Arriving fashionably late to the spring 2013 runways, many A-list models decided to swing by Milan — and casting directors took full advantage of their presence, evenly distributing the girls among 41 of the city’s top shows. Karmen Pedaru nabbed four opening and closing slots, including the first and last looks at Salvatore Ferragamo, while both Daria Strokous and Nadja Bender booked three opening or closing slots (Bender perhaps with an edge thanks to leading Etro, Trussardi, and Emilio Pucci, not that Daria’s ending outfit for Prada is anything to sniff at). Other notables on the catwalk included Joan Smalls, who closed both Fendi and Pucci’s shows; Anja Rubik, with a double-whammy at Gucci; and Lea T, who opened and closed Philipp Plein’s show.
