Milan Fall 2009 Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana

I am absolutely loving Dolce & Gabbana's latest Fall collection which was perfectly inspired by the legendary Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli.. Bubble sleeves, oversize ruffles, deep dark colors, heavy gold watch necklaces, and a whimsical twist on accessories by slapping on some expensive looking leather gloves atop models' heads and tied around their necks, worn as delicate neck scarves. Over the years i've become slightly bored with D & G's identifiable corset dresses which are often worn, uninspired, by many a Hollywood starlet. This Fall 2009 collection, however, is rich and striking with sharp black and white combinations and notes of shocking pink; iconic Marilyn Monroe images and mouth-watering suede platform shoes included.
