Versace Spring 2011

Versace’s Spring 2011 presentation showcased the Versace Greek motif as the focus for the prints on both the dresses and bags.

Sleek summery silhouettes glided down the runway presenting many opposites: Short dresses with slits against long fringed gowns.

Fun flirty exotic colourful prints and striped dresses against plain sexy dresses.

As someone who worships the house of Versace I found this collection to be very chic, sleek and modern. It was totally refined without losing strength and the trademark Versace sex appeal.

Key accessories included bags in contrasting materials which were decorated with the Versace Greek motif.

The wrap around the ankle heels replaced the towering platforms.

Front Row: January Jones

Favourites: Red dress with plastic geometric detailing and turquoise fitted one-shoulder dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Blake Lively, January Jones, Angelina Jolie, Kate Beckinsale, Ciara, Elizabeth Hurley, Michelle Yeoh, Charlize Theron, Cheryl Cole and Tinsley Mortimer

Who Wore Versace Better? Cassie or Carina Lau

Cassie strutted down the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala back in May giving us plenty of attitude in her Versace Fall 2010 gown.

Her thigh-high split gown has an asymmetrical embellished neckline, was paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a black VBH clutch and sexy strappy sandals.

Carina Lau wore the same dress to the “Detective Dee and the Mystery of Phantom Flame” Premiere during the 2010 Venice Film Festival on Sunday evening.

She showed off plenty of thigh allowing us to see her silver Versace heels.

Even thought I hate the hair Cassie wins for me.

Between the attitude, the make-up and the heels, she totally does justice to this Versace gown.

2010 Venice Film Festival “Detective Dee and the Mystery of Phantom Flame” Premiere & Photocall Carina Lau In Versace

Some of you may know I have a weakness for electric blue, so I was giddy with excitement to see Carina Lau wearing my favourite red carpet colour.

The Asian actress stood out on the red carpet wearing a Versace Fall 2010 gown to the “Detective Dee and the Mystery of Phantom Flame” Premiere during the 2010 Venice Film Festival on Sunday evening.

Her thigh-high split gown has an asymmetrical neckline which was embellished with silver crystals.

I love how her hair is pulled back so we can see all that detail and her gorgeous drop earrings.

Her look was paired with silver Versace heels.

Carina also wore Versace to the photocall earlier in the day.

Her black one sleeve Versace Fall 2010 dress has an exposed zipper and an asymmetrical hemline.

I love that we are seeing so much Versace on the red carpet lately.

Black Ferragamo pumps, a silver bracelet and her adorable bouncy bob completes this look.

2010 Venice Film Festival “Reign Of Assassins” Premiere – Pace Wu In Versace

Pace Wu was one of my favourites from the 2010 Venice Film Festival red carpet this weekend.

She looked outstanding at the “Reign Of Assassins” Premiere on Friday night.

Her one shoulder Versace Fall 2010 gown had my jaw dropping on the floor, like all Versace gowns should on the red carpet.

Her acid yellow gown with mirror panels was paired with a gold Versace clutch and Versace metallic gold sandals.

This isn’t an easy colour to pull off and to be honest I wasn’t sure we’d see it on the red carpet.

Pace wears it well considering the dress has so much going on with a split at the front and the back plus all those cut-outs.

Totally BDOTW worthy.

2010 Emmy Awards – Jenna Fischer In Versace

Blast From The Past Award
I love it when one of my favourites from past seasons make a reappearance on the red carpet.

At the 2010 Emmy Awards last night, Jenna Fischer gave us a blast from the past.

Her red Versace Fall 2007 strapless gown was originally presented as a halter on the runway.

The colour looks amazing on her, I love how simple yet elegant this gown is.

She accessorized really well adding ‘Diamond in the Rough’ jewels and a gold Raven Kauffman Couture ‘Garbo’ clutch to complete her look.

We first saw this dress worn by Claudia Schiffer back in July 2007.

“Going The Distance” LA Premiere – Kate Beckinsale In Versace

Kate Beckinsale looked beautiful as she walked the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the LA Premiere of “Going The Distance” last night.

The British actress wore a white leather Versace Resort 2011 mini shift dress.

I really like the black dotted pocket-flap details.

When you think of Versace you think for daring and sexy, but Kate knows how to take a downtown look and give it an uptown finish.

You know what coming next.

Why those shoes?

I know many of you have told me she has issues with her toes/feet, but why does her selection always have to look so heavy?

A cute ponytail, Baccarat jewels and an Armani clutch completed her look.
