Runway To The Opening Of Burberry’s Perth Store – Melissa George In Burberry Prorsum

Australian actress Melissa George was on hand to help celebrate the opening of the new Burberry Prorsum store in Perth yesterday.

I believe Australia is currently mid-winter, so she was appropriately dress in her Burberry Fall 2009 ensemble which was quite a quintessential British look.

I love her botanical print silk taffeta Burberry Prorsum dress, which is perfect refreshing replacement for a LBD, but I wish I could have found one picture of her without the Burberry coat.

Burberry obviously wanted her to be styled like the runway model – 10 out of 10 for that effort – but is the dress sleeveless, 3/4 length sleeved?

These are questions I want answers to.

Those questions are partially answered by Net-A-Porter who have the v-neck version of the same Burberry Prorsum silk floral taffeta jacquard dress on sale for £2,495/€2,995.

They have also recently added Melissa’s Burberry Prorsum leather and wood sandals.

Stamp out your city style with these platform sandals for £525/€607.

    Obviously she is much shorter than the runway model, so the dress is longer on her causing the witchy poo look.
    It’s such a lovely dress, why would you cover it up with a coat? Particularly a black one? And I have to agree the shoes are not a good match for this outfit, I have never liked tights with sandals.

    This is the second time she has ruined a look with tights.

    The dress that you have pictured is at harvey Nichols and is actually more beautiful in person as photos cannot pick up the rich detail of the fabric-sadly far too expensive for me.
    does look a bit witchy-for a moment I thought Nigella had lost a bit of weight and coloured her hair-it is very much her sort of dressing

      I will have to check it out.

      It’s been a while since I drool over the pieces at Harvey Nicks.

      I prefer it to Harrods

    I agree, the shoes are strange and don’t seem to match the dress.

    3/4 sleeves are pretty popular here in Australia, particularly coming into Spring where it’s starting to warm up just enough for those sleeves to come up a little.

    Actually, yesterday was our second day of Spring, and things are quite warm. Opaque tights are starting to come off across the country. I think she could have gone without.

    I love love the dress. Such a gorgeous autumnal colour palette and print

    Love the dress + coat, but the shoes are… weird. I don’t like I them :/

    she looks good and like an old lady at the same time. how is that possible?

    I keep looking for a broomstick. She looks like a witch. A beautiflly dressed witch but a witch.

      You are so right. All she needs is a pointy hat. And I love Burberry, but who wears a 3/4 length trench? That is the real length of the sleeves, right? They don’t look pushed up.
