  • Scarlett Johansson, Kate Hudson and Freida Pinto bring star power to Milan

    After a surprising lack of A-list faces in Milan, the stars finally arrived yesterday, all in the name of Dolce & Gabbana.

    Scarlett Johansson, the face of the Italian fashionista’s new make-up range, led the pack at the designer’s autumn/winter ’09 catwalk show, in a demure metallic gown, nipped at the waist for her favoured Fifties screen siren style.

    Stepping into the fashion limelight, Frieda Pinto took in the first front row, but looked like a seasoned pro as she posed for the paps in a cream tunic gown.

    And it was just Hollywood providing the glamour. Supermodels Claudia Schiffer and Eva Herzigova reminded everyone why they still outshine their younger contemporaries, wowing in a black skirt suit, and fitted ruby red gown respectively.

    Not content with hosting the starriest show of the week, D&G continued the festivities, holding a party for their nearest and dearest.

    With just enough time to change into some slinkier, Johansson upped the ante, showing off her famous curves in a figure hugging animal print gown, and a ruby red pout.

    Glittering in a gold sequin mini and cropped jacket, Kate Hudson added to the glamazon line-up, while Naomi Watts oozed sophistication a black tux.

    Like a lesson in red carpet dressing, the supers were back as well, with Herzigova rocking a shimmering white sheath and Schiffer slinky in a silver and black stripe shift dress. Elegant, yet supremely sexy, they ensured all eyes were on them.

    Meanwhile, letting the side down was Peaches Geldof. Pulling her signature nonchalant gloomy expression, the socialite looked simply scruffy next to the groomed glitterati, with lank locks and mismatched attire. If you’re going to try and play with the A-list Peaches, at least buy a hairbrush!
