“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 and read between the lines, right? But who even cares what her face looks like — despite her intimidating persona, Donatella is actually pretty rad, telling her star-struck audience at the event, “Right now, having you kids in front of me asking these questions, this is my proudest moment.” [Vogue UK]

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… Keep reading »

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 of pop art eye exam, but then I realized it’s actually a jumble of letters from the Versace logo. Now I’m torn. What do you guys think? Is her label-centric look tacky or fabulous? [Photo: Splash News]

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 collections are all handmade. We’ve already shown you the new collection from Raf Simons over at Dior, but here are the new looks from Giambattista Valli, Versace, Armani and Chanel. Check back here often for more amazing couture looks.

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.

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 is that they tend to recall the intro scene of “American Psycho,” which I find so delightful.

The segment followed Tom Ford, then Karl Lagerfeld, and I reveled in knowing the daily routines (and, I’m not going to lie, the products) of these design icons. I was beside myself this morning to find Donatella Versace as the column’s next subject. Keep reading »

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 mean we can’t look. The first day of couture week featured shows from Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior (currently helmed by Bill Gaytten), Chanel, Versace, and Alexis Mabille — and they did not disappoint.

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 afternoon at several Shanghai locations, and a few savvy (and wealthy) shoppers paid placeholders to hold their spots in line overnight. Annnnd that’s where the trouble began. Apparently some of the professionals didn’t handle it too well when someone tried to cut in front of them this morning. Keep reading »

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, Versace is a lot of look. A lot. Of. Look. High Versace Priestess Donatella Versace is herself a testament to the brand’s over-the-top loud style. But what’s helped Versace succeed is that her bold prints and overt sexiness have been tempered by high quality fabrics and textiles. So given that H&M’s line will be produced for a lower price point and with lower quality fabrications, well, this could spell trouble. What do you think? Would you wear it?
