The Clothes: Leopard, floral, lace, porcelain-inspired print: It's no secret that Just Cavalli's ethos is of the 'more is more' variety. The first looks that came onto the runway were intrinsic to the brand: Mini skirts with panels of leopard and floral, roomy leopard bermuda shorts (which I was actually really feeling) paired with a floral biker jacket, a white suit--plain from the front, which had a panel of leopard down the back--leopard and floral jeans, a leopard bomber...you get the picture. Later the collection transitioned into a more sophisticated monochromatic palette with sexy lace and knit numbers. Then came the porcelain-inspired print pieces--frocks and jackets in a white and blue pattern. My favorite looks, however, were towards the end: Tie-dyed looks in bright green and blue which recalled patterns on tropical fish (and, perhaps, Proenza Schouler's Spring 2010 collection). The final looks, on the other hand--tropical print frocks in a kaleidoscope of colors--could have been inspired by Cavalli's pet parrot.

Hair and Makeup: The boldness of the collection was tempered by the models' unfussy hair and makeup.

The Soundtrack: 'Never Be Another' by Delilah

The Vibe: Held at the beautiful Arco Della Pace (arch of peace) at the Parco Sempone.

The Front Row: Solange! Unfortunately, however, the girl-about-town was refusing all pictures and interviews. Azealia Banks was there, too.
