We combine UV-optical photometry of early-type galaxies with galaxy formation models in the standard LCDM framework, to study their evolution over the last eight billion years. We demonstrate that LCDM comfortably reproduces the optical properties of early-type galaxies and, contrary to traditional beliefs, such optical characteristics are not conclusive proof that early-types form 'monolithily' in a short efficient burst at high redshift followed by passive ageing.
