Underwear as outerwear has got every designer from Galliano to Gaultier creating sizzling hot looks. With all the hard-line, futuristic looks that are flooding the catwalks at the moment, it's a relief to see lingerie as one of the headline trends. Whether it's chantilly lace camis, satin suspenders or a beautifully boned corset, there is a definite feminine and vintage feel about this look.

Galliano's inspiration for Dior came from the 1940's femme fatale, in particular Lauren Bacall. Cropped, wartime style trenches are teamed with Veronica Lake hair and vamp red lips. It's a look that has stood the test of time and still packs a punch. Satin skirts and sheer chiffon dresses float high above the knee while glittering ankle socks add extra glamour.
