LFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

LFW 1

Here is my red carpet wish list from the Spring 2014 shows presented during London Fashion Week.

Antonio Berardi: Of all the designers, Antonio’s was the hardest to select just one from, as there are so many looks I am dying to see on the red carpet. In the end I selected Look 4 for Rose Byrne. The actress, who loves blush tones, would look remarkable in this look. It’s soft and pretty, with delicate embellishments, yet the mullet hem gives the look an edgier twist than we are used to seeing from the Aussie star.

Barbara Casasola: The Brazilian-born designer has been steadily growing her celebrity fan base with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Sonam Kapoor as fans, so I hope to see more of her pieces on the red carpet. Marion Cotillard would look amazing wearing this dual-colour black-and-lilac streamline frock. It would be perfect for a New York or London screening.

Front Row @ Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Front Row

Burberry Prorsum’s pretty, English rose-themed Spring 2014 collection debuted today at Kensington Gardens during London Fashion Week. There were plenty of PYTs, and even a particular One Direction boy, who crowded the front row for the cheerful runway action.

Sienna Miller: Fully embracing the fall season, the Burberry-clad actress, who appears in the label’s Fall 2013 campaign, showed us how the midriff trend might transition to colder temps.  Her fuzzy, forest-green cropped jacket was matched to the slimmer silhouette of a classic pencil skirt in a similar tonal shade. Embellished sandals and a baby-blue clutch didn’t fit in as seamlessly as I would have liked.

Naomie Harris: Sleek and effortless, the actress wore a buttery-yellow sheath dress from the Burberry Resort 2014 collection. Accessorizing with black ankle-strap sandals and a mini-clutch, along with straight locks, she proved that simple is sometimes best.

Paloma Faith: The British singer-songwriter paid homage to the Burberry label with her Fall 2013 goldenrod trench and rubberized skirt, which she paired with a mahogany pumps and studded bag. Of course, all eyes were also on her flame-red curls, which always add an exclamation point to each of her outings.

Front Row @ Mulberry Spring 2014

Front Row @ Mulberry Spring 2014

Mulberry-clad, front-row mavens all gathered on Sunday to see the label’s Spring 2014 collection at Claridges Hotel during London Fashion Week in England.

Alexa Chung: The DJ donned a conservative Mulberry dropped-waist, white button-down dress, accessorized with a black sweater of her shoulders, along with ‘Lizzie’ black wedges and an olive ‘Alexa’ bag, all from the Spring 2014 collection.

Brit Marling: A sporty-chic Brit posed in a black biker jacket, dotty blouse and the ‘Lizzie’ pencil skirt, matched with the same ‘Lizzie’ black shoes worn by Alexa, which all hailed from Spring 2014. The polished white ‘Suffolk’ handbag, also from Spring 2014, as well as long blonde waves, finished the look with an air of sophistication.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress was also decked in the Spring 2014 collection, with her black ‘Betsey’ coat, the ‘School’ ballet-pink printed shirt and ‘Lizzie’ ballet-pink skirt, paired with pumps and the oversized ‘Clemmie’ clutch in a matching blush-nude shade. Nearly nude makeup and a simple centre-parted bob completed the look.
