Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Liv Tyler and Emma Watson were among the stars who watched the Burberry show at London Fashion Week
The event closed the womenswear previews, and attracted a host of famous faces from Hollywood actresses to legendary photographers and famous magazine editors.
Models Twiggy, Agyness Deyn and Daisy Lowe, photographer Mario Testino, actress-and-designer Mary-Kate Olsen, TV presenter Alexa Chung, actress Freida Pinto, actor Dev Patel, US Vogue editor Anna Wintour and French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld all sat front row.
The show marked Burberry's first at London Fashion Week for 10 years, with the brand deciding not to show in Milan as usual to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the UK capital's fashion week.
Burberry Prorsum - Latin for forward - showed the iconic trench coat for which the brand is famed.
It came down the runway in gabardine, as well as silk satin, leather and suede, and in shades of pink, lavender, silver and gold.
Keen to add his own stamp to the iconic piece, designer Christopher Bailey shortened it to mid-thigh and added puff sleeves.
Also featured were short skirts of silk chiffon, cashmere jumpers, leggings and skill trousers.
Gwyneth said after the show: "London is where it's at. It inspires the world."
Anna was also quick to praise the event, saying: "This is a great night for London."
Other designers to show yesterday included Amanda Wakeley, Fashion East, Basso and Brooke and Jonathan Saunders.
