The Topshop Unique Show is one of London Fashion Week’s MAJOR highlights. Suuuuuure the clothes are the real stars, setting the tone for what we’ll all be wearing come summer next year, but let’s face it, the front row is a celebfest and even the stoniest, sunglass-wearing fashionistas can’t help but be mildly titillated by the starpower in the room. Here’s what to look forward to.
Watch the show live at 2pm on Sunday 20 September

1. Cara Cara Cara
Back in February she was spotted canoodling (read, ‘sitting next to’) Kendall Jenner on the front row. WHO will be her ‘gal pal’ today?… We’re rooting for her girlfriend St Vincent, because #relationshipgoals . But TBH she might not even be there at all, seeing as she's like an acress now, not a model. Watch this space.
2. Surprise celeb moments
It wouldn’t be a Topshop show if there wasn’t without at least one OMG moment on the frow – will Harry Styles be making an appearance? Will Zayn Malik, the fashion pack’s new favourite One Directioner gone rogue be dropping by with his alleged new squeeze, Burberry model Neelam Gill? And more to the point, WHAT COLOUR WILL HIS HAIR BE? We are feeling swoony at the very thought of him – somebody pass the Popchips.
3. Bella Hadid
What’s better than one gorgeous celeb supermodel of the moment? TWO gorgeous celeb supermodel of the moments OBVIOUSLY. Bella Hadid is allegedly in town and heading to Toppers… if her sister Gigi, the new face of the brand, is there too we might actually explode.
4. The show inspo sounds SO GOOD
Geoffrey Finch, Topshop’s Creative Design Consultant has let slip a few secrets about the inspiration behind the SS16 collection. He says: ‘Martin Parr’s ‘British Photography in the Thatcher Years’ got us thinking about new spins on classics while some Bruce Weber images got us into mood of romantic heroicism.’ He also said he spent ‘quite a bit of time studying Stella Tennant, and a shot of Princesses Diana and Anne chuckling’…. Intriguing!
5. Jeremy Corbyn waz ‘ere
Who knew the most coveted ticket in town today is at the same venue in which the socks-and-sandal-wearing Jezzer was anointed leader of the Labour Party just a few weeks ago. We wonder if he’ll be back to watch this flagrant display of consumerism?
