Chaos about sums up the backstage area after today’s Burberry show. After all, the likes of Harry Stiles and Bradley Cooper were in the house causing female frenzies at every turn. Escaping the crowds, Cara Delevingne looked calm and collected post-show when she posed for this shot.
Star power squared: one of them floated down the runway in floral silk and one of them stood behind it belting out the words “only love can hurt like this” with the emotion of one whose soul was being torn apart. And after the Burberry show was over, Paloma Faith and Cara Delevingne were just two regular girls in conversation.
It might have been spring. A billow of silk in hand-painted florals brushing past a bare, sandalled leg. With it, Burberry Prorsum’s London fashion week show opened, welcoming in the season of the Bloomsbury Girl – a girl wrapped in romance, a haze of antique sentiments, and handicrafts.

Gracing the front row and the soundtrack: not everyone manages to do both simultaneously. Paloma Faith did it in pretty pink lace at yesterday’s Burberry Prorsum men’s show in London, the heartfelt, piano-backed refrains her song Just Be making up part of the runway music.
