(NEW YORK) It's time to flee to Milan, loves, but not without looking back on the five fash-packed days of London Fashion Week. From ponytails to bulldogs, behold the best moments of London's week of chic! EMILY GYBEN

1. Matthew (Williamson) and Jude (Law) at Twenty8Twelve: If there's one thing we always love, it's a designer going to another designer's show (bonus points if the former's show hasn't happened yet--and yes, Phillip Lim, we're talking to vous, too). In London, the prize went to Matthew Williamson, who sat next to none other than Sienna's beau at Twenty8Twelve. Two boys we adore in one place?

2. Lindsey Wixson at Jonathan Saunders: That bouncy ponytail! That retro, red-lacquered pout! That face! Not to mention the adorably throwback orange halter/pale green pencil skirt combo she was sporting. It's the most innocent bombshell we've ever seen.

3. Alex Shulman, the anti-diva: She's so blessedly low-maintenance, and we can't get enough. No bodyguards, no holding up shows, no dashing out before the designer takes a bow...Alexandra Shulman may be the editor of Vogue, but she's got less 'tude than much of the second and third row set.

4. Thomas Tait in the middle of nowhere:
One of the more wonderful things about London Fashion Week is the fact that you never know where the next Chris Kane will pop up. Thomas Tait just graduated from CSM and wasn't even on the official schedule, showing for the very first time in a small gallery in a quiet Hackney neighborhood. Expect this not to be the case for long. Thomas, we knew you when!

5. The Christopher Kane finale. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we love, love the finale song--"Tell Him" by The Exciters--but seeing the full lineup (each girl had only one look) of neon-clad models march out was simply joyous.

6. Burberry's super-studded jackets.
Yes, we thought studs were over, too--but what Chris Bailey says goes. It's just like that treasure you've scoured Trash & Vaudeville for but have never found--only turned up about a thousand notches. Expect it to be as ubiquitous as those Balmain shoulders of Spring 2009--both editorially and on the shoulders of every street-style muse.

7. The Mulberry Bulldog
. Mulberry's Spring 2011 collection was full of adorable confections, but the show-stealer was clearly the Mulberry jacket-clad bulldog that walked alongside a model in the brand's presentation. Yes, a canine took the runway last season, too (in New York and London!), but who can argue with a puppy?
