It’s official: The Brits really
know how to throw a Hollywood party. Los Angeles was invaded last night by England’s most stylish, from the Beckhams to Cara Delevingne, to fete the opening of Burberry's new Rodeo Drive flagship store. Of course, a simple store party just would not do. Instead, the fashion house took over Hollywood's landmark Griffith Observatory for a splashy cocktail mixer and runway show with sweeping views of the city.
As you can imagine, it was quite a scene. From the star-studded cocktail hour to the runway show itself, England's most fashionable were represented: the entire Beckham clan, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham, Elton John, Suki Waterhouse, Kate Beckinsale, and Ashley Madekwe, just to name a few. But, of course, the many stars on hand weren't all kin to the Union Jack — Mila Kunis, Rose Byrne, and Jaime King, plus Hollywood royalty like Anjelica Huston, all turned up in their Burberry finest.
The show itself, closed by none other than Naomi Campbell, took place in a custom-built structure (no opportunity for theatrics was spared!) and featured a collection of evening wear exclusive to the new L.A. location.
The whole affair begs the question we've been asking since Tom Ford chose Hollywood for his fall 2015 runway show
: Is L.A. the next big fashion destination? Judging by Burberry's foray into Tinseltown, we're going with a resounding yes.
