Donatella Has Us Gaga For Atelier Versace's Couture Collection

Jan 19 2014 - 2:30pm

When Donatella Versace [1] tweeted the first glimpse of her beautiful room [2] from the location of Atelier Versace's Spring 2014 Haute Couture [3] show, with it came the promise of opulence. And Donatella always delivers on her word.

Arriving on the arm of a hooded Lady Gaga [4], Donatella and the face of Versace [5] opened Couture Week [6] while representing the label fiercely — and they had nothing on the looks that came down the runway! Under a ceiling set ablaze by chandelier light, the models stormed the catwalk in draped silk jersey, geometric embroidery, power suits, and hoods in a range of colors from lavender to chartreuse. Most spectacular of all the details were the faux tattoo embellishments adorning sheer panels.

In fact, all of the hallmarks of a Versace show were there. High-slit gowns? Check. Fur? Check. Skin? Check. The sort of sexy designs we can expect to see everyone from January Jones [7] to Jessica Alba [8], Jennifer Lopez [9] to Lady Gaga, wearing on the red carpet? Definite check. And while back on the topic of Gaga, the show closed with a parade of models walking to "Born This Way" for what is sure to go down as one of Versace's Versace-est moments [10].
