Burberry Serpentine Summer Party

Burberry partnered with The Serpentine Gallery for their annual fundraising event, The Summer Party, which took place in London last night.

Poppy Delevingne: The British model looked very statuesque in her Emilio Pucci Fall 2011 dress with the classic Pucci print. The model would’ve handpicked the dress, as she was front row at the Pucci Fall 2011 presentation back in February.

Alexa Chung: The British TV presenter was the DJ at this event. She opted for a black Carven dress which matched the gloomy weather in London yesterday as it rained most of the day. I guess she wasn’t in a ‘Summer’ party mood as a result. On the plus side Alexa could’ve easily sailed home in her shoes.

Donna Air: The British TV presenter stood out on this red carpet wearing a neon yellow Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2011 one-shoulder dress with a draped detail. Whilst the Smythson clutch is so-so, the green peep-toes are amazing. I love this colour combo. Someone got the ‘Summer’ party memo.

Erin O’Connor: The model wore a beautiful Roberto Cavalli floral print maxi dress.

Amber Anderson: The model opted to wear a mustard Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 print dress with thigh-high boots from the same collection.

Cara Delevingne: The Burberry model opted for a simple white Burberry dress, with her trademark headband and black boots.

Jourdan Dunn: Burberry’s favourite model looked beautiful wearing a dress from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection. I just wish her dress was as silky smooth as her skin.

    Love Amber and Jourdan’s dresses. I love Poppy’s dress, but prefer it on the model.
    Alexa’s little legs are too tiny and thin to be sporting those huge shoes.

    I think my favorite is J. Dunn but if the dress was better ironed… I also like D. Air but I don’t like the accessories. As usual, A. Chung is the worst dressed, she looks like a teacher with shoes from a sexy shop. How unfair is that she receive lots of clothes and she goes to parties to live?

    Alexa kind of looks samey, but I agree the yellow and green combo on Donna is too beautiful. I think that Erin’s dress is Cavailli? She was my fave look – great hair.

      I’ll try to find out if the dress is Cavalli. It has a Cavalli vibe for sure.

      It is Cavalli.

      Thank you x

    I really like Jourdan’s look.

    Erin O’Connor is my favorite here, she looks divine. I also really liked Jourdan Dunn’s look, just the wrinkles were annoying – but what a gorgeous woman! Lol at Alexa sailing home in her shoe boats – you got my morning chuckle goin’ F.C.!

      haaa..but it’s true with those boats on her feet she’ll be home in no time ;D

    I only like Donna Air’s outfit. Everyone else is blah. What is up with wearing Fall looks like boots in the summertime? Isn’t it too hot to wear boots? I wish they would dress for the season.

    Finally…. Alexa did something to her hair. Her dress looks matronly &boring as usual but here you can see she put some effort. Erin looks great love,her overall look.

    I adore Poppy’s Pucci dress. It’s perfect for an upscale summer party. And I don’t know if it’s just the way Donna Air is standing, but it looks like the dress is just rumpled on her, as opposed to structured and interesting on the model. Fabulous color combination, though.

    Not going to comment on Ms. Chung, as it will just turn into another rant about how overrated her “style” is.

    Thanks FC! Jourdan Dunn looks adorable. I’ve been DYING to find out who Tara Palmer Tompkinson’s fab red dress is by, have you any ideas?

    • Fashion Critic June 29, 2011 at 15:44 #

      I don’t know sorry
