Lily Allen Makes Red Carpet Return At The Ivor Novello Awards

The Huffington Post UK  |  Posted: Updated: 17/05/2012 16:31

We've missed having Lily Allen around in celebville, looking cute and being all cheeky, so we're happy bunnies now she's back.

New mum Lily made her red carpet return as she attended the prestigious Ivor Novello awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, earlier today.

The singer - who welcomed her daughter Ethel with husband Sam Cooper into the world last November - kept her post-baby figure under wraps in a loose fitting smock dress and blazer, with sunglasses adding that I-may-be-a-mum-but-I'm-still-cool touch.

Lily made her return to the party scene earlier this month as she celebrated her 27th birthday, with her old partner in crime, Miquita Oliver, back by her side.

We've yet to meet Lily's baby though and we're not fancying our chances anytime soon, as her and Sam are notoriously private.

They even remained tight-lipped about their tot's name following the birth, and it wasn't until her step-mum, Alison Owen accidentally let it slip in January, that we actually found out.
