A chic British invasion! Last night, Burberry’s “London In Los Angeles” show took over the Griffith Observatory, where more than 700 fashionettes and Tinseltown talents showed up, including Mila Kunis, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rose Byrne, Jaime King, Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, Elton John, January Jones, the whole Beckham brood, and Anna Wintour. The crowd ambled through an English garden created for the occasion before a lavishly-staged runway show. On the coed catwalk? Burberry campaign lovelies like Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, and Malaika Firth trotted out in the maison‘s Fall 2015 looks, and Brit star James Corden was the surprise finale appearance.
“Tonight we were proud to celebrate fashion, music and Britishness at the iconic Griffith Observatory. It was a privilege to be here with so many friends in such a wonderful city and the home of our new Rodeo Drive store,” said Burberry’s chief creative and executive officer, Christopher Bailey, in a statement.
Besides that lush garden situation (it was modeled after London’s Royal Parks, obviously), other Brit touches included a fleet of 19 First Battalion Grenadier guards, tricked out with flutes and drums. The guards were even projected on the Griffith Observatory at the show’s end. More Britishness on tap for the event? Talents from across the pond, Tom Odell, Clare Maguire, Benjamin Clementine, and George Ezra, performed during the show.
