Fashion Week flew to London this weekend, and the stars went with it! At Mulberry alone, we spotted Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, and Lana Del Rey (who inspired the brand’s “Del Rey” handbag) posing with the brand’s creative director Emma Hill. And they weren’t the only ones who braved the London rains! Click through to see more stars at London Fashion Week.
Stars crowded into the Beverly Hilton last night for the second annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards, hosted by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and many of the night’s leading ladies chose summer-friendly blush colors. (Could it have been the thought of critics all around that told them to choose the safe hue?) Celebrity stylist Brad Goreski put together the flesh-tone Paule Ka outfit for Beth Behrs, and added a pop of fuchsia with her lip. “We thought of an Audrey Hepburn type of a look and this pink lipstick and the way this is silhouetted, it kind of reminded us of her,” the Two Broke Girls star told InStyle.com. Other ladies dressed in the pale tones included Best Reality Show Host winner Cat Deeley (in Mulberry), Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland (in Collette Dinnigan), and Best Guest Performer winner Lucy Liu (in Atelier Versace). See what everyone else wore to the ceremony in the gallery.

Lana Del Rey nailed it! The singer, and muse for Mulberry’s new Del Rey it bag, inspired new manicure products for Nail Rock, too. Designers from the brand teamed up with Mulberry to create the Lake Placid nail wraps—a nod to the star’s New York hometown and standout manicures. The swipe-on strips are available at Mulberry boutiques for the global launch of the Del Rey handbag.

Gossip Girl fourth episode of season five premieres Monday, and we have a sneak peek of the looks on the show! One outfit you’ll see: Serena (Blake Lively) in a sherbet-hued Yigal Azrouel shift dress from the label’s spring 2011 collection. The show’s stylist Eric Daman brought the piece into fall with a cable-knit Rag & Bone cardigan and a Mulberry bag in deep brown leather. For more looks from the new episode, titled “Memoirs of an Invisible Dan,” click through the gallery. Catch Gossip Girl on Monday, October 17th at 8/7c.
London Fashion Week took over the fashion world last weekend. Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth sat front and center at the Burberry fashion show, which ended with real snow falling from the ceiling. Stylish Brits Kate Moss and Alexa Chung both stopped by LFW festivities as well, as did one of New York’s most stylish socialites, Olivia Palermo. Issa designer Daniella Helayel, one of Kate Middleton’s favorites, showed her latest collection, along with Matthew Williamson, Vivienne Westwood, and Mulberry (shown left).

Britain’s top designers were honored yesterday in London for the annual British Fashion Awards, including footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood (center) who was named Accessory Designer of the Year. The designer, who is known for his architecturally-inspired shoes, got his start working with Kate Middleton’s favorite hat maker Philip Treacy. Kirkwood’s eponymous line garnered attention last spring when shoe-fanatic Sarah Jessica Parker wore his suede platform shoes (shown far left) three times in one week! His other celebrity fans include Claudia Schiffer (center, right) and Jessica Alba, shown above in a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood sandals. Other BFA winners include Phoebe Philo of Celine for Designer of the Year, Mulberry for Designer Brand, Burberry for Digital Innovation Award, Naomi Campbell for the Special Recognition Award and resounding new it-girl Alexa Chung for British Style. The late designer Alexander McQueen was also honored with the award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design—watch the moving tribute video directed by photographer Nick Knight after the jump.
