Yesterday, Italian fashion house Versace opened Paris Haute Couture at the iconic Ritz Paris to showcase their autumn/winter 2012 Atelier Versace collection. Last season the label returned to the couture schedule with a presentation, which included some incredible gowns that we’ve already seen on the red carpet, but last night they opened Couture week in style with a catwalk show, if I do say so myself back to wear they belong!!!
I am going to be blogging more on the collection, I don’t want to tease but it was a gorgeous pastel display of utlra-sexy gowns that I am sure the front row celebrities including Jessica Alba, Lea Michele, Fan Bing Bing, Elizabeth Banks, and Christina Hendricks were picking out their next red carpet appearance looks from.
My favourite celebrity look had to be the Jessica Alba’s incredible strapless black leather Versace cocktail dress enriched by black swarowski crystals from the autumn/winter 2012 collection – how divine is this edgy dress and so unexpected from Jessica. I really think that Jessica should wear studs more often!!!
It was tough to choose my favourite look as I also adored Fan Bing Bing in her bright yellow Versace cocktail dress also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, I love the silver chain-metal detailing to the front and side.
Also gracing the front row was a demure Lea Michele, who actually looked good in a bright orange Versace cocktail dress with grey leather inserts on the front, but what got me was how tiny she is next to Cory Monteith.
The OTT and totally Versace award has to go to M.I.A. who wore a vintage Gianni Versace printed outfit consisting of gold printed lycra leggings, a gold printed top and leather jacket.
Who gets your best dressed award?
