Gucci is synonymous with glamour. The label's signature style, bodycon dresses, are enjoying the limelight due to fashion's current love affair with form-fitting shapes.

Robot-inspired detailing has been working its way up the trend ladder for a few seasons. Who could forget Balenciaga's glistening gold metal leggings from Spring / Summer 2007 which catapulted the android look into a whole new realm? Sparkling, metal hardware is the embellishment of choice. Graphic lines, cut-out detailing and sharp silhouettes add oomph to the futuristic style.

Gucci's use of steely colour, from ice white to gunmetal grey and dark graphite, gives a flawlessly chic feel to the collection, while the super slick side-parted hair, clean make-up and killer heels finish the look with a razor-sharp edge.
