The 35 Best Modest Looks from Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2022

Milan Fashion Week came back strong after two years in the deep due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Making bold choices, participating designers played with the fall and winter season colors of black, brown, white, beige, blue, and silver/grey, creating an almost dark/light academia aesthetic. Standing out were Roberto Cavalli’s striking leopard patterns with draping suit jackets and majestic cape dresses, while Dolce & Gabbana made statements with headscarves paired with demure silhouettes in monochrome palettes. Versace embraced a similar mood, but with form-fitting shapes, and Jil Sander took on a more formal approach and offered a modest suit in yellow and a grey dress paired with white leather gloves.
Below, check out the 35 best modest looks spotted on the runways of Milan Fashion Week.

One Day, Three Outfits: Jennifer Lopez Is Nailing the Matchy Layered Look During Her Marry Me Press Tour

Jennifer Lopez‘s enviable style is having its time in the spotlight even more than usual of late, as the star promotes her upcoming film, Marry Me. And while doing so in the winter season calls for being styled in cozy, layered outfits, it has not put a damper on Lopez’s ability to make headlines for her looks.
In New York, ahead of her appearance on The Today Show, the Hustlers actor was spotted putting a spin on the monochrome look as we know it. All three pieces in her ensemble, courtesy of Fendi, were covered in a beautiful marbled blue pattern. The look consisted of a silk dress topped with an oversized velvet trench coat that cinched at the waist with a metal Fendi O’Lock buckle, and paired with a matching velvet handbag. Lopez completed her look with light brown suede stiletto boots to contrast the pattern-heaviness, which made a return in her second look the same day.

This time, the ‘Jenny From the Block’ singer opted for the daring snakeskin print in cream and black, which covered her Roberto Cavalli outfit from head to toe. She wore a snakeskin coat on top of a matching turtleneck dress, over a pair of tights and heels in the same pattern. Even though she sported two different beauty looks for her appearances, they both featured soft glam makeup and pared-down hair to balance the boldness of her outfits.

The 52-year-old ditched the print-on-print look for her next stop in the press tour but still kept it layered. Visiting Live with Kelly & Ryan to promote the film which also stars Owen Wilson and Maluma, Lopez chose to join Kim Kardashian and Rihanna in wearing one of fashion’s new favorite colors: hot pink. The monochrome look was picked from Valentino‘s SS20 ready-to-wear collection and featured a blazer over a sheer blouse with an oversize bow around the neck, paired with knee-length trousers, and matching platform pumps. For her beauty look this time, Lopez let her hair down, tucked behind her ears and in a sleek middle part, which complimented her glossy lips and defined eyelashes.

Karen Wazen Becomes the First Middle Eastern To Front a Global Campaign for Roberto Cavalli

Karen Wazen Becomes the First Middle Eastern To Front a Global Campaign for Roberto Cavalli

Influencer and entrepreneur Karen Wazen is officially the first Middle Eastern to be the face of a global Roberto Cavalli campaign. The Lebanese-born, Dubai-based mother-of-three was recently seen in a series of stills for the Italian fashion house. The campaign, which celebrates Roberto Cavalli’s fragrances—the Paradiso perfume, in particular—shows a glowing Wazen dressed in the label’s signature animal print essentials against an equally rustic series of backdrops inspired by wildlife patterns.
All set to be officially unveiled in February, the campaign was reportedly shot in Paris earlier this year. In an official statement, Fausto Puglisi, creative director of Roberto Cavalli, shared, “We are extremely excited to welcome Karen to the Cavalli family. Her liberated spirit and glamorous style embodies the iconic Cavalli universe. We are proud to kickstart our collaboration together with a campaign that celebrates the core Cavalli fragrance pillars, which are the epitome of femininity and bring together a melody of notes inspired by out Italian heritage.” This campaign also marks the first time the fashion house has featured an influencer in its campaign.
Wazen too shared her excitement about the project with her 7.1 million Instagram followers, saying, “This is such a dream for an Arab girl from Lebanon to be the global spokesperson for such an iconic brand… thank you to the most amazing team for this opportunity and for an unforgettable experience.”

In the shots, Wazen gazes at the camera with flawlessly painted cat eyes, while the rest of her beauty look is refreshingly stripped back. Think barely-there base makeup that allows freckles and natural textures to shine through, soft caramel lips, and easy, straight locks. The only indulgent beauty element you’ll spot here is that molten gold manicure, which brings in some of Cavalli’s trademark drama.
Along with being a special moment for the brand, the Roberto Cavalli campaign is another feather in Karen Wazen’s cap, who also launched her very own eyewear brand in 2018, and a game named ‘Karen Wazen: My World’ last year. Scroll to check out more pictures from the campaign!

Fausto Puglisi Unveils First Collection for Roberto Cavalli

Fausto Puglisi Unveils First Collection for Roberto Cavalli

MILAN — Designer Roberto Cavalli in his heyday was “popular, pop, just like Coca-Cola and Marilyn Monroe,” according to Fausto Puglisi. “His imagery didn’t need any translation, people reacted to it immediately, whatever their social status or latitude — you could love it or hate it, but it was powerful and captivating.”
Appointed creative consultant last October, Puglisi brings to the brand his own set of powerful and bold designs, developed first for his namesake label launched in 2010 and then for Emanuel Ungaro in the 2013 to 2017 period.
Puglisi said during a Zoom call ahead of the launch of his first collection for Cavalli, bowing for fall 2021, that he has relied on his own personal experience living in the U.S. from 1998 to 2006 — a period he described as “the golden years” for the brand in that region. “The U.S. was Cavalli’s main market at the time, Sarah Jessica Parker would slip in his name now and again in ‘Sex and the City’ and America is still the brand’s main market online,” said Puglisi, who has a strong affection for the country, which he describes as “an extraordinary mix of cultures, the center of the world in terms of cultural experimentation and movements that overturn global lifestyles.”

While mindful of those glamorous years, Puglisi is also keenly aware of the current scenario, with refugees fleeing Syria, the Black Lives Matter movement catching the attention of the world, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I love this job and I respect the house of Cavalli, but I tried to understand the brand according to my own sensibility. I have a high political awareness and I respect the situation the world is in today and all that is going on. I am adding my own point of view to the brand, I don’t want to simply rely on the archives for inspiration.”
Puglisi also delved into the brand’s “exceptional” archives in Florence and was intrigued by “the early days in Cavalli’s history, a moment that not many people may remember. He experimented with fabrics, he had his own printing plant and his denim from the 1970s was incredible — the decors, the hippy vibes, the references to America, from California to Texas. I found them new and timeless.” To be sure, Cavalli was known for his printed knitwear and leather and a trail-blazing approach to denim via special treatments, embroideries and a stretch connotation.
Puglisi did meet the namesake founder of the company once in his villa in Florence. “I loved how he was larger than life, he loves life, he is curious and full of ideas. I certainly would never have imagined to be tapped for this role.”
Last year, Sajwani, the founder and chairman of Dubai-based Damac Properties, acquired the Roberto Cavalli company from Clessidra SGR through his private investment firm Vision Investments.
Puglisi with this collection wanted to celebrate women and the right to be sexy “without objectifying them. Thankfully, women are intelligent and can choose, it’s not the designer who says what they should wear,” he observed. “I have always worked on the concept of inclusivity, independent of color and sex, even when it was not fashionable,” Puglisi added. “I love Miami because of the total freedom it allows.”

Fausto Puglisi  FILIPPO FIOR

Puglisi photographed the collection modeled by a diverse and inclusive cast for the look book, but will not be staging a show during Milan Fashion Week. “I didn’t want the first show for the brand to be with no public. Cavalli is about a community of people, it’s like Beyoncé or Madonna holding a first concert with no public.”
Puglisi did not shy away from revisiting Cavalli’s signature animal prints, while offering his own take on long ’50s skirts or dresses with deep slits. “Everyone is doing animal prints, but it’s iconic Cavalli, so let’s take it back.” However, he opted for earthy tones, from nude and ivory to caramel and chocolate, staying away from flashy colors, which he believes are “exaggerated at the moment.”
The coed collection, with some kids’ looks,  also comprises puffer jackets — a first for Puglisi — sweatshirts, oversized quilted capes and casual pants with a streetwear vibe. Trenchcoats are sharply tailored. A fitted blazer is paired with a full circle skirt.
Nodding to the American flag, Puglisi recreated its pattern with zebra prints instead of the stripes and leopard spots in place of the stars for the U.S. of Cavalli statement, a “universal flag wrapping together citizens of all cultures,” he said.
Zebra, tiger, jaguar prints are also shown in graphic renditions or in patchworks — claws and fangs included.
Gone is the bohemian attitude of a former Cavalli designer, Peter Dundas. Puglisi’s woman is all fired up.
In men’s wear, denim is treated with airbrushed textures and has a worn-out “garage kid” vibe, said Puglisi, and patched leather biker jackets are worn over animalier oversized boxy shirts, hoodies and sweatpants.
