Last night in New York City, Sienna Miller supported her beau Tom Sturridge at the opening night of the new play ‘Orphans’ on Broadway, in which Tom stars alongside Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster.
It was a double dose of Cool Britannia, as the couple both wore Burberry.
Sienna Miller: The actress wore a classic Burberry trench coat for her red carpet look, which she styled with a Burberry Prorsum ‘The Little Crush’ clutch. The ponyskin-and-leather drawstring clutch featuring hearts and a gold padlock, which was presented during the Fall 2013 collection, adds a cheeky touch to her classic look. Black leather booties, a hot-red lip colour and perfectly teased tresses rounded out her look.
Tom Sturridge: This is the first time I have ever seen Tom in a suit, and a perfectly fitted suit it is too. His dark-grey Burberry Tailoring suit was styled with a white dress shirt and burgundy textured tie. Just to prove he hasn’t gone soft, he styled his look with a pork-pie hat and scuffed shoes.
Michelle Williams added a burst of colour to the red carpet on Thursday evening at the London premiere of ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ held at The Empire Cinema.
The actress wore a gown from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 collection.
Michelle was quite the contrast from her co-stars – Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz – who wore nude and black–in this bright blue-and-green peacock feather embroidered bustier dress. The colour also popped against the event’s bright yellow carpet.
While this dress came down the runway with a striking purple capelet, by forgoing that accent and adding a belt, Michelle shows off the dress’s peek-a-boo, sweetheart neckline and adds some curve to her petite figure.
Her chunky heeled, peep-toe Jimmy Choo ‘Kapla’ sandals are the perfect shoe for this look (even better than what came down the runway) , and Michelle continues to impress me with how gracefully her pixie cut is growing out. By giving her hair a deep side part, she is perfectly on trend, and gives some new appeal to her locks as they grow out.
Ultimately, I think Michelle is flawless and wins the fictitious red carpet stand-off between her co-stars.
Rosie headed back to Los Angeles, arriving yesterday afternoon, while Kate, staying on in London, was spotted headed to dinner at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair with David Walliams.
Both ladies carried fresh-off-the-runway Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 bags that we had seen in the hands of Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Edie Campbell, getting the jump on everyone else.
The bag features structured panels contrasted with a soft inner pouch to create a ladylike shape which was presented in a variety of materials including Prorsum leather and calfskin. The leather drawcord fastening references classic outerwear closures and is a big feature through out all bags in the collection.
Wearing a laidback look with teal Isabel Marant fringed boots and a Saint Laurent ‘Babycat’ scarf, Rosie’s bag of choice featured heart-print calfskin.
If I had the choice between the two I think I would select Rosie’s as I love the sweet heart-print.
Burberry’s Fall 2013 presentation marked the debut of Runway Made to Order, a service that offers custom-made outerwear and bags from the collection featuring personalised engraved nameplates. Runway coats and bags are now available for two weeks on Burberry.com, for delivery in just nine weeks.

Christopher Bailey presented his Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 collection to a packed house at Kensington Gardens in London yesterday. As always, it was the hottest ticket for London Fashion Week.
Inspired by Burberry classics and Christine Keeler, the theme ‘Trench Kisses’ quickly made sense as models took to the runway wearing updated trench coats, some with sheer latex, and sweetheart prints.
It wasn’t all sweetness and light; there was an edgier side to the ‘Trench Kisses’ collection, with models wearing latex skirts with revealing panties, military-style coats, fringed leather skirts accented with grommets – which featured several times in this collection – python trench coats and plenty of animal-print pieces, which I’m sure we will see on the likes of Kate Moss.
After a selection of striped pieces, the collection moved on to eveningwear, something that Burberry doesn’t always present on the runway. We usually only get a glimpse of the brand’s eveningwear at major events, like the Met Gala or the BAFTAs.
Speaking of the BAFTAs, a white, shorter version of Anne Hathaway’s gown featured in this collection, alongside two black halter dresses with gold accents at the neckline. I hope to see full-length versions of both these dresses on the red carpet soon.
Key accessories included the ‘Crush’ bag, Kitten wedges, animal print sunglasses and gold band belts.
The show marked Burberry’s debut of Runway Made to Order, a service that offers custom-made outerwear and bags from the collection featuring personalised engraved nameplates. Runway coats and bags are now available for two weeks on Burberry.com, for delivery in just nine weeks.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Freida Pinto, Michelle Dockery, Emma Watson, Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, Kate Bosworth, Clemence Poesy, Laura Bailey, Poppy Delevigne, Keira Knightley, Chloe Moretz, Kate Beckinsale, Kirsten Dunst, Melanie Laurent and Olivia Wilde
As is customary, quite the coterie of starlets stylishly resided on Burberry Prorsum’s front row to see just what Christopher Bailey had in store for Fall 2013; a collection he titled “Trench Kisses, A Collection of Classics and Christine Keeler.” While it was hard to compete with the designer’s gorgeous runway heroines, many of these cool-girl guests rocked their Burberry best at London’s Kensington Gardens on Monday afternoon and gave the models a good run.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The British model and actress broke out a sleek coral-red pantsuit for her front-row seat at the show. Was it mannish? Yes. But with the slim fit and the impeccable tailoring, no to mention Rosie’s voluminous waves, she looked like she just stepped off the runway herself.
Freida Pinto: Opting for a cooler palette of jewel tones, the actress wore a dark sapphire corset and emerald green trouser from Burberry Prorsum’s colour-saturated Spring 2013 collection. Instead of the cropped biker jacket originally featured on the catwalk, Freida added a black sash detail to the peplum waist of the top. Without any accessories on this look, I would have at least liked to see the added zest of the runway’s golden yellow shoe. But she played off the black with her peep-toe wedge.
Rita Ora: We can always count on this British songstress to pump up the volume with her chameleon-like style. Here, she also went for a menswear-inspired statement with a navy suit that kept an edge with its ’80s slouch and rolled-up sleeves, paired back to stacks of colourful bangles, a “foxy” chain necklace and a T-shirt that playfully illustrated Rita’s new British BFF and model of the moment, “Queen” Cara Delevingne. The white version of those peep-toe wedges also made an appearance, as did a modernized bouffant-style ‘do.
