Versace displayed a sea of ocean like pastels and flowing chiffon. No one does the body-con dress quite like the house of Versace – and for the couture collection Dontella certainly brought back a touch of the nineties. The small waists were in abundance whether it be cinched with a belt or created with amazing patterns – Dontella is a fan of the small waist. I have to say I love these strappy heels – something a little different to the traditional heel.

It was a refined affair at the house of Dior – again like Versace we saw many a small waist. My favourite look of the collection has to be the above hot pink number. I wouldn’t say no to one of those metal waist belts either. Raf Simons has a lot to prove and it is clear that his experience at Jil Sander has had influence on this collection. I liked it but it didn’t feel very ‘Dior’ there was a distinct lack of the drama of Galliano – only time will tell if he can develop his style at Dior.
