London Fashion Week is more creative than any of the other global fashion weeks in Milan, Paris and New York. It’s also way more star-studded as celebrities from the music and acting worlds flock to the FROW to check out the new season trends and dress in their best outfits from this season. If a designer has loaned them a dress for an awards ceremony or party then they have to show their support by attending a show and other lesser-known celebs are trying to get in with the designer for a future loan. It’s a circus, but a glamorous one!
It’s both fun and useful to see what the celebs wore to the shows as these are current creations and we can copy them right now! We have to wait for a while before we can start to imitate what we see on the catwalks, and who has time to do that? There were tons of well-dressed celebs every day, but these are my top 10:
Victoria Beckham at Vogue’s Voice of a Century book launch
Victoria Beckham cosied up to British Vogue editor Alexandra Schulman while looking dressed for business in a blue trouser suit. It’s power dressing at it’s finest! Trouser suits are the new jumpsuits when it comes to party fashion.
Olivia Palermo at Pringle
The New York socialite and former star of The City looked ready for autumn in her seasonal brown knitwear and midi skirt. Olivia is the Queen of dressed down chic as she looks smart without looking as if she’s tried to hard. This outfit suits her perfectly.
Lily James at Burberry
The Cinderella actress took a bit of a risk in this silk blue maxi dress as it looks a bit like nightwear, but she could always sleep in it if she gets tired. It’s refreshing to see a celeb do something a bit different though and she adds bed-hair for the full effect. If you’re going to try a trend then embrace it as you need to do the whole thing or nothing at all.
Cara Delevingne at Burberry
This could also double as a very cool Halloween outfit as Cara looked spookily pretty at the Burberry show. Her black mini dress shows off her lovely legs, but it’s the make-up that adds the drama with a lot of eyeliner. What do you think?
Jenna Coleman at Burberry
Jenna’s starring in one of the most popular TV shows of the moment, Victoria, and she’s glowing. I love the dark red trousers, which are a bit different from what everyone else was wearing and they’d be brilliant for the party season as you could go from work to a party in them without having to get changed. The navy coat goes perfectly.
Donna Air at Burberry
Now it’s autumn, it’s time to get out the leather look leggings again as Donna looked fabulous in hers. When worn with ankle boots and a formal black coat, you’re ready for anything in leather leggings.
Alexa Chung at Burberry
Alexa looked very sparkly and Christmassy in a sequin dress. We saw at the Emmys that sequins are making a comeback and they certainly brightened up Alexa’s look. When you’re wearing sequins, you never have to worry about accessories as they have enough shine on their own.
Poppy Delevingne at Erdem
Cara’s older sister Poppy also channeled Autumn with her LFW outfit and I loved the brown suede skirt, which would look gorgeous with boots all season long. Stripes are always cool and I like how Poppy’s gone for grey and red instead of the traditional blue and white. It’s very chic!
Daisy Lowe at Christopher Kane
The new star of Strictly Come Dancing looked elegant and sophisticated in a black pleated midi skirt, which she wore with a white t-shirt. The skirt is very formal, but the t-shirt makes it suitable for everyday wear and Daisy looks very cool in this outfit. Daisy makes her own fashion rules and pulls it off as she has attitude.
Jourdan Dunn at LOVE Magazine x Marc Jacobs’ party
Wow, talk about colour! It’s nice to see that colour, along with sequins, is making a comeback. Jourdan’s multi-colour mini dress shows off her long legs and makes her feel ready to party. You can see by the pout on her face that she’s happy with what she’s wearing and that it gives her confidence. Colourful outfits cheer everyone up.
I can’t believe fashion week is over! Has it given you any inspiration?
