    Donatella certainly avoided the versace cliché when creating this understated collection, yet somehow, if by versace magic she managed to pull it off once again. It was as if she's quite literally thrown the trash out and welcomed something fresh in.
    Cream’s, light sand, perfect white and black dominated the show, held together by belt after belt, zip after zip.
    Models swayed down the runway in their 10cm heels (barely touching the ground should I add), which were somewhat modest compared with Donatella’s regular, the all flesh baring sandals. Sharp shoes were set with leathers by hook or by crook perfectly complimenting the softer cut of the attire.
    With superior accessories, maybe more extraordinary than ever, Donatella clearly showed how Versace had more in store for us then we bargained, like unseen footage from a movie.
    The new versace girl, it seems, is a contradiction in terms, shes sharp however soft, shes quiet, but rock and roll, shes ‘Dirrty’ yet she’s the ‘Genie in the bottle’

    Very impressed with your review Sean! And even more so with the collection itself. For once I can actually say something nice about Versace. So feminine and classy yet with an edge.

    Donatella, Sean was right about you all along :p

    i think sje's taking the label in the right direction. the colours were great, i like most of the pieces, especially the suits.

    what did you think of it, sean/acid? (how do i call you now btw?)

    sidenote: unflattering angle for X-Tina in that pic. she looks bloated or pregnant. :x :twisted:

    I love it! :wub:

    Donatella can do no wrong :lol: :wink:

    I'm not surprised she likes CA. She's skankalicious and would love her clothes! Much hotter than Britney imo.

    I thought that was the best Versace collection I had seen to date; that is until I read that Christina Aguilera acted as Donnatella's 'muse' :x


    What is this woman thinking? Quoted from UK Vogue, something along the lines of 'it was a pity the models couldn't dance like Christina'. Who would WANT to? :x :x :x

    Great review though, Sean :wub:

    I don't know which is better: the collection or the review. :)

    But bravo to Donnatella for her outstanding collection. If money were no object, that gorgeous suit would be mine - so versatile and just plain perfect (together or worn as separates). I'm also really liking these:

    I don't like this... it looks like calvin klein with skinny pants... or maybe a laid back dolce collection. now how is jennifer gonna pull off these designs?
