Style Icon: Lily Allen

Lily Allen

Ever since the video for “Smile,” I have been absolutely smitten with Lily Allen’s 50’s-inspired style. She finds a way to wear girly dresses without ever making them look dainty. Accessorizing with sneakers definitely helps – but even in heels her attitude and confidence always shine through…

I love the colors she uses here, accenting the dress with the yellow hair piece – perfection!

A lot of her dresses actually inspire me to take up sewing – that’s how bad I want to own them! I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a dress more than this red little number. The cut, color, length and bow make this dress utterly wearable and adorable.

Lily Allen has definitely impacted my style and inspired me to create a closet that is in large part girly retro dresses. If I could wear dresses every day, I would – and soon I should be able to!

She definitely knows how to do glamor too – this strapless gown is brilliant in its simplicity, and the jewelry and the hair make this look magical.

Lily Allen’s style is always fresh, fun and never boring; she’s one of my favorite celebrities to watch for in magazines. So many celebrities seem to be dressed by the same stylist – it’s so inspiring to see someone whose style is completely unique (and totally retro)!

      Um, everyone has curves… the human race would look exactly like fridges if we didn’t. she isn’t even very curvy herself; she’s a mix of pear/ruler. and she’s skinny btw, just in case you were under the wrong impression that fat or big-boobed = curvy. ;D

    She definitely has great style. She’s very chic with an edge. I especially love her in the yellow dress at the top, stunning.
