Atelier Versace Spring 2012

I died and went to heaven several times this morning during the Atelier Versace Spring 2012 presentation, which opened the Spring 2012 Couture season.

Karlie Kloss (my fave) was the first to gracefully navigate the tricky golden stairs in a form-fitting embroidered pearl-grey paillettes gown. The breath-taking gown with Chantilly lace panels on the side was encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

How she was able to walk down and then up the stairs to take her position at the side of the stairs in stacked heels I will never know, but she’s never looked more beautiful.

Fourteen more models followed in Karlie’s footsteps, equally smouldering with high blunt-cut ponytails, smoky eyes and full-on sexy face which J-Lo would be very proud of.

Speaking of J-Lo, there were many looks from this presentation with her name all over it.

I can see her wearing look 14 which was an outstanding strapless orange gown with an oval-shaped bodice that cuts away to reveal an open back. It is decorated with micro paillettes and Swarovski crystals for a dégradé effect.

We saw mini dresses with cut-out details and sculptural peplums, strapless gowns with gold metal discs sculptured into the bust, a leather biker jacket with leather floral appliqués paired with leather shorts with gold metallic inserts, and a yellow corset one-piece worn by Lindsey Wixon with gold metal inserts.

The colour palette for this collection was gold and silver in tones of champagne and pearl grey with pops of vivid orange, yellow and acid green.

Those vibrant pieces we just have to see on the red carpet at the Grammys next month.

Favourites: Orange strapless dégradé gown and acid-green lace bodysuit worn with Swarovski crystal high-waist skirt.

Attendees: Diane Kruger, Abbie Cornish and Cameron Diaz.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Nicki Minaj, Kate Beckinsale, Elizabeth Banks, Lea Michele, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Paz Vega, Gisele Bündchen, Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba, Diane Lane, Penelope Cruz, Fergie, Angelina Jolie and Sonam Kapoor

    Karlie´s pearl-grey gown is my fav. I can clearly see Angelina wearing it, almost sensing the same presence.

      I’d love to see Angelina going all out in the orange dress at Cannes. Seems she makes an concerted effort when there.

        Love the orange gown too, Eva Mendes came to mind somehow for me.

    It feels like forever since Karlie walked in a Versace show. I’m crushing over the gowns, especially the orange one and the one with the sleeves.

    Looove! I would like to see Beyonce wearing one of those green dresses.

    +1! Blake would totally wear the hell out of this one. Or maybe the Jolie, would decide to schock us & snap it right under her nose! lol *wishful thinking*

    As beautiful as it looks, it usually looks even better on the red carpet. I cna totally see teh liem green asymmetrical backless dress on Blake Lively. Even though it would be so predictable I would find it difficult to imagine on someone else.

    The burnt orange gown, with the golden rimmed bodice. I’d really like to see Sonam Kapoor wearing that one. I think it’ll suit her stature and it will make her look really modish. The dress by itself is awesome. I think it’s the color that makes it really stands out.

    I’m kinda over the sheer skirt thing, especially those rear views. Too easy to look tacky in them. However, love love love the candy colors green, yellow and orange.

    So happy you liked it, me too! Love the orange dress, hope to see it on the Oscar Red Carpet!
    ps. why Donatella Versace is wearing so muck black lately?
