Milan Fashion Week | Jil Sander

High-octane glamour ruled in Milan this season and the InStyle team could barely contain their excitement at the prospect of all those fabulous red carpet gowns. And with January Jones, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson, Claudia Schiffer, George Clooney, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kylie Minogue and Naomi Campbell all putting in front row appearances, we didn’t know where to look! Here’s who we especially loved and why…

1. Dolce & Gabbana for its white lace parade

2. Jil Sander for the jolt of colour and voluminous palazzo pants

3. Prada for its baroque-meets Argentina influence and those fabulous double-decker platform brogues

4. Gucci for paying homage to the late Yves Saint Laurent with jewel tones and plunging tuxedo tops

5. Alberta Ferretti for bringing boho back

6. D&G for getting out the gardening tools

7. Bottega Veneta for making wet hair and barely-there make-up look so darn chic

8. Versace for this little tomato red number (and for putting on the after-party of the season at Donatella’s house!)

9. Matthew Williamson for giving InStyle an exclusive preview of his new handbag range for Bulgari

10. Fendi for being oh-so-pretty

Come back tomorrow for the first of the Paris Fashion Week Shows, including Dries Van Noten and Gareth Pugh.
