Dua Lipa Appeared on the Catwalk for the First Time and Opened the Versace Show
All the attention of the fashion community is now focused on Milan- the city hosts Fashion Week. Prada, BOSS, Alberta Ferretti, and Moschino have already shown their collections, and on Friday evening Donatella Versace captured all the public’s attention. The Versace show is traditionally remembered not only for its bold and sexy design but also for the participation of celebrities.
Thus, the main star of the show Versace spring-summer 2022 was a British singer of Albanian origin Dua Lipa, who was trusted to open the show. For the artist, this appearance on the catwalk was her debut, although she already worked with the brand last season, becoming the face of the autumn-winter 2021/22 collection. Dua Lipa appeared on the catwalk twice- opened and closed the show. She was wearing a black fitted jacket with slits at the waist and an asymmetrical pencil skirt. At the final exit, the singer wore a shimmering pink dress consisting of a top and a long skirt. The outfit was referred to the previous collections of the brand.
Also on the catwalk was Madonna’s eldest daughter in a silver dress, who is now actively conquering the fashion industry. She was accompanied by no less bright and charismatic girls who have long worked with Versace — Naomi Campbell in a bright pink suit, Gigi Hadid who changed her image twice, Emily Ratajkowski in a low-rise skirt, and Irina Shayk in a shiny top and a skirt with a slit.
For Donatella Versace, the following summer will be very colorful and bright. She mixed saturated colors with noticeable prints, slightly shaded them with dramatic black, and seasoned them with branded sex appeal. It turned out spectacular and clear. In the spring-summer collection, the accent was made on monochrome images in bright orange, blue, pink, green, and fuchsia colors.
To create an outfit for the new season, the fashion designer was inspired by the work of her brother, the founder of the Versace brand — Gianni Versace. The designer presented more than 70 outfits that were included both in the women’s and men’s lines. The collection consists of leather and latex minis, tops and skirts, jeans with silk inserts, sportswear, and various accessories.
The main trend in the spring will be massive glasses, scarves, basic baseball caps, and large jewelry. Scarves and basic baseball caps will not leave tops among hats. As for shoes, a high platform will perfectly complement any image in the new season.
