Dolce & Gabbana’s Real Models

Dolce & GabbanaDolce & Gabbana used "real men" in their Milan Fashion Week show.

The fashion house decided against using models on the catwalk, instead sending 73 Sicilian men and boys aged between 12 and 43 - with occupations including student, house painter, barber, and waiter - down the runway accompanied by a live band in traditional costume.

Explaining the unusual showcase of the collection - which was largely monochrome linen, silk, light wool and chiffon - Steffano Gabbana said, "We wanted to put our clothes on real men because fashion should be for real people."

The show's finale saw all 73 men don dark suits and white jackets which were each slightly different to one another.

Elsewhere, Jil Sander made her return to her eponymous label, with her first collection in eight years showing an update to her signature minimalist style with colour and more modern cuts.

Sarah Jessica Parker Turns Out for Burberry

Sarah Jessica Parker

Fashion week regular was among the celebrities in attendance at the Burberry Prorsum fashion show in London yesterday.

The Sex and the City actress donned a military style jacket and a brown skirt for proceedings at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, with TV presenters Cat Deeley and wearing similar ensembles.

The collection, designed by Burberry stalwart Christopher Bailey, was a sexy combination of animal prints and leather, with studded biker jackets making an appearance on many of the models. Bright, acid yellows and blues also dotted the catwalk - sometimes in the form of belts and bags and others in dresses - adding to the usual khakis and black so associated with Burberry.

The Harry Potter actress is the face of British fashion house Burberry and sibling Alex was shopping in the store, where he was soon introduced to the firm’s creative director .

“I was actually shopping for a suit in Burberry to wear at one of Emma’s premiere’s when someone from the brand approached and said ‘I think I think you should meet with Christopher.’”

Before he knew it, Alex had been cast alongside his famous sister in a Burberry campaign and while he is a novice, Emma has been giving him advice: “It was such a shock but it was a pretty good gig. Emma’s been really great - we get on very well but it’s good to have her there to give me tips. Her main one is to relax and don’t be scared. Easier said than done though. She’s just so efficient!”

Although it wasn’t a career he set out to do, Alex is loving every moment of being a model:
