Who Wore Atelier Versace Better? Donatella Versace or Eva Herzigova


Donatella Versace looked sensational wearing her own slightly modified Atelier Versace Spring 2009 nude paillette covered gown, to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner nearly two weeks ago.

Her gown didn’t have the same cut-out detail as the presented gown, which Eva Herzigova wore to the Looking For Eric premiere during Cannes Film Festival.

Eva’s make-up was to heavy, plus the fuschia peep-toes don’t work for me, so Donatella wins this.

White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

What a magnificent way to start the week, with an amazing burst of colour.

Michelle Obama wore a Michael Kors magenta wool crepe gown, with an exquisite necklace, which had a magenta matching floral piece.

This is the second time within a week, Mrs. Obama has worn Michael Kors. The black gown she wore to the TIME 100 Gala last Tuesday in New York, was also by the American designer.

Kerry Washington arrived wearing a navy blue pleated J.Mendel Fall 2009 strapless gown, with stunning gold accessories.

The gown had a tiered peplum at the waist, and a mermaid hem.

I don’t think this is the most flattering dress for Kerry – especially from the long shot – but she still makes it work.

This taupe one-shouldered Versace Pre-Fall 2009 gown is simply gorgeous, as it skims the well toned body of Demi Moore.

Her look was complete with a matching Roger Vivier clutch, with sparkles with the embellished details on her gown.

Katie Holmes opted an ivory ensemble, including a blazer, satin top, and full-length skirt, from her co-designed Holmes-Yang collection.

Her event appropriate look was accented with gold Boucheron accessories.

Eva Longoria wore a frothy gown, with tiny spaghetti straps in this seasons hottest colour -nude.

The Ports 1961 gown is outstanding, but it feels like it’s completely swamping Eva’s tiny frame.

Mariska Hargitay wore an off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 black, white and grey lace chiffon gown, covered in floral appliqués.

Her sweeping updo, gave this gown the final touch of elegance, to complete this perfect look.

Alicia Keys wore a black and white Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2009 cocktail dress, with the signature black criss cross detail on the bodice.

Alicia lets the dress speak for itself, by only adding a black clutch to complete her look.

Amber Tamblyn would have been the center of attraction, wearing a vivid red Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown.

I love the way the ruffles cascade down the gown, plus the ruby drop earrings, but she lets herself down with her hair.

Natalie Portman wore a very interesting black Balenciaga Fall 2004 halter-neck gown.

The halter part is attached to the rest of the dress with 2 very thin straps.

Keisha Whitaker arrived with her husband Forest Whitaker, also wearing a vivid red gown, from the Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

Rashida Jones wore a LBD with flutter sleeves, and a ruffled detail going across the skirt.

She completes her look with a silver jewels, and Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals.

Say what you want about Donatella Versace, for me she’s always impeccable.

This outstanding paillette covered nude self designed halter gown, is case in point. Already a contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

Elizabeth Banks opted for a very subtle, understated look, wearing a teal one-shouldered Alberta Ferretti gown, accented with a silver bejeweled belt, which matched her leaf earrings and box clutch.

Tyra Banks’ look was too office chic for me. In a room full of luscious gowns, I expected much more from her.

I will say that her hair is a huge improvement from the Met Gala last week.

Glenn Close was so graceful wearing a white Giorgio Armani Spring 2005 gown, covered with black Asian text.

Wanda Sykes was one of the guest speakers of the night. She arrived in a navy blue silk suit, and her trademark hairstyle.

She had the guests rolling on the floor with laughter with her risky jokes. You can watch the video’s here.

Fashion Fringe 2009 Launch Party

We all know that Donatella Versace never wears a runway dress, instead she modifies pieces and totally makes them unique to her.

In this case her white asymmetrical dress is a asymmetrical gown and a white strapless dress, which were both presented during her Spring 2009 collection, merged into one dress.

Model Jacquetta Wheeler wore a simple black tank top and gold buckled belt, with her Luella Spring 2009 skirt.

The gorgeous purple skirt with a gold pattern is with pleated frills, to give a whimsical feel to her overall look.

Natalia Vodianova could have really done without the leggings with her taupe coloured Versace Spring 2009 mini dress.

Like Katie Holmes’ recent Jason Wu look, the leggings totally ruin this for me.

I have done a post on The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes, and many of you have expressed a need to do a similar post for Claudia Schiffer.

Yes her hair is glossy and gorgeous, but it never changes. Even in her latest Salvatore Ferragamo ad campaign, her hairstyle remains the same.

The model posed wearing a black pant suit, and a polka dotted blouse. Her nude accessories really stood out from her dark look.

I must say I am very surprised that both Natalia and Claudia weren’t at the Valentino New York premiere, they usually follow him everywhere.

2008 Whitney Museum of American Art Gala Red Carpet

Finally someone has worn this multicolour lightning bolt and cityscape print Versace Fall 2008 dress.

I really enjoyed the selection of these dresses that were presented by Donatella, and I am happy Becki Newton has worn this purple one.

She wore her unique tank strapped dress with Versace black heels.

Christina Ricci opted for a backless Gothic-style grey Atelier Versace Fall 2008 dress, which could not be more perfect for her.

I love the embroidery detail.

Actor Patrick Dempsey, who is the current face of Versace Fall 2008 menswear, posed with Donatella Versace, who as always looks a knock-out with her body to die for.

Of course her stunning lilac gown is totally unique and has not been seen on the runway.

Despite the simple and non-revealing (for her) nature of Mariah Carey’s dress, I feel very underwhelmed looking at her in it.

Emma Roberts looks very grown up in this black shimmering strapless mini Versace bustier dress, with Jimmy Choo heels.

Jane Krakowski dares to wear this Versace Fall 2008 dress that has also been worn by Donatella herself, but totally look amazing in it.

The actress wore her midnight blue wet-look dress, with gold Louboutin’s.

Juliette Lewis’ Versace Fall 2008 fuchsia heels are working better for me than the beige Versace dress.

The dress feels a little tame for the wild star.

For the first time ever I feel that a dress works better on the runway than on Helena Christensen. I really don’t think this Versace Fall 2008 asymmetric lace dress works on her.
