Everyone knows Milan is one of the fashion capitals of the world, so when it comes to fashion week in the bustling Italian city, all eyes are on the runway to catch a glimpse of what’s in style.

Whether the models on the runway in Milan were sporting bold, eccentric eye makeup or sporting a more relaxed, blast-from-the-past inspired ‘do, we only have one word for these fashion week creations: bellissima
