Gabby Logan raised the glamour stakes at the World Cup today when she turned out to meet the England team.
The BBC presenter, 45, wore leopard print shoes, similar to those favoured by Prime Minister Theresa May.
But while the PM is known for her towering heels, Mrs Logan had to rein in her taste for the good of the playing surface.
‘I’m only allowed flat shoes as I’ve been told I might damage the pitches,’ she told MailOnline.

The mother-of-two added: ’The Beckhams have made it to the World Cup in Russia as I’m wearing a Victoria Beckham top.’
She matched it with leggings from high street chain Whistles and revealed her size six shoes were from Dune.
She added: ‘I’ve brought three suitcases and will carry the items I need for matches.’
Mrs Logan, daughter of former Welsh international and manager Terry Yorath, is in Russia to cover the tournament for the BBC.
The former gymnast, who is staying at a local beachside hotel, said she longed to run along the sea front, but a knee injury had stopped her.
‘I damaged my knee while skiing and have a scar. That’s also why I’m wearing these pants.’
She said the BBC did not grant her a clothing allowance and her wardrobe was entirely her own.
England meanwhile trained on front of the public and media at the Spartak Stadium a few miles away from their Repino hotel where they arrived last night.
Captain Harry Kane lifted a trophy – a tea urn – presented to him in front of his team by local dignitary Aleksey Kuimov.
There was applause from 100 schoolchildren invited to grow England training as an announcer wished the team ‘many victories‘ on Russian soil.
Coach Gareth Southgate was presented with a salt and bread food parcel which is a symbol of Russian hospitality.
Schoolboy Arthur Shuarez was all smiles as Kane signed a football for him. Local youth coach Ivan Shabarov said:
‘This means a lot to the children. It’s is just a shame that more of them couldn’t be here too. There’s also not many tickets.’
Raheem Sterling made no attempt to hide his controversial gun tattoo as he trained and the players were serenaded by a Russian rock version of the Beatles song ‘Come Together.’
