As if LFW wasn't already the apex of chaos - the crowds! the celebs! the clothes! - today's BAFTA awards made things even crazier (not to mention they were setting up right across from the Topshop venue on Russell Street all day so the pavements were mobbed with fans trying to get a peek at Carey Mulligan and Kristen Stewart). But the film awards didn't take all the A-listers away from the fash pack. In fact, celebrities were all over the place - we spotted Sienna Miller at the Matthew Williamson show (as usual, we loved his gorgeous jewel tones but weren't too keen on the crazy embellished gowns and draped dresses at the end) and the actress also attended the designer's after-party at the Ivy. In between, she, along with sister Savannah, squeezed in a presentation of their casual-cool a/w 2010 Twenty8Twelve collection - talk about packing a lot into one afternoon.
In other celebrity news, Janet Jackson made a surprise appearance front row at Todd Lynn, and we can definitely see her rocking the leather-and-fur jackets and coats that made up his hunting-inspired a/w 2010 collection. She also turned up at Vivienne Westwood along with Ke$ha, Jo Wood, Pixie Lott and Naomi Campbell. At Julien Macdonald, comedian Alan Carr, Zoe Kravitz and actress Naomi Harris all made an appearance, admiring the sexy, lingerie-inspired dresses that came down the runway.
We were completely obsessed with Mulberry today. Glitter panther cookies before the presentation, the cutest accessories (as always) and a French bulldog walking the runway in Fair Isle knits (which matched the ones worn by the model, natch). It doesn't get much better...until the after-party, that is, which also took place at the Orangery at Kensington Palace and was a raucous affair with yummy pies, margaritas and watching guests like hostess Alexa Chung grab the mike for impromptu SingStar competitions. We also loved the fabulous jewel tones at Meadham Kirchhoff, the velvet dresses at Richard Nicoll and all of the amazing talent that showed at the Central St. Martins MA show this evening, especially because they took so many risks with their clothes, and isn't that what London fashion is supposed to be all about?
