Cara Delevingne - Cara Delevingne steals the show for Mulberry at LFW

Cara Delevingne opened the show for Mulberry at London Fashion Week.

The model of the moment walked the runway at London's Claridge's hotel in a series of ladylike ensembles from creative director Emma Hill's spring/summer 2014 collection, which marked the designer's last ever outing for the iconic British brand.

The 21-year-old star was watched closely by Vogue's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who had pride of place in the front row, as well as close pal Alexa Chung, actor Douglas Booth and 'Killer Joe' star Juno Temple.

However, the undisputed star of the show was Turbo the bulldog, who trotted alongside select models on a leash while kitted out in matching outfits. The adorable pooch had the crowd in fits of giggles as he appeared to give up mid-walk during his second outing down the runway.

Hill's final collection was a triumph; heavy on pastel colours and icy hues, it combined loose shapes with elegant florals, offering a fresh take on quintessential British elegance.

Mulberry, formerly known for its luxury luggage and bags, has experienced massive growth under Hill's leadership, despite a small dip in sales this year.

Speaking to The Telegraph newspaper ahead of her last ever show, Hill revealed: ''Without a catwalk show it's very hard for an accessories brand to create the kind of buzz you need these days to get international recognition. You need the catwalk in order to tell a story, and, really, to do catwalk, you need clothes.

''I've been here almost six years - the longest I've been anywhere. In that time the company has changed hugely ... But I'm not dropping off the face of the earth.

''The market is even tougher than it was five years ago because there's far more competition. But Mulberry has got something really special. So, yes, it can [become global] - and I'll enjoy watching it grow''.
