Their Living Poster Ball takes the lead from the promotional artwork of hit films Mata Hari, Gilda, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight and The Duchess.

Among the students given a new look will be Luisa Bates, aged 18, taking on the guise of Hollywood movie star Greta Garbo in her Mata Hari role.
