Another day, another Chanel couture number; Lily Allen rocked another red carpet winner at yesterday’s Ivor Novello awards.

For yesterday’s 59th Ivor Novello Awards, Lily wore a dusty pink Chanel Couture dress.

The exquisite tunic-style mini-dress featured a grandad collar and shimmering sequins.

This dress is from the Chanel Couture Spring 2010 collection; infamously Karl Lagerfeld’s first collection to not feature any black or navy outfits.

Lily styled the look with platform Christian Louboutins and the same butter-milk patent clutch she toted in Cannes earlier this week.

I was not a fan of her mismatched accessorising, but I liked how she modernised the couture dress with a fishtail braid and fuchsia pink lip.

Lily (29) is an avid Chanel fan and friend of creative director Karl Lagerfeld.

Earlier this month, she celebrated her impending birthday and album launch at the launch of the new Chanel fragrance at Sothebys auction house.

Lily’s new album Sheezus has received positive reviews, but was too late to enter into the Ivor award categories.

The Ivor Novello Awards aim to promote and recognise excellence in music writing in Britain.

Young British acts including Laura Mvula, Sam Smith, John Newman and Emilé Sandé also attended the event in the swanky Grosvenor Hotel.

Winners included songs penned for and by artists Passenger, London Grammar, Nick Cave, Mumford & Sons and Tom Odell.

The event also honoured iconic singer-songwriter Christine McVie, of Fleetwood Mac fame.
