We bring you the hottest designs from the catwalks of London and Milan.

Those of you who are avid celeb-watchers, both nationally and internationally, will know what the latest fashion trends are as colours that pop out, unusual cuts and sheer fabrics continue to dominate the fashion scene.

Which is why it won't come as a surprise to see what popstars like Rihanna, fashion darling Tom Ford and well-established names like Westwood brought to the ramp at the recent London Fashion Week.

The Milan Fashion Week, meanwhile, kicked off with bold collections to persuade Italian shoppers that the worst of the economic crisis is over and it is time to hit the stores again.

Fashion houses like PPR's Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Prada, who exhibited their 2013-14 autumn-winter collections in Milan, carried forward the baton from London.

The London Fashion Week also saw popstar Rihanna launch her first ready-to-wear line with British high-street retailer River Island. The collection opened to mixed reviews.

While Tom Sykes from The Daily Beast felt the clothes were 'hideous without an ounce of panache,' MTV Style's Chrissy Mahlmeister was 'totally on-board with her comfy girly-yet-grunge pieces.'

Elle's fashion director Anne-Marie Curtis has dubbed the collection 'an ode to all things high fashion,' adding that it is 'eighties Norma Kamali meets Alexander Wang luxe sportswear.'

What do you think?
