She became one of the most famous fashion-loving WAGS when husband Wayne Rooney first burst onto the footballing scene.

And nearly two decades later, Coleen Rooney ensures she maintains a stylish appearance.

The 30-year-old emerged on Thursday looking chic in a black and white leopardprint dress as she headed out to a fashion lunch in Manchester.

The frock reached the star’s mid-thigh and was teamed with a pair of black lace up heels and a coordinating clutch bag.

A high ponytail and dark brown eye make-up added to the look as the smiling mother of three headed into the city’s trendy Rosso restaurant to the Phillip Armstrong fashion event.

The star was smiling after a rather turbulent couple of weeks where husband Wayne hit headlines for perhaps celebrating England’s success too hard last weekend.

The England captain faced huge backlash after he was pictured looking worse for wear in the team’s international gear, during a wedding at The Grove hotel.

FA sources confirmed that the interim manager intervened and told Rooney to call it a night at a reasonable time, only for the Manchester United striker to continue drinking until 5am.

The Sun claimed the footballer was seen ‘stumbling around’ and could ‘barely speak’ as England players and staff enjoyed a night off on Saturday, after winning their qualifying match against Scotland.

The Manchester United captain then missed the 2-2 draw with Spain with what was described as a minor knee injury three days later.

He was later forced to issue a public apology, and his position as captain has since come under threat.

But it’s no wonder that Coleen is staying strong by his side amid the difficult time – having publicly defended him against critics before.

Last month, the WAG launched a passionate defence of the Manchester United captain on Twitter after hearing criticism of him on the radio.

Coleen took to Twitter to vent her dismay after hearing fans explain on the radio why they had booed him at Wembley during England’s 2-0 victory over Malta.

She wrote furiously: ‘Love the way Anyone (sic) & Everyone has to have an Opinion. Lighten up, life is short, give people a break. Some forget others have feelings too,’ she tweeted.

Coleen married Manchester United footballer Wayne in 2008, after dating for six years, and now have three children together – Kai, 7, Klay, three, and ten-month-old Kit.
