Rosario (Argentina): Diego Vallejos is wondering what to wear for his friend's wedding. He must look the part among the celebrities coming to town -- for the groom is football superstar Lionel Messi.
"I am letting my hair grow so that I can get a haircut like a star," the chuckling Vallejos, a waiter by profession in Rosario, the northern Argentine city where he and Messi grew up. Messi marries his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo, 29, on June 30, a week after the player's 30th birthday, in Latin America's celebrity wedding of the decade. Vallejos is one of 250 people on the guest list -- others include Barcelona stars such as Gerard Pique and his popstar wife Shakira, according to Argentina media.
"Most of all I just want to be with Lionel. But I am going to mingle a bit with the other guests at the bash in the City Center hotel and casino," Vallejos said.
