Before the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2010 presentation, Roberto walked over to Anna Wintour thanked her for attending his show then kissed her hand.

Not many can make Anna Wintour blush, but Roberto Cavalli did.

He then headed to the side of the runway to watch his presentation. I found this surprising, but it makes perfect sense that he view the collection as the buyers and editors do.

I was later informed via twitter (what did we do before twitter?) that Oscar de la Renta has watched his show by the side of the runway too.

Before the presentation I’d wished Cavalli would bring back some of his distinctive animal prints and he didn’t let me down.

Leopard, tiger and cheetah prints were presented, but they were toned down and blended with the collection rather than stood out.

Cavalli concentrated on rich brocade pieces which dominated this collection via coats, pants, jackets and bags.

My favourite piece was the red coat worn by Natasha Poly. It feels like a vintage piece with rich history.

Apart from the brocades we saw velvet, military chic and many boho backless floaty maxi dresses.

Nicole Richie will be first in line to wear those maxi.

This collection was boho-chic in a very modern way, and I totally love every part of the presentation.
