Milan Fashion Week is well under way, and designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, are the city’s biggest sartorial stars. Italy’s darlings are never shy about accessorizing, and their catwalk jewels almost shined brighter than the celebrity crowd at their Fall Ready-to-Wear show. The front row was littered with Hollywood’s A List, from D & G muse, Scarlett Johansson – the face of their new makeup line – to current ‘it’ girl, Freida Pinto, to new mom Naomi Watts. Kate Hudson and brother Wyatt rubbed elbows with super models Claudia Schiffer and Eva Herzigova. And a stunning Eva Mendes was also on-hand to show support.
But it was the jaw-dropping fashion that took center stage, as sumptuous fabrics, daring prints and the trend du jour – big puffy Minnie Mouse-ear sleeves ruled the day. Hot pink, black & white, and midnight blue rounded out the Dolce & Gabbana color wheel; and statement necklaces, chunky rings, and watch-faced jewels accented the luxurious line.
We’ve seen designers do a lot with red stones and turquoise in their Fall Ready-to-Wear collections, and the trends also turned up on the Milan runways this week. And, of course, yellow gold and layered chains remain a runway staple for 2009. Jewelry.com has a treasure trove of trendy fashion jewels that would make Dolce & Gabbana proud – from red glass pendants to turquoise statement necklaces to yellow gold coin jewels. And you don’t have to have a supermodel salary to snatch them! Grab some for yourselves while the catwalks are still crawling!
