Fashion Week is now in Milan—and InStyle‘s Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary is right there with it! Every day she picks her favorite look from the shows, and today it was this stunner from Gucci‘s fall lineup. “Over the top? Yes. But in a good way,” says Weber Cleary. “This elaborately feathered and sequined dress by Gucci’s Frida Giannini is destined to appear on a red carpet, pronto!” Fingers crossed we’ll see it at the Oscars this Sunday!

For fall 2013, Gucci‘s Frida Giannini presented a powerful collection filled with strong, structured looks. The dark lineup included high-shine fabrics like python and patent leather in rich autumnal hues. The designer, weeks away from giving birth to her first child, offered women an array of modern daytime looks like body-conscious dresses and sleek suiting. For evening, the tone was all-out glamour, with a handful of embellished, illusion mesh gowns begging to be worn on the red carpet. The accessories matched the structure and gloss of the clothes, and included luxe top-handle bags, patent booties, and sexy ankle-strap stilettos. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
What makes a great Grammys look? Fabulous shoes! We asked the stars attending the InStyle and Warner Music Group party to reveal their designer footwear for the evening, and captured all the high heel action on video. Christina Perri described her Gucci pair as “comfortable” and “totally worth it,” Kimbra said her Miu Miu sandals made her “feel like a princess,” and Dita Von Teese pulled her sky-high Christian Louboutins straight from his Paris atelier. “They were something he was working on,” Von Teese says. “He was like, ‘Just take them,’ and the matching bag, too!” Watch the clip above to get more inside scoop on the hottest (and highest) heels of the night!

Now you see her, now you don’t! Despite having one of the most revealing outfits at the Grammy Awards, Katy Perry decided the moment she would tone down her look would be after the cameras stopped rolling. The singer changed out of her Gucci dress post-show and slipped into another mint green design with a jeweled neckline, only with a shorter cocktail-length cut and all-covered-up top. So, which look do you prefer on Katy?

Despite a memo to tone down the revealing fashion at the Grammys, Katy Perry didn’t follow the rules, showing up to the Staples Center in a mint green Gucci gown with a front keyhole opening big enough to show off every curve. ”I was just inspired by Priscilla Presley in the ’70s—big hair, closer to God, that whole thing,” she told E! host Ryan Seacrest. The dress is the fashion conversation starter of the night, and it can hop right off the red carpet into your hands. The design—which features a floral neckline packed with jade, turquoise, and light topaz crystals—is available for $5,500 on gucci.com. So, would you push “click to buy”?

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Gucci released a steamy new video for the label’s latest scent, Gucci Guilty Black, starring Evan Rachel Wood and Captain America actor Chris Evans. The film-noir inspired short has the pair heating things up in the back of an old car Sin City-style with an extra punch of desire meant to evoke the heady pink pepper notes of the women’s scent, like coriander, patchouli, and orange flower. Inspired to heat things up on your vanity? Pick up a bottle of each, priced at $90 for the women’s and $80 for the men’s, at gucci.com.
