With the Versace catwalks always such a fabulously OTT glamour fest, we knew there was no way the label’s launch party for their upcoming H&M hook-up was going to be a subtle affair. To celebrate what is possibly the best high street/designer collaboration EVER, Donatalla Versace rounded up a whole host of A-list ladies and gentleman to party on a pier on New York’s Hudson River. After a catwalk preview of the killer collection, celebs including Blake Lively, Emma Roberts, Chloe Moretz and Selma Blair were treated to performances from a green haired Nicki Minaj and the one and only Prince!
and Chloe Moretz
both debuted designs from the range, Emma going for a print double whammy in the oriental floral bustier and matching trousers, and Chloe in the could-be-catwalk yellow embellished dress. Blake Lively
worked a subtler look in a monochrome mini with just a smattering of signature Versace bling, while Nicki Minaj
looked like she was vying for the role of Versace for H&M
poster girl, posing with Donatella
in a technicolour combo, popping platforms and flower adorned hair.
Looking at this lot has got us on the edge of our seats for the UK launch on 17th November ’11. Wonder what Donatella’s got planned for our side of the pond… we await our invites with baited breath Ms Versace. GG
