Techmania spread to US of A.

 According to People magazine, Alex Gerrard is going to be on the cover of Vogue USA magazine. The article:

ALEX curran 1, Victoria Beckham 0
She beats WAG rival to model for U.S. Vogue

Soccer Wag Alex Curran has scored over rival Victoria Beckham - by getting signed up for fashion bible Vogue just weeks after Posh was dropped from its cover.

Alex, 27, wife of Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard, flew to New York last week to be photographed for the US version of the magazine.

Victoria, 35, was due to be the cover star for last month's issue but was dropped after she appeared on the front of rival mag Elle.

Alex was flown out by Vogue to be photographed by their top cameraman Alistair Guy after executives decided to feature the wife of an England football star. A source close to the mum of two said: "She was shocked to be asked but delighted to take part.

"Soccer is the fastest growing sport in the States so they were keen to feature an England WAG and Alex fitted the bill. 

Glamorous "Obviously due to recent events Victoria was out of the question. They wanted to do Frank Lampard's partner but he doesn't have one so they went for Gerrard's wife.

"She is a glamorous woman with experience of modelling."

But Alex was taken aback by the tiny clothes that American models wear.

The US size 4 and 6 - equivalent to the British 8 and 10 - didn't quite fit Alex so the photographer had to find her alternative clothes. 

The source said: "Alex didn't realise quite how small the clothes are over there - too small for her curvy figure." 

Mind you, when Alex finally appears in the magazine it might puzzle the Yanks.

Vogue reader Susannah Masler, 47, a graphic artist in New York, was asked if she had ever heard of Alex Curran and replied: "I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that name. Who is he?" Data analyst Michelle Bronowski, 38, of Washington DC, got Alex's gender right but said: "Never heard of her or the other one you just told me, Victoria. I have no idea why she should be on a front cover."

Whahha. I'm sure she's going to be GORGEOUS.
