Vogue Editor-at-Large Andre Leon Talley was forced to attend the D&G show in Milan in "Juicy Couture shorts and a gray Ralph Lauren polo shirt" when his luggage was lost on the flight over from New York. "Talley said he was headed straight afterward to Giorgio Armani and Ermegildo Zegna. 'Hopefully I can be hooked up in an hour,' he said wishfully, not being an off-the-rack sort. 'I think from now on I'll have to bring clothes in a backpack (about the size of a trunk) and somehow get it on the plane.'" [WWD, subscription req]
