Burberry Makes Fashion History, But We're More Interested In The Front Row: 3 A-Lister Styles To Get Now
February 24, 2010
While yesterday’s Burberry show made fashion history–livestreaming the show online (and in some major cities, in 3-D!) we were more interested in the sparkly shiny front row and it stars pulled off hard-to-wear trends. Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart, Claire Danes, and Olivia Palermo showed that Burberry is more than just overpriced trenches–it’s all about sparkles, nude colors, and platform sandals for spring. We’re so there.
Here are some affordable pieces that will help you look like you deserve a ticket to fashion week next season:
Kate Hudson and Olivia Palermo both weren’t afraid to shine in these sparkly stand-out pieces. They stuck with clean lines which made the sequin less overwhelming and look more polished than, well, disco.
This Victoria’s Secret Sequin Blazer ($159) has a the boyfriend shape that we love, and can be belted like Olivia Palermo’s jacket. The navy blue sequins make the sweater look rich, not cheap, which is important when dressing with sequins.
Kristen Stewart and Claire Danes wore delicate, feminine pieces in nude colors that would look good for any formal occasion. Claire’s nude platform sandals will go with practically anything–and (we can’t say it enough) make your legs look longer and slimmer.
Stewart’s silk knotted skirt might not work for all figures, but this gray James Perse rouched skirt ($125) is a simpler, more wearable alternative. And these Via Spiga Milicent sandals ($215) will do the trick.
