Sis­ters are do­ing it for them­selves

LILY Allen hated the lime­light.

So she’s in­vited a cam­era crew to film her fade into ’’ nor­mal life’’ – ironic, right?

Dra­mat­i­cally ditch­ing her A- list life of stages and star­dom for, well, a re­al­ity se­ries, the Bri­tish potty- mouth is well and truly fed up with the gold­mine she’s made. So she is go­ing to make more. Like a trashed- up ver­sion of the Kar­dashi­ans, Lily and her sis­ter Sarah ( both pic­tured) bare all as they kick off, and pro­mote, their new re­tail out­let.

Their con­cept, a vin­tage cloth­ing bou­tique that gives peo­ple the chance to rent their de­signer dream for a night if they can’t af­ford to buy it out­right, is not bad. Less promis­ing, it turned out, was the Al­lenOwen busi­ness model: Lily splashes in a quar­ter of a mil­lion pounds from her per­sonal bank ac­count while Sarah, a for­mer night­club host­ess, tries to keep track of it. Oh, and the sis­ters have a his­tory of not get­ting on. At all.

But it’s all a touch hyp­o­crit­i­cal as Allen is sure to pocket more riches than ever as we see just an­other pub­lic­ity stunt by the stars.
