Giorgio Armani gave couture a sophisticated shake up during his Prive show in Paris Monday night.
The Italian designer showed a more wearable side to fashion's stereotypically over the top art with tailored skirt suits and tight fitting bodices.
Armani also showed off the new must-have 'bulb' skirt- which is tight around the curve of the hip with gathered ruffles at the knee giving e a hint of Paris' Can-can legacy.
Shoes were high with ankle breakingly thin heels, make up dark and smoky and hair in slicked back curls to complete the feminine-power look.
The Prive show was held at Palais du Chaillot by the Eiffel Tower and attracted an A-list audience including actress Hilary Swank, burlesque star Dita Von Teese and screen idol Sophia Loren.
