Alice in Ghettoland

Milan Fashion Week might have just started but Philipp Plein may have just thrown the runway party of the month. He showed snapback caps, gold chains, laced up sandals, thigh-high slits, heavy embellishments, sexy dresses, and jacquard pieces against a backdrop of a set that resembled a lot like Fergie's M.I.L.K $ music video.

So much went down last night but we've got it all here for you to see.

Fergie (yes, Fergie) performed at the show
The singer rolled up on the runway in the passenger seat of a convertible car (with its roof down, of course) while her crew rocked out to her singing of Getting Over You in the backseat. Later on, she continued with Fergalicious and Boom Boom Pow. Don't you wish you were there to see all this?

Fat Joe performed too

There was a flying carousel of models
Because what better way to prepare your models for the catwalk, right?

There was also a newspaper man, an ice cream truck, a car wash and a marching band
Everyone knows you can't have a Candyland theme without an ice cream truck. But Plein added his own twist: a car wash with a crew of male models ready to serve.

Paris Hilton walked the show
Dressed in a black gown with thigh-high slits, and gold chains paired with laced up sandals, the hotel heiress sauntered down the runway, looking like she owns it. And own it, she did.

Let's not forget the giant gnome with the word 'Pimp' painted on it
If this isn't a great way to greet your guests, then we don't know what is.
