Italian designers are known for their glitz and glamour, and Spring 2012 was no exception.

Versus and Roberto Cavalli even offered a less literal approach to the trend via car wash pleat skirts and silk paneled gowns.

Also of note: the gorgeous full-volume hair at Ferragamo, D&G, and Versace. Click through to see all that and more, here in the slideshow.
