Famed fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi to coach Cruz Azul? Apparently so. Tired of being beaten on the field, both stylistically and futbolistically, Cruz Azul of Mexico, D.F. has hired Isaac Mizrahi to man the helm, or dress the helm, or something.
While this change hasn't made Andres Cantor grita "GOOOOOOL" yet, it has scared Pachuca--the widely acknowledged "best dressed" team in the Mexican soccer league. They are so worried about their status atop the fashion pyramid that they have begun redesigning their official web site. They're obviously preparing a completely new look for next season. Until their site is up, you can check out some historical footage of Pachuca right here--back when they all played with mustaches.
When I tried to contact Mizrahi for a statement, an assistant answered his phone with, "Isaac Mizrahi, futbol and fashion designer's office. Isaac thinks polar bears are cute. How can I help you?" I'm still waiting to hear back from him.
