Lily Allen looked lovely in her Delphine Manivet dress as she married Sam Cooper in England on Saturday. But if the singer chose a gown by the French designer, then why did she visit Chanel’s Paris studios in March, telling the front desk she was there to “see Karl for my wedding dress?” Answer: Chanel — led by longtime pal Karl Lagerfeld — designed her wedding reception dress. Lagerfield’s dress sketch — along with a photo of Allen’s fitting — was revealed on the Chanel News website Thursday. The sheer, empire-waist gown, which had bell sleeves and a flowing skirt, looked perfect for her post-wedding ‘English cricket and afternoon tea’ themed party. We only hope that Lagerfeld creates equally gorgeous looks for the couple’s future baby! Tell us: Was Chanel a good choice for Allen’s wedding reception dress? Caroline Slutsky
