There was only one choice for style icon of the month for June – beautiful bride and glowing bride-to-be Lily Allen. I have been a fan of Lily’s style since I saw her at Glastonbury wearing a multi-coloured ball gown and hi-top trainers. She had that eclectic mix of vintage and street style that made her look totally original. I was a fan of her Lily Loves collection for New Look (Still have two dresses in my wardrobe), and just thought she was a total one-off, an English eccentric.
Lily’s style has grown over the years, she has developed a penchant for Chanel and for vintage dresses and pieces. She has left the music industry for the time being, and is concentrating on what is turning into a vintage clothing empire, ‘Lucy in Disguise’. With sister Sarah, this month has seen the launch of her vintage inspired collections in Harvey Nichols stores nationwide, with Lily wearing key looks from the collection.
This month has also seen Lily’s wedding featuring not one, but two, vintage style wedding dresses. The main dress was a beautiful 1920’s style lace creation by french designer Delphine Manivet, whilst the evening bought a medieval style number by Karl Lagerfeld. Both were exquisite in their styling and detail, and I loved the Juliet style veil she wore.
Lily took a honeymoon in Paris, where she covered her bump in classy fashion with a large Chanel bag, and then took in a Louis Vuitton show wearing leopard print. That’s my idea of a honeymoon.
Here are some key looks from Lily’s month.
