The fifties revival is one of the strongest looks for winter 2010. While some designers, such as Isabel Marant, went for a rockabilly-inspired take on the era, it was Louis Vuitton's ultra-feminine interpretation that had fashion editors weak at the knees.

Head-designer Marc Jacobs launched look after look of curvaceous hip-hugging dresses, dirndl skirts and cleavage-flaunting bustier tops.

The collection was one long love letter to women consisting of princess-style, boucle wool coats and the resurgence of leather '50s- style handbags. You can look like a lady for less in M&S's printed skirt, toned down with a chunky fisherman style Aran knit from Topshop.
