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.
