Lily Allen has said she thinks it would be irresponsible for her to design a range of maternity clothes because her fans shouldn’t be thinking about getting pregnant.
Speaking as she opened the Harrods’ winter sale on Thursday, she said: “I’ve had a lot of offers from people to do my own maternity range but I don’t think it is the right message to send to young Britain.”
“I’m not the best example. I’m pregnant and a bit young, aren’t I?”
“My demographic is generally young girls, so I don’t think a maternity line is suitable. It isn’t the best impression to give them.”
Lily designed a range of dresses and accessories for New Look last year but is rumoured to have moved on from the high street chain after making influential friends in the haute couture world.
Her recent weight loss also prompted her to move away from her signature big-skirted “chav-chic” look but she knows that soon enough she’ll have to exchange her sleek designer dress for more accommodating ones: “I expect I’ll be in maternity ones next year - big old dresses for big lumps.”
