Burberry’s A-list glitterati

23 September 2009

One of the most hotly anticipated shows of the season took place last night in the capital to rapturous applause from a star-studded front row. Ruched sleeves, sheer pastel coloured draping and signature knotted belts made their way down Burberry’s specially constructed catwalk at the Chelsea School of Art and Design, but it was the A-list arrivals that caused the most fuss from the waiting press and photographers. With the likes of Victoria Beckham, Samantha Cameron, Liv Tyler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Twiggy, Agyness Deyn, Emma Watson, Freida Pinto and even Mary-Kate Olsen (phew!) all making an appearance at London Fashion Week’s closing show, there were a serious number of frocks to look at besides those making up the S/S 2010 collection.

As for the after-party at Burberry’s swanky new HQ on Horseferry Road, we spotted Dev Patel and Freida Pinto wandering round hand in hand, looking completely besotted with each other, while Scott Schuman (aka fashion photographer du jour The Sartorialist) papped away at his own pictures hanging on the wall. US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour sparkled in metallic jacquard satin, Agy and Alexa played a Spice Girls classic while munching on the traditional Yorkshire puddings and scones on offer, and amidst all the chaos creative director Christopher Bailey even managed to lose his dad. 'I left him in the queue for the loo and now I can’t find him!' he told us. Oh, and Gwyneth, Freida and Agy were all sporting just off the runway looks straight from the model's backs. Check out our gallery below of the best-dressed from the night and let us know how you rate the looks...
