#1297 Snapped at Milan Fashion Week – Day 1

New Zealand model Christopher Landon backstage at Dolce and Gabbana – his first ever fashion show. Not a bad one to start with. He had two looks – the second of which was this pair of shorts. After Milan Fashion Week he told me he’s flying to New York to shoot a pretty hefty editorial with Mariano Vivanco. More on that when it happens.

The Dolce half of Dolce and Gabbana, Domenico Dolce, explaining the significance of Annie Lennox to a group of young male models who weren’t yet born when the Eurythmics were formed (neither was I, for that matter). Lennox sang live for the duration of the 17 minute Dolce and Gabbana show, including her cult hits A Whiter Shade of Pale, No More I Love Yous and There Must Be An Angel.

Australian backstage photographer extraordinaire Sonny Vandevelde on the tram to Costume National. He tells me he’s going for the Chopper Read look with that facial hair of his.

The Style Guy, Glenn O’Brien before the Calvin Klein show. O’Brien was a contemporary of Andy Warhol’s and is generally known as an all-round cool dude. He writes a regular sartorial advice column for men over at GQ that’s always well worth a read.

Brit musician Gwilym Gold with model Sara Blomqvist before the Burberry show. Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey is a known fan and exponent of young British bands. These two were special guests of the house, and Gold stars in the latest Burberry ad campaign. He was one of the more affectatious [sic] young men I’ve ever witnessed, but utterly captivating all the same. No doubt he’ll go far.
