The fashion capital of glam.

As fashion month moves to Milan, prepare yourself for some polish, glamour and a side order of sex appeal. London is known for its experimental approach to style, Paris for its pared-back brand of cool.

But Milan is where you'll find sequins served with your morning espresso. For yesterday's kick-off, the fashionable gathered at Fendi (Bella Hadid open the show in a skimpy slip dress and fuzzy jacket). While today, Prada had a front row jam-packed with celebrities: Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora and Euphoria's Storm Reid, who watched her cast-mate, Hunter Schafer, close the show.

Off the catwalk, the street style is going strong and serving us lewks. Glenn Martens' Diesel collection leant into our love of the '00s, with the leather motorcycle jacket and denim strapless tops stealing the show.

In fact, the biker jacket in all its glory is cropping up over and over again. From Julia Fox's sunshine yellow version (with matching trousers, of course) to battered leather bombers, here's our favourites from the street style set so far...
