Lily Allen To Open A Designer Clothing Rental Shop

Breaking News: Lily Allen and her sister are planning to open up a clothing shop and rent out designer looks à la Rent the Runway. The shop will be called Lucy In Disguise and, though we’re fairly sick of celebs thinking they have any business working in fashion, we’re fairly excited about this idea. After all, Lily looks stylish more often than most other celebs her age, she’s a bit edgy, and her Chanel campaign was just far too cute for words. Here’s to hoping some of papa Lagerfeld’s creations show up at Allen’s shop. [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Lily Allen’s Skunky Do

We’re not saying whether or not we’re wild about Lily Allen‘s new ‘do (we’ll leave that up to you), but she is definitely a Hair Model Citizen for busting out something, well, interesting. So she’s got the rock star platinum thing going on: really choppy, thick bangs and plenty of chunks of black. Now the only way to get this look–if you’re interested, that is–is to be prepared to do some serious damage to your hair. You’d have to bleach the whole thing and then separately dye the black, unless you already have black hair and you could just not dye a few strands. On second thought, we’d recommend leaving this look to Lily Allen. [Manchester, 11/17/09] Keep reading »

The Fashion Peacekeepers: How Can Lily Allen Not Be Chanel’s Muse?

There’s kind of a random op-ed in the Femail section of The Daily Mail today called “How Can Lily Allen Be Chanel’s Latest Fashion Muse?” that bemoans Karl Lagerfeld’s apparent fascination with the singer, whom the writer refers to as looking “worse for wear” in the past. It’s curious for several reasons: The paper is known for publishing as much as it possibly can about the real girl vs. models debate–they’re always quick to lay it on thick when it comes to busting airbrushers and acquiring quotes from magazine editors who vow to fight too tiny sample sizes, and they even have a regular feature where they photograph their writers trying on designer clothes worn by celebrities to see how they translate in real life. So why would they bother with a piece by a writer who’s all pissed off about Lily Allen being the latest Chanel girl because she’s not fashion enough? Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Lily Allen Is Not Effing Around When It Comes To The Chunky Necklace Fad

Damn Lily! The singer-turned-Chanel-model showed up at a London party this weekend dripping in (presumably gratis) Chanel hardware. We knew the whole chunky necklace trend was mage right now (Rihanna certainly thinks so), but this rendition is totally intense. We love it but, budget-wise, we’ll probably stick to the DIY version our own Lily recently suggested. [London, 9/07/09] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Lily Allen Takes Eyeshadow To A Whole Notha Level

Lily Allen has been absolutely wowing us with her eye makeup lately, what with all the metallic swooshes and crazy liner. But somehow we missed this photo from last weekend’s V Festival in the U.K. and just had to share. Is it working? You be the judge. But yeah, she totally went there, that’s for sure.

Lily Allen Behind The Scenes, Working It For Chanel (Again)

It’s no-big-whup news that Lily Allen is starring in the new Chanel campaign. In her first foray into Chanel ads, she did the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. But the new 411: We’ve spotted behind-the-scenes photos from the latest installment, courtesy of The Daily Mail. Lily’s posing with Karl (who’s also working it behind the camera) and rocking a seriously layered ‘do. The Mail claims she’s looking sort of nervous, but I’m calling BS on that—Miss Allen is a photo shoot vet, and knows her way around a camera. Check ‘em out… Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Guys Are Scared To Sleep With Lily Allen

  • Lily Allen told Elle UK that men are afraid to date her because their worst traits might end up in a song—like the guy whose crappy bedroom skills are immortalized in the song “Not Fair.” Ah, sucks to be him! “I wish I’d never written ‘Not Fair,’” Allen said. “You know, the thought honestly—really, honestly—never even occurred to me that it would scare men. I thought it might empower women. I thought women would go: ‘Oh God, yes, at last somebody is saying it.’ I didn’t think it would put me in a position where guys would be like, ‘Whoa, no, I’m not sleeping with you in case you write something about it!’” [Showbiz Spy]
  • Police say someone threw a bomb at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Lincoln, NE, yesterday but missed the building. Instead, the Molotov cocktail hit and burned the pavement. The incident occurred after two days of protests at a clinic in Bellevue, NE, which is about 50 miles away from Lincoln. [Action 3 News]
  • A Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, Robert McDonnell, wrote in his master’s thesis two decades ago that working women and feminists are “detrimental” to the family and expressed scorn for “co-habitators, homosexuals and fornicators.” He also called the 1972 Supreme Court decision which legalized the use of birth control by unmarried couples “illogical.” On Saturday, McDonnell said his views have changed as he got older. [Washington Post]—As an unmarried, illogical fornicator, I’m still skeptical.

    Watch Lily Allen Seriously Work The Camera

    Check out this cute behind-the-scenes video of Lily Allen shooting “The London Issue” for Elle UK. Maybe she’s learned some modeling moves from her new bestie Kate Moss, because as mag photog Rankin notes, she kills it. Choice quotes include: “I love a wig on a celebrity”; “Lily is London”; “My weight fluctuates so much; the most important thing is being comfortable”; and “I thought she was gonna be cool, but she’s like, uber-cool.” [Pipeline] Keep reading »

    Lily Allen Freaks Out In Concert

    Lily Allen needs to take her own advice and smile. The 24-year-old started sobbing in the middle of her concert in Finland over the weekend. Through her tears, she told the audience that she had fallen and hurt her back the night before and was on painkillers. The pain and medication combo was making her super emotional. [Metro UK]

    Lily finished the concert but we’re starting to wonder why so many musicians are getting hurt these days… Keep reading »
