It's all there in black and white; Laura Davis looks to the silver screen for inspiration.

Byline: Laura Davis

MANY screen sirens looked more fabulous in black and white films than they did after the advent of colour cinema.

Monochrome fashion never fails to make a statement and, with it being a major look for the season, your bank balance will be blanching at the number of items out there to get your hands on.

The key is to keep it simple - think Grace Kelly rather than Pierrot. Avoid top to toe black and white stripes unless you want to end up looking like a startled zebra.

Lots of eyeliner and black mascara, the smudgier the better, completes the look.
