"Armani dazzles Milan, Versace unveils Oscar gowns.
MILAN — Emporio Armani took to the catwalks in Milan Fashion Week ahead of the hotly-awaited Roberto Cavalli show on Saturday after Donatella Versace showed off fabulous feathered gowns for the Oscar ceremony.
Singers Tina Turner and Ricky Martin were among the guests expected at the show by Italian fashion king Giorgio Armani's label, which has hired US actress Megan Fox for a sexy ad campaign that has proved a hit on the Internet.
The show built up expectations for the designs by 70-year-old Cavalli, who has bounced back from the economic crisis and is looking to tap new emerging markets with his brightly-coloured and overtly sensual clothes.
