We caught up with Donatella Versace's newest muse, rapper Angel Haze after her adrenaline pumping Lollapalooza performance to get the scoop on her unique sense of style. Get to know the rap phenom before her debut album Dirty Gold drops on January 1st--and before fashion week, because we’re willing to bet that she’ll have a killer seat at all the top shows. Read on.
Donatella Versace revealed her new vision for Versace's little sister brand Versus at what was essentially a rave held at the Lexington Avenue Armory last night.
Last November, Versace announced a new strategy for its little sister line Versus. Christopher Kane would no longer design it, and Versus would never do a runway show again. Going forward, Versus would be a series of collaborations between Versace and "various creative innovators and designers" and have a "strong digital element." So what does that all mean? A new video airing exclusively on Fashionista sheds some light on what Versace has in mind for her beloved Versus (she says it's "the first collection my brother Gianni gave to me in complete freedom to do") in advance of the first designer capsule collection for Versus with J.W. Anderson.
In 2012, the fashion universe sort of reset itself. Raf Simons got what he deserved—Dior—while Alexander Wang got what very few could have predicted: Balenciaga. Now, the question is: What sort of seismic shifts will happen in 2013? From brand expansion, to designer debuts, here are the 10 labels you'll want to keep an eye on this year. Click through to see which brands we think will make a splash in 2013 and why.
Versus's follow-up to Christopher Kane will be another young British star: J.W. Anderson.
Before the rumors about Christopher Kane going to Balenciaga were squelched (a spokesperson for Kane said that the report was "unfounded") I wondered: If Kane was going to helm Balenciaga, what would happen to Versus, the kid-sister Versace line he's designed for the past six seasons? Surely, he couldn't carry on designing three lines. Even though today brings no new developments regarding who will replace Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, Versace has announced that Christopher Kane will be leaving Versus in what WWD is describing as a "mutual agreement" between Kane and Donatella Versace. It's a "mutual agreement" because there was no termination of contract--Versus is simply taking a different tack.
The intrepid fashion flock moves ever onwards. As the shows begin in Paris, flash back with Report Card to see what restrained (mostly!) acts of creativity had critics buzzing each day in Milan.
Three down, one more to go: Yep, another fashion week has come and gone. Here are our 10 favorite collections from Milan fashion week.
We're still in Milan, eating chunks of parmesan, pleading with PRs, and bringing you the latest show notes and galleries. Today we've got MaxMara's sportier more casual li'l sis Sportmax, Fendi's Rubik's cube-y collection, and Christopher Kane's loud prints and plasticized fabrics (all with a live soundtrack provided by Beth Ditto) at Versus.

We've scoured the Fall 2012 collections for the most amazing shoes, and it was easy, because there were plenty. The best part? Footwear options for Fall 2012 are a lot more reasonable than their Spring 2012 counterparts. (Remember those 6 inch Versace lucite wedges?) Fall 2012 saw lots of wide heels and mary-janes on the runway, and sometimes both simultaneously--like at Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Marni. Knee-high black boots ruled at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Givenchy, and Rick Owens, and ladylike pumps could be found at Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Jil Sander. Of course, if you're looking for something crazy, look no further than Alexander McQueen's heel-less fur shoes. Impractical, but so lovely. Take a look at all the amazing shoes from Fall 2012 and just try to pick a favorite. It's near impossible.
Milan Fashion Week has come to a close, and the stylish masses have moved on to Paris. But we've still got some leftovers from fair Italia: suited up
Three down and only one more to go! Yep, another fashion week has come to a close and what a week it was. From metal corsetry at Versace to bejeweled blazers at Prada, we saw everything from the gothic to the playful--and every style in between. Read on to find out which collections made our list of top ten favorites from Milan fashion week.
Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane are two very different designers--with generations between them--but the duo's fall 2012 collection for Versus, was truly a marriage, of the best kind, of their two aesthetics. Kane, a 29-year-old cool kid from London, clearly has an eye for what his peers want, and we can imagine he had young 20-something, club-goers in mind when he designed the dip-dyed, body-con, lace-up frocks. On the other hand, Donatella, a 55-year-old, glamorous Italian woman who's been around the block a few times, probably had a hand in the collection's more sophisticated and well-tailored pieces.
This week our favorites all went a little vampy. Kate Bosworth did Richard Nicoll's icy pink dress justice, Amber Heard sexed it up in Yigal Azrouel and Anna Paquin looked plain hot in Versus for the premier of True Blood's fourth season. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley continued her press junket reign in Gucci, and Diane Kruger made us jealous in YSL.
