Coleen Rooney is set to be on the front cover of Vogue magazine and arch-rival Rebekah Vardy may not be too happy about it

Coleen Rooney has allegedly landed herself on the front cover of Vogue magazine's September issue ahead of her new Disney+ ‘Wagatha Christie’ documentary release.  

The news comes after an industry insider revealed to The Sun that the wife of England star Wayne Rooney has already been photographed for the cover of the converted September issue.

The insider said “Bagging such a coveted cover spot on Vogue is an incredible coup for Coleen, and a measure of how her profile has soared in recent years. It will also be a painful spectacle for Rebekah [Vardy], who’s still smarting from losing the Wagatha libel case last year.”

Coleen and Rebekah Vardy are currently in a dispute over the $1.8 million cost of the legal bill.

They continued “Rebekah actually worked as a fashion model for years before she married footballer Jamie Vardy, and getting the front of the fashion bible is seen as the ultimate ambition for anyone working in the industry.”

Fashionista website explains that the September issue of Vogue has “historically been considered the biggest fashion moment of the year for magazines.”

It would be a huge step for Coleen who since the World Cup WAG Era of 2006 has since faded into the background. It was only really the ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial that brought her back into the limelight.

In the noughties Coleen released a few TV series which failed, released a workout DVD and a her own fragrance. She had a deal with both ASDA and Littlewoods in 2010 and wrote two style books the following year but doesn’t appear to have worked on anything else since. The TV personality has became better known as a Wayne's wife and for taking her four children on luxury holidays. 

The cover of Fashion bible Vogue seems a bit off-trend, however Vogue UK's Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful does appear to be taking the magazine in a slightly different direction and trying new things. Recently we saw actress Miriam Margolyes, 82 pose topless for the cover in celebration of Pride Month. 

Rebekah Vardy may not be the only WAG unhappy about Coleen gracing the cover of the style magazine. Although the Queen of the WAG’s Victoria Beckham has featured on many covers of Vogue magazine she had to fight for a long time to get it.

In 2008 the same year she launched her fashion label Victoria was on the cover of British Vogue but it wasn’t until several years later she was on the front cover of US Vogue. 

Alex Curran, wife of Premier League football manager Steven Gerrard was rumoured to be on the front cover of Vogue for the December issue in 2009. Alex was well known for wearing the Juicy Couture velour tracksuits at the time.

The model reportedly did a photoshoot for a five page feature which would also put her on the cover. However that didn’t work out as David Walliams' ex-girlfriend and Dutch model Lara Stone took the spot. 

Shockingly, Georgina Rodríguez - girlfriend to football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo - has only ever been on the front cover of Vogue Brazil.
