We passed the halfway mark of Milan Fashion Week and it was time for the Roberto Cavalli show.
I had a special outfit for this one, a nude color tutu skirt and body made by my friend Elen Lukash. I loved this outfit so much that I decided to name it: The Nude Swan.
I met my Milan team Keith and Brook at the Duomo and we started walking to the military school where the Cavalli show took place, to cover the backstage and then the show.
Backstaging: The make-up by Petros Petrohilos for Mac was all about sexy and strong eyes, with a wet texture of glossy and sparkly on top, and dark and messy mascara on the bottom, mixing metallic grey and black while the lips stayed natural. The inspiration was grungy rock and roll party girl.
I saw: The catwalk was set up in a dark room with a glossy floor and crystal white chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
The theme for the collection was China which wasn’t so obvious when the models walked out onto the catwalk showing a large range of texture like lace ,chiffon, sequins and delicate embroidery. However what exposed the eastern influence was the oriental Chinese floral prints with contrasting black, mustard and gold tones on floor length dresses, silk blouses and fur elements.
I loved: The yellowish wide leg jumpsuit tied together with large statement black belts with a large golden buckle.
A quick bite and an outfit change before the Jil Sander Show.
I saw: A minimalist collection as you would expect to see from Rodolfo Paglialunga, with clean lines and simple shapes of suits, coats and tunics layered over trousers, but the change came with a statement of bright and bold colors that added a candy twist to the neutral tones of the collection.
I loved: The orange boots, the black and white maxi dress, the colorful fur jacket and… I love Rodolfo!
