The Versace Warrior Princess:

Glam Coats--and a SEXY-HOT mini dress: Atelier Versace Fall/Winter 2012

As you may know, Paris Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Week is happening right now over in the City of Lights--and love and baguettes--Paris! In my last post I brought you my "highlights" from Belgian designer Raf Simons' debut Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter Collection. And now, it's time for Miss Donatella...

In her past collections for the Haute Couture hand-made $40,000-$150,000 costing arm of the Versace Empire, she had decided to either show her collections via Look Book images, or in more "Gallery"-like showings (like last season). But she is back! This time, she showed at the famed Ritz Hotel Paris, where her dear brother had shown for EIGHT YEARS. The collection--although Fall, was very Spring/Summer in its bright, bold colors (blush, peach, lilac, lavender, neon green, yellow, and magenta pinks).  

It was very 1990's "old school" Versace. Donatella has been on this 1990's trend in terms of the Versace archive silhouettes, va-va-boom shapes, and an over all "Where's Linda Evagelista, Yazmeen Ghauri, Nadja Auermann and Christy Turlington?" feeling. PS: Those models would be WORKING these clothes OVERTIME on the runway! Is it me, or do these 16 year old girls not EVEN hold a candle to those Supermodel Goddesses?!!! Nevertheless, the clothes on display were sexy, strong, "Warrior Princess" fab. Take a look:
