Milan Fashion Week kicked off with Gucci, where show-goers were seated in a dark room with strobing lights and treated to a collection
choc-full of sparkly dresses, over-the-top embellishments, and, of course, models clad in the latest update of the must-have Gucci logo top. Meanwhile, fashion royalty and young scions are also making their mark in the Italian capital. Kaia Gerber opened Fendi’s spring show in a nipped-waist stripe skirt suit, which will surely make mom Cindy Crawford proud. And when it comes to the fashion itself, feminine dresses, like those shown at No. 21 and Fausto Puglisi, were also a hit, as were Alberta Ferretti’s sexy black swimsuits, though you might need some supermodel genes to wear those. Check out all of the best looks from Milan Fashion Week, here.
