Lily Allen ‘considers Lagerfeld wedding gown’

Lily Allen has reportedly been visiting Karl Lagerfeld to discuss her wedding dress.
The 25-year-old British singer became engaged to builder Sam Cooper on Christmas Day last year, while the pair enjoyed a romantic break in the Far East.
The pair have been dating since July 2009, and are said to be organising a traditional affair in the English countryside for their big day. Speculation has been rife over what fashion icon Lily will wear to walk down the aisle.
Now according to reports on WWD the fashionista – who is in France this week while Paris Fashion Week comes to a close - has been visiting Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld to discuss him creating an extra-special robe.
“I'm here to see Karl for my wedding dress," she reportedly said as she waited in the studios of the exclusive French fashion house yesterday afternoon.
Lily has long been a collaborator and pal of flamboyant creator Karl. The songstress fronted the 2009 Chanel Cocoon handbag campaign, and also performed at the label’s Spring/Summer 10 show.
It had previously been thought Lily would wear something vintage, as she adores retro fashion and runs second-hand boutique Lucy In Disguise in London with her sister Sarah Owen. The latest development suggests Lily is now opting for something custom-made for her big day.
