As London Fashion Week passes and moves on to Milan, we check in on what the model crowd are up to away from the main cameras

1. London's best
Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn (who share the same birthday, 3 August) reunite in London town just in time for fashion week. 

Instagram | @karliekloss Ladies night in #LonDunn with my BFF4EVA. I never laugh more or feel more inspired and than when I am with this strong beautiful woman. #jourlieforever

2. Bollywood beauty
Feeling very much at home is Burberry favourite Neelam Gill, who walked the Ashish show with some good old Bollywood drama. Here's a close up of the amazing eye look.

3. Daily reminder
With the influx of fashion's jetset in town, it can be hard to keep your footing — but stick to your guns, know your worth and be yourself. Gill knows what's up.

4. Handy companions
Two great British names — jeweller Monica Vinader and model Amber Le Bon — go hand in hand to face London Fashion Week.

Instagram | @amberlebonofficial These sparkly @monicavinader beauties have kept me going all fashion week ...

5. Strip tease
British model Adwoa Aboah slayed at a fashion show staged at Sunset Strip, a strip club right in the heart of London's vibrant Soho district.

6. Crowd control
Gigi Hadid flies into Milan to kick of Milan Fashion Week, sending crowds into a frenzy.

Instagram | @maxmara As only she could, @gigihadid helped us kick off #MFW during a special event inside our Milan flagship. Wearing a #FW16 sequined coat and beige romper, she carried the new #BoBag, which will make its debut tomorrow during our live #SS17 Runway Show.

7. Moschino's beauty game takes centre stage
We're loving the cropped, coiffed hairdos Moschino put out, as modelled by Imaan Hammam.

8. A shoe-off
Those boots are definitely made for walking...or at least, lounging around with the likes of Ciara and Peter Dundas.
