As always Olivia Palermo follows the biggest fashion trends. We spotted her wearing her monogrammed Burberry Prorsum poncho during a photoshoot in New York back in July. She combined it with checked print shirt, brown shorts and trendy Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots and accessorized with Westward Leaning sunglasses and Carolina Herrera bag. Great combination!






British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley donned another great combination with Burberry blanket cape while visiting Sydney. The 27-year-old showed off her statuesque figure by styling her cape with skinny denim jeans, Christian Louboutin suede boots and a trendy fedora hat.
