Lily Allen Spends £100,000 on Luxury Handbags and Clothes

Posted on: Feb 13

Most of us are feeling the pinch of the financial crisis and tightening our belts. But not British popette Lily Allen. She reportedly spent a whopping £100,000, or $143,000 US, on designer clothes and accessories last year.

Those luxury labels just don't come cheap. In a recent interview with The New York Times Lily showed off her wardrobe, which has an entire section devoted to Chanel.

"It's awesome, isn't it?" she cooed. And it probably is. Her Chanel shrine is flanked by some choice pieces by Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, and other designers guaranteed to make us mere mortals drool!

Plenty have criticized Lily for her indulgent habit, but let's be fair. Sure, that money would probably have been better spent helping poverty-stricken villages and AIDS orphans. But that sort of cash injection has got to help the economy! Maybe Lily's just doing her part to prop up the fashion industry!

The "Smile" singer has taken the condemnation in her stride, commenting "It's a lot of money. People say how terrible I look all the time, but imagine if I didn't spend £100,000 on clothes."
