A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)

This week, the Versace x H&M lookbook was finally released. Thankfully, it did not disappoint in any way! The 50-piece collection features dresses, skirts, leggings, scarves, handbags, shoes, belts, menswear, jewelry, and even homeware. Impressively, many of the prints, products and palettes seem to have been drawn almost straight from the archives. Value for money, in my eyes!
That said, it isn’t going to translate as ‘value‘ if we go out and buy everything at once (…note to self). Above, I have compiled some of my favourite pieces that I believe will work both alltogether and also add something special to many outfits when separated. Characteristic Versace: on the cheap (I can’t wait)!
If The Little Mermaid (aka my homegirl Ariel) were a fashion designer with extreme talent, I have a feeling her pieces would look very similar to the Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Versace.
The Italian label chose to go on a seafaring adventure much unlike the iconic designs that are rumoured to have been compiled for the brand’s upcoming collaboration with H&M. Not that a fresh take on things is a negative. The plissé, seahorses, lucite, starfish, and studs sold a story of sexy, luminescent, underwater rock and roll. Also, the bountiful and supernaturally bouncy blow-outs – courtesy of Guido Palau – were the best of any show so far. It was trademark Donatella with a twist. View Post
Love her or not, Lady Gaga is an indisputable style icon. She just never lets a camera down. Last night, Miss Stefani Germanotta graced ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ as a guest judge. Not only did she propel her relationship by donning one piece of Atelier Versace, oh no, but she decked herself in the brand from head to toe.
As a compliment to her pop art-inspired make-up look, she wore a gorgeous 2-button red jacket covered with the signature Versace Medusa emblems and dragon print, as well as matching Atelier Versace bell bottom pants, red military hat and 12-inch red leather platform boots (one of which she threw on stage, overwhelmed, after Sasha and Melanie danced).
That. Is. A. Lot. Of. Colour. (It’s okay, it’s Leighton Meester!) For Seventeen magazine’s impressively-styled February cover, Leighton is rocking a dress by her designer favourite, Versus. Among many other pieces from the Versace diffusion line, there is a gorgeous shot where she has her body on a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung shoes, a Chris Benz jacket, and Milly shorts and top. Why did the fashion blow when I was Seventeen? View Post
