Lily Allen got married on the weekend, and looked very happy with what turns out to be a double celebration – she’s also pregnant. I really like Lily, especially after watching the Channel 4 series about the shop she set up with her sister. She’s obviously intelligent, very down to earth, and all round awesome. So I wanted to like her wedding dress.
The thing is, as separate elements, I liked her outfit. Her dress was very boho cool, and her veil was beautiful. And together they might have worked on a much taller girl, though I’m not sure. It just felt like it overwhelmed her – there was an awful lot of dress and an awful lot of veil and not much of Lily going on.
I think had she gone with the same veil, but with a simpler, straight sleeveless dress (flapper style) that showed a bit of ankle, she would have looked awesome. Or if she’d gone with the dress, but had something simpler like a flower in her hair, ditto. Together, I’m just not convinced.
Am I off the mark here? What do you think?!
If you want to get your hands on a Delphine Manivet dress like the v. pretty one on the right (Raphael), Browns Bride stocks them.
