Milan Fashion Week 2016: I’m back!

Milan Fashion Week 2016. Hello beauties!! How are you? I’m back from Milan Fashion Week.. And what an intense week it was. Really, really, really intense! Milan is beautiful, but I’m also happy to be back in Florence for a few days before heading back to the RAI studios next week… Just the time I need to recharge and leave again! Yes, every time I go to Milan, especially during Milan Fashion Week, it’s always at an accelerated rhythm: running from here to there to there, trying to make every hour in the day as productive as possible (YES, I am still convinced that by waking up at the crack of dawn and going to bed really late I’ll be able to increase the amount of hours in a day.. But there are still 24, dear Irene, ehehe!).
Many members of if not all of my professional acquaintances have asked me: “Why don’t you move to Milan like many of your colleagues?”. The truth is that I’m really happy in my city, in my Florence: you all know how deep my ties to my hometown are. I can’t deny that, every time I’m in Milan, the focus of my activities shifts to filming at RAI studios and fashion events, and I’m aware that the possibilities this city has to offer are incredible and unequalled. Although I’m aware of all this, I think I found the right balance for me. A balance made up of a team that works in Milan (and that represents “me” in the city 365 days a year), of trains and cars, of hotels that are like second homes and beautiful apartments. This balance is perfect for me!


Milan Fashion Week 2016: my travel diary and the apartment I stayed in!

During this edition of Fashion Week I spent 7 days in Milan, choosing this time to stay in an apartment. A huge apartment, the one you’ll see in today’s pictures and that also doubled as a set for the pictures of some of the looks I wore during Milan Fashion Week.. Including this pyjama (from H&M!) that reminds me that I sleep too little and work a little too much, ehehe!!  The super cool apartment I found once again via (yes, after our incredible experience in Haute-Savoie this summer I definitely needed to try the Homeaway service again!) you can find it HERE, at THIS LINK, if you’re curious (you’ll find the price here as well!). We needed the apartment to be huge to host part of our team. We were a total of 5 in this house.. And I can confidently say that we could have hosted even more people! A giant living area, a colourful kitchen with everything you could possibly need, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was ideal.. And this industrial and minimalist design was truly gorgeous!!

This apartment was also the set to shoot some of the looks I wore during this edition of Fashion Week, as I had told you it would be.. and you can see a sneak peek in this post. I’ll be revealing all the looks little by little here on the blog, along with all the details and brands I wore. Soon, very soon!! Talk to you tomorrow ladies! :)

Polka dots and more polka dots: what do you think of my spotty look?


_MG_4435aPolka dots and more polka dots: what do you think of my spotty look?

Polka dots. Polka dots are a very feminine print, perfect for both daytime and evening wear. Of course, a full dotty look isn’t quite so straightforward… But during Fashion Week I gave it a go, opting for a matching shirt and palazzo trousers. I loved the result, but what do you think?? :)

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The oversized look. One of the biggest trends of recent seasons that was seen on both the catwalks and in streetstyle was that of wearing clothes in bigger sizes, while layering garments of different lengths on top of each other.

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The idea is certainly unique: wearing clothes that look too big for you is definitely not for every day! However I decided to try out this style during Milan Fashion Week… with a totally oversized look, including a long coat, a pair of palazzo pants, and a white shirt stolen from my man’s wardrobe. The result? Here it is!

L’Oreal Elnett: my experience as an Ambassador for Milan Fashion Week!

L’Oreal Elnett: my experience as an Ambassador for Milan Fashion Week!

L’Oreal Elnett. Milan Fashion Week has just finished and now we’re heading off to Paris Fashion Week, again together with Elnett at L’Oréal. This season I am actually the Digital Ambassador for L’Oréal Elnett for the Fashion Weeks, and together we are showing you how to achieve all the on-trend hairstyles from this fashion month! But before I show you tomorrow what the current hairstyle trends are, as seen on the catwalks… I’m unveiling which hairstyles I experimented with thanks to the L’Oréal and Elnett teams during Milan Fashion Week.

 L’Oreal Elnett: my experience as an Ambassador for Milan Fashion Week!

Every morning during Fashion Week I was beautifully pampered by the expert hands of the L’Oréal stylists in their studio inside the Hub of Camera della Moda (MFW HQ) in Piazza Gae Aulenti, the heart of the new super modern district of Milan. Here the L’Oréal team were in charge of creating beautiful, on-trend hairstyles for me every day, thanks to the legendary Elnett hairspray. I say legendary because this is an historic hairspray; the hairspray that all of our Mothers and Grandmothers used and still use today. I reckon that if it’s still the number one choice after all this time, it must be good, no?
