Are You Ready for Some Football? Jordin Sparks, Dania Ramirez and Miranda Cosgrove Share Their Sports Fan Uniforms

Posted on

The PEOPLE StyleWatch team has some pretty serious football loyalties, and as far as we’re concerned, there’s no wrong way to express team pride. (Seriously.) But for those of us who like to cheer our teams on in style (or just need an upgrade from the ratty men’s XL tee we got for free out of the T-shirt cannon in 2002), NFL Women’s Apparel is here for you. And before the first kickoff this year, they’ve enlisted football fans Jordin Sparks, Jessica Szohr, Dania Ramirez and Miranda Cosgrove (plus, Erin Heatherton and China Anne McClain, not pictured) to show off what they’ll be wearing in the stands.

Above, Sparks and Szohr display their team pride: Szohr in a vintage-feeling Green Bay Packers sweater and Sparks in an Arizona Cardinals jersey (styled by Phillip Bloch). And yes, Sparks, the daughter of former N.Y. Giant Phillippi Sparks, knows that’s a controversial choice.

“I was born and raised in Arizona. Although I have an allegiance to the Giants because of my daddy, I bleed Cardinal Red,” she tells PEOPLE. “I’ve always loved the underdog!” But she does credit her dad with fostering her love for football in general, thanks to a little rule-bending on his part: “One of my earliest and favorite [football] memories is when my dad took my brother and me to the training facility and locker room to play instead of school. Sorry, Mom!”

Though Sparks admits to wearing 4-in. heels to sing the anthem at games in the past (“not smart in turf!”) her regular game uniform is a NFL women’s jersey worn “simply and comfortably — maybe with a pair of wedge sneakers.” And one game-day accessory you’re going to see on Sparks this season? Face paint. “Most definitely! I haven’t painted my face yet. This is the year!”

Devious Maids star Ramirez, clad in a lace-up Cleveland Browns tee and orange overcoat, is dressed for cold home games — but she wasn’t always so prepared. “I once wore a Browns football jersey as a dress with high boots to a home game in Cleveland,” she tells PEOPLE. “It was a good idea until I sat there and froze to death! We won that day so I still say it was worth it.”

She’s been a Browns fan forever, but her top football fan event was meeting Jim Brown while filming Spike Lee’s She Hate Me. “It was an incredible moment. Now I’m a friend of him and his wife Monique, who is one of the most amazing women I have met. Watching Browns games has now become an event!” she says. So will we see her in face paint, like Sparks? “I totally would, as long as I can help my team or the bet is high enough.”

Finally, Cosgrove went even more glam with her New Orleans Saints tee from the NFL Tween’s Apparel line, which she jazzed up with sparkling gold pants and a glossy lip (how fun would this be to watch the game at a bar?).
