Atelier Versace At Harrods London

Last night I went to Harrods in Knightsbridge, London to view the stunning Atelier Versace gowns on display.

The exact gowns as worn by Charlize Theron (Venice Film Festival, 2008), January Jones (2009 Emmy Awards), Kate Hudson (“Nine” London Premiere 2009), Drew Barrymore (Golden Globes 2010) and Shakira (Whitney Museum Gala 2009) are all on display for 1 week only.

I knew I was going to be blown away, but in person the gowns are even more breath-taking.

I was particularly fascinated by Drew Barrymore’s Atelier Versace one shoulder champagne silk chiffon gown. The gown has a visible nude corset underneath and those two amazing clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

The gowns are on display for customers to order, and for people like me who like to dream of one day walking up the Met Gala steps in a Atelier Versace gown *doesn’t want to wake up from dream*.

    i read many fashion-related websites and i can attest to the fact that only you do Donatella Versace justice.you even get me to try to look past her face (still working on it!). so i will say your dream will come true.you’re a good person( i deduce that from the way you run your website) and good things happen to good people.the first step was being lucky enough to see them and the next obvious one will be you in an atelier vesace.

    I am sooo flying to London this weekend to steal those gowns! Who wants to drive the get away car? :)

    I have a quick question FC, are there some celebs who actually get to keep the gowns or do they all give them back? I ask since I assume some celebs can afford them but it’s also obvious that some are just loaned. Is this the case with every couture gown, are they always given back?

    Do you also know what the ballpoint price tag on one of these gowns would be?

    • Fashion Critic April 1, 2010 at 16:16 #

      I would imagine it differs from celeb to celeb and designer to designer. Who really knows?

    Wishing I was in London after reading this….thks for sharing your dreamy visit to Harrods F.C.!

    Drew’s dress brought a lot of criticism when she wore it, but I was fascinated by the glass fringe trim right away. I’m so jealous that you got to see it up close! And I will keep my fingers crossed that your dream comes true.

      :D thanks Sharon

    Does someone know what kind of detailing has in the bodice the dress in the middle ? the one that Kate Hudson wore to the “Nine” premiere?

    • Alfredo April 2, 2010 at 10:33 #

      I believe it was made out of layers. Some with white leather with silver embroidery, another with the silver alone and linked together with some little metal bolts. It’s quite magnificent.

    FC!!! i just got back from harrods and writing first thing to you!!! the dresses were absolutely stunning. i always loved kate hudson’s dress, but after seeing them in person, i absolutely love Drew Barrymore’s!!! would totally buy it if i had that kind of money.
    ps: i asked the sales lady there and she said the dresses were about GBP 48,000 each!

        Awww…that is a shame. I think it’s because I went on the first night

    • Fashion Critic April 4, 2010 at 10:22 #

      Glad you got to see them. They are so amazing.

      Like you I totally fell in love with Drew’s gown. It’s now one of my favourites.
