Milan Fashion Week is in full swing!

On the Italian fashion establishment's first day of shows, the runways were filled with statement making beauty including pumped-up pompadours, strong brows and come-hither, smoky eyes.

And as the top fashion players showcased their highly-anticipated designs, there was a standout hair trend: updos. Models paraded up and down the catwalk in groovy, side chignons with sideswept bangs, Elvis-esque pompadours, and Sunday school like buns accentuated with woven headbands.

Read on for the details on three bellissimo updos from day two in Milano.

Enrico Coveri:
Italian designer Francesco Martini Coveri sent lythe ladies down the runway in his usual brightly colored and funky prints and patterns. Loosely wave bangs and slightly undone, side chignons added a polished, yet playful touch, while flirty lashes and a nude pout made the Coveri girl such a tease.

Fendi: Keeping in tune with Fendi's affinity for furs, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi unveiled a ladylike collection roughened up a bit with an interesting use of texture. And the beauty team perfected a hairstyle that instantly conjured up memories of Elvis and his hunka hunka volumized updo. Peachy, bronzed cheeks and coral lips softened up the look.

Prada: Miuccia Prada's Fall 2010 womenswear collection embodied the demure spirit of the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis with statuesque models donning artful sheaths and trenches and chunky cable knit sweater skit sets with stacked pumps. Large buns with matching brunette and blonde woven headbands rounded out the geek-chic.
