Emma Corrin led the way on Miu Miu’s autumn/winter 2023 catwalk and then followed it up off-catwalk at the Venice Film Festival as they paired a pair with a button-up cardigan and bookish brogues.

Kendall Jenner has regularly forgot her trousers in Bottega Veneta teamed with tights and a navy crew-neck jumper and Jodie Turner-Smith has even got her knickers in a twist with a heightened sense of glamour on the red carpet.
