Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Front Row

Burberry Womenswear SS15 - Arrivals

A crush of beauties, and a handsome boy, were out in force for the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 fashion presentation on Monday (September 15) during London Fashion Week in London, England. This front row set was, of course, outfitted in all measures of the powerhouse British label for the big show.

Cara Delevingne: The model was front and centre—on the FROW instead of the runway—where she strutted out a sexy two-piece navy suit with multicoloured Burberry Prorsum sneakers and a contrasting plum Burberry Prorsum ‘Bee’ monogrammed bag, both fresh from the Spring 2015 collection. The unexpected mix of the skin-baring, bra-less plunge, worn with strands of necklaces, and the sporty appeal of the trainers delivers on Cara’s rebel edge. I can’t say that a part of me didn’t want to see the suit with a pair of heels, though. The matching red lip and red pocket square were amazing.

Kate Moss: Arm in arm with Cara, Kate belted on a sleek black trench over cropped black skinny pants, punctuating the look with teal-green heels, the Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ bag and cat-eye shades. This dynamic duo appear together in the current My Burberry fragrance campaign—talk about a perfect model match.

Olivia Palermo: The fashion girl wore a signature Olivia look, with the breezy, ombre-effect Resort 2015 lace dress receiving the flourish of a printed scarf that she added for impact. Black ankle-strap sandals wouldn’t have been my first choice for the lighter, bohemian nature of this ensemble.

Araya A. Hargate: Donning a Resort 2015 fringe skirt with a barely blush trench and dove-grey sandals, the Thai actress put some punch in the pastel colour story with her Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ statement bag. We usually see Araya sweeping around in gowns during Cannes; do you like her daytime look?

Naomie Harris: With her bun-style updo and this white Resort 2015 tiered dress, the effect was more prairie girl than necessary. It was also a bit aging. On the bright side, her Bionda Castana heels had plenty of sultry attitude unlike the rest of the outift.

Raya Abirached: The Lebanese TV presenter wore a Fall 2014 dress, featuring an abstract painterly flower pattern, with a contrasting plum-hued Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ bag.

Paloma Faith: Always impressing with her sometimes eccentric, yet inspiring style, Paloma coloured outside the lines just a bit with her Resort 2015 statement trench that echoed the print on Araya’s bag. The accessories are what really made this trench tick, though, with a small Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ teal bag, mint-green pumps and a blue chapeau, not to mention a cascade of blond curls, all working in contrasting harmony.

Anushka Sharma: The Indian actress worked a navy Fall 2014 side-slit dress, patterned scarf and printed booties to her advantage, finishing the ensemble with a green Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ bag. Defying style logic, this somehow all comes together, even with the bold, contrasting booties. A sexy-sophisticated dress, graphic scarf and playful shoes spells fun and fashionable.

Vicki Zhao
: I would have liked this Resort 2015 ombre trench and oversized envelope clutch far better if the coat was not wrinkled. Kate’s green sandals topped off the look.

Ko So-young: The South Korean actress also opted for a scarf-centric Fall 2014 look, hers a medley of graphic prints, from the geometric patterned dress to the exploded filigree-style long scarf. Black drawstring booties and a big clutch finished the look.

Joey Yung: Everything was coming up feathers for the Asian star who wore a Resort 2015 look consisting of a sheer white top, dark stormy blue skirt and silver sandals.

Gala Gordon
: The starlet covered up in a Fall 2014 pastel-yellow chiffon dress paired with an embellished taupe trench and black booties. I perhaps could have done without the black tights, but then again, they softened the blow of the stark, heavy footwear.

Jamie Campbell Bower: The British hot shot was seated front-row in support of his model-girlfriend Matilda Lowther who walked in the show. Of course, he drew plenty of stares himself in a cobalt-blue long coat and contrasting green, letter-print scarf.

Donna Air
: Elevating her navy dress with a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 painterly pastel scarf, the British presenter still had one of the more basic, daresay matronly, looks of the day.

Poppy Delevingne
: Taking a completely different style stance from her sister Cara, Poppy wore the best interpretation of smoky-blue ombre with this effortlessly chic Resort 2015 dress and crossbody nude bag. She fluanted the same Fall 2014 printed booties as Anushka, except hers were arguably more of a seamlessly cool companion to her look, without a hint of try-hard.

    So many people belted their scarves but Olivia Palermo is the one who is pulling it off the best. Also love Poppy’s blue ombre dress

    Araya is best put together here in my oppinion. She classically represented burberry and made me love that bag! Those scarf under the belt look is a bit redundant here.

  3. Amanda September 17, 2014 at 16:24 #

    Olivia and Araya are my favourites here.

    Dear Fashion Critic, do you have any idea … or better gossip 😉 whether Kate and Cara actually like each other or they are just working? Thanks!

  5. Nicky September 16, 2014 at 20:14 #

    Love Olivia, Paloma, and Jamie. Also loving the long scarves.

  6. sophie September 16, 2014 at 14:02 #

    Love Paloma as always.

    Hi Fashion Critic/Ms Katherine,
    The bag Kate Moss was holding at the show is called the “Milverton”. It is of a similar shape to the Bloomsbury. It is a Burberry Prorsum Pre-Collection bag from AW14.

    The blues and greens of Sharma’s scarf and bag as well as in Bower’s look have me swooning. I like Faith’s look from the neck down. Zhao’s coat (imagining it sans wrinkles) and shoes are nice too. Not completely on board with anyone h2t even thought I see some lustwothy individual elements.

    Olivia, Naomi, Paloma and Poppy are my favorites from this event

    Hate the scarfs under the belt. So stupid.

  12. ibiza September 16, 2014 at 10:20 #

    I like kate, only

  13. Jay September 16, 2014 at 08:26 #

    I don’t know who Anushka is but she is stunning! And that is a daring ensemble but she makes it work!

  14. Charlotte September 16, 2014 at 08:22 #

    I realli like Cara look even with the sneakers.
    But why wasn’t she on the runway ?

  15. Alina September 16, 2014 at 07:12 #

    Araya and Olivia are my favourites here.

    Cara’s outfit is a disaster. She looks like one of those corporate girls commuting to the office in sneakers.

    I love Olivia’s outfit from head to toe. Also love Anushka’s and Poppy’s looks. I think the placement of Donna’s scarf is what’s unflattering, unfortunately.

    Paloma is my fave of the bunch – the best executed, most pulled together look imo.
    Hate those printed booties (on Anushka and Poppy), they are an overkill.

      …and the top 2 demonstrate a plain lack of taste, esp. Kate Moss.

  18. Ariel September 16, 2014 at 05:53 #

    Anushka Sharma is my favorite here along with Olivia, Joey, and Poppy. The elements of Anushka’s look were perfect together, even the shoes. Very Model-esque and loving the slits of the dress.

  19. Yeliz September 16, 2014 at 05:46 #

    Araya and Olivia are my faves.

  20. Renata September 16, 2014 at 05:14 #

    Damn it Cara. As I was scrolling down I was like “Good…good..” and then there’s THAT. lol Tragic.

  21. Pedro September 16, 2014 at 05:04 #

    Only Poppy looks REALLY good!
