Versace - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Nobody in Milan dares compete with Donatella Versace's notion of sexy, and for Fall, she offered up a slew of wannabe demure dresses that will look pretty smashing on her devoted client. Floor-length, draped silk gowns with open backs in crimson, nude and aqua (worn gloriously by Mariacarla) recalled the Michelle Pfeiffer/Scarface era, while a slinky beaded halter gown in a shimmering ocean blue belongs on the red carpet as soon as humanly possible. The daywear--a series of black wool coats lightly dusted with lamé embroidery--took care of the modern element, but one of the most crowd-pleasing looks was a belted shaved mink in an unforgettable shade of teal seen on Jessica Stam. When it comes to this kind of drama, Donatella remains untouched.
