Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2014 kicks off on Jan 19 with a late night show from Atelier Versace. From January 19 to 23, the top couturiers will present their made-to-measure, money-no-object handcrafted collections, which are so luxurious and glamorous to make even celebrities envious.
Donatella Versace presented a series of glamorous gowns featuring artful draping, sculpted and detailed tattoo-like embellishment at the Versace spring 2014 haute couture show.
“I love to combine the traditions of couture with the daring of contemporary life,” Donatella Versace explained before the show. “I like a woman to look controlled and elegant, but also for her to have a provocative attitude”.
For most of the couture gowns, the designer matched them with the shoes featuring slink back, pointed toe, clear PVC and metallic leather constructed upper, and pink metallic leather outersole. Asymmetric metallic leather straps over the foot and connected to the front metallic pointed toe box as one piece.
Another shoe design spotted on the runway of Versace spring 2014 haute couture show features pointed toe box, metallic cutout sandal with adjusted ankle straps. Upper straps waved around the foot and finished with an “O” shape on top. The outersole is also metallic pink.
Lady Gaga attended the show, wearing a sparkly black hood from next season’s collection. One of the tracks on Gaga’s most recent Artpop album was even called Donatella, while Versace selected Gaga as the face of the spring 2014 Versace campaign.
Now let’s indulge our fashion fantasies with these breathtaking and unique gowns hand-made with couture craftsmanship, single pieces, designed and made to measure for one person only, the ultimate expression of the designer’s art.
