Lily Allen says her curvy figure makes it impossible for her to follow trends.
The 'Not Fair' singer - whose weight has fluctuated over the years - has learnt how to dress for her body shape and now knows there are some looks which she will never be able to pull off.
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."
Lily, 25, also says she has discovered that having good hair and make-up is sometimes more important than wearing an expensive dress.
She told Britain's ELLE magazine: "I've found that my understated red carpet looks get the best reaction. Less is more. Spend more money on make-up and getting your hair don, but don't go too styled. Wear something that you feel comfortable in - maybe a floaty dress in a beautiful fabric - and can dance easily in."
