Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn for Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2015

Burberry Spring_Summer 2015 Campaign - on embargo until 14 December 10pm GMT

Burberry unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign starring British icons Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn, which was shot by Mario Testino in London.

Aside from the burst of colours and the joyous mood of the campaign, which celebrates the collection’s bright book cover designs and hand-painted pieces, I’m delighted to see two generations of British supermodels gracing the campaign and looking better than ever.

Naomi Campbell re-joins the Burberry cast for the first time since her Burberry campaign back in 2001, whereas this is the fourth for Jourdan Dunn.
When I saw this campaign, it suddenly explained the recent run of Burberry dresses Naomi has been wearing on the red carpet.

Always marrying fashion and music, George Barnett, the ‘These New Puritans’ drummer who is the current face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance campaign, and George Le Page, the drummer of the band ‘Of Empires’, who opened and closed the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 show, featured in separate images for the campaign.

Customers can shop for the Burberry trench coat collection in stores globally and on Burberry.com from today, with the full Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 collections available globally from 5 January 2015.

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.

Naomi Campbell In Burberry – 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Naomi Campbell In Burberry - 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Naomi Campbell attended the 60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at the London Palladium on Sunday (November 30) in London, England.

The model wore her second Burberry dress in a row, following her look at her Fashion For Relief pop-up launch event.

While we can’t say this gold-embellished gown with a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit is typical of Burberry, we all know this is classic Naomi.

Oozing with sex appeal, dazzling and daring, it suits the catwalker to a T.

The only thing I would change about this look is the rather odd choice of red and pink bracelets.

Naomi Campbell In Burberry Prorsum – ‘Fashion For Relief’ Pop Up Launch

Naomi Campbell In Burberry Prorsum - 'Fashion For Relief' Pop Up Launch

Naomi Campbell attended the ‘Fashion For Relief’ Pop Up Launch held at Westfield London on Thursday (November 27) in London, England.

The supermodel wore a Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015 chiffon ombre dress with a plunging neckline.

I can’t say I’m too keen on her styling with the Alaia whipstitch boots.

Perhaps had she been wearing a jacket or a long-sleeve dress, there wouldn’t have been such a disconnect.

Naomi Campbell In Proenza Schouler – 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards

Naomi Campbell In Proenza Schouler - 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards

Naomi Campbell attended the 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

The model, who has been fiercely loyal to two designers over her long career – Alexander McQueen and Azzedine Alaïa – opted to wear a look from the Proenza Schouler Fall 2014 collection.

The silver flock print adds a graphic punch to this impeccably tailored halter design with a flared skirt which showcases those enviable long legs.

While I would’ve loved a fierce pair of black sandals with this look, Naomi kept it chic, selecting patent-leather Proenza Schouler pumps instead.

As this was the ACE Awards, the look was given a flourish with diamante cuffs.

Charlotte Olympia ‘Handbags For The Leading Lady’ Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia 'Handbags For The Leading Lady' Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia hosted an intimate evening of cocktails followed by dinner to celebrate the launch of the new leather handbag collection ‘Handbags for the Leading Lady’, held at Toto’s Restaurant on Thursday (October 23) in London, England.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel was decked out in a beautiful black lace sari injected with a fiery red trim. Black and red appears to be a favourite colour combo for the supermodel and it works to dazzling effect again on this occasion. Her look was of course styled with a Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Paloma Faith: The British singer was of course wearing Dolce & Gabbana, opting for the brand’s signature animal-print fitted dress, which will never go out of style. Adding touches of red via her Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps, lips and nails, the singer completed her sexy temptress look with a gold Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Alice Eve: The British actress didn’t opt for high glamour like Ms Campbell and Faith, opting instead for a chic smart-casual look consisting of easy black separates, with a Richard Nicoll Fall 2013 cape playing the central role in this look. Alice was lucky enough to get her hands on the Charlotte Olympia ‘Bogart’ bag top-handle bag, which comes with a matching pair of gloves.

No doubt this bag will be heading to Dita von Teese soon in every colourway.

During Paris Fashion Week I got to see this collection up close. The images are below.

You can pre-order the bags from Charlotte Olympia’s website.
