Mulberry's Fantastic Fox

Mulberry's Fantastic Fox

Bond Girl Gemma Arterton Is Hot for Culottes

Kirsten Dunst flew into London for the Mulberry show and party, both at Claridge's, but she also let us in on her favorite London spots: "I hit the East End today—Bistrotheque for a bite, then straight to Vintage Emporium; they have amazing pieces and it's always at the top of my list when I'm here." Mulberry, of course, was also on her mind: "I just loved the pink coat-dress—gotta have it"

But Dunst wasn't the only star to turn up for the show and party. Included in the mix were Dree Hemingway, Clémence Poésy, Juliette Lewis, Róisín Murphy, Amber LeBon, and Tyrone Wood and his mom, Jo, who hung close to Janice Dickinson ("In town, baby, to do Britain's Next Top Model, and to rock your world," she told Style.com).

In keeping with the collection's Fantastic Mr. Fox theme, Mulberry transformed the ballroom at Claridge's into the English countryside in autumn: trees full of colorful silk birds, gigantic inflated toadstools, and waiters dressed up as fox hunters, serving fresh country fare. Then there was Dan Williams on the decks, and the way guests were tearing up the floor, you wondered if anyone was going to make the morning shows.

For Gemma Arterton (on her best behavior, as she had to get up early to start filming Hansel and Gretel opposite Jeremy Renner), it was a family affair: "My husband is here, and I brought my mom to the show. It was her first ever, and she thought the sparkly jacket was rather bling. I, for one, loved the high-waisted culottes. I know, I know, high waists, but they actually suit my body." To which we asked the Bond girl, what wouldn't suit that body?
