Haute Couture Week: Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace

Jennifer Lopez Versace 1 e1404752595449 Haute Couture Week: Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace %tag

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: Attending the Atelier Versace autumn/winter 2014 show on day one of Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris

Wearing: A strapless pure white Atelier Versace gown with thigh-high slit and one fully beaded trouser leg, accented with two metallic straps on the hip, from the Atelier Versace autumn/winter 2014 collection, teamed with an Atelier Versace bracelet and earrings, and silver Versace platform sandals

Verdict: I am just going to say it – I adore this look. There is something about this hybrid gown on Jennifer Lopez that just works.

On paper if you had seen ‘gown with a thigh-high split and one fully beaded trouser leg’ you would have thought that Donatella Versace was off-her-head but when you see in on a superstar like J-Lo, who just embodies what Versace is about, you can’t help but think it looks fantastic.

If it was in a darker colour I don’t think I would have liked it as much but the white looks so amazing against her skin-tone and really works with the glamorous styling of the gold jewellery, so OTT, so Jennifer Lopez, so Versace.

If the outfit wasn’t enough I can’t stop starring at her flawless face, her cheekbones are sculpted to perfect and her eyes are just wow, love it.

Are you as obsessed with Jennifer’s latest look as I am?

AW13 Campaign: Kate Moss Strips Off For Versace

VERSACE ADV FW13 WB04 AW13 Campaign: Kate Moss Strips Off For Versace %tagSo the sun may have been out today but the magical never-ending roller coaster of fashion keeps on going and the autumn/winter 2013 campaigns are already being unveiled. Earlier today I shared the fairytale Mulberry campaign starring the stunning Cara Delevingne on my Facebook page, which I adored with the gorgeous owls, but this Versace campaign really grabbed my attention with its stripped back approach, which is literally the case for Kate Moss.

Promoting the ‘Vunk’ collection, Kate appears nude except for three strategically placed colourful quilted Vanitas leather bags, and does it with style in the campaign shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Kate keeps on surprising me, I am not one to go crazy about her street style, I get it she has style, but I love that she keeps on booking these high-profile campaigns after 25 years in modelling, which makes me remember that she is 39, yep Mossy will be 40 in January.

Talking about the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“Versace campaign for Autumn/Winter 2013 is stripped back to the raw power of the clothes and models. There’s no set, no distraction, just the provocation, glamour and attitude of our fashion. Mert & Marcus genius transformed Kate and Saskia into these strong Versace characters.”

Well you can’t argue with Donatella – this is one amazing campaign. I love the contrast of the nudey Kate shots and the more punky styling of Saskia de Brauw’s images – both are sexy, striking and completely Versace for me.

Do you like the stripped back images and are you a fan of Mossy’s darker locks?

Oscars 2013: Halle Berry In Atelier Versace

Oscars halle berry Oscars 2013: Halle Berry In Atelier Versace %tagWho: Halle Berry

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom-made long-sleeved black and silver striped beaded Atelier Versace gown with a plunging neckline, teamed with drop earrings and a statement cocktail ring

Verdict: Halle Berry said “Donatella designed this just for me–her take on a Bond girl!” and wow, what a great interpretation.

For me this gorgeous dress has all the glamour of Versace, the sex appeal of a Bond girl as well as an Art Deco vibe, maybe Donatella is still being inspired by the Great Gatsby. But one thing for sure is that you can always count on Halle at big red carpet events and this look is no different – she really did sparkled in this beauty.

SS13 Campaign: Versace Does Post Apocalyptic Glamour

Versace SS13 ad 1 SS13 Campaign: Versace Does Post Apocalyptic Glamour %tagSo according to the Mayans the world was suppose to end today, I forgot all about it, but Versace obviously decided to do their own version of what an apocalypse would look like, and of course it would be glamorous and filled with half-naked gladiators.

For the spring/summer 2013 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus, Versace has brought together three iconic models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls and each one looks absolutely hot – especially Kate who is being flanked by three very hunky gladiators, Edward Wilding, Kacey Carring and Veit Couturier.

Of the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“To have three glamorous and iconic women like Kate, Daria and Joan in one campaign is not an easy feat. Mert and Marcus really outdid themselves, each image is composed like a work of art.”

This is one steamy campaign that I am sure for some will be a little too fake, or photoshopped, but come what do you expect from Versace – these images are so on brand for me and I love them – they are OTT, striking, and so, so sexy.

What do you think of Versace’s spring/summer 2013 campaign?

Versace SoHo Boutique: Melissa George In Versace

Versace Melissa George Versace SoHo Boutique: Melissa George In Versace %tagWho: Former Home & Away and Alias star Melissa George

Where: At a cocktail party hosted by Donatella Versace for the opening of the new Versace SoHo boutique in New York

Wearing: A black Versace skirt with cross details paired with a black knit top, a black Versace trench coat, velvet Versace heels, gold accessories and a cute black studded clutch

Verdict: Wow, Melissa George is looking stunning here in head-to-toe Versace. I love everything about this moody look – but the stand-out piece has to be the trench coat draped over her shoulders – seriously hot!!!

Who would have thought that the former Aussie soap star could pull off a fierce rock chick vibe? I have to be honest I am blown away by her look – she was definitely my best dressed out of the stellar celeb crowd that included models galore *see below*, as well as Alexa Chung, Jennifer Hudson, and Helena Mattsson.

Of course it couldn’t be a Versace party without a host of models – there were a lot from Tali Lennox to Leigh Lezark, and even one of the original supermodels Linda Evangelista was in the house, but my three favourite model looks has to go to Doutzen Kroes, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova.

Doutzen wore a gorgeous black Versace coat with flared skirt covered entirely in Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2012 collection; Coco went for the Versace’s little black dress with metallic detailing also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection; and Karolina looked divine in a black leather Versace bomber jacket with intricate floral detailing teamed with the matching pencil skirt.

Do you rate Melissa’s look? And which model gets your vote?

Paris Couture AW12: Atelier Versace Returns To The Catwalk

AW12AtelierVersace3 Paris Couture AW12: Atelier Versace Returns To The Catwalk %tag

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?

Couture Spring 2012: Atelier Versace – I Spy Oscar Gowns

AtelierVersace1 Couture Spring 2012: Atelier Versace   I Spy Oscar Gowns  %tag

Yesterday saw Donatella showcase her couture line Atelier Versace for the first time since 2004 at l’Ecole des Beaux Art in Paris with actresses Diane Kruger and Cameron Diaz spotted pick out their next red carpet dresses. I am so glad that she did a presentation as the collection was full of glamour, exquisite detailing and most of all it was nice to spy potential Oscar gowns for my best dressed list.

There were only 15 looks presented, but wow what a 15, with gorgeous eveningwear gowns treading the gold staircase with leather hot pants, corsets, and biker jackets. The colourway was just divine from gorgeous pearl grey hues, mixed in with vibrant golds, and my favourite designs were the vivid orange, and acid green and yellow shades, which looked amazing in the sculpted corsets with metal detailing, encrusted crystals, transparent lace and leather.

I just loved the 3D qualities to the waist, neckline, bust and shoulders, which will just be perfect on the red carpet and I am sure a Lady Gaga music video. I could also see this gold number being worn by Jennifer Lopez, maybe for a live show of American Idol? But I also think it if it could be reworked into a floor-skimming evening gown with chiffon train then Diane Kruger would be a vision at the Oscars.

My Oscar picks have to be these pearl grey gowns, which I think just have a gorgeous silhouette about them with the metal work embellishments. If Anne Hathaway is going to attend can you please try on this long-sleeved version, I love the shoulders, the sheer texture and that waist skimming metal work detailing.

I could see this shape dress in a more neutral colour being worn by Angelina  Jolie as well as Nicole Kidman, but I would love someone to give this vibrant orange a go.

Last word has to be given to those sky-high heels – how divine are these with the leather tongues detailing to the front.
