Our fourth day in Milan begun in the best way possible: with sunshine and a ginormous dollop of Roberto Cavalli glitz. Grazia's Executive Fashion and Beauty Director, Charlie Miller, continues to bring you the MFW experience through her eyes so click through the gallery above to see her best bits - and read on for the latest highlights...

1. The Brit line-up at Roberto Cavalli

The catwalk may have been actual fire on the Roberto Cavalli catwalk, but the front row was just as smoking. Ellie Goulding, Samantha Barks and Cheryl Cole (yeep!) arrived to take a place as the designer's VIPs and looked like full-on glamazons in their gold bling and animal print gear. After the show, we grabbed a chat with Ellie Goulding who told us, 'I just want to wear one of his dresses every single day!'. Yep, a girl after our own hearts. Watch our behind-the-scenes video here.

2. Gorgeous accessories at Tod's

Today we got a close-up look at the Tod's Autumn Winter 2014 collection and as well as Gorgeous accessories at the triple checks - scarf on coat on trousers - it was the divine accessories that got us drooling. First up were the monochrome bags with the boxy black and white creation being our fave. And secondly, the brand proved once again that the flat is still reigning supreme. Happy news for our aching feet.


3. Fabulously flamboyant street style

While in London, it was all about looking hip and cool on the streets, here in Milan, it's nothing but exuberance. There's tons of colour, embellishments and personality to the ladies' looks - and outside the Roberto Cavalli show, the fashionistas were going full-throttle. Move aside Anna Dello Russo. Watch our round-up of the best street style here.

4.  Prada presents a new chapter of The Iconoclasts

Also exciting is Prada's launch of a revival of its 'The Iconoclasts' project. The campaign works with top stylists to render new stylings of the label's collections, transforming Prada store boutiques with conceptual installations. For the latest installment of the project, W Magazine's fashion and style director Edward Enninful imagined Prada's Spring Summer 2014 collection in the context of the Harlem Renaissance. Enninful's stylings are installed on mannequins at Prada stores in the city with the women's store being transformed into "an imagined 1920s club – complete with glittering art-deco bar, evoking the atmosphere of Harlem." We're on our way pronto! Watch how it came to life below...

5. And finally: pizza!

You know what they say? When in Rome! Or rather Milan. Jess, Grazia's digital editor, takes a break after the Cavalli show to try the local delicacies. The verdict? Bellissimo!
