One Direction singer Harry Styles said he has no plans to follow his model friend Cara Delevigne onto the fashion catwalk because he struggles to walk in a straight line.

"I don't know if I can walk in a straight line that well," said Styles. "I might fumble around, so maybe not. Maybe I'll zig zag, or switch it up a little bit."

Styles, 19, was rumoured to be dating Delevigne, 21, after they were spotted together at several parties during London Fashion Week.

He turned out to watch Delivigne at the Burberry show where he was spotted sharing a joke with Sienna Miller and Paloma Faith on the front row of the show, but denied that he and Delevigne were an item.

"People talk about anything really, but we're just friends and stuff," he said. "She is a lovely girl."

Westwood said the solo performance was a metaphor for their climate change concerns; a theme which ran through the show.

Westwood said: "I just use fashion as an excuse to talk about politics. Because I'm a fashion designer, it gives me a voice, which is really good."

The show closed with an appeal to the audience to fill in a climate change postcard to send to the UN Secretary General Ban-Ki-moon.
