Cover Loving: Vogue Italia Goes Retro For September


Vogue Italia revealed its September issue earlier this week and I am just loving the retro vibe of the cover photographed by Steven Meisel.

Starring model Doutzen Kroes, who is having a great month as she is also on the cover of Vogue Spain, Vogue China and Vogue Netherlands, the beauty has a touch of Shrimpton-meets-Bardot about her wearing a Prada gingham check dress and baker boy cap.

I am not sure what I love more – the 60s/70s styling, the beautiful facial close-up, I am in love with her eye make-up, or the retro feel to the cover with the muted colours and light flares. I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

What do you think of the Vogue Italia’s September cover?

Versace SoHo Boutique: Melissa George In Versace

Who: 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?

Cannes 2012: Milla Jovovich In Atelier Versace

Who: Milla Jovovich

Where: At amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Benefit at the Cannes Film Festival held at Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc

Wearing: A metallic silver and gold Atelier Versace gown with architectural corset and metallic structured boning, with a thigh-high split, from the spring/summer 2012 collection

Verdict: Wow, this is futuristic glamour at its very best, I love the shimmering colour of this grey-silver gown, but this dress needs someone like Milla who has the right amount of attitude to pull it off. I am so glad that we are finally seeing the spring Atelier Collection hitting the red carpet, I adored Jada Pinkett Smith’s orange beauty, but there is something special about this gown.

Versace also dressed Doutzen Kroes, who looked flawless in a white Versace gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, I just love the curved neckline; and Isabeli Fontana glowed in a strapless spring/summer 2012 Versace gown, the colour and the thigh-high split make this dress.
