Helen Flanagan: WAG Wardrobe Fail

Helen Flanagan (dating Scott Sinclair, Wigan) is fairly new to the WAG game, and perhaps it’s time for one of the old-school ladies to pull her aside and give her a few tips about WAG wardrobe protocol.

What are we on about? Well, the pretty and fresh-of-face Helen, has been papped in the same outfit three times. Yes, the the first cardinal sin of WAGdom.

Let’s get to the details of this highly serious crime:

Helen was first spotted in a peace sign t-shirt, classic Chanel bag, and questionable python platform combo in late April while looking like she was dragged through a hedge backwards on the Coronation Street set. (We must add that the shirt is part of fellow WAG Nicola Tappenden’s clothing line, with proceeds going to the Help for Heroes charity.)

One week later, she was pictured in the same sartorial trifecta when out shooting some promo shots for the clothing line with Nicola. Helen resurrected the outfit once again last week (pictured above) while out shopping in Manchester.

Fair play to Helen for supporting one of her WAG sisters, we’re all over that. But still, might we suggest Helen’s penance for such a wardrobe sin would include getting thee to Selfridge’s post haste and maxing out thy MasterCard followed by a debaucherous evening on the tiles? We do hope she complies.

    I do not see this outfit as a particularly heinous offence, perhaps with the exception of the shoes. I take issue with you deriding her repeatedly wearing the outfit..WHAT DOES IT MATTER!! So what if she doesn't splash out on a ridiculously overpriced piece by the designer du jour! It is vulgar and offensive to advocate throwing money out like confetti on friviloties like designer clothes in this day and age, when people are struggling to subside from day to day. And as if saying Chanel is some saving grace for the pure fact that it's Chanel?

    Pathetic, Kickette, absolutely pathetic.

  2. I think Helen is influenced too much by her Corrie character, Rosie. Too trashy, too tight, too yuck!

    i dont like her outfit,but she is pretty and seems kind.

  4. Ana;) says:

    Who cares if she's wearing the same thing it's not like her Wigan baller or job is raking in as much as other wags a-list premier league ballers

    and it's not like she's wearing the same outfit day after day too… Call me kind but don't be mean lol

    OK I don't think the outfit is that bad, its just that she has too much clothes going on that it looks bad. Also she only wore the shirt three times and not the same outfit and I don't think that's bad. If she wore the same exact outfit THEN IT WOULD BE BAD!

  6. missbubbles says:

    she seems totally sweet to me and why shouldn´t she wear same clothes if she wants? Give her a break and let her be normal!!!!!

  7. rubyqueen says:

    i know i maybe wrong here.??but i looooooove the jacket and the shoes..it’s just the pants that fail me big time.!!!but i like helen she’s a gorgeous girl.xx

  8. Susie says:

    Ive seen much worse on Kickette…atleast she doesnt look vulgar.

    She's cute, Ill give her a pass on the fashion infractions.

    There are too many things wrong with that picture.I think the Chanel shows us that there is still a tiny little bit of hope. SOMEONE GET HER A STYLIST NOW!! …Before it’s too late.

  10. Aw, she looks like a sweet fresh faced Irish lass with that gorgeous complexion, and dark hair, and her smile looks genuine. Plus, she’s driving a Cooper for cryin’ out loud. This WAG stuff must be new to her. (Must consult FTC – she knows all the Wigan lads and their girls.) So I’ll give her a “Must Try Harder”, rather than an “Fail”.

  11. Merel says:

    Cute face. Horrid shoes, crap jeans, mediocore shirt, okay leather jacket. The only good thing is the Chanel.

  12. Lucy says:

    Honestly, just let her be normal and wear the same things if thats what she wants, she dresses for herself not the rest of the world.

  13. elle says:

    some people wear things more than once

    there isn't anything wrong with that, it's quite normal

    i know i do it

    i don't see the problem

  14. Ella says:

    She looks really sweet. I don't like the outfit but to me it's a little refreshing when you see someone out repeating clothes like 'normal' people do. However, I don't believe in repeating the entire ensemble several times close together. She's young, she'll learn! :)

  15. Erin says:

    Based on this photo, I would say she’s new to dressing herself.

  16. C16 says:

    Oh My God!!!!!

    That's all I'm gonna say…

    *writing out Helen's fashion citation*

    Please be advised you are in violation of Wag Rule 6–Sub-section c, which states:

    "Thou Shalt Not Mix Reptilian Shoes with Bovine Jackets."

    PENALTY: Confiscation of Chanel bag to bylaw enforcement officer (me) plus two-day suspension of Wag status.

  18. Anastasia says:

    I'd like to let the repeat wearings go and focus on those hideous jeans.

  19. Emily says:

    very weird gray pants DO NOT work with those shoes – two grays too close together are BAAADDD news. She actually looks like rain with the white shirt acting as the cloud. Her feet are the little pink people dodging puddles on a city street… The dots on the bag only add to the illusion…

  20. E says:

    Those jeans are simply, AWFUL!!!

    WOW…just WOW
