Lily Allen for Chanel Handbags F/W 09



I don't like anything about these ads. To start off, Lily Allen is probably the last person I would look to as a fashionable gal. Yo-yoing weight, brightly colored hair and a penchant for nose candy, Allen is one hot mess, in a bad way.

Which brings me to the handbags; are they supposed to be bloated? It is like they are those puffy winter coats everyone hates wearing because you look like the Michelin man. I don't understand the need for a puffy handbag or the washed up singer. What was Karl thinking?

i don't mind the bags but i remember seeing the first ad (the one on the right) and doing a double take like "is that lily?!" and concluding that it couldn't possibly be. what's the point in putting a recognizable person in an ad and making them wholly unrecognizable? where lily's are concerned, let's stick to donaldson :)

she's like lohan for ungaro. just placed as a "embellishment" in order for people to pay more attention to the brand..

I completely disagree. In the past two years Lily Allen has really brought forth her creative design through clothing. Almost the Lady Gaga of Britain. I love Lily Allens style. Now.
