Naomi isn't the only one dressing up for the law: A women's prison in Milan is reforming its inmates with fashion design classes, runway shows, and mentoring from some of Europe's top designers. Italian papers are reporting that the San Vittore jail held a fashion show last week, where prison guards (yes, really) modeled Alberta Ferretti's latest collection! Meanwhile, Blumarine designer Anna Molinari is set to collaborate with the prisoners on future designs, which will be produced under the name Gatti Galeotti - an Italian phrase that roughly translates into "jailbirds."

First Look: Alberta Ferretti for Macy's, the Complete Collection
Just in time for wedding and prom season, Alberta Ferretti has cooked up a roster of perfect dresses--at prices we can afford--for Macy's Impulse line. From a pretty maxi frock with braided straps, to a super-hot one-shouldered evening gown, there's seriously a dress for every occasion under the sun--and more. Ferretti also designed a handful of easy everyday pieces like open knit sweaters in cream and navy, and floral and lace tops. We saw part of the collection last night at the line's launch party and we have to say, the pieces looked even more high-end and pretty IRL. The collection won't hit stores until April 17, but you can see the whole thing right here and now--All the better to scope out your must-have purchases. Click through to see the full Alberta Ferretti for Macy's Impulse collection.
