Style Files: A Clog Too Far

Nicola McLean in London

London is one of the greatest cities in the world but the level of homelessness you see out on the streets is really sad. This poor woman has to wear clogs and sport socks for goodness’ sake.

Oh, no wait. This isn’t a down-and-out lady dealing valiantly with destitution, poverty and strife: it’s Nicola McLean* on an “off day”, waiting to catch a taxi after getting her hair done at Inanch salon in London. Our apologies.

Don’t misunderstand – we applaud WAGs who are cool with doing the casual thing on errand/laundry days. And it’s not like we’ve never dashed out for a pint of milk looking raggedy around the edges.

It’s just… when it comes to clogs and sweat socks? Unless you’ve forgotten to take your medication or you are focusing on shelter rather than style, never the twain shall meet, dear friends. Never the twain shall meet.

*Seriously – we’re finding this hard to believe the photo agency credit stating that this  is Nicola McLean. Compare and contrast.

  10. Linkedup says:

    Looked up the compare and contrast and she looked just as chavvy there as she did in the clogs picture. This is one bonkers woman.

  11. Amy says:

    OMG!!! This outfit beats every Elen Rives horror fashion show! And belive me, it´s not easy to beat Elen when it comes to style….

  12. Ella says:

    This picture is going to give me nightmares for weeks. I can't remember the last time I saw something this scary.

  13. jenny says:

    I agree, this is not Nicola. It looks like either Elen Rives or Cheryl Cole. Whoever it is, damn girl! Did you get locked out of the house naked and have to steal what was on your neighbor’s clothesline???

  14. teamtoto says:

    “Nicola McLean* on an “off day”” Wow, I guess I can understand you being kind on a Friday (I wouldn’t expect this kind of language on a Monday post…)
    In my opinion there is nothing right about this outfit, though after looking her up on Wikipedia and discovering she supports PETA I feel a little more affectionate towards her.

    I’m guessing she could be a member of one of those weird cults (not that there are any normal cults) or religions where they predict the day the world will come to an end, and the final judgement and whatever, and they announced it was happening the day she was papped wearing this. Her Apocalypse outfit. ( Look at her hands she could be mid-prayer.)

    I can only picture this scenario:

    Nicola got robbed of all her clothes. She dropped her shopping and calls for assistance. In the meantime, kind passers by have supplied her with random items of clothing that they felt they could spare.

  18. Wow, I would have laid my 2001/02 season football sticker collection (including the glittery Michael Owen) on this being Elen.

    I’m with you though, Kickette. It really doesn’t look like Nicola. That might just be because she’s clothed. Not something you see very often.
