Nipped-in waists and leggy looks rule in Milan

Milan celebrated the feminine form this week as models wearing the latest looks for autumn 2006 paraded down the Italian runways in a host of figure-hugging creations which emphasised the waist and celebrated shapely pins.

With celebrity fan Sienna Miller looking on from the front row, British designer Matthew Williamson - who was presenting his first collection for Emilio Pucci - delivered elegant nipped-in waist suits and fun prints based around a fuchsia palette.

The season's form-fitting silhouette was also echoed in the new Emporio Armani line, where jackets were cut, peplum effect, to flow flatteringly over the hips.

Among those labels revelling in raised hemlines were Gucci and Blumarine's second line, Blugirl. In the latter collection designer Anna Molinari kept things short with a thigh-skimmming, fur-trimmed scarlet number and revealed extra inches with a shocking pink strapless cocktail dress with knotted-effect skirt.

Chilly autumn days also seem to have been far from the thoughts of design duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who had largely dispensed with skirts and trousers in favour of knitted "knickers" throughout their white-themed collection.
