As Kate Middleton steps out in a Burberry trench, we ask which starlet wears the label's iconic cover-up best?
When Kate Middleton stepped out in a Burberry trench on Shrove Tuesday, style commentators were quick to comment on the match made in fashion heaven – the Royal bride-to-be wearing a homegrown sartorial classic, and naturally, the world soon sat up and took notice…
Within hours the Burberry website had sold out of Kate’s double-breasted cover-up of choice in an array of sizes, which features a pretty frilled hem and traditional aviator-style buckle belt.
As the latest recruit to the fashion house’s bulging A-list fan club, we couldn’t resist pitching Ms Middleton against some fellow Burberry belles – Blake Lively, Emma Watson and Alexa Chung – all devotees of the label’s outerwear.
Opting for a light neutral hue, Gossip Girl Blake wore her mac over a cocktail dress back in November 2010, while that same month Emma teamed polka dot tights with a studded custom-made version – the perk of being Burberry’s leading lady in those uber-stylish ads.
Alexa has long been a Burberry advocate, opting for the classic camel trench, almost identical to Kate’s in cut and silhouette, but teamed with bare legs and chunky ankle boots.
Four style stars, all with a penchant for Christopher Bailey’s designs – but who do you think wears their Burberry trench best? Let us know your verdict in the comments box below.
