Lily Donaldson In Lanvin – Harrods Summer Sale Launch

The Harrods sale launched in spectacular style on Saturday with Lily Donaldson gracing the red carpet to greet thousands of eager shoppers before declaring the Knightsbridge store open at 9am.

Lily dazzled onlookers as she arrived on a horse-drawn carriage wearing a stunning dress by Lanvin Spring 2012 dress.

Her ivory-and-black dress featured one sleeve with a padded shoulder with the opposite side accented with a crystallized detail.

Even with all that bling, she still added subtle jewels by Boodles. Black pumps and a simple ponytail completed her look.

Speaking at the event, Lily said: “It’s a great honour to be opening the Harrods Sale. It was such a fun experience which I enjoyed every minute of.”

While shoppers embarked on their summer sale hunt, Lily posed for pictures in a specially created ‘girl’s dream’ shopping-scene in-store. The model was flanked by Harrods’ iconic Greenmen who helped out by carrying her sale purchases.

You may remember that Jessica Alba wore this same dress to the Lanvin Fall 2012 presentation.

‘Burberry Day’

Yesterday was deemed Burberry Day, and many stars came out to celebrate.

Alexa Chung and Hilary Rhoda provided the nights entertainment, by both showing up in the same baby blue lace dress, which they both wore with a belt.

Ouch. That’s gotta be embarrassing, especially for Chung, who’s trying to make a name for herself in the US.

Hilary wore Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals with her dress, whilst Alexa wore a blazer from the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 collection, to try to cover her shame, with platform boots from the Burberry Fall 2009 collection.

Blake Lively wore a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2009 boyfriend jacket, which reached the hem of her mini skirt.

You’ll be happy to see that the twins aren’t on full display on this occasion.

This is a cute, non-fussy laid back look for Blake.  I really like it.

When you are the House model, you can have a dress made especially for you, and that’s exactly what happen for Lily Donaldson.

The presented white chiffon Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 knee-length dress, was considerably shorten for Lily, to show off her long legs, and suit her sassy style.

Like Alexa, she wore the Burberry Fall 2009 black suede booties.

Leigh Lezark looked stunning teaming a pleated eggplant Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 dress, with a grey clutch, black pointy heels, and a smouldering stare.

Claire Danes oozed glamorous chic, wearing a draped dove grey Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 bubble hem dress, accented with a wide black belt, and T-bar Burberry sandals.

The original runway dress was worn on the red carpet by Agyness Deyn, and made several appearances in fashion magazines across the world, after it’s Spring 2009 presentation, but it’s now been archived.

Molly Sims wore a Burberry Prorsum chocolate brown dress, with the same feather embellishments, which accentuated her blonde hair and tanned skin.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld flouted the unwritten rule by wearing an Alexander Wang white jersey dress, we have seen 3 times before.

To say I’m over this dress is putting it mildly, and I don’t need to tell you what I think about the heels.

Even though Rose McGowan looked quite out of place at this event, she does pull off her oversized cream suit with great style. Giving us 80s retro chic.

Alexis Colby would be proud.
