Front Row at Mulberry

Kate Moss and Alexa Chung were among those seated front row at the spring show.


DRAMA QUEENS: It was the battle of the Edwardian TV stars in the front row at the Mulberry show on Tuesday morning inside Claridge’s ballroom, with cast members from “Downton Abbey” sitting just a few seats down from Rebecca Hall, who’s starring in the rival British TV drama “Parade’s End,” based on a series of Ford Madox Ford novels. “We haven’t had the definite go-ahead to start filming [a third series] but if it does go ahead it will be in February,” said Joanne Froggatt, who plays the maid Anna Bates in “Downton Abbey,” and who’s set to jet off to Los Angeles for the Emmy Awards — and hoping to come home with one.

Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, a newly brunette Lana Del Rey and Olivia Palermo were among the other front-row guests. Moss was carrying the new Mulberry bag, the Willow. “Look, the pocket comes off, it’s genius,” the model said, adding that she has a book coming out in November: “It’s the Kate book with photos from my whole career from age 14 right up to the present. Fabien Baron did it with Rizzoli.”
