Being a rock star - literally! - couldn't be more stylish. Sumptuous jewel tones were all over the A/W11 catwalks, with the most precious of gems inspiring the most dazzling looks of the season.

Paraded down the runways of virtually every major designer on the planet - at Gucci, Pucci, Lanvin, Haider Ackermann, Jonathan Saunders, Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Versace and more - no precious stone was left unturned.

Amethyst, emerald, citrine, garnet, ruby and sapphire shades make up autumn's essential colour palette and there's a ravishing rock that rolls for every skin tone. Dripping with decadence and wearable day or night, jewel tones are effortlessly right.
