Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Maggie Gyllenhaal or Olivia Palermo?

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better Maggie Gyllenhaal or Olivia Palermo

Back in May, Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the New Museum Artist Dinner hosted by Burberry wearing a look from the British brand’s Fall 2014 collection.

The loose-fit keyhole hand-printed dress was matched with a rare punchy pink lip, patterned pumps and a gold clutch.

There was nothing rare about Olivia Palermo’s styling when she gave the look a second spin while attending the Chadstone’s Icons Of Style campaign event in Australia last month.

Adding the runway printed scarf, a yellow clutch and Aquazzura sandals, the look was instantly Oliviarized.

I deliberated for a while on this one: was the scarf too much on Olivia? Should I give this to Maggie because she made the look her own?

Eventually I went with the super-stylish Olivia, mostly for her addition of the yellow clutch.

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.

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Celebrities gathered to celebrate red carpet queens Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who returned home to London to showcase their Marchesa Spring 2015 collection on the 10th anniversary of the brand.

Jena Malone: The ‘Hunger Games’ actress was perched in the front row wearing a distinctive Marchesa frock in a rich teal hue, deconstructed to create a gorgeous kilt dress rendered with 3D mohair thistle embroidery. I love her complementary eye makeup, which further emboldened the look along with her gold sparkling Louboutins.

Rita Ora: The singer ditched the red lip in favour of a deep-berry hue for her part-glamorous, part-I’m-not-sure-what’s-up-with-that-hairstyle look. She wore a Marchesa Spring 2011 blush-pink draped chiffon one-shoulder jumpsuit with black tassels on the train. The hair is too harsh for the look, but you have to – on some level – admire her for keeping things varied and interesting. She was asked by a reporter to name her favourite Marchesa red carpet look; having worn Marchesa four times previously to the Elle Style Awards, the BBC Radio One Teen Awards, the 2013 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, and the 2012 EMAs, she said that the red embroidery and taffeta gown from the EMAs was her favourite look. When asked by the journalist where she had worn the look, Rita appeared to go blank and say “Ummm…”, at which point I interjected by saying “the MTV Awards”, to which she looked up at me with some confusion, then turned to the journalist and replied “Yeah, the EMAs”.

Olivia Palermo In Witchery – The Chadstone Runway Fashion Show

Olivia Palermo In Witchery - The Chadstone Runway Fashion Show

Olivia Palermo was spotted at the Chadstone Runway Fashion Show in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday (August 28).

Looking very much like herself, the style-forward socialite magicked a black Witchery trench into a sophisticated dress, while adding a dash of the Midas touch with her Witchery multi-cord golden necklace and matching bracelet.

Never missing a beat when it comes to accessories, she ensure her metallic peep-toe sandals and small clutch continued the gold theme.

Seeing the lookbook and then Olivia, with her wispy updo, I love what’s she’s done with the trench, making it her own with her signature, relaxed-sleek edge.

Olivia Palermo In Burberry Prorsum  - Chadstone 'Icons of Style' Launch

Olivia Palermo is in Melbourne, Australia fulfilling her ambassadorial role for Chadstone’s Icons Of Style campaign, where she is set to share her style secrets during her trip Down Under.

While headed to the launch event she was spotted look oh-so-very chic wearing a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 ensemble which featured a long-sleeved hand-printed floral- and leaf-print ankle-length dress styled the same way as we saw it on the runway, with a graphic-print scarf belted around the waist.

The rest of her styling was her own, with a yellow statement clutch and Aquazzura shoes.

While the shoes are not from her Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo collaboration, you can buy the pieces exclusively from Net-A-Porter.com.

You may remember that Maggie Gyllenhaal wore this same dress sans scarf earlier this year.
