Milan fashion week is over, and the fashion set has moved on to Paris, where the shows resume tomorrow. At last night’s amfAR Milano gala—a sort of closing ceremony to the week—we asked a few key insiders to name their favorite shows and moments of the Milan week. So, everybody: What’d you like?
“Jil Sander for the bold punches of color with a modernist slant, and Dolce & Gabbana for the purity.” —Giovanna Battaglia (above)
“I love how Gucci makes me feel. Frida [Giannini] is a designer who knows a woman’s body well. It’s an honor to wear Gucci during Milan fashion week.” —Chanel Iman
“Roberto Cavalli, because of the whimsical touches he adds to his clothes.” —Cheyenne Jackson

The World Cup comes to an end this Sunday, and Shakira is on hand to perform the official song, “Waka-Waka,” for its closing ceremony. She’ll be wearing Cavalli for the occasion—a pearl-embroidered tulle top, a silk fringed skirt, and a denim belt. [Vogue U.K.]
The final word on the men’s shows? “Bleisure.” That’s business + leisure, i.e., looks that are polished enough to be office-ready but casual enough to be comfortable—think Cary Grant in the off-hours. Somehow the term “bleisure” has a little less unforced cool than, say, Cary Grant, but we guess it’s better than “professual,” which apparently it edged out. [WSJ]
And the Emmy nominations are out! It’s a good morning if you’re in the cast of Glee, Lost, or happen to be Tina Fey. But we think every morning’s probably a good morning if you happen to be Tina Fey. [Gawker]

Roberto Cavalli created a new corporate logo to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his label. Amazingly, it includes no animal print at all. [Racked]

Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Victoria Beckham (pictured; last week: 3)
Sometimes it’s about fashion, and sometimes it’s about family. This week, Mrs. Beckham put in time with latter, taking in Disney’s upfront presentation (starring the Jonas Brothers) with the kids. But it’s not all play and no work: Word broke last week that the designer will also be penning a fashion column for Gwyneth Paltrow’s online GOOP newsletter.
2. Christian Louboutin (last week: 2)
Want real Louboutins? Be prepared to wait for hours, as hopefuls did at last week’s CL sample sale. Want fake Louboutins? Well, M. Louboutin isn’t going to take that one lying down—he launched Stop Fake Louboutin last week, complete with a list of offending retailers and Web sites, the current status of legal actions being taken against them, and a video of thousands of phony shoes being crushed.
4. Roberto Cavalli (last week: N/A)
Speaking of the Riviera, Roberto Cavalli is there, too—relaxing on his yacht with J. Lo and Marc Anthony. Stars: They’re just like us?
5. Tom Ford (last week: N/A)
Ford’s new line of lipsticks—excuse us, “lipstick wardrobe”—drew rave reviews.
