Front Row @ Versace Pre-Fall 2019

Front Row @ Versace Pre-Fall 2019

Pre-Fall collections are perhaps seen as the less interesting or sexy of all the collections presented, but now it seems that they are just as important at Fall and Spring, with big budget shows and A-list front rows.

Following Dior Men and Valentino last week, Versace presented their Pre-Fall 2019 collection in New York City on Sunday (December 2).

Diane Kruger: What a way to showcase your post-baby figure, in a Versace Spring 2019 mini no less. I can’t say the chunky belt is working for me here, but she’s still looking every inch a yummy mummy.

Ciara: While this Spring 2019 Versace suit showcases the brand tailoring, I would’ve loved something a bit more extravagant from Ciara, but the Versace medallion necklace and ruffle hem did prevent this from being a snooze.

Blake Lively: The actress shelved her favoured suit for an iconic Versace chainmail dress from the Spring 1999 collection. I love the ’90s spirit imbued in this look from the dress to the bountiful curls. I just wish she’d eased up on the jewels.

Uma Thurman: The actress looked very chic in her custom-made Atelier Versace look. And it’s good to see her in a colour other than black or white for a refreshing change.

Lupita Nyong’o: As you know I have been dying for Lupita to bring back the colourful looks she’s well known for, so you’d think I would be happy about this Resort 2019 offering. No. From the waist down she lost me.

Sara Sampaio: I love this Spring 2019 Versace look for its ode to Cher in ‘Clueless’.

Winnie Harlow: The model was alluring in a Versace Resort 2019 sheer number.

Olivia Palermo: If you had asked me to pick out a Versace look for Olivia, I may have struggled, but the fashionista had no such problem picking out the perfect look to suit her preppy style, pairing a plaid Versace skirt from the Fall 2018 collection with a simple cardigan.

Paris Jackson: Trust Paris Jackson to find most boho inspired look from Versace’s Spring 2019 collection.  You may not like it, but she’s rocking the hell out of this jumpsuit and cropped shirt combo.

Kim Kardashian: The reality star wore a vintage-inspired, custom-made, pink Atelier Versace mini dress made of Swarovski crystal metal mesh. Yep, it’s a look that’s unfamiliar, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Teyana Taylor: Now this is a sheer look I can fully get on board with. This Spring 2019 look has the perfect mix of pretty and badass.

Mary J Blige: Much like Ciara, I wanted the Queen of Hip Hop Soul to have gone a bit harder.

La La Anthony: Between the purple hair and the printed boots, it’s a good thing that La La kept her dress simple.

Tracee Ellis Ross: I have fully embraced Tracee’s style this year, but have to say, I’m not onboard with this Versace Fall 2018 velvet dress. It’s not really that flattering on her.

Daniela Braga: This Versace Fall 2018 look was perhaps one of my favourites on this red carpet. Elegant, chic and oozing plenty of Versace flavour.

    I only like Olivia Palermo. Uma Thurman looks good, too. The rest is just a lot of celebrities with unflattering clothes.
    Diane Kruger looks great but I find the dress unflattering on the breasts.
    My idea is that at first sight they all look quite well but then you realize they chose the wrong clothes for their body types or got the styling wrong.

    One day I want to be like Diane Kruger and somehow weave a spell so taut that I can literally wear assorted candy wrappers and get praise and approval.
    This is one of the most embarrassing sets of photos/red carpets I’ve ever seen.

    Loving Uma, more color please!

  6. Jerusa Herrera December 3, 2018 at 9:40 pm #

    What should we call this? Nightmare on the runway! Bad, ugly, tacky…

    Kim look seems to be “inspired” by Naomi Campbell @ the Victoria’s Secret 2003 show. So original.

    The first row is awful and sadly, it doesn’t get much better with the other looks. A lot of these ladies deserve better outfits than those.

    Uma and Ciara are the only ones who don’t make me want to throw up ?

  10. phee December 3, 2018 at 5:50 pm #

    Umas passable. but thats it.
    I can’t believe how sad Diane looks.

    Do you hear the sirens? Because this red carpet is a TRAIN WRECK!

    • Hermoine December 3, 2018 at 5:16 pm #

      Ok that was funny

    Most of these looks are awful. Diane Kruger straight up looks like a street walker here and most of the rest are abysmal. You know you have hit rock bottom when Kim Kardashian is one of the classier dressers at an event. Olivia Palermo and Uma Thurman look good. Mary J Blige should burn those boots and Tracee Ellis Ross should throw her dress and Lupita Nyong’o should add her skirt and shoes to that bonfire.

    Uma’s coat is nice. Diane, Paris and Teyana look positively ridiculous. Everyone else is just a tacky tacky mess. Worst red carpet I can think of. Kim had her girls done again, didn’t she? I have never seen such a plastic looking woman, other than her sister Kylie.

  14. Marina December 3, 2018 at 3:51 pm #

    Jesus… Uma looks decent and that’s it.

  15. The original AB December 3, 2018 at 3:37 pm #

    Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo’s looks are a personal worst. Teyana Taylor and Paris Jackson are WDOTY candidates. To me only Uma Thurman looks good.

    I’m actually shocked looking at that first row, because those women especially, usually deliver. I like no one here.

    Wow, so many awful looks. Daniela is my only pick. I would have really liked Sara’s look with a full length top instead of the body chain.

  19. Giada December 3, 2018 at 2:09 pm #

    I mean… que le f**k…

  20. alvarospain December 3, 2018 at 2:09 pm #

    Daniela Braga is cool.

  21. Cris December 3, 2018 at 1:57 pm #

    Kim is actually one of the very few who looks the least tacky…that says a lot about this carpet.

  22. Iva December 3, 2018 at 1:50 pm #

    What a mess!

    Uma is the best one here.

    I like Daniela’s outfit, but not the hair&make-up.

  23. Lashae December 3, 2018 at 1:31 pm #

    I think most of the looks are really bad, I only like Uma and Daniela

    Dear God. This is the worst red carpet in recent memory. Is this all that Versace stands for?
