Gigi Hadid Walks the Runway with Lauren Hutton and All the Biggest Moments You Missed from Milan Fashion Week
Come for the models, stay for the Tevas designed by Versace
For those who don’t keep a close eye on the fashion month schedule, September has probably seemed like an interminable parade of models and their Instagrams flooding your feed. At this point in the season, even those of us who get butterflies in our stomach as the first invitations for New York begin to roll in are starting to get a little catwalk weary (not to mention our feet could use a much deserved flats break). But it turns out, each fashion week there’s really just a handful of highlights that you really need to see if you want to keep up with all the latest, and luckily, we’ve already done all the legwork for you.
In news that should finally put that whole are-they aren’t-they supermodels thing to bed, well at least for Gigi Hadid, the Tommy Hilfiger-collaborator walked the Bottega Veneta runway with Lauren Hutton:
For those who aren’t familiar with Hutton’s work, she’s one of the reasons the word supermodel even exists today. Not only is she an iconic face, landing every magazine cover and campaign you can imagine, gap-tooth and all, but also, at the age of 72, she’s never stopped working, opening up doors for older women in a youth-obsessed industry. By joining her all-American 21-year-old counterpart on the runway, Hutton has proverbially passed the torch to a whole new generation of models.
But Bottega wasn’t the only label honoring the influence youths are currently having on the world of fashion. Dolce & Gabbana’s front row alone had more Instagram followers than you ever will:
It seems that all of the who’s who of the under-twenty social media set converged on the show, including Vine star Cameron Dallas, model family Lucky, Blue, Pyper America, Daixy Clementine and Starlie Cheyenne Smith, Zara Larsson, and Luka Sabbat. And of course, no show would be complete without a few second generation stars, such as Sofia Richie, Rafferty Law, Brandon Thomas Lee, and Sistine Stallone.

Art teacher shoes are officially having a moment on the Versace runway:
We may have been a little flippant about the whole Ugg x Teva collaboration earlier last week, but it seems these shoes are having a high fashion moment. First Ugg partnered up with Preen by Thornton Bregazzi to craft some very out of character platform slip-ons, and now it appears that Versace has taken inspiration from your favorite pair of summer camp sandals re-creating the shoes in heavily bedazzled and branded iterations.
But back to Gigi:
Prior to her turn on the catwalk for Bottega, the model crafted a next level Canadian tuxedo ensemble for snapping a few candid polaroids with fashion royalty Karl Lagerfeld. While the whole frayed denim skirt over frayed and ripped boyfriend jeans is definitely inventive, we would give our first born to know how the Chanel impresario felt about this particular sartorial decision.
And Boomer Phelps was clearly the breakout star of fashion week:
Ah to be a baby Olympic good luck charm cradled in the arms of a supermodel. May all of our weeks be this blessed.
