SNAPSHOT: London girl does disco diva

THE SCOOP: This season, Topshop Unique captured the essence of the 1970's disco era. With a collection full of bold colour, photographic prints and a lot of sequin, the hair and makeup evoked a luxurious yet youthful feel to match the "the theatrical spirit of glam rock". Murray described the mood as "grown-up, glossy 70s", which was also brought to life by the embellished nails and big hair.

GET THE LOOK MAKEUP: For glowing 70s skin, the models were sprayed with St Tropez Spray Tan before Skin Glow in Dark was applied to the cheekbones, nose, chin, collarbones and shoulders. The eyes were left bare apart from a touch of highlighter that was used on the eyelids to bring the eyes alive. The lips were painted with Daredevil lipstick and then coated with a few thick layers of lip gloss in Cardinal Sin for a perfect, rich, bold finish.

GET THE LOOK HAIR: Hanlon created "Saturday night hair". He kept the look modern and youthful by adding in some softer, pastel coloured extensions to the volumised, 70s styles.

GET THE LOOK NAILS: Robson used rose coloured glitter on darker pink nails with a shadow tip, and then added amethyst, orange and brown stones to "bring out the richness of the clothes" and add "extra glamour" to the disco diva, London girl vibe.
