We're doing some more Dolce & Gabbana bag spotting, now on the FROW

We're inside the Dolce & Gabbana show waiting for the FROWers to arrive. What will Anna Dello Russo be wearing we wonder?

Ooh, what - or who - are these flowers for?

Makeup maestro Pat McGrath tells us about the sun-kissed beauty look backstage

Crowns for the princesses, floral wreaths for the boho girls

Oh. Wow.

These are the wonder products Pat McGrath is using backstage at Dolce & Gabbana for the Sophia Loren-esque look

Before makeup is applied, the skin is prepped for extra glow

As well as the glitzy hair, there's also this boho-inspired look

Err, how goooorgeous is the Dolce & Gabbana hair? Nice work Guido

...AND these monogram slippers

We want to be a Dolce & Gabbana model if only for these silky dressing gowns...

And THIS is what the models have to feast on

Oh hai Jessica Hart!

It's time...

The Dolce & Gabbana action is about to start at the Metropol - and we're going backstage!

How better to start the day than with a Dolce & Gabbana-tastic brekkie?

This morning we are reporting live from Dolce & Gabbana's Spring Summer 2014 catwalk presentation at Milan Fashion Week. As well as interviewing the Dolce & Gabbana beauty team - including the one and only Pat McGrath - and the models backstage and capturing all the front row action on the lead up to the big reveal of the brand's latest collection, we're going to be chatting to designer duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana just ahead of the show with an exclusive video coming to Grazia Daily tomorrow.

You won't have to wait that long however, as we'll be capturing all the action over the next four hours on this live blog - so remember to hit refresh to keep up to date.

After arriving at the Metropol where the show is hosted we were given the green light to head backstage. Beforehand we had enjoyed an Italian brekki - Dolce-style. Once safely inside the venue we spotted Aussie beauty Jessica Hart having her hair done, hairstylist Guido Palau working his magic, the wonder products used by Pat McGrath's team and model's tucking into the tasty Dolce spread before hitting the runway - all while we prepared for our face to face meeting with the designers themselves. Eeek!

Domenico and Stefano told us a little secret about the show itself - the model opening today's presentation will be blonde - unusual for Dolce & Gabbana who usually favour brunettes.

We also chatted to super FROWer Anna Dello Russo about her recent holiday with the Dolce & Gabbana team - and we developed a huge girl crush on model Kate King.
