The ever-lovely Keira Knightley wore a particularly elegant Burberry Prorsum gown last winter at the London premiere of A Dangerous Method. The conservative burgundy dress features a black bow at the waist and cap sleeves, yet reveals a much sexier side from another angle… Much like the twisted psychological tale Knightley was promoting. She accessorized it perfectly with a simple black clutch, cocktail ring, a swept-back bun, with dramatic dark eyes and a perfect pink pout. She is perfection.

“Suri” means pickpocket in Japanese, which makes sense, because we’d love to steal her style! Miss Cruise turned 6 today, and we’re counting down her Top 10 Looks – which, despite only being alive for a few years, was pretty hard to narrow down. No wonder she has her own blog…
1. Black & White & Cute All Over: This editor’s two favorite shades on a girl with her favorite coloring (brown hair, blue eyes, pale skin). This silk dress was made for her by Holmes & Yang (her mother’s design label). Suri looks like a china-doll with edge.2. Burberry Baby: This is probably Suri’s most famous outfit. She wore this classic Burberry plaid dress and bob haircut in 2007 that made her a style phenomenon. All of a sudden, toddlers everywhere were sporting this adorable ‘do.3. Lady in Red: Suri sported a similar dress to the NYC Ballet, but this one is by Helena & Harry. She paired it was a great pair of silver Bonpoint ballet flats and pigtails!4. Anchors Away: We featured this look last spring. This black and white Ralph Lauren nautical dress is perfect for the summer! We wish it came in our size!5. Bold Navy: There’s two things Suri seems to love – a great fashion moment, and a good cupcake. Here, she has both!
7. Disney Princess: All little girls play dress-up, but some get to do it for magazines. Here, Suri sports a Cinderella gown at the famous theme park in Florida. 8. 1980s Chic: The true mark of a trendsetter is pulling off something that wouldn’t normally look good – Suri does it all the time. Our editors hate both Juicy Couture and leggings, but here, Suri is pulling off both. College cardigan by Juicy, flats by Manolo Blahnik, leggings by American Apparel, and princess umbrella by Disney.
9. Boots Made for Walking: Our editors also happen to hate rain boots (mainly because they’re meant for children under 10, but college girls seem to think that’s their age group…), but Suri makes them look good, once again! Dress by mother’s label Holmes & Yang, accessories by Kidorable.
“You’re not in America now, you’re in Ireland. So have a drink and shut up,” Declan, played by Matthew Goode, tells Amy Adams’ character, Anna, in the 2010 film Leap Year. The two play complete opposites who end up roaming the Irish countryside together so that Anna can propose to her boyfriend in Dublin on February 29th – the one day when it’s okay for a woman to ask a man to marry him in Ireland. Inevitably, Anna ends up falling for her tour guide instead. They end up making one sexy Irish couple, which is why we’ve chosen them for today’s “Tuesday Twosome.” Here, Adams is wearing a Burberry trench coat with a green and white floral lining, tan Christian Louboutin pumps, and a mint green stitched top by Day Birger et Mikkelsen. The soft color combination against Adams’ red hair and bright blue eyes creates one lovely outfit. Her partner-in-crime, with a pretty gorgeous pair of blue eyes himself, Matthew Goode is sexy in brown pants, working class boots, a maroon-colored shirt and a dark peacoat from All Saints Spitalfields. Matthew Goode actually thought Leap Year ended up being one of the worst films made in 2010, but he took the role so he could fly home to London on weekends! Oh, well, we liked it!
This is the perfect outfit to feature for a February 29th that falls on “Pink Wednesday” – an outfit from the movie Leap Year! Normally, we save this film’s stylish looks for “Irish Week” prior to St. Patrick’s Day, but we have to celebrate a day that only comes around once every four years! In this film, Amy Adams plays an uptight American named Anna Brady who attempts to travel to the Emerald Isle so she can get engaged on Leap Day – the one day it’s okay for a woman to propose to a man in Ireland. Of course, a different Irish law comes into effect (one by the name of Murphy’s) and nothing goes as planned. Here, she’s getting particularly irritated in a lovely outfit, probably not meant for the back roads of the Irish countryside. Anna is sporting a floral blouse, a dark salmon pink cardigan adorned with flower buttons, and a high-waisted gray pencil skirt, all from Paul Smith. She accessorizes the look with tan Christian Louboutin pumps, Louis Vuitton luggage, and a Burberry trench coat with a green and white floral lining she wears throughout the whole film. Leap Day might throw Anna Brady’s love life out of whack, but at least it keeps her fashion choices and the calendar in sync!
This time of year usually revolves around the North Pole, but this week the news has been all about its magnetic opposite. Yesterday was the 100th Anniversary of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen (pictured, above) reaching the South Pole – making him the first human to ever set foot on the continent. About 10 years ago, this editor’s father made her read an article on the Antarctica voyager, Sir Ernest Shackleton, (pictured, below) in National Geographic. He was trying to illustrate the importance of hard work and determination, but being a teenage girl, the most memorable part I took away from the remarkable story was the fact that Shackleton outfitted his crew in Burberry. The British label is eponymous with glamorous raincoats, so it was quite surprising to learn that the chic clothing line was the choice of a rugged adventurer. Thomas Burberry, the company’s founder, invented the waterproof fabric gabardine (for those of you Seinfeld fans – that’s the thin layer of cloth separating Kramer and his private parts from his friends, when he decides to stop wearing underwear). The company went on to make coats that would keep these explorers, including Amundsen, dry and warm in extreme temperatures and conditions, which started the company’s tradition and reputation for creating resilient outerwear. The men on these ships would generally wear wool layers and top it off with a Burberry gabardine coat. (Fun Fact: This editor got a Burberry trench for college graduation from her parents, and it is the finest piece of clothing I’ve ever – and probably will ever – own. Tim Gunn said one Burberry trench should literally “last a lifetime.”) Burberry is also committed to supporting the imagination and vision these voyagers held, by creating the Burberry Foundation, which organizes opportunities for young people with dreams. So when Santa enjoys himself by the fire this year, remember it was Burberry keeping his brothers on the other side of the globe warm enough to live to tell about it. Saint Nick brings presents, but these men brought us the extraordinary tale of seeing the world – and never giving up.
The trench coat is the definitive piece of outerwear that screams style, sexiness and sleekness for both genders. In fiction, these fashionable coats show up on spies, comic book heroes, and in several of the most epic romantic scenes in cinema – including this one! In Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn sports her trench twice: first, when her mysterious ex-husband shows up for a visit and Paul discovers a little bit more about Holly’s past; the other is the last scene of the movie – which is why it made sense to make it the final “Look-of-the-Day” celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the film. While nearly all of the costumes in the film were made by Hubert de Givenchy, this gorgeous raincoat was made by none other than Burberry! It’s no surprise the British label went on to become the go-to choice when buying the famous military-inspired coats. Holly and Paul are two no-name lost souls, just like the pet cat, but they realize they’re going to disappear if they don’t find each other first… And in the pouring rain in the streets of Manhattan, they finally do.
