Fashion Police at Burberry Prorsum S/S 2012: celebrities in leather trousers

Anna Wintour arrives at the Burberry Prorsum SS 2012 show

Is anyone else uncomfortably reminded of the awkward hug between Draco Malfoy and Voldemort in Harry Potter? Because we are. But moving on…

The Burberry Prorsum SS 2012 show at London Fashion Week this year was notable for one thing. Well, actually, it was notable for quite a few things, really, but there’s only one we’re choosing to focus on: EVERYONE WAS WEARING THE SAME TROUSERS. (Except Anna, obviously. AS IF Anna would wear trousers. Pah!)

The trousers in question are black, skinny leather trousers, presumably by Burberry Prorsum, and worn by every single person in our gallery. This could be a sign that leather trousers are coming back to the forefront of fashion once more (not that they’ve been anywhere, mind you, but there’s a particularly large selection of them available at the moment), or it could be a sign of the coming apocalypse, and the fact that Anna Wintour is smiling in the above photo seems to support that idea, so it’s the one we’re going to go with.

Before the apocalypse hits, however, do us a favour, take a look at the gallery, and tell us what you think of these celebrity outfits. Who wore the leather pants best?

    That jacket Anna is enveloped in is completely horrid. Not to mention ill fitting. Looks like something a disenchanted 15 year old overly sensitive boy would wear while sloping off down the shops to buy a pack of Rothmans, plotting to knock off half his school with a sawn off shotgun.

    I LOVE the Harry Potter reference! Thank you for refernceing the most awkward hug ever! (by the way, I noticed in the FAQ that you said you spell certain words differntly because you live in the UK. In Canada, we spell them with the ‘ou’ as well)

      Yes, I know – lots of people use those versions, but I still get comments from people telling me that because I’m not using American English, I’m “wrong”!
