The magic of Milan Fashion Week lies in its unapologetic excess. 

There are dresses that take a team of five people just to put on (looking at you, Elisabetta Franchi). 

Huge platefuls of spaghetti that must be eaten half-naked in preparation (*cough* Caroline Vreeland *cough*). 

Backstage make-up looks that draw their inspiration from the motto “Basic Bitch” (hello, MAC). 

And throwbacks starring the late designer Gianni Versace and a *very* young Elton John (yesss, Claudia Schiffer), as five supers of the 90s reunite for the 20th anniversary of Gianni’s death.

Join us on a decadent foray behind the scenes at #MFW 2018.
