The obvious examples are '50s inspired Prada and Louis Vuitton with tight bodices and full skirts. Regardless of the long length, cleavage is a welcome distraction and the classic hourglass figure is miles away from the size zero ideal of the noughties. Could the inclusion of buxom beauties Lara Stone, Miranda Kerr, Catherin McNeil et al be a shift away from the straight up and down figures of the Frejas, Lilys and Anjas of the past decade? It's too soon to tell, and that's not the point of this post anyway.
