Va Va Voom Versace

As you may or may not know, is in its' 'renovation' and will be back in a few hours time. Well, I am definitely eager to view into its' website once it's up considering that it's the first place where the Spring Summer 2010 fashion show video will be up. A glimpse at its' preview left me wanting for more.

Moreover, this season Versace hottens its' collection with lots of colors and prints. The collection itself is very vibrant, very fresh, very young , very sexy and true to its' name very Versace. Many has claimed that this collection is very Gianni Versace- era, maybe Donatella is paying a tribute to her dear brother but nonetheless, like every Versace collection, this does not disappoint and as this collection is for Spring Summer, it fits in very well. I loved all the pastel colors used. The prints are a little distracting, not the best to be used but all are forgiven when those gowns are to die-for.The outfits aside, the shoes are a little tacky and the bags are just so-so. Not a fan of their accesories.

And, for once, I think that the casting are a little odd. The Versace veterans like Raquel, Carmen , Daria and Isabeli did not walk. They are nowhere to be seen in Milan. Some familiar names like Natasha Poly, Sasha, Freja, Karlie, Lily Donaldson, Snejana and Vlada reprise their role as regular Versace catwalkers while Abbey Lee opens and closed the show.

New girls like Mirte Maas (which fit in), Ginta Lapina and Katlin Aas debuted at their first Versace show but, as weird as this might sound, these girls looks like other models who have walked Versace . Mirte looks like Agnete Heghlund, Ginta is like Viktoriya Sasonkina and for some reason, I think that Katlin Aas looks like Coco Rocha here, maybe because of their hair color. I'm excited to see Skye, Jac, Imogen and Nimue there.

Iris and Ranya was there too, they are just everywhere nowadays but Versace? Iris -OK but Ranya? I just don't know what to say. Ranya belongs more to the cool kind of vibe, I don't see any sexiness in her walk.Another surprise is when Rianne Ten Haken walked.

Now, are that are left is the video. I'm wondering how many more hours do they need for the website to function...
