“Sexy, sensual and go crazy”, a dicky bow clad Alber Elbaz exclaims to the gaggle of models just before they saunter down the catwalk of the Lanvin A/W13 show.

Models including, Karlie Kloss and Lindsey Wixson are seen getting preened and prepped seconds before the show begins. Lashings of jewels are added and shiny brogues are slipped on before they make their grand entrance.
