She’s the boss of any runway she struts down, and the latest was no exception. Naomi Campbell donned a pinstriped power suit to grace Dolce & Gabbana‘s show at Milan Men’s Fashion Week, proving just why she’s a catwalk veteran of more than 30 years. The Italian design duo roped in the British model to help present their Spring 2019 men’s collection, dressing Campbell in a two piece with a contrasting polka-dot bow tie and regal crystal-encrusted brooch. The pristine tailoring and sharp print is certainly going to be inspiring our new-season workwear purchases.

Campbell wasn’t the only woman to take to the runway, either – Italian actor Monica Bellucci made an appearance in a sleek, black three-piece pantsuit with a crisp, white shirt. The Malèna star, who last walked for the house in 1992 according Vogue Paris, injected an air of Hollywood pizzazz into the show, which was itself an ode to diversity.

Entitled DNA Evolution, the collection boasted rich tapestry of designs, such as gilded jackets, opulent sportswear, and patched military pieces. As per the Italian label’s style, a wealth of millennial stars, including actor Cameron Dallas, Elias Becker (son of tennis ace Boris), and Wizkid, modeled designs, as well as singer Tinie Tempah and social media star Nash Grier.

“The perfectly tailored suits, the tuxedos, the black lace, the silk print dresses—the things we made that excited us 30 years ago are exciting young customers today,” Stefano Gabbana told backstage. “They want to make these things that are our own, their own. Really, we don’t work in fashion. Our job is to use the collections to talk about our story, and what we talk about is style.”
