Lily Allen Goes Grunge for Elle Cover

Lily Allen could easily be mistaken for Courtney Love in her recent grungy photoshoot for a fashion magazine.

The singer graces the cover and the inside pages of this month's issue of Elle magazine- which celebrate 25 years of London Fashion Week.

The shoot, dubbed ‘The Designer Remix’, sees Lily go blonde and in looks created specially by seven of London’s hottest designers, including Richard Nicholl, Luella Bartley and Giles Deacon. Shot by world renowned fashion photographer Rankin and styled by Elle fashion director Anne Marie Curtis, the images reveal a new, tough look for the controversial singer.

The October cover star speaks exclusively to Matthew D’Ancona about fame, personal ambition, self doubt and her reputation as ‘Loudmouth Lily.’ The interview unveils the heart behind Lily and also shows her new ‘older and wiser’ approach to life over the course of what she describes as “the year of the girl”. The trademark London street talk that connects Lily with other Londoners of her generation, makes way to reveal an unexpected shyness.

Lily’s famously opinionated outbursts seem to be something of the past when commenting about her relationships with fellow female artists Little Boots and Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine). “When I was younger, I really didn’t get on with them, but now I kind of do.” Uncharacteristically diplomatic or the start of a new phase for Lily Allen?

Joe: The Rise of Cobra” as Storm Shadow, has joined hands with world-famous fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld in an ad campaign. Also a renowned artist, Lagerfeld will host a photo exhibition in Japan with Lee as his main model. Slated to open for two days starting on September 9, the photo show will be held at Space O in Tokyo under the title “Lee Byung-hun x Karl Lagerfeld.”

Having teamed up for a Japanese beauty site,, the two men met in Paris in mid-April for a shoot.
