My fashion week highlights from the city of style
Back from Milan and, hurrah, a few days off before Paris starts in earnest tomorrow. What did I learn from Italy’s fashion capital? That if it doesn’t sparkle, shine or shimmer, it just won’t be worth wearing next season.
The best celebrity spot: Freida Pinto, marieclaire.co.uk’s favourite new style crush, looking like she’s been doing the fashion week thing for years at the Extreme Beauty in Vogue party on Monday night
Most random celebrity spot: CSI’s Gary Dourdan at Roberto Cavalli
The best show (for the make-up and music): Gucci
The biggest trends: Eighties, shimmer and sparkle, print, town and country
The if-I-eat-it-again-I-might-explode starter: Caprese salad. (Just because it has the word ‘salad’ in the title, doesn’t mean eating one’s body weight in mozzarella and tomatoes won’t have an effect on your waistline, I’ve discovered.)
