, we can follow their lead and include a fashionable lady – maybe Kate Moss, Emma Watson or Alexa Chung?
