Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk looked sensational as they hit the runway for the Burberry delayed London Fashion Week show on Monday.
The British heritage brand had originally planned to showcase their SS23 line on September 17 but cancelled the show in the wake of the Queen’s death on September 8.
Despite the new date clashing with the final day of Milan Fashion Week, there were still a host of big names in attendance with Naomi Campbell also seen on the catwalk while Kanye West was among the celebrity attendees.

Bella, 25, exuded glamour as she sashayed down the catwalk in a baby blue bodysuit with a glamorous train that flared out behind her.
The eye-catching garment was adorned with lace panels and cinched in at her tiny waist while featuring a cropped overshirt and matching lace gloves.
A pair of strappy heeled sandals with a thick ankle cuff gave the 5′ 9″ beauty some extra height and perfectly finished off the striking ensemble.

Irina, 36, also looked phenomenal as she slipped into a black velvet gown that skimmed over her enviably toned physique and boasted bardot sleeves that contained sheer gloves.
Naomi’s look was more muted, with the 52-year-old model donning a nude jacket paired with a matching maxi dress and a scarf in the brand’s iconic checkered print.

Earlier this month Burberry announced they would be cancelling their runway show as a mark of respect for Queen Elizabeth II.
The brand had worked with the monarch, being awarded a Royal Warrant in 1955 and was one of Her Majesty’s preferred ‘weatherproofers’ of choice.
In a statement, Burberry said: ‘It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.
‘As a mark of respect, we have taken the decision to cancel our Spring/Summer 2023 runway show due to take place on 17 September in London. We hope to see you in the near future.’
Is that fashion now? Kanye West jetted to London for the presentation and opted for a controversial look in socks and silver flip flops as well as a leather co-ord and hoodie

London Fashion Week kicked off as planned on September 16 yet was scaled back while the country was in an official period of mourning.
As well as Burberry, fashion house Raf Simons cancelled their show as a mark of respect to the Queen.
A statement from The British Fashion Council said: ‘London Fashion Week is a business-to-business event, and an important moment for designers to show their collections at a specific moment in the fashion calendar, we recognise the work that goes into this moment.

‘Therefore, shows and presentations of collections can continue, but we are asking that designers respect the mood of the nation and period of national mourning by considering the timing of their image release.’
In 2018 the Queen made a surprise appearance at London Fashion Week where she sat in the front row next to editor-in-chief of Vogue US, Anna Wintour.
The then-91-year-old was pictured sharing a joke with the long-standing editor as the pair watched Richard Quinn’s show.
Her Majesty then presented him with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
