Lindsay Lohan and Courtney Love caused a paparazzi pile-up on the runway before the Cavalli show as photographers, bloggers and crews fought to get close to effectively the same person, but at different stages of her life.
The day before the show, ELLE was told by a head Cavalli honcho to expect a return to the label's leopard print and gold heyday after a subdued spring summer collection. Yes the leopard and its spots were in attendance but not nearly as ferocious as we had been expecting.
Animal prints were washed out and used on harem jumpsuits and gold was seen as brocade on trousers. This is not to say it wasn't showy, this is Cavalli after all.
Sequins and embroidery added a rich girl touch to the long white bohemian dresses, fur and cross-body satchels. This was 2010's version of 2004's Ibiza boho trend. Li Co Lo will love it.
