Lucy in Disguise and Lily Allen

I was sooooo moved watching Lily Allen’s From Riches to Rags last night. I’m not a huge Lily fan, but any woman/mum would feel for her…and the clothes they were picking for their Lucy in Disguise boutique were also amazing.

It somehow feels shallow talking about the fashion after Lils went through so much heartbreak, but that’s why they did the show, so let’s blow virtual kisses to her and get on with the dress talk.

a) If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s worth checking the series out on 4OD just to lust over the v lovely vintage.

b) I bloody loved this pink 70s-style maxi dress she wore at the opening of the boutique in the final episode. Just beautiful.

c) As mentioned at the end of the show, Lily and her sister, Sarah Owen, are moving into ready-to-wear with a collection of vintage-inspired designs for AW11: “The collection revolves around dresses, including Fortnums, a crepe tea dress with lily of the valley print; Chatsworth, a green maxi-dress decorated with sequins, and Capone, a black sequined and beaded tulle dress.”

I need to see this Chatsworth business, don’t you??

The collection launches in June at Harvey Nichols, at the Lucy in Disguise London store and via www.lucyindisguiselondon.com. I for one, can’t wait.
