After the Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture show back in January I made my way to the Atelier Versace Spring 2010 presentation which was held at a hotel in Paris.
Upon arrival I was informed that the viewing was confidential, so I wasn’t able to share it with you.
On Friday the collection was uploaded onto Versace.com, so finally this amazing collection can be seen.
At the presentation the dresses were on mannequin’s, so the beautiful Kasia Struss helps bring these looks to life for me.
On my Facebook page I asked you to start picking your red carpet favourites, and I wasn’t surprised that you picked Beyoncé, Shakira, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway, Zoe Saldana, Kate Hudson, Christina Aguilera, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Gisele Bündchen, Rihanna and Britney Spears (if she ever gets her mojo back).
All very worthy candidates.
I have so many favourites their is no point listing them, but the most interesting was the black dress above.
I can’t wait to see this particular gown on the red carpet because it absorbs light, so on a sunny day in Cannes or when the spotlights are directed on this dress at the Met Gala, the skirt will reflect different colours.
All the looks are accented with either Swarovski crystals, hologram discs or zippers.
What floored me about this collection is that is so very Gianni. His spirit and influence was evident in every piece.
It’s has that sexy, edgy sophistication that made me fall in love with fashion back in the 80s.
The countdown begins to the first star to wear it on the red carpet. I already can’t wait.
