The late Gianni Versace used to show his couture collection at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. His sis Donatella continued the tradition until 2004, and this weekend, she finally returned to Gianni’s favorite spot. As such, we wanted to take a look back at Gianni’s Atelier Versace creations.
In this video from his fall 1996 couture show, supers like Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta, and Carla Bruni strut their stuff on the runway. Gianni paired body-hugging dresses with colorful furs, and styled the models’ hair into faux-hawks. The ensembles were classic Versace — sleek, sexy, and luxurious.
