Lily Allen Wears Spanx… And Nothing Else!


Do we really know what goes on behind the scenes in the celebs’ dressing rooms? Well recently the popstar Lily Allen gave us an insight when she took an Instagram video of herself singing and dancing along to Drake’s Started From The Bottom in just a pair of Spanx shape wear with the caption: “cool mum”.

Steal the Air Balloon hitmaker’s style by wearing the Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power but this time with a sequinned ombré style dress. This clever shapewear irons out any lumps and bumps and leaves you with a stunning silhouette thanks to their tummy control panels and overall strong control. The addition of ultra-flat seams means that these shaping shorts are ideal for special occasions like weddings or nights out where you want to wear a figure-hugging dress.

Clearly a big fan of Spanx, we wonder whether Lily wore the Spanx Power Mama when she was pregnant with her three children. These ingenious shaping shorts provide support for the mum-to-be’s back while trimming the silhouette. Maternity wear just got luxe. 

Many other celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Emma Watson have been snapped in their Spanx, admittedly they’re normally worn under clothing and spotted by mistake. If you want a pair of shaping shorts that you would almost be happy to reveal, choose the Pretty Polly Lace Shaper Short. Featuring medium control running from the bottom of the mid-thigh to the bra-line, their scalloped edging and floral lace design look absolutely gorgeous while their purse-friendly price won’t stretch the budget.

Lily Allen: Trend Setter and All-round Sensible Girl

We saw the weather forecast this morning and we were officially sulking.  For the next few weeks, the general consensus is that we shouldn’t expect summery weather unless we’re planning on going far, far way: over the next few days, at least, we can look forward to clouds, rain and temperatures plunging to lows of 12 or 13°C.  Not only have we wasted time and money on a leg wax no one is ever going to see, we’ve got a wardrobe full of summer clothes we can’t even wear. 

Thank goodness, then, for Lily Allen, who yesterday did the unthinkable for a celeb and dressed weather appropriately!  Her unseasonal get-up at the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final made sure she had the last laugh whilst, we imagine, the majority of bare-legged celebs shivered under an overcast sky.  Elsewhere, Kate Moss cemented the trend when she was spotted in her opaques at the White Cube gallery in London.

And so our love affair with opaques (which was unexpectedly halted when we had Riviera weather in April) is rekindled.  The addition of opaques and a cardi means that we can still wear our pretty summer dresses and holiday skirts and we don’t have to worry about fake tan for another couple of weeks.  Plus, if the weather veers between oh-no-I’ve-forgotten-my-umbrella torrential rain and oh-no-I’ve-forgotten-my-sunglasses blazing sunshine as it’s prone to do, we can just whip off our tights.

So we’ve decided to celebrate the weather (yes, really!) by buying some new opaquesWe know it’s July, but if it’s good enough for Kate Moss, it’s good enough for us.

Here are three of our favourites…
