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 work very hard to put the Versace line in the luxury section. I think to put the Versace line in H&M would confuse the brand.” But my, how things have changed. There’ll be around 40 pieces for women and 20 for men. And judging from the look on the left, we’ll be buying — will you? Watch Donatella talk about the new line after the jump! [Global Grind]

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 her old ’90s Versace lying around — because Gaga is decked out in a very vintage-y Versace bodysuit and shirt for the entirety of the video. So much sass! So much skunk hair! Can you stand it? Check out the video after the jump!

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 member of the Mafia-like org has surfaced, and states that the family has some sort of tie to the ‘Ndrangheta (yeah, we have no idea how to pronounce that), and even that Gianni Versace’s 1997 murder was somehow linked to financial debts the designer owed the mob. Of course, the Versace family and company denies all the accusations. So, who knows if it’s really true? At the very least, someone should write a juicy thriller based on this premise!

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 up to save the day. (Alas, alas.)

What do you think? Funny? Terrifying (for reasons other than the scene itself)? Cool? [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

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 models were superheroes. They would sprawl sexily in the streets while we’d run for cover. Keep reading »

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. And writhe around on the floor. Does it make us want to buy Versus? Hmm. Maybe. Maybe not so much. [Fashion Gone Rogue] Keep reading »

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 in a more professional direction. The teen model has had a real mixed bag year, both inciting controversy with her topless Hudson Jeans ad and gaining recognition by being honored with the Model of the Year Award. With the unveiling of this Versace ad, you’d think Jagger would keep the momentum going, but things are actually slowing down—she’s taken leave of the business for a while to concentrate on school. (Be cool! Models stay in school. Besides, everyone else is quitting their jobs!)

Of course, whenever models announce they’re “quitting,” you know that’s really code for “I’ll be back in, like, five months.” So you can probably expect to see more of Georgia Jagger—just not right away. [Fashion Gone Rogue, Vogue UK]

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 print, Blumarine’s rose petals, or Marni’s geometric designs, are a bit mesmerizing to look at. Other designers and fashion houses involved in the project include Donatella Versace, Alberta Ferretti, Etro, Fendi, and Moschino.

Hits the spot. Check out a few more pics after the jump! [WWD via Nitrolicious] Keep reading »
