My Milan Fashion Week – Highs & Lows

I’m in Paris for the final stop on the Spring 2012 tour bus, so here are my highs and lows from Milano.

Here are my top 11 looks from the shows I attended. If Zoe Saldana’s stylist is reading, please dress her in that stunning Ferragamo dress above. I beg you. *Sings* “If I had one wish…..”

HIGHS

Top 5 Shows: Ferragamo, Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace & Alberta Ferretti

Best Production & Best for Top Models: Dolce & Gabbana

Magic Moment: Watching Anna Wintour almost knock a security guard to the floor as she made a mad dash to leave after Dolce & Gabbana. Had she been 10lbs heavier, he would have hit the deck.

Funniest Conversation:
Me: I saw Abbey Lee Kershaw and Karlie Kloss at breakfast this morning.
Bryanboy: WHAT?? They eat?
Me: Yes, of course they do.
Bryanboy: I bet they don’t eat any of that fried sh!t.

Dolce & Gabbana: I had previously requested Dolce & Gabbana, but this season I got my first invites. They not only gave me invites to both shows, but they also gave me front row seats. I was also granted access to the VIP room and backstage.

Biggest Topics of Conversation:
1. Arizona’s strange walk. (Conclusion: It looks strange because she has shorter legs than the other models.)
2. Why wasn’t Karlie Kloss in the Versace show? She would have killed it. (Conclusion: she must have been obligated to attend another show.)

Vogue Italia: They featured my Topshop jumpsuit as the Look Of The Day during Milan Fashion Week.

Karlie Kloss: Abbey Lee Kershaw (who is hero worshipped by the other models), Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss were all at my hotel. I have a mild obsession with Karlie Kloss, so I was chuffed to discover that she is really nice in person. The same can’t be said for Miss Naomi Campbell Jr.

LOWS

Taxis: Looking at my receipts, I still can’t believe how much I spent in 5 days. I could have bought myself a new pair of Louboutins, but I still would’ve needed the taxis to get around in those heels.

Anna Dello Russo: At Dolce&Gabbana I was surprised that ADR’s people were telling me that I was sitting in her seat even after I had showed them my seat assignment. Because I didn’t move – and why should I when I was in my assigned seat? – she accused me of giving her attitude. I was frankly mortified. When she found a seat, I went over to her and said that if she wanted my seat so badly that she could have it. I then went on to say that “I am here for fashion, not to fight anyone”. This appeared to calm her down as she replied, “Yes, me too”. Needless to say she now can’t look me in the eye.

Blogger Drama: Unfortunately, some bloggers rate you on the shows you get into. I don’t subscribe to that notion because different brands work for different bloggers. However, this competitiveness has led to one blogger using other bloggers’ and journalists’ names to get into shows. What she doesn’t realise is that, by bragging on her site that she attended X and Y shows, she is potentially putting X blogger’s relationship with Y brand in jeopardy, as well as putting X journalist’s job on the line if she actually gets caught. At this point I need to ask her, is bragging worth potentially getting someone fired?

      When she is on the runway…NO ONE else exists in my eyes.

    Ms Naomi Campbell Junior as in Jourdan Dunn?
    Hmm I’m not surprised but apparently her and Karlie are BFFL

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:06 #

      Not Jourdan. One of the three mentioned in the piece

      • Maddy September 29, 2011 at 13:10 #

        Joan? How did she act? D-I-V-A?

        • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:11 #

          to the 10th degree

        • B September 29, 2011 at 14:07 #

          Oh I am glad!! Abbey Lee Kershaw is one of the very few famous people I have spent time with and I thought she was adorable. AND, I can confirm: she eats pizza.
          Plus I love Karlies work and would cut my arm off to meet her.
          Boo to Joan then. Also ADR – I love that you dealt with her so graciously, yet totally owned her!

  9. A September 29, 2011 at 11:47 #

    ps Highs and Lows is one of my favourite things on your blog!!

      Its a pleasure to share my experience with you

    • Jackie September 30, 2011 at 04:21 #

      Mine as well! Love these stories that bring us just a bit closer to the experience of fashion week(s). Thank you tons for the hard work (understatement, I’m sure) and the cash you shelled out for cab fare! Goodness gracious!

      • Fashion Critic September 30, 2011 at 08:26 #

        It really is my pleasure

  10. Marvel September 29, 2011 at 12:09 #

    Love these little anecdotes. It sound like you had a blast. I havent really rated Anna Dello Russo but she has gone down in my books. On the plus side, it must have been a pretty good seat if she wanted it so Congrats!

  11. egon September 29, 2011 at 12:09 #

    is Joan Smalls Mss Campbell jr ? was she rude?

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:05 #

      ;)

  12. Maddy September 29, 2011 at 12:10 #

    *I die* (in my RZ voice) at you being a KK fan. She’s one of the few models who’s careers I follow very closely. As for her missing Versace… *sigh* … for some strange reason she doesn’t seem to be one of Donatella’s darlings or even regulars…

    Congrats on the VI feature. You’re doing it big ;-)

    Hope you have even more highs and less lows in Paris. :-)

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 22:57 #

      My eyes follow her from the second she steps onto the runway until she exits.

      She models with every inch of her body.

      She’s one of the most breath-taking creatures to walk the planet.

      Did I say my obsession was mild? Make it full blown lol

      • toni balbuena September 30, 2011 at 14:23 #

        you are awesome. she is seriously gorgeous

    to me Bottega Veneta was great, the colors were amazing, and the gowns too

  14. f4fashion September 29, 2011 at 12:16 #

    You did a great job in NY, London and Milan and I’m sure you will in Paris too. Hope you are enjoying it as much as we are :)

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:04 #

      Thank you…Day 1 and I’m already having a blast.

    Where do you stay- I thought the marni show was stunning.

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:04 #

      Enterprise Hotel.

      Its out of the way and very quiet.

  16. CreoleLady September 29, 2011 at 12:31 #

    Hmmmm, one has to wonder why ADR thought you – as opposed to someone else in the front row – MUST have been her seat, evidence to the contrary be damned. Well, so glad you were able to brush her off your shoulder (*Jay-Z move here*) and enjoy the many highs of your stay. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:03 #

      *Hmmmm, one has to wonder why ADR thought you – as opposed to someone else in the front row MUST have been her seat*

      EXACTLY

      We are most definitely on the same page

      • laura D September 29, 2011 at 20:44 #

        My guess – she didn’t recognize you on sight and therefore thought either that you were an imposter, or that you were new and therefore would be someone she could bully.

        • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 20:53 #

          Either or. I guess we will never know :)

    Thanks for these insights. Sounds as though you had quite the crazy fashion week. So pleased to hear about the royal treatment showered upon you at Dolce and thrilled to see Jil Sander in your top five collections of the week. The less said about Anna Dello Russo and ‘her people’, the better. The woman needs a major reality check – the more crazily she is feted by street style photogrohers, the more arrogant and wildly self-indulgent her behaviour gets. A little bit of humility and modesty wouldn’t go astray. You should be proud that you stood your ground and didn’t succumb to their pushiness – you had every right to be there. Anna Dello who?

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:02 #

      The most disappointing thing about it for me is the she is supposed to be the champion of bloggers considering none of us would know who she was if not for bloggers like Tommy Ton and Street Pepper.

      • Martin September 29, 2011 at 13:14 #

        She is the champion of no-one but herself if you ask me. Someone needs to inform her that she does not constitute the entire fashion galaxy, as much as she likes to think that she does. I believe that now she is at the top of the pecking order, her tolerance for anyone who isn’t ‘in her league’ (or, alternatively, wearing a piece of fruit on their head) is non-existent.

        • oksana September 30, 2011 at 19:15 #

          i think anna dello russo is a good woman but it was sad to red that, i didnt understand what happened exactly. she is very passionate about fashion she LOVES fashion. in my opinion she sees fashion as an art not just clothes to cover your naked body. this is one of the plenty things i really like-admire about her. i dont know her personally, want to meet her someday. i think she didnt want to act like that to you. i dont know why it happened.it made me kind of sad to hear the attitude thing because i really love her. plus about wearing different head pieces isnt a bad thing she is just original about that. if you look at the vogue japan november you will see an editorial with big brands’ -chanel, dior vs- headpieces. i think it is an awesome editorial; it is styled by her. it made me like that huge things and wear some.

  18. robbie September 29, 2011 at 12:53 #

    cant believe the whole anna dello russo thing, seriously she thought you were in her seat? even after you proving that you were assigned it.

    love the idea of anna rushes straight after a show and almost knocking someone down.

    glad you had a great time.

  19. MReid September 29, 2011 at 12:57 #

    Wicked, honest recap. Love it. Particularly love that you staked your claim confidently and with much class. I mean there’s a place in fashion for everyone. Alright i’m slow I know but is the “NC Jr.” You reference Ms. Smalls?

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 13:11 #

      ;) could be :D

  20. Jones19 September 29, 2011 at 13:12 #

    Wow it sounds like you had a wonderful time, I’m so jealous of all the people you got to meet. I feel for you with the Anna Dello Russo incident, hopefully it’s all good now :)

  21. mariella September 29, 2011 at 13:17 #

  23. Elaine2 September 29, 2011 at 13:27 #

    Love your post. Sounds as if Milan is very expensive to get around. The prima donnas apparently are taking over the city! :-) Good heavens, I would have a very low tolerance for that sort of behavior. Hopefully you won’t run into them in Paris…..

  24. From Russia With Love September 29, 2011 at 14:18 #

    Hello Catherine. I have some questions for u. :) Was the Ferragamo show ur favourite (u picked 2 pictures)? Why other models worship Abbey? And u said that Karlie is super nice. What about Abbey? Is she friendly? Cause I’ve just read at some famous fashion forum that she is really not.

    • From Russia With Love September 29, 2011 at 14:28 #

      BTW Karlie hasn’t been casted for a Versace show since SS10 (for 2 years now :( ) and this year I read she skipped first 2 days of Milan cause of some shooting.

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 16:39 #

      Yes Ferragamo was my favourite show.

      I don’t know why they worship Abbey, I will guess she is a nice person and that she’s respected by the other girls for all she has achieved in the industry.

      I never spoke to Abbey, but she was friendly to her peers

      • From Russia With Love September 29, 2011 at 16:58 #

        Thank u for the answers :)

  25. rebecca September 29, 2011 at 14:31 #

    If I may ask, how was this NC Jr. acting like a diva? Just plain curious ;) BTW I love your Fashion Week Highs and Lows! Will be making one for the entire fashion week in general- in terms of your favorite looks? Keep up the coverage FC, we all really appreciate it!

  26. Elina September 29, 2011 at 14:33 #

    The reason why Karlie Kloss wasn’t at Versace is because she walked and opened for Blumarine. Pity though, because Versace really needed some sensuality from Karlie’s walk.

  27. Giuliana September 29, 2011 at 14:39 #

    About Blogger Drama: who is the blogger you are talking about? I’m so so curious to know it! Is she Italian?

    I really love your blog, I read it daily with great interest!

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 15:48 #

      No, she’s from new York

      • Two spring to mind. But the Man Repeller seems too nice, so my official guess is the Glamourai :-p

        (Btw, serious question: why would that get an editor fired? Because they can’t write their show review?)

        • Fashion Critic October 1, 2011 at 08:23 #

          It’s neither of those. Both are too well regarded to have to stoop so low.

          If a PR thought that a journalist was giving her invites to another person then it’s very likely she could get fired, as it would be seen that she is not doing her job, if the PR told her superiors

  28. fromchi-town September 29, 2011 at 14:43 #

    How you dare to said something like that about Ms. Joan Smalls, she has a nice and sweet personality; most of the interviews that I had read about Joan that she has a humble personality.

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 17:17 #

      What did I say?

      At the end of the day we can all hero worship celebrities, but we don’t really know them at all.

      Reading an interview about someone is not even close to seeing their behaviour in real life.

      I loved Anna Dello Russo and you can read above how she treated me.

      With regards to Miss Naomi Campbell Jr, there were 3 separate occasions I was put off by her behaviour, but that is just my opinion.

      If you believe Ms Joan Smalls to be nice, sweet and humble I won’t take that away from you.

      • dee November 8, 2011 at 22:09 #

        Why don’t you state what those occasions were? You seem to talk about detailed experiences you had with other models, why not Ms. Smalls? You might be perceiving things differently and because you had that uncomfortable experience with the other model, you were still sour when you were around Ms Smalls. So, any small rejection or views could of triggered you to state your opinion. Maybe you do not understand people’s behaviors. You should try being in ones shoes to understand why such thing happened.
        Any press is good press. :)

        • Fashion Critic November 9, 2011 at 00:12 #

          She’s was a total bitch to the staff at the hotel. I witnessed this with my own eyes.

          She was also the only model I saw shout at photographers backstage at a show just because she didn’t have any makeup on.

          I also witnessed this with my own eyes.

          I was both disappointed and disgusted with her behaviour as a human being and as a black woman.

          You need to take her off your pedastal because she isn’t worth your time.

          Invest in a real Role model and not this overrated diva

    Great job on this! I agree with others that the Highs and Lows is becoming one of my favorite posts! It gives such an insider view of things, and I like your POV. Was wondering…did you do a Highs and Lows for London FW? I couldn’t find it, but not sure I went far enough.

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2011 at 18:09 #

      Thank you.

      No I didn’t do one for London, Milan started straight after and I had time to write it.

      In reflection not much to report.

    Ah I love your top 11 choices! Those are some of my favs too! And wow, competition between bloggers? Why have competition? When you guys are all there for fashion, who cares if you can’t get it, still seeing it in pictures is a value.

    LOVED this segemnt. I find your life so interesting, and what is the best thing is that even with all the crazy drama that the fashion weeks seem to bring you you always seem to cope with dignity, integrity, grace and most of all style, which was so completely shown by teh great jumpsuit, which I could only have dreamed to have styled so well, let alone have pulled it off with such panache and ease. Also, I so wish I knew hte identity of the blogger, though obviously I understand why you would not mention her.
    Paris seems ot have been great so far, I am so jealous, I hope you are enjoying it! Thankyou for this recap, I find your writing is even more hilarious when you talk about yourself and your experiences, have fun in paris!

    Congrats more deserved high profile invitations and front row. we should see more of you on the streetstyle websites rather than ADR. An example of why I read this blog over most the established magazines. I love these posts they so engaging and human and give real opinion and insight. Shame Joan wasn’t so nice- she always seems bubbly in interviews. Guess she forgot those days she was second tier anybody. P.s – I think you would totally rock that Ferragamo dress above.

    Hi FC,

    I just want to commend you for standing up for yourself with regards to the ADR story. A lesser person would’ve caved in to that intimidation and dare I say… bullying. I’m so glad you stood your ground and in such a graceful way.

    And… your coverage has been amazing during these fashion shows!!

    Thanks for all your work!

    Thank you so much for your fashion week posts! I live in Sydney so my favourite part of waking up every day is dragging my laptop onto bed and reading your updates.

    I Zoe Saldana did indeed wear the Ferragamo i think i would then have to kill myself because i know i could never be happier than in that moment.

    I also could totally see Scarlett Johansen wearing the yellow and red D&G dress

    I would obviously like to see myself wearing all of this too.

    Enjoy Paris!

    although i’m not a big fan of Karlie as a model, i have to say she’s really sweet in person. As for Joan small she’s a total diva (met them several times during fashion shows)

    All this blogger business and this Anna Dello Russo business – no idea who these people are and don’t give a rat’s ass. Only know that YOU are fantastic and that this is the one site that is always on it. Always honest to the point of perfection, Always update with the very latest, even though it’s like 4 AM in the UK (I live in Ohio, U.S.a. Love you Love you Love you!!!

    Darling Catherine,

    One thing I have admired long and hard about you is your honesty. I like that you are always honest. I find that is so rare these days.

    Very few call things as they see them.

    For me as a woman, I am so proud, buoyed on and encouraged by all your fashion month achievements, site and career to date with reference to http://www.redcarpetfashionawards.com

    I have watched you over time and have seen you gracefully deal with hurdles such as the Anna Dello Russo seating at Dolce & Gabbana incident.

    That humility, your high standard of work ethic and tenacity is what will leave you still at the top by time the dust settles.

    Cream always rises to the top and quality speaks for itself.

    Bravo.

    Love,

    Marian.
