Best Dressed Of The Week – Emma Watson In Burberry Prorsum & January Jones In Atelier Versace

Emma Watson was your Best Dressed this week as you fell in love with her custom-made Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 dress, which she wore when she took her front row seat at Burberry’s Prorsum Spring 2010 show during London Fashion Week.

I’m still in love with January Jones who wore an Atelier Versace Spring 2010 strapless gown to the Emmy Awards last Sunday. The gown was both futuristic and elegant.

The whole Atelier Versace collection is now available to view on Versace’s new and improved website – Versace.com.

Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2010 Front Row

Brown Freshman Emma Watson traveled from Rhode Island to London for the Burberry Spring 2010 presentation during London Fashion Week.

Burberry’s Fall 2009 campaign girl traded her air miles for a custom-made Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 golden dress.

Emma’s gold foil short sleeve front zip dress was paired with a black braided belt and black Burberry platforms.

Her hair was styled in a loose updo to complete her front row superstar look.

Despite only appearing in one movie Freida Pinto sealed her superstar status by not only being front row at the Burberry Spring 2010 presentation last night, but she also wore a dress from the presentation before it had hit the runway.

I adore this soft yellow twisted dress on her, as she is truly glowing.

She opted for a purple studded Burberry clutch and Rupert Sanderson Aspasia fuchsia leopard patent heels to complete her look.

Very interesting coloured accessories for her yellow dress.

Gwyneth Paltrow also opted for a twisted piece from the Spring 2010 collection.

Unfortunately her skirt/t-shirt/chunky boots combo doesn’t quite work for me.

Alexa Chung wore a classic Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 trench coat over her LBD.

Ankle boots as standard.

With her trademark Chanel sunglasses in check, Anna Wintour arrived at the presentation wearing a gold and bronzed Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 dress, with bronze strappy kitten heel sandals.

How very chic Ms. Wintour.

Proving that she truly is the best ambassador for her brand, Victoria Beckham arrived in a black dress from her own Spring 2010 collection.

I’m grateful for this new silhouette, but I must ask how many Trib Two’s does Victoria own?

Lee Na Young wore the same Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 gold floral dress/black coat combo Melissa George wore recently, which is leading me to believe that maybe if you buy the dress, you get the coat free.

Mary-Kate Olsen I believe traveled to London especially for this presentation.

The actress wore a black tulle dress under a black coat with black beetle bug brooch decorating her coat.

She accessorized with black suede Burberry wedge heels, dark sunglasses and an orange beaded bag.

Carine Roitfeld opted for an all black look which included a peaked shouldered blazer and a YSL vintage dress by Tom Ford.

As did Liv Tyler, who toughen up her look with Burberry Prorsum cut-out leather sandals.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010


Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 presentation closed London Fashion Week last night as millions of people around the world watched the live stream.

The presentation was titled “Twisted Classics” which was apt considering nearly all of the pieces featured a twisted or ruched element.

Twisted trench coats, twisted shoulders, twisted dresses, braided bodice dresses, twisted skirts, twisted shirts and even the shoes had a twisted detail.

Apart from the twisted element, every single piece in this collection was paired with a belt.

The house is known for it’s trench coats and they were shorter, sassier, sexier and more colourful than ever before.

They were fitted, twisted, ruched and the shoulders were bolder. A few were also made from duchess silk satin which were just so beautiful.

The colour palette included fruity pastel pinks, blues, lavender and peppermint, plus nude and soft grey.

I had a lot of favourites, but Chanel Iman’s blue dress was so gorgeous against her skin.

The accessories in this collection were equally lust worthy. I remember a time when the Burberry check was considered chavy, but Christopher Bailey has made it cool again.

I loved this collection. It’s a very casual collection which can be dressed up or dressed down if desired. I expect to see many hot young things wearing this collection on the red carpet.

Front row to follow.

Your Front Row Seat To Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2010 Presentation

Unfortunately you won’t be actually in the front row with Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham, but you will be in front of your computer viewing the live stream.

The show starts at in 30 mins – 6.30pm BST.

After the show there will be a party at which Alexa Chung and Agyness Deyn will be spinning the decks.

Can’t wait to see the pictures tomorrow.

Runway To The Opening Of Burberry’s Perth Store – Melissa George In Burberry Prorsum

Australian actress Melissa George was on hand to help celebrate the opening of the new Burberry Prorsum store in Perth yesterday.

I believe Australia is currently mid-winter, so she was appropriately dress in her Burberry Fall 2009 ensemble which was quite a quintessential British look.

I love her botanical print silk taffeta Burberry Prorsum dress, which is perfect refreshing replacement for a LBD, but I wish I could have found one picture of her without the Burberry coat.

Burberry obviously wanted her to be styled like the runway model – 10 out of 10 for that effort – but is the dress sleeveless, 3/4 length sleeved?

These are questions I want answers to.

Those questions are partially answered by Net-A-Porter who have the v-neck version of the same Burberry Prorsum silk floral taffeta jacquard dress on sale for £2,495/€2,995.

They have also recently added Melissa’s Burberry Prorsum leather and wood sandals.

Stamp out your city style with these platform sandals for £525/€607.

Emma Watson For Burberry Fall 2009

Emma Watson has been unveiled as the new face of Burberry, with a stunning set of pictures shot by Mario Testino.

The images capture Watson looking innocent and charming, in a variety of classic trench coats from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the dark and moody picture above, plus the picture of Emma carrying the Burberry Woolf bag.  The new it bag, is a suede tote with embroidered overlay, which is set to retail at £1,095.

There have been many rumours linking Emma to Chanel for a few years, but this is the first major advertising campaign for the 19 year old.

I like the ads, but Testino’s shots for the fashion house, are slightly predictable.
