Lily Allen Page 1
There are a few things you’re going to want to do after you watch this John Lewis Christmas commercial: Curl up into the fetal position; queue up Alright, Still for a pick-me-up; and wonder what you ever did to Lily Allen to make her leave Lucy in Disguise for the sole purpose of kicking you in the gut. (Figuratively.)
Maybe it’s all the holiday cheer, maybe it’s just pure coincidence, but this was the week that everyone we know got engaged. Okay, maybe not people we actually know personally. But famous people who we feel like we know? They all got engaged. And because it seems like the only fair thing to do, let’s pit these newly betrothed couples against each other in a celebrity engagement deathmatch of sorts!
When you think about it, Henry Holland‘s approach to fashion is a little like the way Jeff Koons approaches art: make things that pay homage to mass production that are sometimes so bad or so kitschy, they’re actually really, really good.
It’s official: The 70s trend seen during New York Fashion Week has crossed the pond and landed at London Fashion Week. Topshop Unique‘s runway presentation spring 2011 featured afros, bell bottoms, fringe, platform heels, and no shortage of celebs.
New York Fashion Week may be over, but there are still many, many shows to be seen in the weeks ahead. London Fashion Week has officially kicked off, and Milan and Paris will be following suit shortly. We’re excited about the goings-on across the pond, so we wanted to share the 5 things that excite us most about this season’s London Fashion Week.
The last time we heard from Lily Allen, she was quitting music and dipping her toe in fashion. We’re surprised and kinda pleased to find out that she actually followed through.
The yellow Miu Miu dress you’re looking at is an exquisite creation. But how could it end up on three different high-fashion magazine covers?
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.
Next month’s Harper’s Bazaar Australia features the Brit on the cover. Not unlike the choice of Allen, the subscriber cover is unique for the publication: an illustration by David Bromley of the “fashion rebel” naked from the top up, with the beginnings of a bustled skirt seen at the bottom.
