Three cities down and on to Paris we go! After five days of shows and presentations in Milan it’s time to say arrivedecci — but first, a look at the trends that defined the week. Milan has always felt a little stuck in a time warp and mainly because of their classic craftsmanship and the quality of the goods they produce but this time, I am talking about Milanese’s taste in music. The music at so many shows was a straight up throw back to the 80s, from The Cure “Friday I’m in love” at Alberta Ferretti, Pat Benatar’s “We are Young” at No.21, Tiffany’s “I think we’re alone now” at Attico, to Patsy Kensit’s “I’m not scared” at Blumarine, Milan has been all about the throw back rather than the future.
For Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl LI performance, the artist called on Donatella Versace, who flew in from Italy just for the 12-minute mini concert, to create the perfect look — and she did just that. Gaga teamed the intricate piece with matching knee-high boots. Mother Monster, who opened with“God Bless America” before being lowered onto the stage in a spider-like manner, had her hair in a bouffant-style updo to take the leap off of Houston’s NRG Stadium.
Italians are known for their food, their passion, and their quality leather goods. Here are five major shoe trends we spotted this Milan Fashion Week.
Using imaginary model families for a fashion shoot is nothing new — Dolce & Gabbana has been doing it for eons — but something feels a bit off about this one.
Come Thursday, Paris Fashion Week will officially be over, along with the country-spanning marathon we know as Fashion Month. And while most of us will have to wait until September for next season’s trends to hit the racks, there are always a few lucky starlets who’re able to get their hands on some of the most coveted looks to hit the Fall 2016 runways, way before the public. From Selena Gomez looking red hot in Cushnie Et Ochs after the Grammys to Gigi Hadid getting sultry in one-day-old Versace, here 12 looks that went straight from the Fall 2016 runways to the street without skipping a beat.

There have been endless debates about the relevance of haute couture— especially in this era of fast fashion. What’s the point of making clothes that take weeks to embroider, days to assemble and only the mega rich can afford to even gawk at? Not to mention the fact that the profit on the clothes is said to be next to nothing. Yes, it seems excessive, a fashion folly for some very rich housewives.
Jenny just found herself on a new block! On Wednesday, J.Lo kicked off her Las Vegas residency for Jennifer Lopez: All I Have , making her mark on the storied strip just like fellow songstresses Cher, Mariah, and Céline. And it wouldn’t be a Lopez production without costumes that are bright, tight, and sparkly . Before slipping into a form-fitting Gabriela Cadena white dress to celebrate her opening night, the 46-year-old (what!?) took to the stage in seven next-to-naked (plus or minus some pelage and plumage) ensembles created by some of her favorite designers. Zuhair Murad was the force behind three looks. Another three, designed by Donatella Versace with the help of costume designers Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, were emblazoned with 260,000 Swarovski crystals in a wide range of colors to make crystal-mesh panels and 100 feet of jeweled chains. As if those numbers don’t subdue the surprise factor, Vogue reports that the three outfits took more than 1,400 hours and over two months to create. Just because she sang “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” doesn’t mean the same holds true for the bedazzling costumes!

When I think of pinstripes, three things come to mind: 1920s gangsters, boxy ‘80s power suits, and overall executive realness. But recently, the pinstripe has gotten a facelift. See Kendall Jenner, who was just seen out in Paris with pal Cara Delevingne, sporting a midriff-baring pinstripe jumpsuit by Alessandra Rich—the same style Chrissy Teigen was seen wearing in August. They were seen throughout the fall collections, too, as reinterpreted by mega designers like Versace and Jenner/Kardashian family favorite, Balmain.
Ciao amore! Milan Fashion Week is officially over and we are already rushing to Paris shows and appointments, but let’s take a look back at the best of Italy.

Gigi Hadid walking in the spring 2016 Versace show at Milan Fashion Week. (Photo: Instagram) Gigi Hadid might not be the typical model, but that hasn’t stopped the 20-year-old from ruling the runway this fashion week. Hadid has been breaking the waif-like model mold with her athletic and curvy figure since she made her runway debut during the fall 2014 season, but like any young woman in the spotlight, she falls victim to negative comments, especially on social media. On Monday morning Hadid took to Instagram to post a message to all of those that feel like they have something to say about her body.
While the fashion crowd flocks to New York to flaunt their best fall looks for the start of the Spring 2016 women’s collection, other fabulous types were making a splash all over the world. Elizabeth Olsen, Mary-Kate and Ashley’s little sister arrived to the premiere of Ruth and Alex at the 41st Deauville American Film Festival looking angelic in a white short sleeve gown from Calvin Klein Collection. Natalie Portman embraced her inner goddess in a flesh-tone lace one-shoulder Lanvin gown while attending the premiere of A Tale Of Love And Darkness at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival. From Victoria Beckham’s showing off her perfectly toned bod in her own label’s LBD to Irina Shayk’s white Versace power suit, here’s a look at this week’s best dressed.
When you invite Miley Cyrus to host an awards show, you’re asking for outrageous fashion. The singer certainly did not disappoint in the sartorial department — or any department, for that matter — on Sunday night at the MTV VMAs. With every outfit change (and there were a lot), she continued to surprise. The Bangerz artist opened the show in a ROYGBV jumpsuit and neon flower shrug; perpetuated her feud with Nicki Minaj in a red lip skirt, googly eye top, and visor; wore a see-through PVC dress with candy-colored dots; and so many more, it was hard to keep track of every change.
While it's a predicament not many have, the models and guests of Atelier Versace's couture show had to rush from the runway to amfAR's charity event in Paris. Lucky catwalkers including Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, and Joan Smalls just stayed in their fairy-like gowns, but others traded their delicate dresses for more sexy and party-ready looks such as Sasha Pivovarova and Anja Rubik. Bryce Dallas Howard Leads Sexy Looks at "Jurassic World" Premiere Michelle Rodriguez was biker-chic to sit front row at the Versace show, wearing black pants and a white jacket, but she ditched that vibe and went for a more classic look to attend amfAR's event in a subdued black midi-length dress and blazer.
