MFW Diary: The statement necklace in street style pics

At Gucci on Wednesday,
Frida Giannini showed notice-me statement necklaces, and this season, the style setters in Milan are right there with her, sporting an array of eye-catching neckwear that gets madder and more exciting as the week goes on. I snapped the above look outside the Prada show just before Anna Wintour arrived, flanked by bodyguards, smiling enigmatically at the ground as she breezed by fashion fans who were either yelling or murmuring her name—or, in my case, "Where’s my camera…damn." (Sorry, friends. Next time!) The statement necklace trend continued throughout the week.
Click through for three of my favourites  snapped on the streets in Milan…

Plastic perfection outside the Moschino show. (That’s the Etro invite she’s holding.) Great nail colour too!

I love the playfulness of this look—faux pearls mixed with camo print. Snapped outside the Just Cavalli show this morning.

Pretty in paisley outside Moschino. I didn’t have a chance to snap her shoes before security opened the doors, but they were equally adorable—cherry-printed Moschino platforms. (

I took this pic just after the Just Cavalli show, when everyone (soon, me included) was clambering to get a shot of Solange Knowles. I asked the above editor if I could take her pic; she said yes, then turned her head to the side to make it look as if it was a spontaneous shot. Whatever works?
