Paris Couture Spring/Summer 2014: Atelier Versace

Donatella Versace opened the Spring/Summer 2014 couture shows in Paris on Sunday night with her latest Atelier Versace collection. How did it look? Bold, bright and breezy. Oh and hoods? They're a thing.


The colours were bold, the luxe fabrics were adorned with crystals and sequins and even on the thanks to thigh-high splits in gowns and tiny hot pants, there was a lot of leg on show.

In fact - these Versace designs were made for a very glamorous (tanned) girl who only holidays in exotic and expensive destinations. Slick hair, heavy eye makeup and shiny stilettos are essential to this girl's wardrobe too.

As for the f-row, Lady Gaga flew into Paris to join Donatella for the occasion. Has she embraced the hood trend? Of course she has...
