And whereas Margot Robbie appeared to have put her Pink PP section behind her on the shut of final 12 months (recall her chocolate Schiaparelli costume on the LA premiere of Saltburn), she made a fuchsia look as Celebrity Barbie in Giorgio Armani Privé on the Golden Globes.

And for the grand finale? Lagerfeld paid tribute to a photograph of Mademoiselle on the shoulders of Ukrainian ballet star Serge Lifar by having pearl-strewn fashions carried aloft down the runway.
