Milan Fashion Week has officially kicked off.

And while we're still pumped up from the amazing (and sometimes crazy) hairstyles and makeup that models wore down the runways in New York and London, we're getting excited as the Italian fashion establishment makes their beauty statements.

From extreme pompadour updos with chic hair accents to fresh faces with standout brows to luxurious waves barely covering come-hither, smoky eyes, so far, fall beauty at Milan Fashion Week is all about making a statement.

Read on for the details on three bellissimo looks from day one in Milano.

Elena Miro: For this classic, plus-size brand's fall show, voluptuous divas strutted in shimmering and rich shades of burgundy, gold and black -- with sexy librarian-esque hair and makeup complementing the high-waisted skirts, curve-hugging sheaths, and tailored suits. Elegant hair sticks added a bit of flair to the pompadour updos, while berry stained lips and clean, arched brows rounded out the look.

Cristiano di Cristiano Burani: Cristiano Burani's fall collection was definitely on edge with sexy leather details, sheer prints, and thigh-skimming minis. And the beauty team perfected a look that added a touch of class with an updated take on the Robert Palmer slickback and makeup that was simple, yet striking with bold eyebrows and contoured cheeks.

Seduzioni Diamonds: Italian actress-designer Valeria Marini unleashed tons of sex appeal onto her fall runway with extravagant furs, velvet gowns and provocative lingerie. Keeping in with the sultry spirit, the hair and makeup was all about polished waves, bright red lips and a smoky eye done up in blue shadow.
