London Fashion Week: Day 4- BURBERRY!!

Cocaine Princess here.

One of the most highly anticipated show (and one of my faves) during London Fashion Week is Christopher Bailey for Burberry Prorsum. This grand show took place in a giant transparent tent in Kensington Gardens. The invite:



Guests for Burberry A/W 2013~14 included Victoria Pendleton, Tinie Tempeh, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rita Ora, Anna Wintour, Olivia Palermo Salma Hayek and Kate Beckinsale with her daughter.

The stellar FROW at Burberry Prorsum today


The song Hold Me was sung live by Tom Odell accompanied by a piano, cello and choir. Christopher Bailey chose fabrics with vinyl, patent leather and metal.
The theme: Trench Kisses. How cute!  A collection of classics and Christine Keeler - setting a mischievous tone for the hint of sexiness - and wickedness - to come.

The outfit that stole the show: Cara Delevingne in a vinyl skirt with heart-print knickers beneath that managed to be at once both prim and kinky.

Subverting tradition: Cara Delevingne walked second in an outfit that embodied the very spirit of the show - vinyl skirt with heart-print knickers beneath that managed to be at once both prim and kinky

The classic Burberry trench with a twist: Classic with a touch of the Christine Keelers in this mink Caban coat:
