New 2012 Milan Shows: Dolce &Gabbana, Marni, and More -- The Cut We've got more from Milan! On the Missoni runway, models walked in dresses and separates in signature Missoni prints, topped with belts, fur, and cropped wrap sweaters. Dolce & Gabanna went for the old faithful pantless, sheer, and gold-embroidered looks, and added bejeweled headbands, black veils, and dramatic earrings. Curvy silhouettes ruled the runway at Marni, where boxy, fur-collared coats, wide-shouldered jackets, and waist-defining skirts showed in bright colors, floral prints, and basic black. See these shows and a bunch of details shots in our fashion galleries. RUNWAY• Aquilano e Rimondi • Byblos • Dolce & Gabbana• Frankie Morello
