Burberry Prorsum Show: LIVE Arrivals and First Look at the Catwalk!

20 February 2012

Whilst we're eagerly awaiting the start of the Burberry AW12 livestream from the comfort of our desks, web editor Jessica Vince is out and about in Hyde Park waiting for the celebrity arrivals. Not a famous face in sight just yet...

Bip Ling has just arrived in some fierce studded heels and patterned trews we saw earlier at Pringle...

The gorgeous Clemence Posey has now arrived who revealed that she thinks London Fashion Week to be the most relaxed of them all. We couldn't agree more!

Miss Burberry Body herself, Rosie Huntington Whiteley has turned up looking stylish in burgundy trousers and warm tweed-y jacket

The livestream has just started! We CANNOT WAIT!

Members of The Feeling arrive with a blooming lovely Sophie Ellis Bextor

Burberry boy of the moment, Eddie Redmayne is all smiles as he walks into the venue

Will Young has now arrived, and is chatting to press next to Rosie Huntington Whiteley

And on her other side, talking to press, is Anna Wintour

Kate Bosworth is now in the building and wearing what we now know to be a Burberry AW12 owl jumper

Will I Am arrives in a classic trench (fitting!) and yellow rimmed glasses

Laura Bailey attends the show looking very ladylike in a full-skirted frock

Arriving late is Alexa Chung who makes a bee-line straight for her seat indoors


Annnd the show's started! Jourdan Dunn opens wearing a a slightly tulip-skirted coat with oversized pockets, bow belt and flat cap (all turning out to be recurring themes throughout)

Checked coat and fox head buckle belt - English countryside at its most chic!

We adore these barrell bags just as much as the model does!



The perfect fur collared jacket for wearing on those cold and dark AW12 nights!


At the beginning we saw rather muted, earthy colours along with tweed jackets and coats and striped skirts

The bow motif continues, this time as shoulder detailing on this dress


Love the flash of emerald green with this floral, mustard coloured peplum skirt! If Burberry's collection is anything to go by, peplums will be back again for next season..


Cara Delevigne closes the show in this to-die-for deep purple full-skirted velvet coat - start saving your pennies now!

Once the last model has left the runway, there's something that makes the f-row look up towards the roof. Is that rain??

Yep! But where did it come from? There's no rain outside Grazia Towers...

And then the models come out again for the finale, led by Cara Delevigne and all carrying stripey umbrellas to shield them from the silver confetti falling down

The rain seems to have put a smile on the faces of the f-row

And then Christopher Bailey takes a bow and then it's all over!
