Lily Allen celebrated her imminent wedding with a sensible celebration in central London.
And her former best friend Kate Moss was not invited, as the singer maintained her new clean-living lifestyle.
Lily, who once had a reputation for her hard partying ways, spent a rather civilised evening at the Savoy Grill on The Strand with a group of her best girl friends including Jaime Winstone and Miquita Oliver.

In the ultimate snub, supermodel Kate Moss did not receive an invite to Lily”s wedding, which takes place in Gloucestershire next month.
After vowing to curb her wild ways, Lily has drifted apart from Kate.
Earlier this year, in her Channel 4 series From Riches To Rags, Lily said: ‘I still have her number. I just don’t call it very often.’
‘Lily and Kate are more like “frenemies” these days,’ says a friend of the pair. ‘Lily was upset when she heard that Kate was throwing her own hen night on the same weekend as hers. Lily then brought hers forward to May, but the whole thing has left a bitter taste.’
Their respective weddings have divided their mutual friends, including DJ and producer Mark Ronson, who produced Lily”s first album.
He said: ‘I don’t think I’ve been invited to Lily’s. Are the invitations even out yet I will be hanging out at Kate’s.’
Celebrating in a relaxed fashion: Jaime Winstone was part of the group who ventured out into central London for Lily”s hen do

In keeping with tradition the singer wore a veil throughout the night, which must have for quite a sight at the eaterie.
She wore a dark grey dress with leopard print tights and a three-quarter length black cardigan, topping off the outfit with what she referred to as “stripper shoes”.
Lily kept her fans abreast ofthe evening”s festivities via her Twitter page, posting a photo of her footwear with the caption: “I got stripper shoes !!!!!!!!!”
Meanwhileher friend, actress Jaime Winstone showed off her light pink locks during the celebrations – she wore a green top with a large butterfly design on it, white trousers, heels and a bag that matched her hair colour.
Miquita Oliver was the most understated member of the trio with her all black outfit.

‘It will be a truly British party in her garden although no doubt it will get rather wild later.’

The couple have been together since July 2009 but they”ve been friends for years.
Inthe past Lily has described Sam as the “love of her life, saying: “Sam treats me differently. He”s told me he”ll look after me forever. That”s what I”ve always wanted – someone to look after me.

It is unclear where the lesson took place, whether it was at Ramsay”s house or one of his restaurants, but Lily also posed a picture of her next to the chef during the lesson.
