Suki Waterhouse's Fashion Evolution
Suki Waterhouse got her big break as the face of British high street stalwart Marks and Spencers’s underwear collection in 2011, which was shot by famed photographer Rankin. However, the blonde model looks set to follow fellow catwalk stars Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Cara Delevingne (who happens to be her bessie) into the international spotlight thanks to her unique personal style and *ahem* personal relationship with a certain Hollywood hunk called Bradley Cooper.
Yes not only does this model, actress and singer boast a stellar wardrobe, but she’s got one of the world’s most eligible bachelors on her arm to boot – along with a Burberry handbag of course. Suki is a front row regular at Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Prorsum presentations and has been touted as a potential future face of the brand as her ‘London girl’ aesthetic fits in nicely alongside the likes of Cara, Edie Campbell, Lily Donaldson et al. She has attended the last two Burberry shows solo, but in September of last year walked the red carpet with her ex-boyfriend, musician Miles Kane. Apparently prior to Bradley Suki had a thing for rockers (don’t we all), as she was linked to both Miles and the Kooks front man Luke Pritchard.
Romance aside, Suki’s main attraction is her signature 60s style, Mod beauty look and willingness to try something different whether that’s a signature coat, vertiginous heels or a printed trouser suit. Grazia featured her in our Big Fashion Issue earlier this year where she revealed a passion for vintage: 'My style naturally falls into the '60s, so the new but retro collections are my ultimate favourites.' Her magpie skills are such that on shopping trips she says: ‘I like to dedicate a day to have an intense sort through; I’m like an animal hunting.’
Suki's latest fashion extravaganza was Glastonbury last month, where she delivered a lesson in festival style. Ditching the heels, she wore pieces by Kate Spade, Hudson, Wildfox and House of Holland, making her an equal match for fellow Glasto-goers Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof in the style stakes.
