If there’s one designer we can always rely on for a spectacle worth talking about come Milan Fashion Week, it’s Donatella Versace. Yep, last season the show saw everyone worth their style salt sat FROW-side for the event, and this one was no exception.
As well as a star-studded guestlist, the Italian fashion house tapped only the best to walk in the show, with models including Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and Jourdan Dunn.
But the real show-stealer? Gigi Hadid’s nipple. Uh huh, as the 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel led the finale clad in a slinky backless maxi dress, there was an unexpected guest on the runway as her breast slipped out. Eek!
Needless to say, Gigi kept her poise and proved her status as Fashion Week veteran, subtly rearranging herself and continuing to storm the catwalk.
Shortly after, the model took to Twitter to address the, er, embarrassing moment: “Wardrobe malfunctions happen on the runway every day of fw and are.. unfortunate, lol, but let’s talk about the new VERSACE CHOKERS.”
“& the bags & the boots & the coats & everythinnnnnggg, kilin me Donatella @Versace!”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
This time, the collection came more wearable than ever with chic co-ords, sexy slit skirts and figure-hugging bodycon dresses in large supply. As for colour, this one was all about soft pastel hues of blue, pink, yellow and grey.
And those chokers? The neck piece got a whole new lease of life in stretchy bandeau fabric and bright neon shades.
See Gigi, we hardly even noticed your nip slip. Donatella wasn’t phased either – as Gigi exited stage left, the pair high-fived each other in celebration of such a sterling performance. Ben fatto! (That’s good job in Italian, FYI).
