LILY Allen Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at the UK leading jobbing celebrity, with AMtthew D’Ancona and heel:

IT is not often that LILY ALLEN makes it on to our best dressed list. But she totally outshone the competition in this cute outfit. The secret to the success of her look lies in those heels. Her Louis Vuitton 7in stilettos would make even the most balanced of us topple over. But Lil took it all in her stride.

More than once in our conversation she compares herself to Amy Winehouse, who is routinely presented as Borg to her McEnroe, Ovett to her Coe. But this is a category mistake. Born in Southgate though she was, Winehouse is quite specifically a (majestic) practitioner of the American musical arts: Motown, R&B, Al Green, Etta James, Sarah Vaughan. In contrast, Lily Allen fits into a distinctive and quite separate English tradition of word-play, irony and lyrical flourish…Having famously rhymed ‘al fresco’ with ‘Tesco’, she offers, in a new track about God, the following couplet: ‘Do you think He’s ever been suicidal?/ His favourite band is Creedence Clearwater Revival.’ Only in England could such a line be written or, indeed, relished.
