Paris Couture AW12: Atelier Versace Returns To The Catwalk

It is hardly surprising that the likes of Angelina Jolie, January Jones, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lady Gaga have all turned to Donatella Versace’s couture line Atelier Versace for their red carpet, or in the instance of Lady Gaga airport appearances – as this is a line that just oozes glamour and sex appeal.

On Sunday night, Atelier Versace returned to the couture catwalk, don’t get me wrong I loved the spring/summer 2012 presentation, but these gorgeous gowns decked out with prints inspired by Tarot cards deserved their walk down the catwalk.

When I think of couture, I don’t know why but I think gorgeous gowns, red carpet gowns, and I always picture my favourite celebrities in them. For me this show was as Versace as Versace gets – the pastel colours, the hip-high splits, the old-Hollywood hair, the scarf prints, the Medusa emblems and the perforated leathers teamed with intricate lacing and beading – everything was glamorous and made for the red carpet.

I am already hoping that celebrity stylist are pulling the gorgeous gowns for their clients as I type this, I especially want to see Diane Kruger in the pale pink gown above, she would look incredible.

What do you think – could you see your favourite celebrity in one of these looks?
