Jessica Alba turned up the heat not once, but twice on the leopard-print carpet at the 2013 Spike TV Guys Choice Awards over the weekend. The actress first donned a hot yellow Versace mini, then a more ladylike two-toned Narciso Rodriguez sheath dress. Watch on and let us know which you prefer in the comments below. On Allison: Pixie Market.
Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards is technically all about the boys, but we think Jessica Alba stole the show in not one, but two sexy looks. Her first choice was a strapless, bright yellow, crocodile-print Versace dress that put both her décolletage and legs on display. For further fun, she added contrasting red pumps and a retro hairdo to finish. Then, for her onstage ensemble, Jessica changed into a more demure two-toned Narciso Rodriguez dress with embellished sandals and mini chandelier earrings. The first look didn't lack in the sass department, while Jessica's outfit change gave her an undeniably chic finish to the night. Tell us: which of Jessica Alba's Guys Choice Awards ensembles do you like best?
Jonathan Anderson says he's "super proud" of the capsule collection he created for Versus — and that he loved the chance to collaborate with Donatella Versace.
"I adore her," he told Vogue UK. "I thought what we did took Versus back to where it should be. It was an amazing collaboration and a good balance for both of us."
Asked whether he'd ever work with another designer, Anderson said, "No. Donatella is really the only exception. She's exceptional and takes risks."
To celebrate the launch of the collection in May, Anderson and Versace filled New York City's Lexington Avenue Armory with everyone from industry insiders like Leigh Lezark, Eniko Mihalik, and Harriet Mays Powell, but she also drew stars like Heidi Klum, Darren Criss, and Taylor Momsen.

Versace received some very good news in its case against Griffith Suisse Luxury Group, a company that had been selling fake Versace goods on eBay out of the Philippines and Australia. After more than four years of litigation, a Northern California court ruled in favor of Versace, effectively prohibiting the accused group from using Versace's trademarks and indefinitely banning them from selling anything on eBay.
"We are very pleased with the ruling," Versace CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris told WWD. "Counterfeit goods not only bring to a dilution of the brand, but are connected to organized crime, child labor, and harmful working conditions. . . . One cannot take pride in being counterfeited."
Authentic Versace pieces all come complete with a Certilogo code, a serial number that customers can check online to see if it's counterfeit or not. If it is, they should send it back. To this, Ferraris said, "It's a clear system and very transparent. We want to protect consumers and all those affected by the manufacture and trade in fake goods."
The Cannes Film Festival is easily one of the biggest red carpet fashion spectacles of the year. The latest star to steal the show is Jessica Chastain, who walked the carpet wearing a Bulgari necklace that once belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. Watch on for the full scoop. On Allison: Rebecca Taylor jacket, Line & Dot top, G Star jeans.
Last night marked the launch of Versus Versace, and the event was a star-studded affair. Celebrities like Heidi Klum and Hayden Panettiere stepped out sporting some seriously gorgeous beauty looks that almost distracted us from the beautiful clothing. Want to see more? Just keep clicking.
On Tuesday, virtually everyone with an Internet connection and a Google+ account will be able to hang out with Donatella Versace.
The designer, who will celebrate the launch of her first Versus capsule collection in New York on Wednesday, will give her fans a first look at the clothes during a Google+ Hangout that will start tomorrow at 4 p.m. EDT. In a video teasing the virtual event, Versace explained that she chose the occasion for her first Google+ Hangout because she wants "everybody to be a part of the process."
Fashion blogger Jay Strut will play host, and the brand promises that "influential bloggers and models from around the world" will also take to their webcams to participate in the online talk. Versace will unveil the full collection — created with the young British label J.W. Anderson — at a party in New York on Wednesday night.
Selena Gomez and Versace are turning out to be a red-carpet match made in heaven. While the brunette beauty started wearing the label's younger-skewed line Versus for performances several years ago, Gomez has graduated to racier ready-to-wear looks from Versace and jaw-dropping couture from Atelier Versace over the past year. From her Atelier Versace white, neon-accented gown at the 2013 Billboard Awards to the Atelier Versace pinstripe suit with gold detailing that she wore to the Berlin premiere of Spring Breakers (you have to see the open back!) to the nude Atelier Versace number she chose for the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty to that Versace LWD with silver detailing at the Hotel Transylvania premiere, we can't get enough of the pairing. Click through to get a closer look at her love affair with all of Donatella Versace's creations.
If this isn't a nod to '80s-inspired Dynasty styling, we don't know what is. Halle Berry chose a silver-and-black Versace gown that featured both bold stripes and structured shoulder pads. And while this Versace number was long-sleeved, she kept the sex appeal on high alert with its seriously revealing neckline. For the finish, she accented her look with black drop earrings. Are you into it?

Donatella Versace's punk-rock Fall '13 could safely supply the fashion set with a number of appropriately themed gowns for this year's Met Gala. It could also easily (and further) incite homage to '90s-era grunge from the street-style crowd with its nostalgic references — chains, nails, studs, and spikes as choice accessories for the season. While Donatella never shies away from the subversive or the sexy, this is clearly some tougher stuff. Click through for a look at the full collection now.
