Dolce & Gabbana stormed Milan’s Fashion Week to make a bold statement. They arrived with a couldn’t-be-hotter Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) as well as Scarlett Johansson, who is the face of Dolce & Gabbana makeup (appearing in Marilyn Monroe-inspired ads). The mostly black and white line, which also featured Marilyn Monroe’s iconic face emblazed across dresses, was a huge hit. I loved all the black and white prints, and the garments also featured big shoulders, which are very in for fall.


Take a look at more of the line after the cut.

MilanFashion Week Spring ’09: Models Fall for Prada

Long, skinny legs in sky high heels may look good, but really the concept is a nightmare of physics.

Everyone’s talking about the wobbling and falling that went on at the Prada show in Milan on Tuesday, where the models were dropping like flies and even Jessica Stam got all wobbly:

But nobody fell as hard as poor Yulia Kharlaponova, who even stumbled after she got up:

One model even gave up at the end of the show and turned around after trying and failing to gain her balance.

Um, is it too much to ask for functional shoes?


Donatella Versace Hearts Barack Obama

Well, I’ve been looking for a way to write about Barack Obama, and now Donatella Versace gives me an in! After giving Hillary Clinton shit for wearing pants suits earlier this year, saying the first woman presidential candidate to be taken seriously should “treat femininity as an opportunity and not try to emulate masculinity in politics,” Donatella is now giving her ultimate seal of approval to Obama.

Calling the presidential hopeful the man of the moment, Donatella dedicated her Spring/Summer 09 collection to Obama. The line was previewed Saturday in Milan and consisted of lots of casual, easy-to-wear pieces including wide leg trousers and pastel hues.

Madonnas new video for Give it 2 Me premiered over the weekend. The video was directed by fashion photographer Tom Munro and in it she wears Milan-based designer Francesco Scognamiglio.

The video is hot, download it here since it has been getting pulled from youtube as soon as it goes up.

I don’t know many women who could pull off a plaid suit like this one from Moschino Cheap & Chic’s Fall 2008 show at Milan Fashion Week. Right now, I can only think of one:


But it always comes back to Ronnie Spector for me.
