You were probably as bemused as we were that Boris Johnson is due to appear on the cover of Elle magazine's London Fashion Week issue (Lily LDN Allen will be on the plebian edition available at a newsagent near you). But, listen up, because Elle can be forgiven their unfortunate choice of cover star as they are revealing 25 new, commissioned artworks by designers and (um) "fashion-influencers" that will go on display from today all over London Underground to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the impending shebazzle that is London Fashion Week.

It was low-key in February but we were in recession then and looking at wintry wardrobes so there wasn't much to shout about. But you can't let a silver anniversary go unmarked and as this summer fades away it's all eyes on Spring/Summer 2010 and break out the bubbles, dahling.

WIN: In the spirit of anniversaries, you can win one of these artworks (selection above), framed and delivered to your door, like a smashing (unsmashed) birthday present. All you have to do is tell us what you're wearing now and why. Deliver an incisive and (hopefully) amusing analysis of how you picked your threads today and leave it in the comments along with an indication of which one you'd like to win. An esteemed panel of distinctly unfashionable Londonistas will choose the most deserving to win. PLUS as an extra special prize you get a t-shirt of the Antonio Berardi poster to flout around town.

Check out all 25 artworks on the walls of the Underground or go to the Elle website and watch out for our unique coverage of London Fashion Week (ie we can't get into the shows proper, but dang we'll try and get you some gossip) coming your way soon! Get the proper info from www.londonfashionweek.co.uk.
