Versace just staged a runway show in LA, here’s everything you need to know
If you thought fashion month was over, think again. Paris Fashion Week (opens in new tab) may have drawn to a close on Tuesday afternoon, but that doesn’t mean the runways stop. Proving that, in fact, fashion never sleeps, Versace hosted its Autumn/Winter 2023 runway show in Los Angeles overnight.
While Versace has been a fixture on the Milan Fashion Week (opens in new tab) calendar for years, this season Donatella decided to try something new, heading to US soil to stage the brand’s show just days before the 2023 Oscars (opens in new tab).
Could proximity to celebrities have been a factor in Versace’s decision? It certainly seems so. Both on and off the runway, Versace’s Autumn/Winter runway show was as star-studded as they come. The likes of Anne Hathaway (opens in new tab), Miley Cyrus, Pamela Anderson (opens in new tab) and Dua Lipa appeared front row. While on the runway, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski (opens in new tab) took a turn in Versace’s statement designs.

The names on the runway were just as impressive (and recognizable) as those on the front row, including Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Irina Shayk and Emily Ratajkowski.

In typical Versace fashion, the clothes were figure-hugging and fabulous. Models walked the runway with exaggerated winged eyeliner and opera gloves. Denim was shown alongside, red-carpet-worthy gowns and tailored separates. Of course, it wouldn’t be Versace without a whole host of little black dresses.
