Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Show-Stopping Burberry Look

Fashion was at an all-time high in LA last night as everyone from the entire Beckham family to the cast of Mad Men to model besties Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse flocked to the Griffith Observatory to celebrate the opening of Burberry’s Rodeo Drive store.  Yet, even with all of that star power on hand, we feel confident in saying that no one even came close to matching the sartorial perfection that was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s front row look.

As always, the model/actress looked nothing short of jaw-dropping as she made her way through Burberry’s custom iron-wrought gates.  Where others went for minimal, monotone looks, the British beauty opted to turn heads in a multi-colored floral-print mini dress from the brand’s fall 2015 collection.  Though we’d argue that her best accessories that evening were her sun-kissed legs, sexy bedhead waves and her hunky Hollywood boyfriend Jason Statham, we’ll admit that her Ippolita and Anita Ko baubles and strappy Burberry sandals were also pretty spot-on.  Hey, if you’ve got it flaunt it right?

Liu Wen, Arizona Muse and More Step Out to Celebrate New Yorkers for Children’s Spring Gala

Last night, the Mandarin Oriental played host to a dazzling crowd of philanthropic New Yorkers, all of whom gathered for a night of recognition and celebration held in honor of the New Yorkers for Children Spring Gala. In addition to celebrating the eleventh year of its annual ‘A Fool’s Fete’ spring dinner dance benefiting youth in foster care, the organization also had the honor of working with Oscar de la Renta, who served as the evening’s presenting sponsor and honorary stylist to the stars.

Top models Arizona Muse, Julie Henderson, Hailey Clauson, Aline Baikova were all dressed to the nines in their ODLR finest, lighting up the red carpet with a mix of colors and silhouettes. Leading the color front was Alina Baikova, the face of Oscar de la Renta’s new fragrance Oscar Flor, who was spring personified in one of the house’s green floor-length numbers.  ”I’m very excited to be here tonight,” said Alina.  ”This is my first time attending New Yorkers for Children, but I’m hoping to learn a little something that I can bring to my charity back home in Ukraine.”

Kendall Jenner Bags Another One of Karl Lagerfeld’s Campaigns

Kendall Jenner has had quite the busy week — in addition to running around Coachella with Justin Bieber, it appears that her modeling career only continues to rise. She is all over the newsstands this month, gracing the covers of GQ and Harper’s Bazaar, and recently landed a major campaign with Calvin Klein.  And now, the 19-year-old appears to have another campaign to add to her ever-growing portfolio: Fendi.

On Thursday, the Italian house— led by Karl Lagerfeld — posted two pictures of Kendall and fellow catwalker Lily Donaldson to its Instagram account, naming the pair as the faces of an upcoming campaign, most likely for the fall 2015 collection.

Burberry Does London in Los Angeles With Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell and More

On Thursday night, Burberry brought a bit of London to Los Angeles with the staging of a massive runway show at the Griffith Observatory to celebrate the opening of its Rodeo Drive store.  As expected, the British brand pulled out at all the stops when it came to bringing the best of London to the City of Angels, going so far as to recreate an English garden for guests to enter through and flying in the First Battalion Grenadier Guards to lead the closing procession down the runway.

Much like it’s biannual ready-to-wear shows, the brand made sure to assemble a star-studded front row, which included the entire Beckham family, Sir Elton John, Kate Beckinsale, January Jones, Rose Byrne and model/actresses Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse.  Not too shabby, huh?

Taking selfies is the craze that has swept social media in recent years, but the Cannes Film Festival has put its foot down when it comes to them dominating its red carpet.”We are waging a campaign to slow down the contemporary practice of selfies on the red carpet and the steps,” revealed the head of the festival Thierry Frémaux. “Beyond what we think, it’s a practice that’s often extremely ridiculous and grotesque.” Way harsh Cannes. ~ Vogue UK

The full lip sync battle between John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick aired last night, and it was a DOOZY. Particularly the actor’s spot on performance of ‘NSync’s “Bye Bye Bye.” Seriously, who knew Jim Halpert could move like that! ~ Elle

Definitive Proof that Cara Delevingne is in Fact the World’s Most Popular Model

Is it just us, or is Cara Delevingne‘s Instagram becoming more star-studded by the week? In the past month alone, her page has seen appearances by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian, Scott Eastwood, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Will Smith— and that’s just the start of it!  These days, she seems to be friends with just about everyone and their mothers —it’s a known fact that she’s good friends with Kris Jenner after all— a phenomenon that we can only assume will continue to flourish as she dives deeper and deeper into the Hollywood acting scene.  After all, with each new movie role comes new co-stars and connections, or in Cara’s case, new friends.

To demonstrate just how deep her popularity runs, we decided to bust out one of our favorite parlor games— “Six Degrees of Separation” — and attempted to connect Cara with four of the most random celebrities that we could find.  As you can see in the image below, it didn’t take more than three connections to link her with the likes of Amal Clooney, Martha Stewart and the Queen of England herself.  And, because this is “six degrees of Cara Delevingne,” we even found a way to connect her to Kevin Bacon— the original benchmark for boundary-pushing popularity.

Check out our examples below and feel free to come up with your own and share them with us on Facebook and Twitter.  We promise, this is one game where the possibilities are endless.
