Helen Flanagan has hair wardrobe malfunction AND narrowly avoids a nip slip in lingerie corset, manages to smile through it though

Helen Flanagan has shown what a pro she is today, managing to smile through a hair wardrobe malfunction AND a near nip slip at the launch of her latest campaign for PETA.

Helen Flanagan's hair extensions were visible AND she narrowly avoided a nip slip. Copyright [Rex]Helen stepped out at the launch wearing a very revealing lingerie top (we've checked - it actually IS underwear) which definitely highlighted her best assets, but was so low-cut we're surprised they didn't break free.

She also had her hair pulled up into a high ponytail, but as she turned her head to the side, her hair extensions were clearly visible.

We like the fact that Helen clearly treated the photoshoot for PETA the same as a selfie, and pulled her best pout for the advert.

The actress, 22, ran into trouble earlier in the year, however, after posting multiple photos of her leather handbags.

Critics were quick to point out that PETA campaigns against the use of leather, calling it a 'global killer'.

She took to Twitter to say: "I'm sorry but this is ridiculous leave me alone! Ive done something for charity - exotic animals are killed in a cruel way for there skins. Leather is not. Stop picking on me. Enough." [sic]

A PETA spokesman told omg! at the time: "After recently learning that snakes killed for their skin are often nailed to trees and skinned alive and that raccoons and foxes are routinely anally electrocuted in the fur industry, Helen has made the compassionate decision never to buy fur or exotic animal skins.

"PETA asks everyone to refrain from wearing leather, wool, shearling and silk."
