Dolce and Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week

So there are so many Fashion Weeks going on at the moment I can barely keep up! One of the shows that is making so much noise is the Dolce and Gabbana Autumn/Winter Collection. And I can see why! With a very cathederal-like influence, all the jewels (including crucifixes, rosaries and crowns) were very bold and created a huge statement! Coloured gemstones seem to be the ‘it’ stone in the coming winter season, the more the better!

A crown fit for a princess? More like a warrior princess! There was nothing whimsical about this collection, with the models looking particularly fierce!

These earrings are gorgeous! Might be a tad OTT for a stroll down Long Street however..

Imagine wearing these.. Your ears must be sore for days!

There was a very Sicilian cathedral feel to not only just the jewellery, but the collection as a whole.

Doesn’t she look as if she has come out of an old portrait hanging in a castle somewhere?

This makes me think of Jozi ‘okes’ who wear crucifixes when they go out. It looks beautiful on the model but I am not exactly about to rush out and buy one.
