HE is already a stylish operator on a football pitch – but England striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is about to become even more eye-catching off it.
The striker, currently on Euros duty with the Three Lions, has hired Harry Styles’ stylist to overhaul his image.
Harry’s outlandish fashion since swapping One Direction for solo fame has established him as one of the world’s most daring stars.
He has been snapped wearing dresses, pearls and nail paint and even carrying a handbag.
Now guru Harry Lambert, who has masterminded some of Harry’s looks, has signed Dominic as a client.
VINTAGE TWEED SUIT
He says of the collaboration: “I’m not saying we want to do a David Beckham sarong . . . but I don’t think it’s a bad aim.”
Dominic already likes a snappy outfit.
He and Everton teammate Tom Davies turned heads at New York Fashion Week in February last year as Dominic wore a vintage tweed suit and shades and Tom yellow trousers and a tweed dressing-gown with purple shoes and yellow-tinted sunglasses.
Lambert, who started out working in a River Island shop, has since become one of the most influential men in fashion — having also styled The Crown stars Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin.
Speaking about his collaboration with Lambert, Dominic said: “I’m not really too sure how it came about.
"We got in contact. He’s a cool guy and we just got along really well. We kind of just clicked.”
Dominic is a fan favourite at Everton after joining the squad five years ago and scoring 40 goals in 147 appearances.
But in an interview with a fashion blog, he admitted he is wary of reaction to his bold ways.
He said: “When you do something out of the ordinary, or not what everyone else does, you’re told to focus on training, not fashion or stuff like that. People are a little bit afraid to go against the grain.”
He adds: “You’ve got to kind of get that balance — particularly, I suppose, with what you put out on Instagram.
“You’ve got to be sensitive to how the fans are feeling, as well, sometimes.”
If he triumphs at the Euros, fans will not mind if he makes Harry Styles’ kit look tame.
Bring on the handbags and pearls.
RITA'S GOOD AS GOLD

TAYLOR SWIFT lived up to her Reputation as one of the nicest pop stars in the business after hearing how two of her fans had been swept out to sea.
Sara Feeney and her cousin Ellen Glynn were on paddle boards when they were pulled into deep waters from a beach in Galway, Ireland.
The pair sang Taylor’s songs to keep their spirits up during their 15-hour ordeal before a fisherman rescued them.
Taylor, who will release her re-recorded 2012 album Red on November 19, sent the pair a painting she had done herself and other goodies when she heard about the incident, which took place last summer.
A source said: “Taylor wanted to give them a treat. Both girls were so touched.”
SELENA'S A COVER STAR
SELENA GOMEZ looked more like a Star Wars character than a stylish singer in her latest photoshoot for Vogue Australia, although her cover image was worthy of a gold star.
The US singer revealed she had taken up cooking, telling the mag: “During quarantine I was like, ‘What is something I can put out in the world that can make people laugh or smile?’
“And what do I love more than anything? Food’.”

WE NOSE IT, KHLOE
IN the world’s least surprising news ever, Khloe Kardashian has finally admitted to having had cosmetic surgery.
On the second episode of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, which aired in the US on Sunday night, the reality star confirmed what we all knew.
Khloe said: “Everyone says, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s had her third face transplant’, but I’ve had one nose job.”
She also hinted she’d had fillers, adding: “I’ve done, sure, injections.
“Not really Botox. I’ve responded horribly to Botox.”
BEN’S EX & ALEX COSY AT PARTY
IT’S one of the most glamorous romantic merry-go-rounds in the showbiz world, with Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck now very much back together after being spotted locking lips last week.
But in a fresh twist, J-Lo’s ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez was spotted hanging out with Ben’s former love Lindsay Shookus on Saturday – helping to celebrate her birthday.
It’s certainly an intriguing coincidence – and no doubt the pair had plenty to talk about.
A video from Lindsay’s birthday party shows baseball ace Alex sitting side-by-side with the TV producer at an intimate get-together in the Hamptons, while TV magician Josh Beckerman did a routine for the guests.
The clip was posted to Beckerman’s Instagram Stories with the message, “Happy bday @shookushookus!” The birthday of Ben’s ex Lindsay is June 18.
A source said: “It’s certainly going to raise eyebrows, given Ben and Jennifer are back together so publicly.
“What are the chances that both of their exes have now hooked up? It’s started a lot of whispering on the rumour mill.”
But reps for the duo insist they are just good friends and moved to shoot down talk of romance as quickly as possible.
A representative for A-Rod said: “There is absolutely zero there. They’ve been friends for 15 years.”
But it’s hard not to be intrigued all the same.
KENDALL IN DEVIN HEAVEN
KENDALL JENNER has spoken about boyfriend Devin Booker for the first time.
It comes after she posted a snap of them celebrating their one-year anniversary earlier this month.
She said of the basketball star: “He’s my boyfriend.”
But the reality TV star, speaking during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, added that she likes to keep her romance, and Devin, as private as possible.
She said: “It’s always worked better for me that way. It was personal preference from a young age.
“It makes my life a lot easier and our relationship a lot better, to be honest.
“I just feel like it’s a private matter and not for anybody else to judge or know.”
She added: “No offence to my older sisters, but I think (younger sister) Kylie and I have had the opportunity to watch our older sisters go through marriages and relationships and break-ups and do them pretty publicly.”
