Backstage in Milan: Abs, Barrettes, & Donatella
Now that men’s fashion week has become such a gender-bending scene, there are almost as many female models backstage — but it’s still a boy’s club at heart. The Cut sent photographer Kevin Tachman backstage at the men’s shows in Milan, where he found Donatella Versace posing with some hunks, Insta sensation Lucky Blue Smith at Bottega Veneta and Versace, and a male model sporting a great Rihanna T-shirt. At Prada, all things girly dominated, from dainty heels to mod paillettes, while at Gucci, a co-ed group modeled Alessandro Michele’s butterfly sweaters and embroidered lace pieces.
Between runway walks, the guys spent their downtime doing chin-ups and goofing off with a Calvin Klein thong. Click through the slideshow for a behind-the-scenes look at Milan men’s fashion week.
