I’m not plus-size, but as a fashion-loving girl who’s small-framed and somewhat oddly proportioned, I completely sympathize with the plight that is finding quality clothing that not only just kind of fits but truly flatters. It can be incomprehensibly difficult to style a woman who doesn’t adhere to the slim, often straight up-and-down silhouette that designers cater to (see: the gorgeous Christina Hendricks and her many sartorial misses). Adele — and, giving credit where credit is due, her stylist — is the consummate example of a woman who dresses beautifully for her shape, oftentimes with the help of Burberry Prorsum creative director Christopher Bailey.
Now, rumors are rumors, but this is one that’s too exciting not to spread: Vogue UK reported this morning that the chanteuse may have been approached by Bailey to be not only an ambassador for the quintessentially British fashion house, but also to collaborate on a bespoke line for plus-size women. Neither Burberry nor Adele have commented on the potential partnership, so for now it’s all just hearsay… but wouldn’t it be awesome? [Fashionista]

You’ve seen the controversial Burberry Body fragrance print ad starring a nearly nude Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dressed in just a rose gold satin trench coat. Well, check out the Mario Testino-filmed TV advert where the “Transformers 4″ actress strips down while spritzing on the sexy new floral fragrance.
“It’s the Burberry world translated into a scent, embodying every facet of the brand including our music, collections, scent, platforms and communities,” said Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s chief creative officer. ” We wanted to create something very British, feminine, timeless, distinctive and effortlessly sensual, with the attitude and energy of our iconic trench coat at the heart of it.” Read more… Keep reading »
Hands down, my favorite thing about Fashion Week is knowing at some point, a model will fall
on the catwalk and it will be caught on film. And even though I would never want anyone to get hurt, least of all one of our prized human clothing racks, I find models falling to be hysterical. Some people disagree. Luckily, this is America and we’re all entitled to our own opinions. I like the way this model wobbles as she’s getting up, like she might just topple over again. Enjoy that? We have a whole page of models falling
— you’re welcome. Keep reading »
Have you watched the new “Say Yes to the Dress”? The one in Atlanta? At one point, a bride tries on a gown she can’t afford, and the saleswoman opines the bride “has champagne taste and a beer pocketbook.” My purse isn’t made out of an old Bud can or anything, but if I shop at the Gap, why do I dream of expensive things? Like this blue acrylic and silver spiked cuff by Burberry that costs $215? Do you have champagne taste but a beer budget? Keep reading »
Following in mom’s fashionable footsteps, Sally Draper — as in Don and Betty’s daughter on Mad Men — recently modeled Burberry Prorsum for Interview Magazine. Kiernan Shipka, the 10-year-old who plays Sally, actually looks weirdly appropriate wearing clothes ten sizes too big and 20 years too old for her. More images from the shoot, after the jump… Keep reading »
