And it was a certainly a close contest! Emma dazzled in a gorgeous, gold zip-fronted Burberry minidress with a black waist belt and matching power platforms.
The Harry Potter star – and face of Burberry – looked flawless with a clear-as-crystal complexion and smouldering copper eyeshadow.
Victoria rocked up in a stunning boat-neck LBD with a full, flared skirt and towering patent pumps.
The star teamed her look with an edgier-than-usual, sexy-messy updo and charcoal eyes.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler and Mary-Kate Olsen also added A-list status to the front row, while Frieda Pinto – who arrived with her Slumdog Millionaire beau Dev Patel – wowed in a lemon-yellow Burberry folded minidress, which she sexed up with red animal-print heels.
Big names from the fashion world also lit up the front row, including Matthew Williamson, photographer Mario Testino, Twiggy and Erin O’Connor. The stars were out to support Burberry's return to the London catwalks, after an eight-year absence, to celebrate 25 years of London Fashion Week.
But it was surely Emma and Victoria's night.
