Milan Fashion Week: Sprinkling stardust at Versus

February 28, 2011 | 10:54 am


Watching Christopher Kane's Versus show just hours before the Oscars were set to begin on Sunday, I thought, "Get this man to Hollywood!"

But really, the collection (from Versace's secondary line) was chock-full of pieces that would find favor on the red carpet any day of the week.

It was all about lingerie-like effects--black coats, jackets and little black dresses (for day and night) with sheer bodice detailing and boning. And sparkle! Nordic sweaters were reworked in Lurex; glitter block prints were splashed across glam pants, skirts and sleeveless dresses.


Some pieces were so glitter-coated that the models walking down the runway left glitter in their wake. How great is that?
