But how much did we love it? Let us count the ways…

There Were 42 Leather ‘N Lace Looks
Come next autumn Miss Topshop will be all ruffled up, wearing rocking one hell of a sartorial clash between historical costume and pure rock sexiness. Victoriana high collars were slashed to make frilly choker necklaces, smoking blazers were reinvented in star-studded velvet, a conservative lace dress is chopped into a mini, doused in hot pink and rendered completely see-thru.


Seven IT Models Sat Front Row

The front row was an off-duty model frenzy. Lottie Moss was first to arrive, swiftly followed by Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, Lara Stone and a girl gang of supermodels past, present and future. Olivia Palermo, Suki Waterhouse, Daisy Lowe and co. joined the pack on the front row, in what was the starriest line-up we’ve seen so far this LFW. See all the pictures in the gallery above.

Three New-Gen Supers Walked The Runway
Sam Rollinson, Olympia Campbell and Malaika Firth all rocked the show, reminding those models on the front row that this is indeed the most fun job in the world. Plus we caught Malaika chilling backstage pre-show, playing video games on her mobile. What a babe.



There Were Two Key Lip Colours To Note

Punks and club kids inspired a bold and beautiful concept from Hannah Murray, Topshop makeup’s creative director. Extra extra chunky winged eyeliner and fuchsia versus soft peach lips complimented the big hair don’t care attitude from L’Oreal Professionel’s Anthony Turner.
