M.I.A. x Versus

wearepurple-mia-donatella-versaceVersus has always had an undeniably cool attitude built on the house of Versace’s legacy.

Creative director Donatella describes it as follows: “Versus Versace is like a revolution in fashion. It takes the DNA of Versace, and makes something completely new. Versus Versace is the future, and it’s only just beginning.”

For its latest collection the brand has collaborated with singer M.I.A. and based its prints on those of ‘Versace’ fakes found on market stalls.

“It’s always been part of the M.I.A. culture – to talk about bootlegs, and people that sell them or make them” the singer said, “So when I was approached by Versace, it just seemed like a good idea to take all that and reverse the cycle, get Versace to copy the bootleggers. And then for the bootleggers to copy Versace copying the bootleggers, and just to keep that cycle going. It was just to basically reconnect the cycle in a way that is, I think, only possible through what I can offer Versace in the collaboration. So it was about bringing the concept of M.I.A. and the concept of Versace together.”

The collection features a street-style inspired line of graphic prints. Gold medallions, the Greek key and the Versace logo are all blown up for a colourful fall outing.

You can shop pieces from the collection, including jersey dresses, leggings, T-shirts, a maxi dress, a backpack and sneakers, exclusively at Browns Fashion now in both womenswear and menswear.

Selena Gomez In Versus Versace JW Anderson Collection - Late Show with David Letterman

Selena Gomez was spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theater prior to her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ yesterday afternoon.

The young singer wore a Versus Versace J.W. Anderson Collection Resort 2014 look which consisted of a cropped long-sleeved black top with signature gold buttons at the shoulder and a black knee-length skirt with two slits at the front.

Keeping the black-and-gold theme going, she added Giuseppe Zanotti pumps plus a selection of gold Melinda Maria jewels, including large pyramid drop earrings and a three-stud ring.

I can’t say I’m a fan of the messy high-top braid but I do love her makeup, which included a rich orangey-red shimmering lip colour.

Do you love this look or are you still willing the crop-top trend to end?

Hailee Steinfeld In Versus Versace JW Anderson - Jimmy Kimmel Live

Looking very grown up, Hailee Steinfeld made a guest appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Wednesday to promote her latest movie ‘Romeo & Juliet’.

During the interview, Hailee shared with Jimmy an embarrassing moment while meeting Justin Timberlake at the premiere of ‘True Grit’ when she was 13 years old.

After the singer congratulated her on her performance in the film, the star-struck teen blurted out, “I’m actually more excited that you’re here, but the movie was awesome.”

She revealed her embarrassing moment wearing a Versus Versace JWA black slashed top with a matching black skirt accented with the brand’s signature gold buttons.

Styling her wavy tresses in a half-up, half-down style, she completed her look with black peep-toe booties.

While this look would be considered sexy with the cut-out details, the youngster still looks sweet and totally adorable.

Nina Dobrev In Versus Versace - Variety's Power of Youth

Nina Dobrev attended Variety’s Power of Youth event held at Universal Studios Backlot on Saturday in Universal City, California.

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress selected a Versus Versace Fall 2013 frock featuring split sleeves fastened by a double row of gold safety pins.

Gold Christian Louboutin T-bar pumps, Susan Foster jewels and a black-and-gold Amanda Pearl clutch completed the gold accents on her dress perfectly.

Nina can pretty much wear anything, but she really glows when wearing red. It always takes me back to her Donna Karan Emmys wow moment.

I would’ve loved this look even more had she opted for a sleek ponytail, but instead she left her brunette tresses to fall around her shoulders.

JW Anderson for Versus by Versace Collection Launch Party

Donatella Versace hosted an event at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of the JW Anderson for Versus by Versace collection.

Heidi Klum: The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge wore a lace-accented LBD from the Versace Spring 2013 collection with black pumps. My issue is not the revealing nature of her dress or her pumps, but her ghostly makeup.

Taylor Momsen: Perhaps Heidi was taking makeup tips from Taylor Momsen, who took to the red carpet sporting a paler complexion than usual with her trademark racoon eyes. I haven’t been a fan of Taylor’s style since she morphed into her ‘Gossip Girl’ character Jenny, but I have to say I love this harlequin Versace suit. Sometimes she takes the grunge too far, but this more polished look I can get on board with.

Hayden Panettiere: With most going for all-black, hard-edged looks, Hayden opted for a beige-coloured flirty frock from the Versace Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with nude pumps and a clutch which matched her dress.
