Versace-AW14-styleonthecouch-4For AW14, Donatella Versace tells us “This is a collection about the power of a women.”  Military styling (think the Beatles in their Lonely Hearts Club stage) met with baton twirling dancers in this sexily-styled, provocative collection of mini dresses with lace-up boots, long, lean silk dresses and not forgetting the signature Versace bling.

“Bias cut dresses spliced from matte silk and shiny satin had asymmetric hemlines, which felt dated but to a young generation looking at this (young enough not to remember it in the early Nineties) then it must have looked novel. Then again, a Versace girl might choose to skip the dress altogether and go straight to the coats. The thing about this season’s thigh-skimming red alpaca jackets and bi-colour minks is that one needn’t necessarily wear anything underneath.” – Vogue.com

My favorites from this collection that surprisingly won me over were the black fringed skirts and short (short) dresses and the longer gowns (I remain a complete sucker for thigh high splits).  Now to locate my straightening irons and peroxide blonde, and you can sign my up for this Versace army.
