16Arlington’s latest collection was party girl personified, so who better to take her place on the FROW at the show than woman of the hour Simone Ashley? The Bridgerton star, who has formed a close relationship with the brand, opted for some sartorial sass as she graced the scene in checks.

Effortlessly fusing office-chic with sixties flair, the 27-year-old slipped into a charcoal grey, chequered number featuring a high neckline, barely-there sleeves and a mini silhouette. She completed her aesthetic by stepping out in some black leather knee-high boots and braced the February chill in a splendid ebony ostrich feather coat.

Simone was joined at the show by an array of models, influencers and actors. Jourdan Dunne and Mia Regan and gathered to marvel at Marco Capaldo’s designs, in addition to industry veterans such as Edward Enninful and Sarah Harris.

Simone has been a longtime-champion of 16Arlington and lit up the red carpet at the Fashion Awards last September, draped in diamante courtesy of the label. The star mesmerized in a lilac, glitter-clad number by cult-brand which showed off a Grace Jones-esque hood and long sleeves.
