Updated on March 13th: Allen tweeted that she has now located her fairytale gown. "OK, EVERYONE RELAX, I FOUND IT !!!!!!!!! A couple of weeks ago now."

When you're a world famous pop star, apparently you become a little careless with your clothes. Even if they cost £200,000.

Asked what the most expensive item of clothing in her wardrobe is on 4Music's Rock The Look with Rimmel London, Lily Allen replied: "There's two bits to this answer. One is that it's not in my wardrobe, it's gone missing. And two, it's my Chanel Couture wedding dress that's worth about £200,000."

How could something like that go missing, asks presenter Miquita Oliver? "It's gone. I don't know where it is," replies Allen.

The bell-sleeved, empire-line chiffon creation was made for the singer by Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld, with whom she is friends. Allen has a strong relationship with the brand after starring in adverts for the label's Cocoon bags in 2009.

Though she wore a lace dress by French designer Delphine Manivet for the actual wedding ceremony, Allen changed into the Chanel number for the reception, which was held in the grounds of her Gloucestershire home in June 2011.

Really Lily, how on earth do you 'lose' a dress that costs the equivalent of a family home? Tut tut.
