Orlando Bloom celebrates Burberry day
Orlando Bloom was the special guest at New York’s Burberry party. Bloom was personally invited to the glamorous event at the city’s Palace Hotel rooftop by the British fashion house’s creative director Christopher Bailey. Orlando - who arrived with girlfriend Miranda Kerr - said: “I wouldn’t have missed it.”
The British star was also seen chatting to Clare Danes and Hugh Dancy at the bash, which celebrated the unveiling of a set of new Burberry lights on top of the fashion label’s new US headquarters on Madison Avenue. Hugh praised Christopher’s skills as a host, adding he would never be able to organise such a successful event. He said: “I’m a great guest, but as a host, I would suck!”
Other people at the bash included model Molly Simms, ‘Gossip Girl’ star Blake Lively and Justin Long. Last Thursday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared New York Burberry Day to celebrate the new store. Christopher said: “We are all so excited about Madison Avenue. It’s such an iconic building which we feel is the perfect new home for Burberry in America and will be another huge chapter in our rich history. “The aesthetic mirrors our new global headquarters in London and really emphasises to our American consumer the modern expression of the brand - a balance of what we have always stood for, what we represent today and where we are going.”
