Brave Lily steps back into the limelight to support her wedding dress designer

She might not have been walking the runway, but all eyes were on Lily Allen.

The Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week marked the singer's first public outing since her the loss of her unborn child in November of last year.

But it seems the public appearance was tiring for Lily, who later revealed on Twitter: "Chanel show in Paris was lovely. on my way home now, think i might hide for a while."

The volcanic setting is in stark contrast to his previous runway show, where models traced circles around a 265-ton glacier which had been shipped in from Sweden.
