Pic: Gervinho gets in touch with his feminine side sporting a dainty pair of women's shoes

Former Arsenal player Gervinho dazzles the fashion conscious city of Rome with a pair of... eh... well... ladies' shoes.

It is said that fashion and style is all about taking chances, which is ironic in this case, as Gervinho rarely took chances at all, or at least he didn't during his stint at Arsenal, which will not be remembered fondly by Gunners' fans as he became a figure of ridicule to both Arsenal and opposition fans alike with his sheer inability to display actual ability on the football pitch.

He's now playing for AS Roma, who are having a fine season, positioned in second place behind runaway leaders Juventus in Serie A. Gervinho was recently spotted out on the town in Rome and while his get-up was fine for the most part, his footwear attracted a fair deal of attention.

It looks like he is being arrested by the fashion police in that group shot. Perhaps he should have been. It's a big Gervinho-no-no.
