British brand Burberry is much more than signature plaid — just ask any of the fashion-forward A-listers who came out to support the re-opening and redesign of its Beverly Hills store Monday night. From Kate Hudson‘s bright yellow mini and Liv Tyler‘s rock-star blazer to Kate Beckinsale‘s ethereal chiffon dress, this was no proper tea party. Stars raved about the efforts of their hosts, Creative Director Christopher Bailey and famed photographer Mario Testino. “I love how [Bailey] mixes the traditional and the modern so well,” said actress Molly Sims, “how he’ll take a beautiful dress and add a chunky necklace, or a heel, or a patent.” Accessories were the real stars of the evening, from peep toes with thick ruched straps to statement necklaces and spike bracelets. Enthused Mena Suvari, “I love this whole kind of romantic rock chic that he does with the spikes. He really makes couture on the cutting edge.” For Testino, who’s been photographing the line’s campaigns for over a decade, Bailey has stayed true to the Burberry mentality. “Christopher has given it something very fresh, something that feels very right now, without having lost the heritage,” he told reporters. –Shruti Dhalwala
