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. Click to see some of our favorite looks from the first crop of shows.

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?

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!
