Atelier Versace Spring 2013 Couture

In no way did Donatella fail to exceed her legendary abilities with this Spring 2013 Couture collection. It. Was. Amazing. Perfect, perfect, perfect. No boundaries, no limits. Items you could immediately imagine being worn by Blake Lively down a busy 5th Avenue.

Usually, I'd pick 5 or 6 looks that stole the show, but that is clearly impossible for this collection.

24- karat gold on this pinstriped suit. Need I say more?

Gorgeous waist-cinching belt. Skirt looks very similar to that of the H&M/Versace collaboration.

OK, seriously, wow.  Black mink fur with gold on the shoulders, serious cleavage cut out and a bodycon fit. Donatella does not stop at anything for maximal glamour. 

Geometric glamour. Adore how the neckline leads up to a halter. The fabrics here are very much suit-like. Office turned  red carpet, anyone?

Cute pastel pink. Jacket with the side zipper is adorable. Embellishments everywhere!!!  My kind of collection!

Atelier Versace at its best. Excessive fur in a bright hot-pink colour..

Splits are huge right now so this is a winner. Pure white is going to be everywhere this season. Bursts of neon  colours add a Versace-esque spark. Diagonal cut out down the middle = daring, risky, sexy.

Gold sheaths of metal are used here to make a boyish blazer that acts as a dress. Seriously sexy.


You can really tell when something's couture with pieces like this. The black mink and gold shoulders compliment this gown perfectly. The sheer top and bottom add serious sex appeal but the highlight is that pattern on the torso! Cleopatra vibes!

Vogue said plastic would be a huge trend but I didn't really see it. How wrong I was. It's used magnificently here. Black and gold is a winning combination in almost any book and the gold used for the bodice couldn't be any better.

Something a bit more understated but the gold is still present. Love the squares.


Look at how gorg Donatella looks! This woman will never dress badly.
