Runway To Sidewalk Allegra & Donatella Versace In Versace

The reason Rihanna was all dressed up in Gareth Pugh this week, was because she was headed to Allegra Versace’s 23rd birthday party at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York.

Allegra wore a neon pink Versace Fall 2009 long-sleeved dress with a shimmering nude clutch, and nude suede heels.

You’ll notice that much like her mother’s Versace pieces Allegra dress is slightly modified.

The silver detail on the waist of the runway version is replaced with a pink satin panel.

Donatella obviously past down her wisdom of modifying pieces to her daughter, as the designer does this with every piece she wears.

In this case she has modified this stunning white zipper strapless Spring 2009 dress into a one-shoulder dress.  A tiny change yes, but one that makes her stand out from everyone else who owns this dress.

The designer completes her look with a pair of slate grey platform heels from her own Fall 2009 collection.

    I think it’s the first time I see Allegra in a bright colour. The dress is gorgeous and she’s looking good :) Her mother is as perfect as ever.

    As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder, I have to congratulate Allegra as she is looking much healthier these days. It doesn’t look like she’s completely out of the danger zone, but any progress is amazing. Kudos.

        Allegra looking very sick…
        There something not right with Donatella’s face (and i tried to be nice saying that).

    I love how Donatella always modifies her design to suit her, initially I liked the strap on her white dress, but it looks awkward compared to the runway version.

    Donatella seems to wear clothes well. She drastically ruined her face, however.

    Allegra as terrible posture, though.

    I do so like the Miu Miu Leather Messenger Bag & Chloe Buckle-Embellished Leather Boots. Now they would look quite delightful to wear together.

    That pink dress is the embodiment of the middle-aged vibe Donatella achieved with that collection. What is it doing on a 23-year-old girl?

    Allegra still looks very ill to me, I hope she can sort things out…
    Besides that, awesome dresses. Not sure whether I like the modificated versions better than the runway ones though!
