This Saturday saw the wedding of Lily Allen and Sam Cooper, and the surprise but heart warming news that Lily is more than 12 weeks pregnant.
All eyes were on the dress, as Lily is known as a vintage aficionado, who has here own vintage clothes shop, Lucy in Disguise, that she co-runs with sister Sarah, and has recently launched her own vintage-inspired line to be sold through Harvey Nichols. Lily is also a sometime muse of Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, so he was another possible designer name in the frame.
As it was, Lily plumped for an exquisite 1920s style dress by French designer Delphine Manivet, that owed something in style to a certain royal wedding dress, with its long sleeves and use of lace. It perfectly framed her neat baby bump, and looked exquisite when worn with a 1920s style headdress that reminded me of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother´s wedding veil from 1923.
This is definitely one of my favourite wedding looks from this year, and with Kate Middleton, and now Lily, opting for such pretty, elegant, but covered-up gowns, you have to ask, is the penchant for strapless wedding dresses over?
