CR Runway Show x LuisaViaRoma in Pitti Uomo: Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Stella Maxwell and more take on the runway
Pitti Uomo is one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar and the stars were out in full force to see it off last week. On Thursday night, Pitti Uomo came to a close with star-studded runway show held in partnership with LuisaViaRoma (which celebrated its 90th anniversary) and Carine Roitfeld of CR Fashion Book. With a list of supermodels including the Hadids and Irina Shayk as well as other A-listers, such Virgil Abloh and Lenny Kravitz in attendance, it was a show to remember.
Held at the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, the show saw over 3,000 arrive to watch models walk the runway. The show was opened by Gigi Hadid dressed in a tailored collar and tie ensemble, complete with plastic fantastic trousers. It was a moving homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, who designed the outfit and passed away earlier this year.
She was naturally joined by her sister, Bella Hadid, who proved Mugler is well and truly back in people’s minds as she walked the runway in pieces from the brand’s archive.
Model Irina Shayk, who reportedly split from actor Bradley Cooper earlier this month, walked the runway in two different outfits: an Ermanno Scervino leather dress with matching gloves and a Mugler Archive pinstriped skirt suit. It was her first return to the runway since she reportedly moved out of her and Cooper's Los Angeles residence.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel gang was also in attendance, with the likes of Doutzen Kroes, Stella Maxwell, Karolina Kurkova and Alessandra Ambrosio walking the 200-metre runway.
Supermodel Joan Smalls walked in two striking all black looks, one by Mugler Archive and another from Feragamo.
Ambrosio brought her partner, Nicolo Oddi, and they posed on the blue carpet for pictures.
Lenny Kravitz performed for the elite crowd and brought the party with a high-energy show complete with rainbow lights.
Other notable people who attended include Louis Vuitton menswear creative director Virgil Abloh, Karreuche Tran and her boyfriend Victor Cruz, singer J Balvin and many more.
