Muse of the Month: Lily Allen

Outspoken Brit pop starlet Lily Allen has gone from bad to good in the style stakes. What used to be a chav, hip hop girl (gold chains and Nike Air runners), she has now gone towards a girly look (Marc Jacobs or other designer handbags and cute vintage dresses).

Although she hasn’t ditched the attitude or the runners (for day wear), her style has evolved into a more glamorous and polished lookKarl Lagerfeld describes her as “fun” and she’ll be photographed by him for a handbag advertising campaign for Chanel soon.

Lily Allen makes dresses look casual with a pair of runners (cutt off the photo here) when was spotted out near her home in North London. She was wearing a Miss Selfridge grey leopard print dress with a long cardigan. She accessorized with her favourite YSL handbag.

You can pick up a similar granddad style, long cardigan from Zara.

While at Selfridges in London celebrating the 100th year of the shop, she was alongside the London Mayor, Erin O’Connor (a previous Muse of the Month), Jodie Kidd and others.

Lily shows that she knows how to wear bold colours in a fresh way. The pop star rocked the biker jacket trend and wore Acne’s Smith Biker Jacket (£590 from Net-a-porter) in a shade of jungle green suede (it’s also available in crimson and black ).

The loose fit makes it the ideal piece to throw over a dress as she does here.  On another occasion leaving the Tabernacle music venue in London she wore the jacket with boyfriend jeans.

A huge fan of designer handbags and a key part of her look, Allen is pictured left with an Yves Saint Laurent one. She has also been seen in the past with a Prada Royal Calf Rosette Clutch.

Lily Allen went floor length sophisticated in a fab dark blue dress (no it’s not black) for an evening at Automat in London. Again her green suede Acne jacket came out, the third outfit we’ve seen her wear it with. We are loving the nude shoes, Chanel pearl necklace and dark nail polish on her too.

    […] From the opening ‘cockadoodle do’, Karl Lagerfeld’s rustic runway complete with barn house and hay shacks was a fun, relaxed affair. The collection was soft and pretty with lots of lace, chiffon and tweed in neutral, cream and black tones. The models, with lose soft hair, smiled the whole way through before a ‘roll in the hay’ at the end and a performance from Lily Allen. […]
