Points to Jessica Alba for getting it seriously right. I’m especially enamoured of her shoes – rope binding, inspired by S&M but in neutral tones, is going to be huge in footwear this season, mark my words. The more military-inspired, the better; but this time, you’re not the soldiers, you’re the POWs.

Rumour has it that the diminutive Rachel Zoe has taken over Alba’s styling, which would explain why she looks so put together, but if that is the case then this look won’t seem so original, roughly two red carpet events from now, as every single Zoe client will be decked out in it. (Does this remind anyone else of the rise of Gwyneth, roughly around the same time as the release of Iron Man? There were some short skirts and high heels for her, too.)
