‘The way I see it, you should live everyday like it's your birthday.’ Do you know who said that? The worldly-wise Paris Hilton. Who could imagine that her theory would resonate so strongly with today’s birthday girl, Lily Allen?
The 29-year old songstress has been treating her comeback – full of Twitter feuds, on-stage shenanigans and controversial lyrics – with a fashion marathon that looks like a series of special ensembles suitable for one constant birthday party.
Lily's looks from last nights Chanel and Fendi parties in London [Rex]
Since the arrival of her return single, ‘Hard Out Here’, Lily has been riding a clothing conveyor belt. According to an interview with Glamour magazine this month, part of the reason she returned to the limelight is that she ‘missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants’, so we can’t blame her for going mad for it second time around. With more new hair-dos than hot dinners, plus multi-coloured and ever-changing nail art, leotards, crop-tops, sequinned joggers, kooky sweaters, fancy frocks and an array of bold Chanel bags…. Lily now looks like she’s always en route to a bash.
She certainly was last night– two in fact. First a trip to Covent Garden for Chanel’s launch of The Mystery Bottle, then onto Bond Street for a Fendi store opening hosted by her ol’ pal, Karl Lagerfeld. Arriving in a shaggy fur coat and a pom-pom monster-covered bag from the Italian uber-label, plus sky-high Louboutins and a cheeky grin, Miss Allen rang in her actual birthday in the same fashion-brave way she’s been doing for months now.
