Christopher Kane had floral and jeweled touches, Fenty x Puma showcased bright neon and body-con pairings, and Giambattista Valli’s models strutted down the catwalk in romantic offerings. Though they — and many other runway shows — differed greatly in fashion, they had on thing in common, an abundance of gorgeously highlighted skin!
