Anyone looking for something edgy this Fashion Week, look no further then Versace‘s fall runway show! Donatella Versace was at her sexiest this season with animal prints, chains and studs adorning the sultry collection. Suits plunged (often patent leather for extra va-va-va-voom), dresses looked slim, and spikes covered everything! Even the red carpet-worthy gowns featured these elements, with strategic cutouts and sky-high slits ensuring Versace’s woman would heat up any event, day or night.

Fashion Week is in Milan, and InStyle’s Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary is there with it, scooping up the latest. Her favorite look from today’s lineup: Prada‘s cool-girl vibes. “The models in Miuccia Prada’s sensual, spectacular fall collection looked intentionally disheveled,” says Weber Cleary. “With wet hair, off-kilter layers, and weekend-bag sized satchels, it was as if they stepped out of the shower and had to dress quickly before running out the door.” And yet so chic!

The Prada show is always a thought-provoking and statement-making fashion powerhouse, and this season’s breathtaking lineup did not disappoint. The film noir-inspired collection was full of classic looks (think: belted ’40s-style dresses and swing coats) with a modern, slightly disheveled twist. Models looked glamorously undone, with old Hollywood movie star style and tousled, wet hair that lent an air of mystery and intrigue. The dark color palette was offset by the boldly hued accessories (including oversize bags and platform sandals). See our favorite looks in the gallery!
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!
