Burberry held it's biggest fashion show/event on April 13, 2011 at Beijing Television Center in Beijing, China. Celebrating British weather, fashion and music and the opening of Burberry's new flagship store in Sparkle Roll Plaza, Burberry also invited British band, Keane to perform.


Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) arrived at the showspace with designer, Christopher Bailey. Wearing a Leather Taped Animal Print Dress from Spring/Summer 2011 with an animal print clutch, customized coat with black pumps —The dark lips on her pale skin is scary, I'm not a huge fan of her coat either.

Li Bing Bing (李冰冰) also wore a customized coat with a sweet pink dress from the collection. Buckled Leather Sandals to complete her look. —Baring her back, she picked the right dress. Flirty and sweet. Wrong shoes.


Chinese model, Shu Pei (秦舒培) who also walked the show in Beijing brought out the biker in her. Wearing Burberry Prorsum Bonded Cotton Twill Leather Taped Trench Coat with Stretched Leather Biker Trousers with Patent High-cut Pumps.

Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) wore a studded jacket with a beidge dress from the collection. She was also seen carrying Burberry Brights bag in orange with nude fishnet tights.

Actress Lin Peng (林鹏) wore a Gabardine Studded Shoulder Peplum Jacket with Silk Chiffon Asymmetric Dress. Completing her outfit with a pink Burberry Brights clutch and black sandals.


Korean actor Won Bin (원빈) kept it classic with Burberry Prorsum iconic trench coat from Spring/Summer 2011 mens' collection.

Dong Jie (董洁) wore Compact Jersey Double Breasted Navel Coat with the same yellow belt from the runway and Buckled Suede Ankle Boots, she was one of my favorites that night.


Wang Haizhen (王海珍) wore Burberry Prorsum Bonded Nappa Studded Biker Trench Coat with Silk Chiffon Asymmetric Dress in navy. Christian Louboutin Studded Very Prive pumps to complete her look. —Why cover the stunning dress?!, great shoes to match though.

Chen Ran (陈燃) surprised me with a 360° change. I couldn't regconized it was her. She looked fresh and young compared to 4 days ago at Marc Jacobs event. She wore Burberry Prorsum Cropped Leather Biker Vest with Buckled Suede Ankle Boots.


Yan Ni (闫妮) and Du Juan (杜鵑) were both wearing Buckled Leather Sandals. However, their outfits were very different.

Yan Ni (闫妮) wore her beige Burberry Prorsum dress with Burberry Brights accessories while Du Juan (杜鵑) wore a leather jacket with a studded dress and turquoise sling bag.

Both Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne, faces of Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign were also at the event. Jourdan Dunn opted for a Beeswax colored dress with a waist belt. While Cara Delevingne wore a navy dress with studs all over with Buckled Suede Ankle Boots.


The event was also livestreamed on burberry.com where the stars were interviewed. While they may look glamourous and stunning, many of them mentioned how heavy the garments were. Well, of course if you have hundreds of studs on you.


The 3D hologram fashion show was indeed innovative and creative, I was definitely impressed by Burberry. Keane also put up a stellar performance.

  1. Fan Bing is really scary there, she looks like a vampire... Most of the looks are misses, too much is going on... I like Chen Ran, even if it's simple, it's working for the event.
