Burberry, London Fashion Week’s golden ticket, wowed the fashion crowd with another extravaganza of a show yesterday. Over1,500 stylish folk piled into the Hyde Park venue, and with so many A-listers in attendance, we can’t pretend we weren’t just a little bit distracted from the clothes hitting the catwalk. After Ellie Goulding, Kanye West, Sienna Miller, Gemma Arterton, Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, Mario Testino and Andy Murray, we started to lose count of how many famous faces we recognised front row, but turn your head the other way and sure enough there were more!
Paul Weller was sandwiched between Poppy Delevingne and Laura Bailey, and Rachel Zoe scanned the runway from behind her signature sunnies. With Anna Wintour and Samantha Cameron in attendance, the outfit stakes were high, but it was Rosie H-W and super-stylist Caroline Seiber whose looks we loved.
Burberry girl Rosie brightened up the front row in a double leather look, rocking a red trench over skinny leather trousers, while Caroline Seiber was all effortless Parisian chic in a tweed trouser suit and the most desirable arm candy of the moment – Chanel’s ‘Boy’ bag. As if that lot wasn’t enough to cement Burberry’s status as London’s hottest show on the schedule, Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey produced the first ever ‘Tweetwalk’ as the Burberry show premiered live on Twitter, and users got to see backstage twit pics of every look before they hit the catwalk! If you fell for the jewel shades, graphic patterns, and cute pom pom caps, and are lucky enough to have a Burberry budget, you can shop the whole collection for one week only. GG
