Girl of the Month
We love a good mashup (The Doors/Blondie fusion Rapture Rider was our myspace song), so naturally we've been feeling the style sense of London's Lily Allen. Her chav couture taste blends girly-girl (vintage dresses, Marc Jacobs handbags) with hip-hop (Nike Air Max 90's and gold chains). We're not the only ones who are noticing. After Karl Lagerfeld flew Ms. Allen to the spring Chanel show in Paris, the UK press has speculated that she may be the fashion house's new face (we're not so sure about that but, we love her anyway). The august and haute Lagerfeld working with outspoken and street Allen? Now that would be a mashup for the books.
