In Pictures: Manchester City players show support as Joleon Lescott launches new clothing range

The Toure brothers competed with their own style choices whilst team-mates took an opportunity to kit out their wardrobes for the summer months at the defender's fashion event

Manchester City's stars attended the launch of Joleon Lescott's new fashion range on Tuesday night in Manchester.

Joe Hart, Micah Richards, James Milner, Nigel De Jong, Gareth Barry amongst others were all in attendance as the Lescott/Stewart range was launched.

Curiously there was no sign of fashion-conscious Mario Balotelli, but perhaps he was occupied with his partner Raffaella Fico after she announced their impending wedding.

Former players Shay Given and Stephen Ireland turned up with their partners too as the launch moved to a full-on party.

Lescott later tweeted: "Thanx for all the support shown and twitted tonight, about @LescottStewart launch party," as the joint venture with his two brothers officially got off the ground.

As expected, the man with an unparalleled sense of style (Stephen Ireland) was in attendance

The party also drew interest from Coronation Street actresses Brooke Vincent (WAG to Josh McEachran) and Michelle Keegan.

Showing their support to the football fraternity...

City travel to seemingly doomed Wolves on Sunday before preparing for the big clash at the Etihad Stadium a week later as title rivals Manchester United look to seal their 20th top flight honour.
