When it comes to transforming the classic Burberry trench into a modern masterpiece, designer Christopher Bailey is quite the magician. For his fall collection, titled “Trench Kisses,” at London Fashion Week, he incorporated kitschy (even kinky) elements, like all-over hearts and slick latex. The transparent fabric popped up on skirts (revealing cheeky undergarments), tops, and jackets, all in a classic neutral palette spotted with pops of leopard print. For evening, he created bold cocktail dresses, some with built-in neck pieces, which cleverly replaced jewelry. The accessories also offered a lot to look forward to, like low-heeled animal print wedges, fur-covered evening clutches, and ladylike totes. See our favorite looks in the gallery.

London Fashion Week has been a star-studded event this season! Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, hopped the pond to support Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” collaborator Tom Ford at his fall debut. And a long list of A-list ladies sat front-row at Burberry Prorsum: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Freida Pinto, Rita Ora, Kate Beckinsale, Michelle Dockery, and more!

Before Anne Hathaway won the Best Supporting Actress honor for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables at the 2013 BAFTA Awards in London today, she walked the red carpet in a studded Burberry gown. Another stunning look from the star—she’s good at those!—and the best part of the red carpet outfit had to be her book-inspired clutch, which showed the vintage cover of Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Miserables. What a touch!

Why did Aaron Paul love his Burberry suit at last night’s SAG Awards? “They put me in clothes that make me feel much cooler than I actually am!” the Breaking Bad star told InStyle.com at the show. “Burberry has treated me well for many years. It’s true. When I take this off, I feel super insecure,” he added jokingly. Not a joke? His bow tie, which he cinched himself. “I did my first bow tie the other day,” he explained. “I was watching a YouTube video and I said ‘I’m going to learn this.’ So, I looked in the mirror and I learned how to do it!” Fabulous work! Jesse Pinkman sure cleans up nicely.

InStyle’s Man of Style, Eddie Redmayne, looked every bit the part at the National Board of Review Awards in New York last night, when he joined his Les Miserables cast members on stage to accept the Best Ensemble Award dressed in an impeccably tailored suit by Burberry. The fashion choice was fitting for the dapper 31-year-old Brit, as he is currently the face of the British company and sat front row at the label’s fashion show last year. “When I go to a premiere, I quite like putting on a suit,” Redmayne told InStyle for our December issue. “I’m into Alexander McQueen and Burberry. Something that fits well makes me feel stronger, especially on the red carpet.” We can’t wait to see what this dashing gent wears all awards season!
