You can never predict who the fashion industry will pick as the next big thing. It seems that Chanel’s chief designer, Karl Lagerfeld, has fallen for blogger favorite Lily Allen. The sneaker and big hooped earring wearing pop star has been spotted hanging around Chanel’s office.
Leave it to The Sun to get the scoop, on which a “fashion source” said: “Nothing is set in stone but Karl believes she has come up with a look that will define 2007. It’s all about wearing really classy clothes in a different context. He is keen to dress her and work with her.”
While Lily strolls around in her fancy new duds, we continue to wait for the domestic release of her debut album, due out on January 30 via Capitol Records. I guess the next time she rolls through North America for another tour, she’ll have a whole new wardrobe to show off.
