Hello-Hello, please allow us to express our gratitude that today is Friday. Good grief, what a frenzied week!
As promised, we are finally posting photos from the Burberry Prorsum show at London Fashion Week, starting with celebrities on their way to the show.
As always, Ms. Beckham is looking rather fierce. Below, the new star of the Burberry advertising campaign, Emma Watson.
A closer look at Ms. Watson’s shoes:
We love the way photographers at events are now shooting things like shoes.
Also on hand, über-prep Gwyneth Paltrow, seen below with Ms. Roberts.
On to the clothes:
We did love the pastel color palette.
We didn’t see one negative review of the show. From the Suzy Menkes column in the IHT:
“…. Burberry Prorsum set a gold standard for London fashion week. The show was sophisticated, modern and about as far as you can step on giant platform shoes from Burberry’s muddy, military origins.”
Incredible best describes the draping on the pieces.
More from the IHT/NYT story by Ms. Menkes:
“Ironically, after a soggy, rain-soaked British summer 2009, Mr. Bailey offered only sunny weather clothes, created in the trench coat’s traditional neutral color or in macaroon pastels, from sugar pink and primrose yellow to ice blue.”
Ms. Menkes continues with a look at the brand’s target demo:
“The brand may have deep British roots, but the clothes were aimed at the young, fast-paced international set.”
The Telegraph story took note of the number of celebrities in attendance:
From the left, Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Alexa Chung and Mary-Kate Olsen.
There were bubble dresses and skirts accompanied by lots of ruching.
While not for TP, the pieces look stunning in the photos we have seen.
We have two more quick hits, the first from Milan Fashion Week (yes, it is already underway, can you believe it?!), as Vogue’s Anna Wintour escorts Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka Vravinec, to the Armani show.
We close with an inside look at the clothing chosen by the PGA for our Presidents Cup committee members.
Below we see Greg Norman, President Obama, PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem, Fred Couples and Vice President Biden in the oval office with the Cup; the President is the honorary Chair of the event.
The apparel is by Hickey Freeman, a ‘go to’ for the Consort. Actual play gets underway October 6 at Harding Park in San Francisco.
May everyone have a simply splendid weekend filled with sun and relaxation!

I am coming to the conclusion that painful shoes will be in fashion until I leave this earth.
Doesn’t Roger Federer look so preppy you would mistake him for being born and bred in Old Greenwich, CT? Also, on a different note, can someone please teach Emma Watson how to pose? Maybe Gwyneth can help?!
Have a lovely weekend!
Ohh…I do like the Burberry line! Usually not a fan of Victoria B, but love her in that dress. And poor Emma’s feet must have been killing her.
The gathering of fabric is what is drawing me to it. Done right! One does not look like a mummy 😉
What is a high end designer show without one of the Olsen twins in attendance? I suppose that would be one without Gwyneth. I did see that picture of Becks a few days ago. If she loses anymore weight, she is going to fall through the cracks in the pavement. Thin is one thing, all pointy angles is another.
I love Burberry line, and Roger’s look (so preppy!!)
Looks like Burberry is the highlight of the whole season!
Loving the pink!
The Burberry pieces are stunning, although tres short, my goodness I’m afraid my legs like a little more coverage than that!
