Gucci epitomises glamour and this season, their jewel-tone gowns certainly delivered.

Thigh-high slits were coupled with slicked back hair and a garnet red lip to bring back the glamour of the 70s.

Touches of python, patent leather and fur upped the ante throughout the collection.

This emerald dress from Monsoon pays homage with criss-cross detailing at the neck.

It may not have the same cut-away exposure but all the more reason to opt for a pair of statement shoes.

These Perspex-heeled sandals from Topshop fit the bill nicely.

Deliciously similar to the cherry sandal by Tom Ford for YSL back in 2003, these will elevate your look to heavenly status.

The 70s look insists on an ankle- grazing, rather than floor-skimming hem length, so sky-high heels are ideal.

Strut with pride and a Studio 54 glint in your eye!
