It seems that some recent Burberry lovin’ has called for a cross-Atlantic (fashun) war, as Paloma Faith and Sandra Bullock donned an identical, pre-fall 2013, top-to-toe look by the heritage British fashion house.
First to sport the t-shirt and skirt ensemble was Sandra, who perfected the refined-yet-rockier approach to red carpet dressing at the BAFTA LA 2014 Awards Season tea party, back in January. Wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with iconic London landmarks atop a dark emerald green, knee-length skirt, Sandra looked every inch Hollywood royalty – sans the stuffy dress.
Smoky eyes to compliment the evening-perfect skirt, a jewelled statement necklace and simple black pumps completed the look. Opting to go hands-free, Sandra rounded off her outfit with a nifty shoulder bag.
But giving the Heat actress a run for her money was singer, actress and all-round-cool-girl, Paloma Faith, who arrived at the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 2014 show in the same look, earlier this month. But, being a front row favourite – she also performed at the show- comes with its pressures, and Paloma opted to add a touch of personal quirk to her look.
Pairing a maroon hat with matching coat over her outfit, her standout mane, dark red lips and feline-flick eyeliner added the perfect final touches. Black pumps and a bold pose finished the look nicely.
But, being a style stand-off, there can only be one winner; and this week, we’re going with…Paloma! Thanks to that topper and coat combo, the Brit babe topped our list and rocked Prorsum like a pro. We’re totally diggin’ Sandra’s gritty, uptown look, but she could’ve done without that dated shoulder bag.
