We love nothing more than a gigantic fashion week surprise, and Burberry just managed to knock us off our feet with one. As we were gearing up to see Cara take her usual place at the front of Christopher Bailey’s model army, we almost did a double take when we saw her sitting next to none other than Kate Moss on the front row!
Yep, just down from Poppy D, Jamie Campbell Bower and Paloma Faith sat the new faces of the My Burberry fragrance, giggling together, holding hands and even taking selfies with Mario Testino! Cara was poised to watch model BFFs Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn showcase Burberry’s SS15 collection, which was a riot of colour splashed over classic trenches, romantic tulle skirts and- wait for it- trainers! Continuing fashion’s AW14 sneaker obsession, Burberry’s block colour beauties will surely be the new Chanel kicks of Spring/Summer- Cara was already rocking hers, natch.
In fact, we predict that the British brand’s accessories will be the style set’s new ‘it’ buys, with the ‘Bee’ bag (Cara was carrying her own monogrammed version) and flat sandals set for cult status. And what’s the one styling trick we can take straight from the catwalk? Oversized tulle bows tied at the waist. Oh, and don’t even think of wearing a jacket unless it’s cropped!
Excuse us while we fangirl over Cara and Kate’s new friendship. Does it get much better than this?
