Naomi, dressed in a star studded Dolce & Gabbana leather dress, was photographed with her pals Beckford, Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani and supermodel Eva Herzigova at the Pirelli Corso Venezia flagship store opening.

The Italian fashion week kicked off days after the fashion world was thrown into a panic in London.

It seemed that Marc Jacobs, whose production was delayed by Hurricane Irene, couldn’t make up his mind when it came to casting models for his show last week. As casting for London Fashion week was starting, models missed flights back to London.

Three days ago models were pulled from shows in London because Gucci demanded models fly to Italy for fittings for its show, leaving some designers stranded for London Fashion Week. A Gucci show can make a model’s career, so when the call came down, beauties fled to Milan in hopes they would walk in the show. Gucci’s maneuver has angered a few designers who worry that Milan & New York are edging out London.
