Milan fashion week kicked off in rock star style this week—literally. This morning Letizia Moratti, the city's mayor, presented Duran Duran members Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes, and Roger Taylor with a key to the city, honoring them for being 20th-century style icons. The band will play at the Teatro dal Verme tonight in a concert organized by the Camera Moda, Italian fashion's governing body.
