Lily Allen is a vision in a blue Giorgio Armani gown as she makes a stylish exit from the theatre during her last week of shows in The Pillowman
Lily Allen put on a dazzling display in a sparkling light blue gown as she left the Duke of York Theatre on Friday.
Despite being her last week of performances in the West End smash The Pillowman – the singer has been delighting fans with show-stopping outfits.
The 38-year-old hitmaker was a vision in the stunning garment designed by Giorgio Armani, which featured a tulle layer on the fabric and showed dazzling embellishments.
The gown’s straps were also made of sparkling rhinestones as they flowed behind her during her exit.
The singer-turned-actress looked like a real life princess in the dress, which she teamed with a glamorous clutch embellished with sparkling silver and blue rhinestones.
She tucked her blonde locks behind the ears in a clean look and showed off a pair of eye-catching tasseled drop diamond earrings.
Lily smiled after her performance of The Pillowman as her run in the play draws to a close at the end of this week.
She looked in her highest spirits as she was captured stopping with some fans outside the theatre, before getting on her car.
The English songwriter looked radiant as she showed off a huge smile to her fans and gently waved to everyone outside of the theatre.
The star took to Instagram earlier this week to mark her last week of performances as she wrote: ‘I’ve loved almost every minute of playing Katurian all summer and i’m going to miss getting all dolled up after every show with my @kyledevolle.
‘I can’t believe it’s the last week!’
The Pillowman follows Katurian as she is brutally questioned by authorities after a spate of murders bear similarities to her short stories.
Starring opposite Steve Pemberton, who plays Tupolski and Matthew Tennyson, who stars as Michael, Lily takes the role that was played by David Tennant twenty years ago.
The black comedy ‘examines the role of the artist in society and asks what price do we pay for freedom of expression’, according to a synopsis on the play’s website.
Speaking about The Pillowman’s discussions around censorship, Lily said the play raises a lot of questions about freedom of speech and the internet.
She said: ‘There’s a bit of violence in it. She’s an artist and writer and that’s something I relate to. She definitely pushes boundaries. There was a lot for me to tap into.
Earlier this month Lily revealed she lost her virginity when she was aged 12 and said her father Keith Allen called the police when he found out.
The mum-of-two, who has been married to Stranger Things actor David Harbour, 48, since 2020, was on holiday with her dad, 69, and younger brother Alfie, now 36, when it happened.
She told Alan Carr, 47, on his Life’s A Beach podcast about how her dad thought she had gone missing at the time.
Lily said: ‘I actually went missing. I lost my virginity to a guy called Fernando in Brazil. When I was about 12, no I am not joking. Never spoke to him again.
‘They thought I actually went missing. I went to his hotel room, and I was on holiday with my dad and brother, and obviously didn’t come back to my room’.
Lily added she ‘slept in the next day’, and said: ‘I woke up and there was police all over the hotel.
She said: ‘They were literally combing the beach and had T-shirts (asking), ‘Is this what she was wearing?’ I didn’t have the heart to say, ‘No, I was just losing my virginity’.’
‘It was all a bit traumatic, and I didn’t have sex again then for a while.’
Sex with a child aged 12 or under is called ‘statutory rape’. This means that children this age can never consent and so sex is always a crime. It’s not known how old the man in question was.
