Which A-listers bagged a front row seat this season? See who wore what (and sat where) at London Fashion Week SS15...
London Fashion Week SS15
Alexa, Pixie and Chanel stylist Caroline Sieber make for one very cool FROW at Christopher Kane.
After the whirlwind that was New York, London Fashion Week SS15 got off to a seriously starry start over the weekend, with fashion’s finest descending on the capital to take up their front row place at the shows.
Stepping out to attend a packed schedule at Somerset House, Daisy Lowe lead the A-list attendees at super-cool label SIBLING, sitting front and centre in a navy knit and crochet skirt to preview the bow-adorned – and frankly, downright fun – SS15 collection.
Fresh from NYC, Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo were both spied stepping out at Emilia Wickstead, while Mary Charteris, Abbey Clancy and Millie Mackintosh (to name but a few) all arrived at early to save premium spots at Julien Macdonald.
First up – Olivia Palermo. Palermo graced the front row at Burberry, working the signature look from the AW14 show, and our favourite new-season trend – the belted scarf. We’re glad to see this style maven hitting up the LFW shows, and hope to see plenty more appearances in the future…
Click on to see which other celebrities bagged a seat on the front row at London Fashion Week this season…
Alexa Chung always manages to nail the off-duty model look, even when attending a super-glam even tlike the Business Of Fashion dinner. That high-neck, 60’s frock is oh-so-chic, while those Altuzarra heels and that Shrimps fluffy clutch add a fashion edge to Alexa’s less-is-more look.
Cat Deeley has long been a fixture on the FROW at Burberry, and this year was no different. We love that this model-turned-presenter broke all the Burberry beige carpet rules, opting to avoid the trench, opting for a chic jumpsuit, instead. Nice work Cat…
Poppy and Cara were seen heading out of Clardiges, dashing off to the very excusive Business Of Fashion dinner at Downing Street. Cara kept her look distinctly rock-chick, opting for some high-shine, high-waist trews paired with a sheer top and fur jacket, while Poppy went all out glam, in an edgy studded lace look. All in all, this is one very cool Delevingne duo.
Following closely behind was long-term BFF Suki Waterhouse, heading to the BOF dinner solo (her other half positioned front row beside HRH Anna Wintour at Tom Ford). Suki worked a black embellished midi and a bedhead hair ‘do that we are loving for her appearance at the start-studded evening.
Anna Wintour managed to remove those sunnies and break her no FROW chit-chat rule to engage in a little light convo with none other than Bradley Cooper (who wouldn’t?). Could Wintour be adding Brad to her never-ending list of high profile friends? We hope so…
BFC ambassador and all-round style maven, Laura Bailey looked lovely in red at Tom Ford’s SS15 show, making those much-loved co-ords look uber elegant, opting for a roll neck knit and high-wasited pencil skirt.
Daisy Lowe looks more then pleased to attending the SS15 Erdem show, as would we if we got to wear a dress that beautiful. We love how Daisy adds a sexy twist to her ladylike look, flashing a bit of black bra, keeping the look unmistakably Lowe.
Laura Bailey went for a more familiar style to attend the Erdem show, working a blue shirt, tucked in to a high-wasited full skirt, all pulled together with a bold belt and some skyscraper heels.
Poppy Delevingne rocked a chic blue look for her appearance at Burberry. Loving those signature peep toe boots.
Elena Perminova rocked up to the SS15 show wearing pretty much everything on our Burberry AW14 wish-list. Love the thigh-split and peep toe boots, and is that the coveted blanket tote we spy, too?
Lily Donaldson showed off those enviable model pins in a pair of micro shorts for her beige carpet appearance at Burberry SS15. And in true model style, Lily takes on the shoulder robe, and totally nails it.
Mega Monday saw Anna Wintour grace the FROW at Burberry, working that signature Wintour uniform. Is that a slight smile we see?
Daisy Lowe changed up her look for something altogether mor elegant, stepping out for the Giles SS15 show. We love the pretty pink retro frock, and think that grey cover-up completes the look perfectly.
Like mother like daughter. This duo have had a very busy weekend of FROW-hopping if these pics are anything to go by.
If you weren’t too sure how to work a statement wide-leg trouser – check out Daisy Lowe’s look for some inspiration. Keeping the look cool, Daisy opts to flash that super-toned midriff, as would we if ours looked that good.
Fashion heir Mary Chanteris and actress Jamie Winston are the eptiome of London cool, stepping out at Giles SS15. We love Jamie’s 90’s grunge look, while Mary didn’t let the mild weather put her off rocking a super-cool fur coat.
For one of many appearances at LFW, Alexa worked the 60’s look, this time stepping out to support BFF and LFW designer, Henry Holland. We love the unexpected black and pink combo, and think this look is all the proof we need that flats are firmly back on the fashion map.
Olivia Palermo took up her seat at Marchesa with none other than Christian Louboutin. Looking as effortlessly chic as ever, Palermo rocked an intrictately embroidered midi-dress with pointed courts (could they be by her fellow frow-er?), while Christian Louboutin went for a far less subtle look, opting for a tartan jacket, complete with matching bow tie. Could there be a more stylish front row duo? We think not…
Nicole Scherzinger joined the fashion-folk to take in the latest collection from Temperley. Dressed in a dragonfly printed dress, Nicole looked as glamorous as ever as she watched the SS15 show. Could we be seeing this stylish lady in a Temperley gown on the red carpet sometime soon? We hope so…
Mary Chanteris was out and about over the opening weekend of LFW, and taking her seat at Temperley, Mary opted for a metallic biker jacket, star-print trousers and some pointed red boots. Working a rock-chick look that we are totally loving.
Alexa Chung is a firm fixture on the LFW frow scene, so it was no suprise to see this stylish ex-model rock up for Topshop’s latest offering. And if anyone can pull off a leopard print mini paired with a pastel yellow top and pigtails – it’s Alexa.
Ellie Goulding took time out from her busy music schedule to soak up the scene at the most glittering show of LFW – Topshop Unique. Opting for a quilted leather pencil skirt, teamed with a sheer black blouse, we think Miss Goulding nailed her front row look, and if that mega-watt smile is anything to go by, she loved the collection just as much as we did…
Making yet another appearance at LFW, Abbey Clancy looked suitably stylish attending the Topshop Unique show, rocking the trend of-the-moment – 70’s. And totally nailing it. Keep up the good work, Abbey…
Rita Ora looked suitably demure at the launch of Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection, and so she should, for this event looked super-glamorous. Click through to see which other A-list celebs joined her…
Alexa has been busy, turning up to some of the coolest LFW shows and parties on offer, managing to keep those ubelievably cool looks coming. How she does it, we just don’t know. This pretty blouse and blazer look is more like the low-key alexa looks we know and love. We expect to see plenty more of this stylish ex-model over the coming days…
Poppy Delevingne and Daisy Lowe are no strangers to the stylish party scene, so it was no suprise to see this duo looking cooler than ever. We love Poppy’s green striped frock, and love that Daisy took on that black one shoulder lace jumpsuit.
Olivia Palermo was just one of many celebs attending Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection launch, opting for a top-to-toe black look for her appearance. We love Palermo’s low-key approach to glamorous eveningwear, working a belted jacket with some cropped, wide leg trousers. Those tan barely-there sandals are high up on our wish-list, too.
Amber Le Bon has been doing the rounds at LFW, and we couldn’t be happier, as we are loving seeing her sartorial styling skills, and think this metallic dress is one of our favourites so far.
Could there be a more stylish snap from a party? We think not. Anna Wintour turned up for Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection launch, looking as elegant as ever. Room for one more?
Laura Bailey went for a bold polka dot look for her appearance at Stella McCartney’s star-studded launch event. We can always rely on Laura Bailey to step out in something super-chic, and this look is no different.
Lily Donaldson took a moment out of her busy show schedule, taking time to tread the party scene instead. We love the white skinny jeans and powder blue blazer combo, and think Lily has totally nailed the off-duty model look.
Colin Firth almost rivalled his very stylish wife, Livia, with this dapper look. We love Livia’s Stella McCartney embellished shift dress, and think that super-sleek blow dry is a winning look.
One of our favourite high-profile couples, Salma Hayek and husband (and fashion power-house) Francois-Henri Pinault stepped out looking about as sophisticated as it gets, posing during Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection launch.
An unexpected pair to spot during LFW, Colin Firth and Samuel Jackson both stepped out to enjoy what was on offer at Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection launch, taking in all those glam evening dresses, no doubt.
Daisy Lowe took her place on the front row for Sibling, and looks pretty pleased with the view that comes with it. We love the burgundy/navy combo, and reckon Daisy’s demure daywear look could be a little much-needed workwear inspiration.
Abbey Clancy has been one busy lady this London Fashion Week. The blonde beauty spent Saturday dashing from show to show (squeezing in the obligatory outfit changes in-between) to take up her place on several of the stellar SS15 FROWs. Along with a handful of other A-list names, SIBLING was high up on her hit list?
Abbey Clancy wasn’t the only one watching intently as the SIBLING SS15 show got underway. The design trio’s super-sized Minnie Mouse bows, blown up biker jackets and knitted, layered maxi skirts had the fashion pack’s undivided attention.
Fresh from New York, Alexa Chung arrived in London just in time to take up her place at Emilia Wickstead SS15. The model, who has worn several of Wickstead’s designs in recent weeks, arrived to preview the collection in a statement striped Bella Freud knit and her favourite Valentino heels.
Style maven Olivia Palermo threw on a statement knit to join a raft of stars arriving for Emilia Wickstead’s SS15 show at Banking Hall in London. Fast becoming the A-list’s go-to brand – and a firm favourite of royal Kate Middleton – design darling Wickstead’s stand-out collection showcased citrus brights, shimmering gowns and long structured skirts with daring front splits. In short? We. Want. It. All.
Amber Le Bon chose a pretty palette for latest London Fashion Week look, taking up a front row seat to preview Holly Fulton’s SS15 collection.
The celebs turned out in considerable force for Julien Macdonald’s SS15 show, held in the hallowed halls of the Royal Opera House. Model and DJ Lady Mary Charteris led the pack, indulging in a good gossip with Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, before posing for pre-show pictures.
Julien Macdonald’s starry SS15 line-up continued, with too-cool trio Laura Whitmore, Millie Mackintosh, Nat Weller stealing the front row spotlight. (Check out Nat’s super-cute pooch. Adorable!)
Abbey Clancy certainly stood out at Strictly pal Julien Macdonald’s SS15 show. The model arrived in a fabulous, flesh-flashing fringed frock of Julien’s design to take up her place in the FROW.
Made In Chelsea starlet Millie Mackintosh flashed her perfect pins in a daring, draped red dress of Julien Macdonald’s design to watch his star-packed SS15 show.
Laura Whitmore was yet another famous face spotted on the front row at Julien Macdonald’s SS15 show, dressed head-to-toe in his designs.
Rosie Fortescue joined her Made In Chelsea co-star Millie Mackintosh on Julien Macdonald’s SS15 front row, stepping out in a laser-cut dress of Julien’s design, and blue-dipped popsicle scarf.
Laura Whitmore, Mary Charteris and Donna Air made for a seriously-cool trio at Gyunel SS14, the super-slick show which saw Yasmin Le Bon and daughter Amber walk in the collection.
Rita Ora wrapped up oh-so-warm for a trip to Hunter’s epic, graphic-printed show space, to preview the SS15 collection.
Millie Mackintosh, Roxie Nafousi and Rosie Fortescue posed for pictures backstage at Amanda Wakeley SS15 at Somerset House.

One of our favourite shows of LFW, Christopher Kane, as ever, totally wowed us with his SS15 collection. Aside from the incredible illustrated catwalk and accoustic performance from James Bay, Jourdan Dunne and Suki Waterhouse took to the catwalk, among many other familiar faces to show Bailey’s latest range of covetable coats, and more. See our top looks…
