Lily Allen Shows Us Lucy in Disguise

For those of you who were wondering where Lily Allen has been, she’s finally stepped out in a new spotlight. Of course that spotlight is as a new celebrity designer. The star has released a line entitled “Lucy in Disguise” in collaboration with her sister Sarah Owen. A lot of the collection is vintage inspired, so if you’re curious and have some room in your wardrobe, head over to their new boutique, Selfridges’ Wonder Room, in London.

Three Magazine Covers, One Very Popular Dress

Styled by

How did the same dress end up on three different high-fashion magazine covers? That’s what we — and Guardian reporter Imogen Fox — really want to know.

The dress, an appliqued Miu Miu creation, is on W, British Vogue and Elle UK. To be fair, we should mention that the dress Lily Allen wears on the cover of Elle is done in a muted lilac lace, while Eva Mendes (on W’s cover) and Swedish model Freja Beha Erichsen (on British Vogue) are both seen in the yellow version.

So how did it happen? We’re flabbergasted, and, well, so is Fox:

Surprisingly, this sort of cover multiplicity is rare. Actors frequently chalk up multiple dresses in the same month, but not magazine covers. There are good reasons for this. Fashion press officers work hard to achieve a delicate UN-style political balance between glossies to make sure that these kinds of overlaps don’t happen. “Usually press offices are pretty good at making sure we don’t get the same dress as our rivals,” says Lorraine Candy, Elle’s editor.

So we have to wonder what happened here — could Miu Miu be so hard up for publicity that it would need to trick three magazines into using its dress? Do we really believe Miuccia Prada is capable of doing something so schemey? No. She’s a sweetheart. And she makes really good clothes — good clothes that, clearly, beg to be photographed.

Lily Allen Covers Elle UK

Styled by



Ever since Lily Allen decided to come out from boozing it up seclusion, shes been writing songs for the Bridget Jones Diary musical and apparently shooting the cover of Elle UK‘s August issue.

The music industry “retiree” is looking good, which is a pleasant surprise.

It’s funny how public she made her retirement from the music industry, yet she’s currently writing lyrics for the Bridget Jones‘ musical.

Ha, before we know it she’ll probably be releasing a new album of her own.

Girlfriend might be planning for a comeback, what do U think?

In Case You Care: Courtney Love Lashes Out at Lily Allen

Courtney Love, who is rather candid about her feelings in the press, called out Lily Allen this past week, after the English songbird didn’t allow Love to don a Chanel dress (for free) to the BRIT Awards.

Allen has an exclusive deal with the fashion house, and chose to enjoy her status by being the only lady dressed in Chanel.  However, Love had this to say on Absolute Radio, “I wanted a Chanel couture dress but Lily Allen blocked them out. And that’s lame, because I remember J-Lo had a lock out on Valentino one year but she shared with me.”

I guess Courtney will just have to start paying for her red-carpet apparel from now on.

MOMENT OF STYLE: Lily Allen

I usually don’t like the way Lily dresses, and this isn’t the best photo, but I really like this look. I love the dress, the color is gorgeous, especially with the semi-matching lip color, also love the contrast of the lavender bag next to the coral of the dress.
