Zanita x Nordstrom: Milan Fashion Week Diary


Another eventful few days here in Milan for Fashion Week—and I’m loving every minute. I’ve had a revival of wearing red lipstick lately, and I couldn’t go without pairing it with a red top for at least one day. Wide-leg pants are also a new staple in my wardrobe—so elegant and comfortable.

My friend Rebecca (Raspberry & Rouge) snapped these images of my outfit as we closed out another day with great success. Such an exciting season to be involved in it all!

This is the first time I’ve traveled to all four major fashion weeks, and it’s been pretty crazy, but Milan has felt like a revival. Maybe it’s because the food has been so good—I’ve managed to eat proper meals each day, and each meal has been more tasty than the last. While getting lost and stumbling across the Duomo and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, I had the chance to experience a mozzarella tasting at Obikà. The serving pictured above is meant for 2-3 people, so I guess you could say it was slightly more than a ‘tasting.’ Incredibly delicious!

Show highlights include the effortless and ethereal Sportmax, where silk and minimalism reigned—and of course Roberto Cavalli, where embellishment and detailing were quite the opposite.

I visited the Jimmy Choo showing, and fell in love with a good half-dozen pairs—do we really need to wait until spring to score these beauties?! At least any possible kleptomaniac urges were fended off by the fact that there was only one shoe from each style sitting in the display.

Got a great photo of an army of street-style photographers wearing all black—these guys have so much personality! Shooting street style is a labour of love, and these guys are some of the most passionate in their field about what they do. Loved seeing them on the other side of the lens!

Zanita x Nordstrom: Milan Fashion Week Diary

It’s absolutely stellar to be on the scene in Milan. I feel revitalized—it’s been hard work—but being here for Fashion Week for the first time (and back in the sunshine) is a real thrill. It’s far easier to get around in Milan than it is in New York and London, which eases the stress a whole load.

The street style is absolutely brilliant, and I’ve been able to get some great shots. There are obviously hundreds of photographers vying for the perfect shot of that particular Russian editor/billionaire’s wife or that one blogger who never takes a wrong step in the style stakes.



Two days into MFW and my highlights include a sighting of indie actress Juno Temple and the brightly colored and romantic Alberta Ferretti show, which featured some of the most heavenly models I’ve seen on the runways yet.



The energy of it makes me so excited, because these people are truly lovers of fashion—not just new clothes but the evolution of designers and trends—and it brings all of these people together from across the globe.

Loving being in Italy, and while all the fashion and events have so far been just incredible, whenever I ask anyone what their favorite thing about coming to Milan for Fashion Week is, they always say, “THE FOOD!” And with that I’m back to my desktop snack of buffalo mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. Viva Italia!

Zanita x Nordstrom: London Fashion Week Diary

Landed in London and off to a relatively slow start, what with the bad weather and jet lag (did someone say red-eye?), but it’s great to be back in this town. I lived here for a short period while I was modeling, so it’s actually my second London Fashion Week—but this time, I’m observing the runway instead of walking on it!









An enormous highlight to kick-start the week: the House of Holland show, complete with a crop of British celebrities including Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof, Leigh Lezark, Kelly Osbourne and… wait for it… Harry Styles, who—of course—stole the whole show, leaving ladies weak in the knees all around.

Gotta admit, my heart did pound a little faster when I saw him, and my fingers fumbled on my focus button—it’s little like seeing a lion in the wild! A real-life boy band superstar! Haha!





I would be remiss without a mention of the show itself: It was a fun combo of ladylike elegance and urban cool. My favorite pieces were the backstrap holsters, perfect to roll with a set of keys and a phone attached too. Clever and super-cool idea!


And now a sadder story to add to my Fashion Week repertoire: the one about how I missed out on the Unique show. Ready and raring to go to the event, I allowed what I thought would have been plenty of time for my arrival… unfortunately, my “be there in 10 minutes” cab became a “be there in 50 minutes” cab, and the ensuing drama of getting stuck in traffic for a hour became a tale of real heartbreak. I was absolutely going to miss the show, not just by a little bit either—almost two hours after leaving my door, I committed to turning back around and going home again. I blame the rain. C’est la vie!

On the positive side, at least I’m able to feature my Topshop outfit. This fluffy sweater is so feminine and adorable, and I love the contrast with my oversized cropped trousers. The denim jacket really brings in that retro feeling I’m so fond of. Feels very me! And it works with my crazy fluffy hair too.

Looking forward to sharing more of my tourist adventures and LOTS of street style with you very soon!
