Singer Lily Allen can always count on her husband for honest fashion feedback.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Musician Lily Allen's husband often laughs at her for dressing "like a teenager".

When the singer burst onto the music scene with hit Smile in 2006, she also made a mark with her eccentric dress sense. Teaming prom dresses with trainers caused fans all over the world to copy her and mix girly with tomboy.

These days she's calmed her style down a bit, particularly since having daughters Ethel, three, and Marnie, two, with her husband Sam Cooper. But every now and again she'll dip back into her quirky closet.

"I think I dress a little more grown up now - at least that's what I like to tell myself," she laughed to Germany's Jolie magazine. "But when my husband and I go for dinner, it's possible I'll come downstairs and he'll say: 'Are you serious? You still look like a teenager!' My husband will always give me the most honest feedback."

Lily, 30, might not always hit the nail on the head when it comes to fashion, but she was certainly deemed stylish enough for London Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 16 shows. She hit the Love Magazine Miu Miu Party looking cute in a ruffled blouse and tan PVC skirt and Vivienne Westwood's show in a pinstripe suit and bright pink hair.

When it comes to clothes shopping, the star finds it hard not to go overboard.

"I prefer shopping online," she shared. "But I don't browse particular stores, hoping to stumble upon something nice. If I'm looking for something, I'll google it and buy it from every shop that has it available. I always panic if, for example, I've found the perfect jeans - I just keep thinking they could break. That's why I buy multiple pairs! Yes, I'm a hoarder, but luckily we have plenty of room in our house..."
