Burberry Front Row
Burberry's front row featured an odd mix: grungy British cool kids and high-watt star power.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul sat beside model and former MTV host Alexa Chung, followed by fellow model Douglas Booth, then Sarah Jessica Parker, Serena Williams, and English tennis star Andy Murray. Before the show started, Williams crossed the runway to hug Anna Wintour, who was seated in the front row with her niece. As the lights began to fade, signaling the start of the show, Parker sprinted across the runway into Anna's arms. With the first model about to come out, it was time for everyone to take their seats—but the actress ran down the line of editors to greet Elle's Joe Zee. Just in the nick of time, Parker was back in her seat next to Williams, who, as soon as the show began, dropped her pink-sparkling Blackberry squarely on the runway.
But perhaps more interesting than the front row were those in the second: model Dree Hemingway—who hosted a hot party with jewelry designer Brown's on Tuesday night—sat behind Aaron Paul and next to British it-girl Pixie Geldof. Across the runway, Vogue's European Editor at Large Hamish Bowles was surprisingly in the second row—directly behind Wintour.
