Who is Germany's most fashionable femme fatale?

Vying for the title of Germany's most fashionable femme fatale are the likes of Diane Kruger, Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer

This is a trio that is no stranger to style, having made their names on the catwalks of fashion capitals around the world.

Yet, they have used their talents to embody the image that many of today's modern woman aspire to.

Kruger is celebrated for her onscreen passion as an actress, straight-talking businesswoman Klum is also popular TV personality and Schiffer has developed her own fashion label, which she combines with her role as a UNICEF Ambassador.

The theme of confident femininity is certainly in fashion. UK retailer Marks & Spencer have used it as a key inspiration for their Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, which is now available online for customers via its German website.

The overarching mood is that of celebrating the female form with the sense to suit an individual woman’s style and mood.

It’s all about revitalising the way modern women want to dress and inspiring new directions to the season’s quintessential winter wardrobe.

Femme Fatale

Grown-up glamour can be yours to own with an elegant mix of retro-inspired fashion. Create a leading lady look that contrasts strong colours with delicate textures to softly accentuate the female form. The result brings out the complexity of the classic femme fatale that’s hidden in all of us.

We love this Textured Fit & Flare Skater Belted Dress

Modern Elegance

Sophistication isn’t always about flaunting femininity to its extreme. This is where softly androgynous design meets luxe fabrics and muted colours. Minimal tailoring with a touch of masculine glamour makes a powerful fashion statement, which radiates influence and elegance from top to toe.

We love these Slim Leg Leather and Ponte Jersey Knit Trousers

Wild Opulence

Show the world who just you are with a wanderlust fusion of fabrics and colours. The mix of tonal prints, luxe leathers and faux furs are inspired by global design and emphasis the confidence of the modern woman who knows exactly where she is going.

We love this Pure Cashmere Snow Leopard Print Longline Jumper

Dark Drama

When nothing other than pure decadence will do. Rich colours, textures, brocades and embellishments are adorned and adored. Take time to truly indulge in luxury, opulence and romance with a dramatic, glamourous evening look.

We love this All-Over Floral Lace Dress

London Calling

Bold checks and Chelsea boots are back to put their stamp on a rebellious spirit of individuality. Warm, tactile knits are a perfect addition for the winter season while sleek leathers and animal prints give a sense of strong attitude in a vivid palette of red and black.

We love this Dogtooth Sweat Top

The new collection is now available to purchase from Marks & Spencer’s French website at www.marksandspencer.de
