PAST AND FUTURE: “I’m glad they flew me out here,” said rapper Future at a Calvin Klein party on Sunday night in Milan, following the brand’s men’s show. The Atlanta native, whose new album “Honest” will hit stores in March, got treated to a tour of the venerable 18th-century Palazzo Crespi.
Guests strolled through the gilded rooms admiring the world’s largest painting by Canaletto, eating risotto off a silver platter as a live piano rendition of “Moon River” seeped from the ballroom.

Future’s fiancée, the singer Ciara, was watching her step, careful not to trap her stiletto in the ancient floor heating system.
“I’m a tomboy. I’m always in his closet,” she said earlier at the show. “He shops more than me, and he doesn’t realize how well he does it.”
The couple is already planning the wedding. “It’s definitely happening this year, we’ve been going over dates together,” Ciara said, flashing her 15-carat engagement ring, custom-made by Avianne & Co.
