The evening began with guests entering a specially created English garden through wrought iron Georgian gates, inspired by the Royal Parks of London. The landscaped garden, filled with British lavender and roses, provided the perfect setting to watch the sun set over the Hollywood Hills.

The journey continued as guests took their seats in the custom-built show space, to watch the brand’s runway show featuring the Burberry family of models including Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Sam Rollinson, Charlotte Wiggins, Malaika Firth, Ella Richards, Amber Anderson, George Barnett and George Le Page, showcasing the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 womens and mens collections.

The show closed with a collection of exclusive eveningwear, featuring floor-length tulle dresses with cut-out waistcoats and silk thread embroidery for women and slim-fit velvet tuxedos with grosgrain details for men.

The finale featured a surprise runway appearance from British film and television star James Corden.

British Burberry music acts George Ezra, Tom Odell, Clare Maguire and Benjamin Clementine flew in from London to perform live tracks during the show.

The First Battalion Grenadier Guards continued their performance outside while giant digital projections of the guards and the British and American flags illuminated the façade of the Observatory.

It’s officially true: the Brits do rule.
