Coleen Rooney covers British Vogue’s September issue
Say hello to British Vogue’s (surprising!) new cover star: Coleen Rooney. Famous in the UK as being the childhood sweetheart and wife of renowned footballer Wayne Rooney, Rooney found herself at the center of a pop culture phenomenon, aka the infamous “Wagatha Christie” scandal in 2019. ICYMI: Rooney had accused fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy of leaking stories about her to the press, and went about trying to prove it with a social media trap. When it came to light, the spat piqued global interest, led to think pieces in the likes of the New York Times, and has subsequently even been made into a theatrical production, with a documentary also on its way. For her September issue cover story, lensed by Alec Maxwell and styled by Justine Mills, the mom-of-four sat down for an exclusive interview at her Cheshire manor, providing a glimpse into her opulent lifestyle and candidly discussing how she navigated the ordeal. Reflecting on the court proceedings that ensued in May of this year, Rooney admitted, “I’ve never been in a legal case before so for me it was scary.” Following her legal triumph, she has put this chapter behind her and is currently collaborating on a documentary project with Disney+ while also crafting her autobiography in partnership with Penguin.

The former Baywatch pinup is captured engaging in outdoor tasks like hedge trimming and lawn mowing—stars, they’re just like us!—all the while striking commanding poses in understated yet sophisticated ensembles. The heart of the campaign, fittingly, revolves around the notion of finding inner comfort and feeling at home with oneself. And no one can deny it’s been Pam’s year to reclaim her narrative and tell her story on her terms.
