Like Zuhair Murad, Atelier Versace had a huge presence on the red carpet 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 9) in Beverly Hills, California, and that’s excluding the men I have added to this list.
I’ve already covered Jessica Alba, so here are the rest.
Tessa Thompson: The ‘Men In Black’ star had the biggest win of all the looks presented by Versace.
She looked breath-taking in this Atelier Versace lamé draped gown which had a going on with the three contrasting fabrics and shades of mint; the different weights of the pleats, and of course the bondage belts.
This is giving me glam gladiator. The belts really sell this look to me; bringing both strength and heritage.
Versace black leather sandals from the Spring 2020 collection were the perfect style to accompany this look.
I was confused by the vintage Versace bag until I read Tessa’s Instagram post.
She shared that she had snacks in it. And as someone who is constantly hangry, and needs to snack on a regular bases, the bag ain’t so bad.
Azza Fahmy jewels completed her look.
Paris Jackson: I don’t know about you, but Paris Jackson doesn’t spring to mind when I think of the Versace woman.
She wore a gorgeous pink and aqua green tones Atelier Versace ball gown with an exceptional tulle skirt that was enriched with over 180 m of degradé – ethically sourced – feathers, which I was told were applied one by one by hand, yet my first reaction was, I wish someone else – literally anyone else – had worn this.
She doesn’t sell it to me.
Olivia Munn: By stark contrast, Olivia Munn for me is the archetypal Versace woman.
She wore a one-shoulder Atelier Versace draped gown that doesn’t scream sex appeal, but since it’s so innate, I still found myself swooning.
Like Tessa, the gown possesses an exceptional bustier that’s enriched with black bondage belt accents embellished with gold-tone hardware which made her look so statuesque.
Jimmy Choo ‘Max’ platform sandals and David Yurman jewels completed her look
Cynthia Erivo: Wearing her second Atelier Versace look of the night. My first reaction was that she picked the right look for each event.
The main event gown showed the classic side of Versace’s exuberance, whereas this one has a “we came to party” vibe.
You’ll either love the lilac and aquamarine together or wish it had been all of one colour. If so, which would you have preferred?
Expertly constructed in the moulage draping technique, I love how the Swarovski crystal enriched Versace sandals matched one side of her gown.
Barbara Palvin: This pale pink Atelier Versace asymmetric gown couldn’t have been a more perfect fit for her skin tone.
I was very intrigued by the nude and white tone Swarovski crystal embroidery which I was told follows the fantasy shape of a wild horse’s mane.
She completed her look perfectly with a pair of Versace blush sandals.
Dylan Sprouse: The actor was looking dapper in his bespoke Atelier Versace tuxedo.
The tailored blazer was of course the highlight, with embroidered Swarovski patches depicting heritage crown motifs.
Swarovski crystals were also found on the side band of his trousers.
Black leather Versace cowboy boots completed his look.
Hailey Bieber: This won’t be to everyone’s liking, but I love how this Atelier Versace gown was constructed with the sheer top under the exceptional micro elements that brought this look to life.
KJ Apa: This classic Versace tuxedo might seem very simple but not only is it masterfully tailored, it’s also enriched with heritage gold Medusa buttons.
David Yurman jewels completed his look.
Jon Hamm: After her experimentation at the Tom Ford show – which went arwy – the ‘Mad Men’ actor returned to elegance in a made-to-measure Atelier Versace tuxedo.
You know how I feel about velvet, so when it came to this look, I was swooning over the single-breasted burgundy blazer embellished by satin shawl lapels.
