Model Smorgasbord: Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss and More Light up Alberta Ferretti Runway

We always see the polished runway looks, but it’s pretty rare that we get a look at what happens behind-the-scenes. Lucky for everyone, we recently got a peek at a little bit of Alberta Ferretti’s beautiful backstage chaos.

Ferretti’s model roster is pretty star-studded, so fortunately for us, that means that the photos are nothing short of breathtaking.

We spotted big runway names such as Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, and a whole lot more as they busied themselves for the Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2018 show in Milan, Italy.

In a time where volume and ruffles are all the rage, designer Alberta Ferretti is calling for simplicity.

“I don’t want too many things,” the designer said backstage. “I felt this was an important moment to look back at the past and to think about what I want for the present.”

Aptly, the call for change comes from a designer who advocated embellishments on her designs.

The show opened with straightforward black maillots — a far cry from Ferretti’s love for all things flowy and chiffon.

However, the designer’s call for change did not manifest fully since we still saw some pretty confused pieces. The pleated lamé pants and knotted tops didn’t feel reinforcing to the entire collection.

At one point, Bella Hadid even showed up in a green dress which we could only shake our heads at.

Nonetheless, it was still a collection full of marketable ready-to-wear pieces. Not quite the change we were wanting to see, but not entirely bad.

The best part is that the show produced awesome backstage photos of our favorite models.

As for the shoes, we’re not huge fans of the glitter pastel sandals but the studded jelly flats are to die for. We especially love their contrast against the black, clean-cut suits.

Kendall Jenner was surprisingly not included in the Alberta Ferretti roster, but did surface at the Bottega Veneta show.
