Allen Refuses To Design For New Mums
Pregnant singer LILY ALLEN refuses to add a maternity range to her clothing line - because she fears it will encourage young girls to fall pregnant. The Smile hitmaker announced she is expecting her first child with Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons, 37, last week (19Dec07). But the 22-year-old - who designs for British high street store New Look - doesn't want to send out the wrong message to her younger fans, so has ruled out creating a fashion line for mums-to-be. She says, "I've had a lot of offers from people to do my own maternity range but I don't think it is the right message to send to young Britain. I'm not the best example. I'm pregnant and a bit young, aren't I? "My demographic is generally young girls. I don't think a maternity line is particularly suitable."
