Here’s the view from my seat at yesterday evening’s high-voltage Versace spring/summer 2012 fashion show.
I waved at Donatella from afar while she took her walk. And guess what — she waved back… and glanced at me when she passed by! Long live Donatella!
Lots of photos to follow. I’m blogging from the back of my sponsored Range Rover ride en route to Emporio Armani!
I rushed straight to Via Gesu after the stunning Prada show earlier this evening. Donatella invited me for a casual meet. I thought it was very sweet and kind of her to invite me to their rehearsal, a full twenty four hours before the show. Models Siri Tollerod and Lindsey Wixson were also there, walking the long, lighted runway in these amazing, skyscraper platform shoes. Versace shows are usually high-energy, with gorgeous girls sashaying to pumping music. Donatella told me there are going to be forty-plus looks tomorrow and she liked the idea of bringing big hair back after several seasons of sleek, straight hair.
In other news, my bf arrived in Milan this afternoon. He, too, met the iconic Donatella. I don’t usually tag him along to my business affairs but I needed someone to capture a photo of me and Ms. Versace.
Are you excited for the Versace show tomorrow night? I am.
