Christian Lacroix

The look:
For opulence and credit crunch defeating glamour, there is no better man than Christian Lacroix. A whimsical and colourful parade of short tiered or puffball dresses and mannish tailoring was followed by dramatic, heavily embellished jackets and long gowns.

Key pieces:
Military details were rife. A short velvet jacket with brass buttons and wide leg silk trousers was pure tin solider, and a loose and pleated three-piece suit referenced menswear. High octane red carpet options included an ombre fuchsia column with a giant ruffle to the shoulder, a metallic gold dress that was crushed to the model’s body and a block striped trapeze dress inspired by African tribal wear.
