On Wednesday night, Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen debuted their new Lucy In Disguise ready to wear collection at Harvey Nichols department store.
Like their store of the same name, Lily and Sarah's LID collection is all vintage-inspired. Her sister told Teen Vogue earlier this year their vintage finds for the store was their inspiration:
"Through months of buying for the shop, we came across so many 'if-only' pieces. If only this was in a nicer material, or if only this had an embellishment here. We saw so many things that were nearly on the money, and we thought that with a bit of updating and tweaking, we could create the perfect vintage-inspired outfit. That, and we came across some things that were so brilliant, it was a shame to have only one of them in one size."
But just because they're "vintage-inspired" doesn't mean they're cheap. Bold print dresses start in the mid $200s.
"I think the wedding dress itself is going to cost a small fortune. And her sisters, Teddy and Sarah, who are bridesmaids, are getting Chanel dresses too. If there was a budget for the wedding, it's been completely blown. It's gone from a small intimate family do with close friends, to something huge. There are so many people Lily feels she needs to invite. She also wants the champagne to flow and the food to be amazing."
We can't say we're surprised, but she's allowed. It's only the biggest day of her life.
So brave! Especially after the year that she's had!
According to half-sister Sarah Owen, Lily Allen is not letting her November miscarriage stop her from attempting to have another child, and plans to start trying again with boyfriend Sam Cooper in 2011!
“New Year, new start. Losing the baby has totally devastated her, she’s still grieving. I didn’t realise the impact something like this could have on someone, and as a sister it’s been painful to watch. Lily won’t let this stop her, she is absolutely determined to be a mum. This is what she wants more than anything in the whole wide world, more than her singing career. It’s always been her dream. Lily hasn’t been in a great place, but she’s getting there. It’s been a long, hard road. She is in the country with her boyfriend and doing wholesome things. They’re going to start trying (for a baby) in the New Year.”
We can't begin to imagine how difficult this whole ordeal must be - especially since she had a prior miscarriage in 2008 - so we sincerely hope that they can successfully start a family soon - and with as little heartache as possible!
But now, the younger sister of Louis, Félicité Deakin (pictured above, left, with Louis), has figured out her own way to pay tribute to her mother in a very special manner, and we are SO touched by it.
On Friday, the 16-year-old Deakin shared the following image (below), a gorgeous portrait of the family with her late mother, Johannah Deakin, surrounded by all of her children:
