Donatella Versace Is Like, “Yeah, Whatever, We All Know I’m Not Even Real”

“I’m not like this genetically.”
— Shock! Awe! Donatella Versace admits at the Vogue festival that, unlike her pal Lady Gaga, she was not just born this way. True, she said as much in the context of using “tons of cream” and taking care of her skin and hair, but we can go ahead…

Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-6

The last of the big-name shows culminated last night after six days in Milan, with today’s events devoted to little-known up-and-coming Italian designers. Today marks the start of the most fashion-y fashion week of all: Paris! We’re summing up Milan with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, Prada, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, and Giorgio Armani, after the jump…

Love It Or Leave It: Chloe Moretz’s Wordy Dress

Chloe Moretz has the youth (she was born in 1997, you guys, how is that possible?) and attitude it takes to pull off even the funkiest looks, so I love it when she takes fashion risks on the red carpet. And I really loved this dress when I thought it was printed with a sort…

All Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. Couture collectors are willing to pony up the big bucks because couture collectio…

Well Played: Jessica Alba At The Versace Haute Couture Show In Paris

Jessica Alba looks fantastic pretty much always, so it comes as little surprise (to me, at least) that she happens to look particularly killer in a strapless leather dress. Seriously, if there ever existed a more daunting phrase in the unwritten fashion lexicon than “strapless leather,” I haven’t heard of it.

A Glamorous Glimpse At Donatella’s Average Day

Harper’s Bazaar is really bringing it with this “…In 24 Hours” feature (last month’s issue covered the Kaiser) and I’m loving it. I mean, where else are you going to get a first-person, day-long diary straight from the pens of fashion’s biggest bold-faced names? I think one of the primary reasons they thrill me i…

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mea…

Versace For H&M Inspires Fights In China

People, people, people. I know we all love a good deal, but is it really necessary to engage in physical fights with one another over H&M designer collaborations? That’s exactly what happened at one H&M location in China on the release of the new Versace for H&M collection. Chinese shoppers began lining up yesterday afternoo…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The Versace For H&M Fashion Event

Last night celebs, models and designers turned out to preview Versace’s new collaboration with H&M. But while the clothes coming down the runway were gorgeous, the ones on the backs of the audience were a mixed bag. Click through to see what we’re talking about. …

Versace For H&M: Will You Wear It?

H&M designer collaborations have been hit or miss over the years. Some — like the Viktor & Rolf collab — were absolute stunners, while others we had high hopes for (Lanvin, in particular) fell terribly flat. So we’re definitely a bit apprehensive about the new Versace for H&M collection that hits stores next month. First off,…

Yes, Versace Is Doing A Line For H&M

Donatella Versace–the most tanned woman in fashion and pretty much anything else–has announced she’s doing a collaborative diffusion line with H&M, despite announcing in 2008 that she’d nevah, evah work with the Swedish company. “I respect everyone who does it,” she said way back then. “But the reason I didn’t do it is because I…

Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory,” Solo Dance-A-Thon

In her new video for “Edge of Glory,” Lady Gaga doesn’t have a cadre of dancers or major outfit changes. Instead, it’s just her and a saxophone player on the abandoned set of Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” video. It seems that MC Skat Cat has left a window open, and Paula has left some of…

The Versace Family—Italian Mobsters?

The Versace family—a veritable Italian fashion dynasty—has seen its fair share of scandal and drama (deaths, unfortunate bouts of plastic surgery—we’re looking at you, Donatella). So the rumor that the Versaces are involved in the “’Ndrangheta,” which WWD describes as “the equivalent of the Sicilian Mafia,” actually seems believable. Apparently, an interview with a former…

Versace’s “Modelgeddon”: Scary? Hilarious? Both?

Are fashion videos supposed to mean something? We kind of feel like brands and artists haven’t exactly figured out what the medium is supposed to do or say. Take, for example, this clip made by Love magazine and Versace, which features models in a doomsday/end-of-the-world scenario. We keep expecting to see Bruce Willis pop u…

Modelgeddon Is Coming!

The latest entry into the fashion video game scene is “Modelgeddon” from Love magazine. A collaboration with the house of Versace, the short stars models Allesandra Ambrosio, Claudia Mason, Ana Beatriz Barros, and Julie Orden. One can assume the vision here is what would happen if the world came to an end and…

Lara Stone Goes Pink For Versace

Frisky fave Lara Stone is the star of a new commercial from Versace for their Versus fragrance, and we love it! Not only does it provide further evidence of the raging gap-toothed girl trend, but the spaz-tastic video by fashion photographer Craig McDean also totally makes us want to go to a disco.

Georgia Jagger Does Versace, Then Retires?

Georgia Jagger‘s what they’re calling “a real Versace girl.” (In Donatella’s words herself: “She’s smart, a strong personality, beautiful, full of energy … She’s perfect for this collection — a real Versace girl.”) Shot by Mario Testino, Georgia’s campaign for the label’s spring 2010 collection just came out, and the images prove that she’s moving…

Coke Taps Designers To Create Bottles That Pop

Coca-Cola undergoes yet another makeover—this time, with primo designers for charity. In order to benefit young women affected by the earthquake in Italy’s Abruzzo region, Coca Cola Light asked eight female designers to come up with fashion-branded bottles for a money-raising auction taking place in Milan later in the month. The results, like Missoni‘s signature…
