Lily Allen gives up heels

by Dami Olonisakin

Lily Allen has had to give up high heels because she’s pregnant.

The ‘Smile’ singer – who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Sam Cooper – normally loves wearing stilettos but has had to adapt what she wears on her feet as they’re no longer practical.

She said: “Heels are the only area I’ve stopped splurging on. I rarely go near a shoe if it’s lower than 4in, but stilettos just look so unappealing to me right now, which is very sad.”

Lily – who has opened her own vintage clothing store, Lucy in Disguise – has previously said she loves high heels because they flatter her figure as she’s quite short.

She said: “Empire-line dresses, jeans with a heel and a top that covers your bum are good. And anything cut with an A-line. I’m wary of following trends that don’t work for me – I don’t have a model’s body, so I wear what I can work with. You won’t catch me dead in the new kitten heels, for example – I’m 5ft 2in, if I’m going to wear heels, they’re going to be five-inch ones.”
