Get cape, wear cape! Diana Vickers leads the style pack in tweed as London Fashion Week kicks off with Zoe Jordan’s show

London Fashion Week might be about the collections on the catwalk but it’s the styles on the front rows that really attract attention.

And Diana Vickers stood out from the rest on Friday as LFW kicked off with Zoe Jordan’s a/w 2013 show at Somerset House, wearing one of the designer’s tweed capes and matching skirts.

The former X Factor star proved her style credentials in the fashion-forward look, as she was joined on the front row by a host of London’s most trend-conscious stars.

The 21-year-old, who has come a long way in the style stakes since her appearance on the talent show in 2008, matched the designer’s tweed cape and skirt with a long-sleeved, maroon top.

Keeping her legs bare, despite the cold weather, the young singer added a pair of towering, black ankle boots and wore a casual but stylish black shoulder bag.

She wore her long blonde hair unstyled and tousled and added minimal make up in a bid to keep all of the focus on her stand-out outfit.

Amy Winehouse’s goddaughter Dionne Bromfield opted for a green metallic top, matched with skinny jeans and stilettos and posed for photos before taking her place on the front row.

Flame-haired model Olivia Inge certainly made sure that she stood out as she wore a loose-fitting bright orange top and red jacket.
