In few words about Donatella Versace’s ‘fantastic’ creation for SS14’s Couture season. Taking Azzedine Alaia’s biggest hits like the Grace Jones purple gown, and making it more Barbie by putting crystals and diamonds on it is not creativity. It’s copying. I understand young designers like Olivier Rousting orAnthony Vaccarello who are inspired by Alaia- they look for new in old. But Donatella? It’s even not Gianni legacy. The collection was so horribly #rich-bish-champagne-cool… that even Lady Gaga -who took photos with every guest like Abercombie&Fitch boys on the entrance to the store- couldn’t help it. Maybe less glitter puke but more… Real Versace couture?

  1. It’s funny because on Sunday evening, I watched the “Fashion !” documentary, on French channel Stylia, and it featured an extract from the 1985 Oscars de la Mode, when Azzedine Alaïa took his prize, accompanied by Grace Jones, who sported his iconic purple dress ! Xxx

Would love to hear what you think!
