At the beginning of the year we predicted our top ten fashionable faces to watch. And, blow me down! We were pretty spot on. However, 2012 did bring with it some surprises in the style stakes. Fresh-faced actresses, industry insiders-cum-bloggers and supermodel siblings were all unexpected but very welcome additions to our weekly best-dressed lists. Step inside to get familiar with the girls who made us do a double take in twenty-twelve.
What a cutie! Romeo Beckham has bagged himself a spot in Burberry's Spring/Summer 2013 collection campaign, shot by Mario Testino no less. The genetically blessed second eldest son of David and Victoria adds some youthful exuberance to the slick production, larking about in one of the British brand's iconic trench coats next to Charlie France and Edie Campbell. Romeo joins the rest of the Burberry family for the S/S season including the devilishly handsome Eddie Redmayne and breakout modelling star of the year Cara Delevingne, with Chief Creative Officer of Burberry Christopher Bailey saying of the shoot, "We had such fun shooting the campaign and I think that comes through in the images which really reflect the upbeat spirit of the collection." Agreed! Step inside to get a closer look at Romeo's first modelling gig. Images courtesy of Burberry.

Unsurprisingly, the British Fashion Awards drew an incredibly dressed crowd in London today. The official gongs went out to our new favourite face Cara Delevingne (in Burberry) who was named Model of the Year, Stella McCartney who nabbed both the Designer of the Year and Designer Brand of the year titles, while Alexa Chung took home the publicly voted British Style Award. Erdem was honoured with the New Establishment Award and Sophie Hulme picked up the Emerging Talent Award for accessories. On the frock front there were some clear winners. Our top points go to Chanel model/muse Edie Campbell who looked peachy keen in Christopher Kane, Rita Ora who shone in Vivienne Westwood and Pixie Geldof in scarlet satin. Get a good look at who wore what at for fashion's night of nights in London-town. . .
Edie Campbell plays with the gender divide in Chanel's latest video campaign, toying the idea of dual gender and the reflection of self as seen by others in this short, but poignant clip, as directed by Cyrille De Vignemont. Karl's favourite face (Edie closed the S/S Chanel show) faces off as both boy and girl, managing we think to look equally alluring whilst skulking round the studio and playing peekaboo in this chic hallway of mirrors. Press play to watch Ms Campbell switch from lady to lad, then tell us which look you prefer.
Burberry Beauty has revealed British models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Edie Campbell as the faces of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign, and boy do they look good.
