London Fashion Week is in full swing and a gaggle of celebs made their way to the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground this week for the Burberry Spring 2010 fashion show. While there were many a pretty celeb in the hiz, it was Burberry spokesmodel Emma Watson who stole the show from the front row in the audience:
When they signed her up for their ad campaigns, Burberry might have wondered if it was a risk too far. But as Harry Potter star Emma Watson arrived at London Fashion Week, she proved she is worth her weight in gold. Wearing a stunning metallic Burberry minidress and towering black heels, the 19-year-old actress turned heads as she arrived at the Burberry show. She even managed to upstage the perennially glamorous Victoria Beckham, who arrived in an understated black knee-length dress. Emma wore dark eye make-up and styled her hair in a loose up-do, proving she was perfectly at ease among the fashion know-how. ‘Emma got the look just right,’ one eyewitness said. ‘It would have been a big mistake to try an over the top outfit. Her dress wowed the crowds but looked sophisticated at the same time.’ Other attendees included Slumdog Millionaire stars and off-screen lovers Freida Pinto and Dev Patel, who are now happily flaunting their relationship after a spell of camera-dodging. Agyness Deyn turned up in a ruffled mint green dress and black stockings while actress Liv Tyler opted for black leggings. Earlier in the evening, fashion giant Burberry announced it was ‘thrilled to be back’ in London as top industry names gathered tonight for one of the most eagerly-awaited catwalk shows of the year.
I guess now we know why Emma flew back home to the UK after beginning classes at Brown University here in the States earlier this month. As spokesmodel for the brand, it makes sense that Burberry would want her in the front row of their Spring ’10 fashion show. She looks fab in this gold dress … looooove her!! Burberry must be doing very well these days, they managed to cull together a pretty impressive list of attendees. I guess that brown plaid is back in vogue.
