Fashion News: Ricki Lake focuses on 'DWTS'; Milan Fashion Week ends

September 27, 2011 |  8:39 am

Ricki Lake is waiting until after her "Dancing With the Stars" gig to select a wedding dress for her upcoming nuptials with Christian Evans. Monday night's leader says she's too focused on the show. It's not a bad idea, because so many "DWTS" contestants seem to lose weight during the competition. In fact, she's lost 12 inches in three weeks. [People]

Armani Spring Summer 2012 
Cavalli Spring Summer 2012 Giorgio Armani and Roberto Cavalli closed Milan Fashion Week with their spring-summer 2012 shows on Tuesday. Neither strayed far from his respective line's usual aesthetic, with Armani showing soft jackets with slightly pointy shoulders, well-cut trousers, sarongs and strapless, beaded evening dresses (above), and Cavalli showing empire-line, print chiffons (at right).  [Telegraph]

Photographer Bruce Weber worked with 28 children and numerous dogs for a new promotional film for outerwear specialist Moncler, "Don't Steal the Jacket." Moncler calls the film a mix of musicals, thrillers and adventure films.  [Telegraph]

Designer Tom Ford has taken to having "secret" runway shows with either no or very limited media representation, preferring to have the word about his collections spread organically, from smitten client to smitten client. But at his recent London Fashion Week showing of his spring-summer 2012 designs, he did invite a few critics. And some unfavorable reviews are starting to emerge. [The Cut]  

Gucci, celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, opened the new Gucci Museo on Florence, Italy''s famed Piazza della Signoria on Monday. The three-story museum will showcase Gucci history and house contemporary art installations.  [WWD]
