The designer beloved by the likes of current style icons like the Duchess of Cambridge and Angelina Jolie looked to another icon for her latest collection: Marilyn Monroe.

1950s and 1960s influences were apparent in the silhouettes, from figure-hugging body-con wiggle dresses in bold shades of pink and blue (a nod to Marilyn's off-duty style) to palm print picnic dresses (a reference to the lush bungalowed gardens of the Beverly Hills Hotel where Marilyn lived) and full-skirted evening gowns, with a colour palette ranging from the most delicate pastels to neon brights, metallics, reds and browns. There was also a selection of dresses in red-carpet ready black.

Sumptuous fabrics - velvet, textured satin, appliquéd lace and silk chiffon - met out-of-this-world embellishments: sherbet-hued 3D flowers appliquéd all over a gown, sparkling silver embroidery on a powder blue cap-sleeved belted dress and brown jumpsuit, a sequin-encrusted cocktail-ready jacket and silk body-con styles with sexy sheer panels and plenty of glittering details.

Now the question is, which star is going to debut this collection on the red carpet first?
