DESIGNER: Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.

INSPIRATION: 1950s pin-ups and hidden fetishes.

TOP LOOKS: The outline of a panther's head stenciled onto black satin, an orchid print in emerald and amethyst, sweatshirts emblazoned with an image of Bettie Page, varsity jackets in leather, fur and latex worn with super tight pencil skirts, sheer organza layered under mini skirts and a stand out canary yellow ensemble.

ACCESSORIES: Leather caps with ears, thick rimmed cat-eye glasses and black patent killer heels.

WHO WAS THERE: Liv Tyler, Nicole Richie, Ronnie Wood, Florench Welch, Kanye West and Nicola Formichetti.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: If we're looking for an autumn/winter collection that is going to entice and captivate anyone that sets eyes on it, this is the one. The figure-hugging satin skirts, sheer fabrics, lurex bras and that somewhat ominous panther print were overtly seductive, while fluffy jumpers and floral prints added a fun, almost innocent feel to the strong, sexy, statement pieces.
