Lily Allen In Chanel – XOYO

Lily Allen In Chanel - XOYO

Lily Allen was spotted aboard a hovertrax while taking smoke break outside XOYO in Shoreditch, London on Thursday (August 13), having watched Jay Electronica’s DJ set.

Many have questioned the Lily Allen/Chanel connection, and from this look I think it’s clear: Lily makes the brand look cool.

While some may have made this look overly prissy, Lily styled the colourful Chanel Spring 2014 crop top with a hoddie, sweatpants and sneakers, therefore totally making the look her own.

I don’t know about you, but I’m buying what she’s selling.

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture - Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen performed during the Rose Ball 2015 in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation at Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday (March 28) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

Sporting new dyed blonde tresses, the British singer wore a custom-made fringed Chanel Couture pink tulle gown with embroidered with silver sequins and pink pearls, but it’s the pink velvet coat with a collar embroidered with camellias which really made this look stand out.

Call me crazy, but I do find myself admiring the handiwork of Karl Lagerfeld’s pink coat.

It takes a certain kind of person to pull off such a creation, and Lily totally did justice to the look no matter how crazy it may appear.

Below is the sketch by Karl Lagerfeld and some pictures of the making of Lily Allen’s outfit.

Chanel Metiers d’Art Collection Pre-Fall 2015 Paris-Salzburg Front Row

Chanel Metiers d'Art Collection 201415 Paris-Salzburg Front Row

The Chanel Metiers d’Art Collection 2014/15 Paris-Salzburg was hosted on Tuesday (December 2) in Salzburg, Austria. Chanel-bedecked pretties were seated front and centre for the show.

Rooney Mara: The actress was dressed in a Chanel Fall 2014 Couture grey organza dress embellished with small concrete cubes and accented by balloon sleeves that corresponded with the full skirt embroidered with grey and gold rubber ribbons. Because the frock in itself was an art piece, she let it be the main exhibit with simple Chanel black pumps and the lightest sprinkling of Chanel Fine Jewelry to finish this statement look. The silhouette was girly, but the edginess was in the style-forward construction and materials.

Lily Allen: Working her own brand of edginess, the singer wore a Chanel Spring 2015 short-sleeve grey tweed coat over a blue knit top. It was rather demure—from the waist up. The Chanel Resort 2015 black sheer lace pants put the suggestive pop into this look, with a kitschy ‘lait de Coco’ Chanel milk-carton bag adding a final punch of humour. I just cannot get past her faded coral hair colour at the moment, though.

Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey: Working a sophisticated angle, the Franco-Spanish starlet wore a Chanel Spring 2015 matching black and white printed organza top and skirt with Chanel Fine Jewelry. Prim and feminine, she topped it off with mannish twist with her buckle boots and black tights.

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen turned heads with her own version of a mullet, as she entered the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1), which were held at the London Coliseum in London, England.

Never one to be a shrinking violet, she continued to indulge her quirky style personality in a Vivienne Westwood Spring 2015 baby-blue gown.

The short, cowl-neck dress was enveloped by a cape at the back, lending itself to a high-low effect. Unfortunately, the look translated as rumpled and ill-fitting.

For better or worse, the devilish styling helped distract attention away from the frock. Attaching a costume-y pair of gold-tipped pink horns within her melon-hued pixie cut, Lily finished the look with similarly silly and puzzling accessories. Nude pumps with teal toecaps and that metal chain handbag belonged nowhere near this concoction.

The devil’s all in the details of this mystifying look. Lily’s guardian fashion angels must have taken the day off.

Lily Allen In Shrimps – Sushisamba

Lily Allen In Shrimps - Sushisamba

Lily Allen and husband Sam Cooper were spotted leaving Sushisamba after Lily’s performance at the second anniversary party of the restaurant in London last night (November 11).

The singer wore a black hooded tracksuit with a Shrimps faux fur coat from the London brand’s Fall 2014 collection.

These striped coats are becoming quite a celebrity favourite, with London lovelies such as Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne big fans of not only their coats, but also their clutches and scarves.

This quirky coat couldn’t be more perfect for the singer’s often offbeat style, but the head scratcher is wearing a faux fur coat with open-toe sandals.

Chanel Dinner Celebrating ‘N°5 THE FILM’ By Baz Luhrmann

Chanel Dinner Celebrating 'No5 THE FILM' By Baz Luhrmann

Chanel hosted a dinner party yesterday evening (October 13) in New York City to celebrate N°5 THE FILM by Baz Luhrmann, with plenty of usual suspects hitting the red carpet.

Lily Allen: Always on hand to show support for any Chanel project, the British singer wore a Chanel Resort 2015 boucle multi-coloured dress, which was presented as a coat, bringing a mod touch to her look with platform Chelsea boots.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite looked beautiful and graceful wearing a colourful chiffon Resort 2015 look comprising three tiers, which she effortlessly styled with a blue Chanel clutch. She was by far my favourite at this event.

Gisele Bündchen: The Brazilian model, who appears in the film, selected a look from Chanel’s Fall 2014 Couture collection. Complementing the shimmering silver embellished look with silver accessories including a gorgeous pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Minati’ pumps with an asymmetrical strap, I can’t help but feel that no matter what she wears, she always looks the same. This is usually a good thing, but not on this occasion. She’s just doesn’t strike me as a Chanel girl. Her over the top posing at this event proved that.
