As anyone who's seen the already-infamous new reality show Desperate Scousewives will know, there's never an excuse to step out looking shabby in Liverpool.
But new mother Alex Gerrard appears to have taken things rather too far, wearing a bizarre black fur leather and lace creation to hit the town for some post-baby celebrations.
The strange ensemble appeared to be a confusion of at least three outfits, including odd long leather cuffs on her arms.Rather messy: Alex Gerrard donned an odd combination of leather, fur and lace for a night out in Liverpool yesterday
She appeared to be showing off her stomach with a sheer lace top, keeping her shoulders warm in fur.
Alex bravely bared her tanned legs despite the December chill, wearing a pleather skirt with fabric panels at the hip.
Her sparkly clutch, though also black, only added to the general messy effect.
Mixed impression: Alex looked in amazing shape considering she only gave birth a month ago, but her outfit was a sad misfire
Alex got tipsy with a few friends at Gaucho bar before moving onto San Carlo.
The 29-year-old must have been doing some serious yoga training during her pregnancy, as she looked in incredible shape considering how recently she gave birth.
It has barely been a month since she gave birth to her baby girl Lourdes, her third daughter with Liverpool captain and England midfielder Steven.
Steven and Alex already have two other daughters, Lilly-Ella, seven, and five-year-old Lexie.
Lourdes is the name of the French town to which millions of Catholic pilgrims travel every year.
It is also where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to a poor 14-year-old girl called Bernadette Soubiroux in 1858.
Both Steven and Alex are practicing Catholics so that might have swayed their decision to call their third daughter Lourdes.
Then again, the reason might have been far simpler, if Alex's interview with OK magazine shortly after the birth is anything to go by.
Alex explained: 'To be honest, I've always loved that name'
'We wanted to pick something that began with L because of Lilly and Lexie and both Steven and I agreed on Lourdes. It suits her perfectly.'
She gushed that she and husband Steven couldn't have been more thrilled when their new addition arrived perfectly healthy, weighing 7lb 15 oz.
Alex divulged: 'The first thing I said to Steven when I saw Lourdes was that I couldn't believe how much she looks like him.'
'She's the spitting image of him!'
