This week we are getting in touch with our inner feline with an outfit that is sure to make you roar. 
For Pre-Fall '18, Pierpaolo Piccioli pays homage to Valentino's heritage - the pattern on this mini dress is a reference to the brand's original 1968 design. Made in Italy from silk-crepe, it has ties at the high neck and is printed with snarling tigers - one of the cats even has enticing bead-embellished eyes. Next we added a pair of sandals that lend an instant burst of sexiness to the feet. One of Alexandre Birman's most popular styles, these 'Clarita' sandals see soft black suede juxtaposed with earthy-toned canvas for a contemporary finish. The slender stiletto design is bolstered by self-tie ankle straps, complemented by bow trims at the toe. For our bag we wanted a piece that can easily transition from day to night. Balenciaga's 'Classic City' tote is a subtle way to tap into this season's logomania trend. Crafted from textured-leather, this iconic design has a detachable shoulder strap that's detailed simply with the house's moniker. To bring out the beautiful pops of emerald and topaz in our tiger's eyes we reached for a pair of earrings that offer an extra edge to our ensemble. This geometric pair by Ri Noor features diamonds and  emeralds accented by unique settings crafted of 14k and 18k gold. Polishing things off with a touch of sparkle through our makeup, Chantecaille's mermaid eye color is an innovative high shine, long-wear formula that can be worn wet or dry. And can also be used as an eye shadow or eyeliner. Infused with a silk tree extract, the luxurious texture creates a lasting metallic sheen that lends a youthful appearance to the eye area. Whether you wear this look to work or an evening out not only will you feel like the 'Eye of The Tiger', but also that all eyes are on you.
