Milan Fashion Week Spring 2011: The Nine Best Looks

The fashion that came off the runways in Milan this week was bright and bold and beautiful. From the DayGlo and Baroque and Latin flair at Prada, to the neon color blocking and couture silhouettes at Jil Sander, to the wedding-white lace confections at Dolce & Gabbana, Milan's designers made an impressive showing this season. It was my first time seeing the collections in Milan, so while I have less basis for comparison, all the heavy-hitting critics--Horyn, Menkes, Alexander--seemed to be in agreement that this season was one of the strongest showings from Milan in some time. Here are my top nine looks.
