‘I never understood what you saw in me’: Lily Allen is spotted for the first time since honouring ‘true genius’ Karl Lagerfeld… 10 years after acting as the late Chanel designer’s muse

Lily Allen was spotted for the first time on Tuesday since the announcement of Karl Lagerfeld’s death, after forging a close bond with the designer over the years.

The 33-year-old Smile hitmaker sported an over-sized hoodie with loose-fitting bottoms as she hit the FROW at the Izzue show during LFW at the BFC Show Space.

Her appearance came just hours after she paid tribute to the ‘true genius’ designer, who described her as ‘cool, young and extremely witty’ in 2009.

It was confirmed earlier in the day that iconic fashion designer Karl died in Paris, after battling. The artistic director for Chanel had looked increasingly frail in recent seasons, and had suffered ill health in recent weeks.

A flurry of superstars paid tribute to the star, with Lily offering an impassioned nod to the legendary designer following their years of working together. 

Following her homage to the designer, it was business as usual for Lily as she attended the London Fashion Week show in her edgy ensemble.

Shirking a traditional dress or wild ensemble, the songstress looked comfortable yet chic as she appeared on the FROW in the bold blue jumper.

‘Photographing her for this advertising campaign was fantastic fun. She is extremely inspiring and is completely taken with the bags – with her typical English reserve!”  

Clearly heartbroken at the news, Lily wrote on Tuesday: ‘You made me feel like a princess… I never quite understood what you saw in me…

‘But I am forever grateful for the support that you and Chanel have given me over the last 15 years. Rest In Peace Karl, you were a true genius and will be missed, so much.’
