Shane Warne is best known for his cricketing prowess, but he is also a connoisseur of women's clothing who knows his Cavalli from his Chanel.

Warne yesterday completed his transformation from beer-swilling bogan to man-about-town metrosexual when he sat front row with Liz Hurley at the Roberto Cavalli show during Milan Fashion Week.

"Shane often chooses my clothes and nine times out of 10 he chooses Cavalli," Hurley said from the front row.

And the transformation is complete: Shane Warne and Liz Hurley at Cavalli's s/s 2013 show.

Wearing a black suit and purple tie to co-ordinate with Hurley's purple and teal Roberto Cavalli dress, the king of spin appeared unperturbed by paparazzi mobbing the lovebirds, preferring instead to put on his best poker face and peruse Cavalli's new spring-summer offering.

The show opened with a whiteout of shredded flares and white beaded drop-waist shifts in white and cream before segueing into Cavalli's signature exotic prints and skins.

Cavalli has been sure that more is more since he started his label in the early 1970s, and this week the designer known for his look-at-moi creations did not disappoint.

A nude floor-length leather dress incorporated intricate laser cut-outs, bold neon-green and peach graphics appeared on sharp-shouldered suits, and leopard spots and tiger stripes featured on negligees that were not for the faint of heart.

Cocktail dresses were slashed at the waist to reveal toned midriffs and backs, and scattered with bugle beads and tiny crystals.

Sundresses had lace insets at the neck and back, perfect for showing off golden skin in the summer, and jewel-encrusted cropped tuxedo jackets paired with shorts offered an evening look for the more adventurous.
