The Best of Milan Fashion Week

Sex appeal is something Milan Fashion Week always offers en masse, but whilst the 'smoky eyed, heavy lipped' look (which we love) has become synonymous with Milanese autumn beauty, this season hair stylists and make-up artists seemed to be ignoring the recession with extravagantly overstated versions of the city's trademark look.

Eighties and punky influences still reigned supreme as one of the defining inspirations for autumn/winter 2009-10's beauty - glossy magenta graced lips at Alberta Ferretti while the Blumarine girls were sculpted like the original Supers.

Heavy contouring and lip liner also made strong (and not entirely unexpected) comebacks at Alessandro dell'Acqua and Moschino Cheap & Chic, which means anyone who thought they could escape the Eighties steam roller next season might be thinking differently now.
