Gigi Hadid debuted a new look at the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2022 collection runway show last week. The creative director Riccardo Tisci touted it as a return to the fashion house's roots - Britain. He told GQ the collection reflects him as much as it does the brand because he (Riccardo) is finally feeling like himself as the Chief Creative Officer after four years stirring the boat.

To really capture the British attitude, the models, including Gigi, her sister, Bella, Irina Shayk, Anok Yai, and more, styled their hair in neat low buns with Gigi leaching her brows to match the platinum shade on her head.

Tisci reimagined classic British outfits - the ballgowns and outdoor trench coats - making them in chill materials like faux-fur while retaining the grandiosity. He also reintroduced the Burberry Knight emblem from 1901 on the trench coats.

The models showed off their flowing dresses atop a round table (think Sir Arthur) dressed in a dark room with exquisite dinnerware and cutlery (think royal dinner/luncheon).

It was important for me to explore what it means to belong; how community is what truly brings meaning to the world. This collection celebrates coming together and the city in which we come together today. To me, London is a place of dreams. The collection embodies an intangible essence that is Britishness, honouring the beauty of the past while focusing on the future with thankfulness, hope and love.'
