You would think someone as famous and fashion-obsessed as Lily Allen would go to great lengths to avoid stepping on Karl Lagerfeld‘s toes. But despite her good first impression — which led Allen to be the face of Karl’s Chanel Cocoon bag — her partying ways proved too much for the relatively even-keeled designer.
Vanessa Paradis may seem like the perfect face for Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel ads, but once upon a time, Lily Allen was the designer’s shining star. According to Contact Music, a source close to the designer claims that the Karl didn’t simply find a new muse, but that Allen was dropped from the ad campaign because of her hardcore party girl image.
While we’re not always the biggest fans of Lily Allen’s style — in fact, we’re often confused by her over the top, mismatched outfits — other people most certainly are. She impressed Karl Lagerfeld enough with her fashion sense to land her the starring role in Chanel’s Fall 2010 handbag advertisements and now, take a deep breath, Project Runway fans, because a new fashion reality tv show is on its way to the small screen — and this time Ms. Allen is the star.
