The shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal in our eyes went a little Ziggy Stardust and mixed it with a little comic book vixen attitude.

At Charlotte Olympia we saw bold lip color and cat eyes, and glitter on the eyelids to match outfits fitted with matching platforms, glitter and velvet.

 The show took place at London’s Roundhouse for a show that was inspired by Forties science fiction film noir, vintage posters and comic books.

Models, clad in black dresses, coats and bodysuits that were made for the event but will not be sold, moved in a circle around the audience. The diplay showed off sparkly shoes, bags, eyewear and jewelry in.  The catwalk was raised so that shoes and bags were at eye level to emphasis what the designer is known for, the accessories.

The footwear was a distinctive Charlotte Olympia big, bold and sexy that came  in sparkly platforms, some pink and adorned with chunks of Lucite.  Others covered in supernova star cut outs; high-heeled glittery ankle boots that could have been swiped from Ziggy Stardust’s shoe rack. As well as chunky platform sandals done in a leopard print or crushed velvet.

The makeup team was done by MAC Cosmetics of course.  Who relayed her mood on the faces of they pretty young things that graced the catwalk. They went for a total pin-up look bouncy girls in the hair. A clean face with a very distinct eyebrow, a painted on cat eye, glitter eye shadow and  strong lip color.
