Allegra and Daniel Versace join R&B stars front row at Milan shows

14 JANUARY 2008
The fashion set flocked to Milan at the weekend to check out the menswear we'll be seeing this autumn and winter. And looking on as Donatella Versace brought back the double-breasted jacket and low-waisted trousers in a collection dominated by navy, burgundy and brown were her children Allegra, 21 and 18-year-old Daniel.

The siblings joined R&B stars Jay Z, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce - the face of Armani's Diamonds fragrance in the front row at the presentation. Next stop for the music trio was the alpine-inspired Emporio Armani show, which featured monochrome ski wear embellished with a flurry of snow-like sparkles and Scandinavian-style sweaters.

At Alexander McQueen enormous fluffy sheepskins, Russian-style fur stoles and over-size jerseys were teamed with boho headscarfs to ensure the McQueen man stays toasty even in the most Arctic conditions.

Also presenting her vision of next winter at the shows, which were packed into four days to fit around Paris menswear and couture, was Vivienne Westwood. The flame-haired designer delivered sports chic interpreted through baggy patterned trousers and t-shirts in bold hues of purple, aqua marine and orange.
