Lily Allen’s unconventional wedding dress wasn’t actually designed for nuptials.
Speaking with The Times in 2020, Allen said she had rented one dress, but changed her mind less than two hours before her wedding. She had been shopping at a dress-rental shop in Las Vegas, Nevada, and had tried on “Dolly Parton-esque numbers” alongside her daughter Ethel.
“I had rented a dress, which was on its way to the hotel, then Ethel said, ‘Let’s keep looking,'” she told the publication.
“That dress wasn’t even on the rail, it was in a backroom,” Allen added. “The girl in the shop said, ‘What’s the occasion?’ I was, like, ‘I’m getting married!’ She said, ‘Well, I’ve got this dress, it’s not really a wedding dress …’ I tried it on. Ethel was playing this game called Roblox on my phone. And I said, ‘What do you think?’ She looked at me, looked back at the phone, and said, ‘I really don’t think you’re leaving this shop without it.’ Aged eight.”
