Burberry Scores One Cool Crowd At London Fashion Week AW11

Bagging a front row seat at Burberry is like finding the Stella McCartney sling-backs you’ve been lusting over all season in the sale, with only one pair left and they’re in your size. In other words, incredibly rare and oh-so fabulous. So it goes without saying that the crème de la crème of the fashion crop descended upon Kensington Gardens yesterday to attend the Burberry autumn/winter 2011 catwalk show. We’ve got to admit we were just as excited about what the A-list were going to wear catwalk-side than the actual collection and Lily Donaldson, Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth and Daisy Lowe didn’t disappoint, kitted out in signature Burberry trenches and those studded biker jackets. But probably most exciting of all was the appearance of Anna Wintour sans sunnies and with a definite smile on her face. Looks like Christopher Bailey scores again! SR
