Supermodels Kate Moss (attending with boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck), Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Winnie Harlow and Cara Delevingne were all spotted supporting creative director Kim Jones, while actresses Christina Ricci, Gwendoline Christie and Demi Moore made up the rest of the very A-list front bench. Other guests included Munroe Bergdorf, who is among those topping the front row sightings leaderboard this fashion month.
Before the evening’s antics, an elegant daytime affair came by way of Alberta Ferretti’s catwalk, staged in a castle. Among the guests were Ed Westwick, Tamara Kalinic and Anna Wintour, while on the runway Irina Shayk turned heads.
At 9pm, came Diesel’s mega-show — eight hours of runway and raving. Despite the pouring rain, almost all of the 7,000 invited showed up. Lucky winners of creative director Glenn Martens’ raffle accounted for 6,000 of the guests, while Gen-Z favourites made up many of the famous faces: Jaden Smith, Tommy Cash, and Charlie XCX, as well as Italian footballer Moise Kean, all turned up ready to rave in the rain.
Day two was a red carpet-worthy affair, as film stars (with newfound free time, due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes) joined fashion devotees at Prada. Scarlett Johansson, Emma Watson, Benedict Cumberbatch and director Wes Anderson made for new faces on this season’s frow circuit. Kylie Jenner also made a surprise appearance; sadly Timothée Chalamet was not in tow, but she enjoyed a laugh with her seat-mate Rosalía. Later, American rapper Saint Jhn and actress-turned-beauty entrepreneur Heart Evangelista were spotted in the audience at Moschino’s 40th anniversary showcase.
There was much anticaption for the Gucci show on Friday, and new creative director Sabato de Sarno drew a crowd of Hollywood favourites. Paul Mescal, Julia Garner and Jessica Chastain were pictured wearing matching sunglasses, while Ryan Gosling and Julia Roberts arrived together. Rumoured couple Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny also garnered plenty of attention.
Saturday’s first flurry of celebrities emerged for Dolce & Gabbana, among them were Kylie Jenner (albeit arumoured 52 minutes late), actresses Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Halle Bailey, and Maya Jama, the Love Island presenter who was named a face of the brand earlier this year.
Rounding off a starry season was Bottega Ventea, on Saturday, who drew music industry sensations Erykah Badu and Peggy Gou, and The White Lotus season two cast members Will Sharpe and Megahnn Fahy, as well as Giorgio Armani, on Sunday, who made sure a week of Italian fashion went out with a bang for his guests including Lily Allen and Cate Blanchett.
