None were eager to miss the Burberry Fall 2018 show on Saturday (February 17) as part of London Fashion Week, judging by a front row that was overflowing with fans of the iconic British label.
Sienna Miller: If you thought you knew Burberry plaid, you might be challenged to think again given the actress’s fearless combo of the checquered patterns that maintained her free-spirited, boho style.
Keira Knightley: I will have to admit to not recognizing Keira at first. This play on proportions, between the boxy jacket and the frilly skirt, left a lot to be desired when it came to its figure-flattering qualities.
Zendaya Coleman: Even when covered up in an oversized check coat, somehow Z still commands this look—and leaves me wanting to see the brashly bold, graphic ensemble beneath it all the more.
Naomi Watts: The actress stuck to a more conservative approach in her long trench coat, styled with a blouse and racing-stripe trousers.
Tom Holland: I love Tom’s style-forward fusion of the classic trench with casually directional, athleisure joggers and those can’t-miss-them boots.
Alexa Chung: The statement piece here was the patent trench, to which I will hold nothing against its striking, fire-engine-red hue.
Jourdan Dunn: The model might as well have just walked right off the runway, as she slayed this look that was bold and in-your-face—for all the right reasons. I love the sweeping drama of the coat in partnership with her neck-to-toe word play.
Lily James: The mood was far more romantic when it came to Lily’s sheer overlay frock.
Michelle Dockery: Classic plaid suiting got a bit of a twist here, what with the boxy jacket and the jumbo cuffs on the pants.
Paris Jackson: With her rainbow stripes and patent pants, she was clearly channeling her inner hippie rock star.
Paloma Faith: If you thought Sienna’s plaids were mixed and matched, that would be nothing compared to Paloma’s mish-mosh that went a step too far into
Anya-Taylor Joy: Playfully demure, this frock was saved from too-safe territory by virtue of its colour-block stripes.
Kate Moss: The supermodel went for a luxe, elegant spin with this plush play on the colour black.
Naomi Campbell: But, this supermodel couldn’t be further away from a monochromatic mood in her mosaic design. I love this colour palette on her, even if the proportions of it all were a bit odd.
Adwoa Aboah: Orange was definitely the new black for Adwoa here, but both the fit and style of those sweats made for a slouchy—read, messy—experience that not even tailored Burberry plaid could save.
