Initial reaction:

Silver screen sirens from the 1920s collide with a Cavalli edge. 

References: 

All screen goddesses from the first half of the 20th century - Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Clara Bow - and old school cinematography. 

Stand out looks:

The heavily embroidered slip dresses, heaving with silver embellishment, contrasted with patchwork skin trousers. 

Accessories:

Aviator ‘Bombshell’ sunglasses, antique looking rectangular silver box clutches and intricate lace-up sandals dripping with silver chains. 

Most likely to:

Flap and swing along to Baz Luhrmann's mash-up Great Gatsby soundtrack.    

Least likely to:

Go on set in Pinewood Studios. 

Atmosphere:

Hollywood Studios in its heyday with mirrored backdrop and studio lights looming over the catwalk.   

Soundtrack:

Rousing cinematic scores including Abel Korzeniowski's Clock Tick from the Single Man soundtrack, rounded off by Marilyn Manson's cover of I Put a Spell on You.

Quote of the show:

"A place where dreams become reality"

Left you wanting:

To see how much those silver screen beaded and embroidered dresses weighed.
