Atelier Versace Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2012
This haute couture show was as Versace as Versace can be: the pastel chain mail, the hip-high slits, the scarf prints, the Medusa emblems, the bared skin. For colors, Versace favored nudes and jewel tones that matched the cocktail rings made from yellow diamonds, emeralds, and topazes the models wore on both index fingers. Short corseted dresses made from tarot-card-print silk laminated with PVC were cut into narrow lengths; bits of flesh were visible through the slits. Slashes on beaded evening dresses were sutured together with strands of crystals; another dress was patched together with silk chiffon lacing from pieces of leather that were hand-cut with tiny circles and hexagons.
