Jeff Goldblum and Kyle MacLachlan go on Prada’s runway

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Stars Jeff Goldblum and Kyle MacLachlan surprisingly showed up at the men's fashion week in Milan, where both went on the runway to Prada on Sunday.

They were among 10 Hollywood actors invited by the Italian fashion giant to showcase their fall-winter 2022 menswear collection, which offered a futuristic vision of workplace attire.

The cameos marked an optimistic note for a fashion week that has seen several brands - including Milan regular, Armani - cancel shows or return to digital presentations amid a rise in Covid-19 cases across Europe. Last week, Italy recorded its highest daily number of infections since the start of the pandemic, with over 220,000 new cases reported on Tuesday.

But Prada went ahead with its show at the Fondazione Prada complex, sending models down a sci-fi-inspired tunnel toward the zig-zag runway.

The first to show up was "Twin Peaks" and "Sex and the City" star Kyle MacLachlan, who wore a long coat over powder blue pants and shirt with matching gloves. He later took to Twitter to thank Prada's co-creative director Raf Simons, calls the opportunity to open the show "an honor."

A series of structured silhouettes and elevated fashion items followed with wide-shouldered blazers, leather jackets and parkas worn over silky soft overalls or paired with space age backpacks.

Two years into their partnership, Simons and creative director Miuccia Prada merged formal tailoring with high-end workwear to create what the brand called "reality uniforms, rematerialized in precious leather and silk technology as a sign of respect and value."

The label described actors as "reality interpreters, employed to reproduce the truth through their portrayals," and also invited several other well-known Hollywood characters to model at the presentation. Ashton Sanders from the Oscar-winning film "Moonlight" and "The Queen's Gambit" star Thomas Brodie-Sangster were among the celebrities who appeared in Sunday's show.

Goldblum, who is known for wearing colorful Prada things - including the flamboyant shirt he famously wore on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in 2018 - was the last to go. The 69-year-old appeared in a completely black outfit, including a dark overcoat with mohair edges and sleeves.
