We're live backstage at the Giorgio Armani show in Milan on via Bergognone, and with one hour till showtime things are getting frantic. Well, we say frantic but compared to most backstage fluster, Mr Armani's is amazingly cool and calm! No Diet Cokes or coffees here, the only drinks to make a hit are water and green and lemon teas! Make-up artist Linda Cantello is busily putting the finishing touches to the Armani Power women – think graphic eyes and strong but sexy killer red pouts with a sharply exaggerated cupids bow. This is Armani beauty as we've never seen it before! And the products? All Armani of course, we've heard there's a hot new top secret lipstick being tested. Hmmm... watch this space as we try to get a sneaky peek!
