What our Editor-in-Chief saw and heard at the shows in Milan

TwitPics from Milan TwitPics from Milan TwitPics from Milan

1.  Alek Wek, tall and impossibly gorgeous, just showed up at Moschino #mfw

2. 
Hello early 90s at Moschino: bright mini suits w/ gold buttons, backpacks, doorknocker earrings, Western hats, beehives & bows. #mfw

3. 
A handbag fashion show at Furla #mfw where the look is neon reversible totes, colourful mock crocs

4. 
Heading to Etro where seasoned editors arm wrestle each other to swipe the patterned seat pillows

5. 
Lady Paisley was the theme at Etro & it popped up on all from sleek dresses to velvet gowns #mfw

6. 
And in a print-oriented company, I most prefer Etro’s all black fitted cropped jacket heavily embellished with black braid trim #mfw
Mad panic of a day as traffic builds and shows get pushed later. Heading to Just Cavalli where I’m expecting animal patterns of course #mfw

7. 
Fall will be a great season to get waisted. Newest designs are wide and cinched high. Etro’s came with attached peplums #mfw

8. 
Super sexy & young at Just Cavalli. Zebra, leopard, houndstooth & floral patterns all at once. What?! You were expecting minimalism? #mfw

9. 
Lace from Stella McCartney’s evening line. Such a great designer & she’s a mother of four under 6

10. 
Excited for tonight’s Versace show which will be held in the courtyard at Via Gesu. Saw Prince, Duran Duran & supermodels there in the 90s

11. 
Big Bird neon curly fur coats & matching bags over white slick jumpsuits and silver Moonboots at Blumarine. Not Armani that’s for sure

12. 
Whoosh silver ski Barbie to distressed leopard print denim to sleek LBDs to metallic croco trenches. An exhausting ride at Blumarine #mfw

13. 
After this Pussycat Dolls Revue, I am even more grateful for the return of Jil Sander.

14. 
Versace’s show is the courtyard under the stars (ok so there’s a plastic tent in the middle) amidst the trees. Magical #mfw

15. 
Alek Wek and Andrej Pejic are in the crowd at Versace. Like that #mfw is a celebrity-free zone. No hassle.

16. 
Girl with a Dragon Tattoo feel in beauty at Versace. Models glaring in blunt cut bangs, black lined eyes, bleached brows & pale lips
