Milan Fashion Week has wrapped up but we couldn't leave you without a roundup of our favorite red carpet-worthy looks. It takes a standout piece to steal the spotlight — and the photographers' attention — so we culled the top 15 looks that will surely land celebs on top of the best dressed list. From Roberto Cavalli's sexy printed gowns to hot pink leather pants from Salvatore Ferragamo, we got all of your red carpet fashion fantasies covered.
>> During the final Milan shows yesterday, Vlada Roslyakova and Olga Sherer were spotted sharing a magazine backstage at Gianfranco Ferre while Hanne Gaby Odiele played telephone with a croissant pre-Roberto Cavalli. See the glittery eyes on all behind-the-scenes at DSquared2 and who hid behind her handbag at Giorgio Armani — in the slideshow.

>> Fashion's finest — Giovanna Battaglia, Arizona Muse, and more — honored the final day of Milan Fashion Week in head-to-toe black and white. Not Anna Dello Russo, of course: She brought the color in a gilded minidress. See those looks, plus more, in the slideshow.
We love street style just as much as the runway, and Milan Fashion Week is giving us the best of both worlds. While New York showed off more casual street style looks, Milan brings it to a whole new level with enviable, high-impact ensembles — perfect for Fall dressing inspiration. Ranging from an all-black look from seasoned heavy-hitter Taylor Tomasi Hill to Anna Dello Russo's bright yellow frocks, we culled the best street-snapped outfits from MFW for you to check out. Just start clicking, and get ready to be wowed.

Ciao, Italia! Milan Fashion Week wrapped up, and more than anything there seemed to be a sense of joy that pervaded the collections. Designers played with textures — plastic, raffia, crochet, and fringe — and revisited retro silhouettes like full skirts and cropped tops. There were playful car prints (Prada) and vegetable prints (Dolce & Gabanna). There was bold color. And there were a few trends that were new to Milan; others we first saw arise in New York and London. Before you turn your eyes to Paris, check out our favorite trends from Milan.
Can anyone do sexy as joyfully as the Italians? Only Dolce & Gabbana could make wearing vegetable prints insanely sexy. In Milan, the crop top made a huge comeback, and while we're wary of the look in real life, we adored the trend on the runway. There was an overt flirtatiousness from designers, who played with sheer fabrics, thigh-high slits, and dresses that fell off shoulders in the most enticing ways. From lush, exotic pieces and draped satins to sexy suiting and retro-fitted swimsuits, Milan inspired the Sophia Loren in all of us.
