London's queen of pop opens up to The Spectator's editor Matthew d' Ancona about everything from fame, 'I find it odd when people say,"Can I have your autograph?"', to her boyfriend, painter and decorator Sam Cooper, and of course her look, 'I do all my own hair and make-up. [But] I never plan what I wear, not until about five minutes before I go on.'
She also talks candidly to ELLE TV about her weight, her style icons and even pal Kate Moss.
To hear what she has to say take a peek at the cover shoot now, for which a host of key British designers including Luella, Richard Nicoll and Christopher Bailey at Burberry created one-off pieces for Lily and see how ELLE's Marissa Bourke persuaded Ms Allen to go blonde.
