Flanked by nearly a dozen of the nation's most beautiful blue-bloods, Lady Kitty Spencer led the British invasion at the Dolce & Gabbana show on Sunday - but the group could barely manage a smile between them. 

The 27-year-old looked every inch the fashion princess as she held court at the centre of the formidable girl gang - who looked surprisingly glum - as they waited for the Italian designer's Fall/Winter Milan Fashion Week showcase.

Seated on her right was her close friend Emma Thynn, the very glamorous Viscountess Weymouth, 31. On her other side sat the four Moncreiffe sisters, Eliza, 23, Lily, 19, Idina, 26, and Alexandra, 21, whose lineage dates back 800 years. 

Pouting prettily to their right were the Manners sisters, Ladies Violet, 24, Alice, 22, and Eliza, 20.

Further down the row and out of shot were other British imports including Tatler cover girl Lady Sabrina Percy, 28, and Maddi Waterhouse, the teenage sister of fashion sensation Suki.

Aristocrats, young royals and celebrity offspring have become something of a fixture on the D&G front rows and fashion campaigns, with Lady Amelia Windsor, 22, among the others to have been given the call-up.

Many of these models were invited to walk in a special runway on Saturday night, which celebrated the Italian fashion house's evening wear collection ahead of the Pret-a-Porter show on Sunday.

The fashion extravaganza was a feast for the eyes with models including Hailey Baldwin, 22, daughter of Stephen and friend of the Hadid sisters, sent down the catwalk adorned in sumptuous silk, sequined and embellished garments and dripping in costume jewellery and crowns.

The wow-factor was completed by the addition of a dozen drones, which were used to carry D&G's latest collection of handbags down the catwalk, much to the delight of the style-savvy front row who snapped furiously on their mobile phones.

While some of the biggest names in fashion were in the room, there is little doubt that the British beauties stole the show. Here, FEMAIL takes a closer look at one of the poshest front rows in history...
