Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris have all wrapped (the last show walked Wednesday!)—and if we could give an award to the Most Popular Front Row Attendee, no doubt, Olivia Palermo would win. The effortlessly-stylish 27-year-old jetted around the world on a fashion adventure for the past month, visiting over 20 runway shows, and she dressed impeccably for each one. “I’m just constantly on the go,” Palermo told InStyle.com in her home base, New York. And, of course, she packed an insanely-covetable wardrobe, which is exactly why we rounded up all of her looks right here, in one easy place.

Milan Fashion Week has officially come to a close, which means that our Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary has picked her last favorite look from the Italian lineup. Her final choice: Giorgio Armani‘s pretty pantsuit. “This pant suit is essential Armani: menswear-inspired, but softened by malleable fabrics and muted pastels,” says Weber Cleary. “Post-modern power dressing—it’s lovely!” Click through to see more of Cindy’s top picks, and keep checking back—she’s headed to Paris next!
Milan Fashion Week had some our favorite celebrities sitting front row at the shows—including Princess Charlene and Janet Jackson (with beau Wissam al Mana), both taking in the scene at Giorgio Armani. Click through to see who else we spotted living la dolce vita this week.
Our editors flew to Italy to see the latest fashions for fall for Milan Fashion Week, and we have your behind-the-scenes look at the fashion, makeup, celebrities, and more that caught our eye. Salma Hayek (and her fashion businessman husband Francois-Henri Pinault) took in Gucci, the Dolce & Gabbana models rocked Sicilian princess-inspired up-dos, Ferragamo shared this early sketch before looks hit the runway, and Giorgio Armani debuted red carpet looks to guest of honor, Princess Charlene.

In stark contrast to the curvaceous, sparkling numbers Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts wore to Sunday’s Oscars, Giorgio Armani sent a decidedly more masculine collection down the runway. Blending menswear elements with feminine frills, the mostly black and blue lineup balanced suspenders and suiting with ruffles, pleats, and bows. The eveningwear, which ranged from plunging silk columns to rich velvet gowns and even sequined jumpsuits, definitely gave us something to look forward to at next year’s awards.

The Oscars may have dominated the air waves this weekend, but that doesn’t mean we forgot Milan Fashion Week! InStyle‘s Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary spent the whole weekend in Italy at the shows, and she sent us her favorite look from each day, starting with Versace (center). “Donatella went wild with her neo-punk theme for fall 2013, but rock stars and sex symbols alike will fight over this fierce vinyl look,” Weber declared. We can see it! Click through to see her favorite pieces at Bottega Veneta and Dolce & Gabbana, and check back tomorrow for more!
Inspired by the mosaics of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s latest collection will have many preaching the gospel of Dolce & Gabbana come fall. Presenting a fittingly ornate collection, the duo sent their models down the runway adorned in golden crowns and jeweled rosaries. The clothing matched the grandeur of the accessories and ranged from muted fresco prints to a cardinal red finale. Among the referential designs and signature Dolce & Gabbana peek-a-boo lace sheaths was ladylike suiting that could rival any woman’s Sunday best. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
Not only is tonight the biggest night of the year for fashion in Hollywood, it’s also nearing the end of the fall 2013 runway shows at Milan Fashion Week. Prada just showed a gorgeous film-noir inspired collection (shown, right) that took our breath away—appropriate, since we’re also fawning over the best Oscars gowns of all time, which are equally breathtaking. (Who could forget Uma Thurman’s classic but stunning lilac Prada gown at the 1995 Academy Awards, when she was nominated for her role in Pulp Fiction?) Today, Italian designers Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and Salvatore Ferragamo will also show in Milan, so keep an eye out for extra-special pieces that skipped the runway when the red carpet starts tonight on ABC at 7/6c. Vote below: which Italian designer do you want to see on the red carpet tonight?
