Amal Clooney went all-out with a glamorous red carpet ensemble in New York on Thursday after serving up plenty of workwear and party dress inspiration over the past few months. The Lebanese barrister attended the Albie Awards—a new event hosted by her and husband George Clooney’s organization, the Clooney Foundation for Justice—wearing a golden Versace gown.

The sleeveless and form-flattering number channeled 1920s flapper girl-style with its head-to-toe crystal beaded fringes that caught the light in all the right ways. To elevate the retro mood of her ensemble, Amal Clooney swapped her signature hairstyle for a voluminous ‘do with a side part and big, textured waves, while silver eyeshadow and a bold red lip completed her look. The glam was courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury, who took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes video in which Amal Clooney makes a rare social media appearance. For accessories, the mother-of-two matched the metallic look with a gilded chain strap clutch, dainty diamond earrings, and silver Aquazzura heels.

The evening saw Amal and George Clooney—who looked sharp in a black tuxedo and bow tie—honor individuals “global justice defenders [journalists, human rights leaders] who are at great risk for what they do.” The awards are named after  South African former judge Justice Albie Sachs, a lawyer, activist, and writer, known for “defending people charged under racist statutes and repressive security laws.” Stars in attendance that night included Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Dua Lipa, Drew Barrymore, Oscar Isaac, Dua Lipa, John Oliver, and Ethan Hawke.

First announced back in September 2021, fashion houses Fendi and Versace’s collaborative line, aka #Fendace, dropped today in Dubai, Los Angeles, Kuwait, Paris and Tokyo, and as expected, has received a wave of appreciation from fashion enthusiasts. Featuring the iconic Naomi Campbell, Moroccan-Egyptian-Dutch model Imaan Hammam, South Sudanese-Australian beauty Adut Akech, American model of South Sudanese heritage Anok Yai, Ethiopia’s Amar Akway, Lina Zhang from China, and Anja Rubik from Poland, the campaign was shot by none other than Steven Meisel, and seamlessly embodies the fun, playful vibe of the line.

Marrying Fendi’s love for logomania with Versace’s globally-loved baroque patterns, the Fendace collection pops with a vibrant palette and lots of sparkle. “It’s a swap rather than a collaboration and, most of all, it is done out of friendship,” Kim Jones shared. “It is the beauty of togetherness after time apart and a celebration of women who have inspired me so much.”

And it looks like Donatella Versace couldn’t agree more. “The campaign captures the same sense of friendship and energy we had when we were designing the collection. Kim is a visionary designer and innovator. To me, Fendace will always mean love,” the designer said.

Among the most exciting creations to be found in the new Fendace collection are the reinvented versions of two classics. Versace’s signature La Medusa bag will be available in two alternate print finishes, with the La Medusa plaque sharing space with Fendi FF trims, and the Trigreca sneakers can be seen doused in Versace’s gold baroque work and Fendi’s trademark print.

In the world of red carpet style, the Met Gala has been the place for celebrity couples to be seen together. Whatever the theme, many famous pairs have coordinated their looks for the stylish affair. 2019’s camp-themed affair, for instance, saw a particularly high number of couples who matched for the event. And with this year’s Met Gala rapidly approaching, Vogue is celebrating the spirit of the ball, looking back on the couples’ style moments that still resonate today.
If the Met Gala is a place for bold, one-of-kind fashion to be unveiled, it’s also a place where high-profile couples have made their red carpet debuts. Take Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, who walked the red carpet for the first time together in 2016: The stars wore futuristic getups inspired by the year’s technology theme, Hadid in a space-age, chic Tommy Hilfiger gown and Malik in a Versace suit with robotic-style sleeves. For other couples, the Met Gala has served as a meet-cute spot. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra met for the first time at the soirée in 2017, and now the pair are husband and wife.
Other famous duos who have been fixtures at the Met Gala as well include the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner—who could forget the latter couple’s matching geometric looks by Louis Vuitton in 2019, which they wore just one week after getting hitched? Last year, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky set the Internet ablaze when they showed up to the Met steps in matching voluminous looks (Rihanna in Balenciaga, Rocky in ERL).

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion Wore Twinning Versace Outfits at the Grammys To Recreate This Throwback Moment

Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion Wore Twinning Versace Outfits at the Grammys To Recreate This Throwback Moment

Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa were both anointed with the best new artist Grammy after their breakthrough years, so it only made sense that they would be on hand to give this year’s award to pop’s most recent success story, Olivia Rodrigo, at the 2022 Grammys. They did have one surprise in the bag for the ceremony. The pair came out in matching black floor-length gowns, and engaged in a bit of banter.
“You stole my look!” said Megan as she looked Lipa up and down.
“I was told I had the exclusive,” Lipa joked. “I’m going to have to have a talk with Donatella.”
“Yeah, because I thought I was the Versace hottie,” Megan replied, referencing a line from her song “Outside.”

Then Donatella Versace joined the pair on stage. “Basta, basta, basta,” she said. “Let’s do this, and this.” She then unclipped a part of Lipa’s dress to reveal a jumpsuit underneath. She then turned to Megan and unveiled a shorter body-con skirt under the original dress.
The fashionable moment was, of course, reminiscent of the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards where Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston showed up in the same dress and joked a bit about how they both thought theirs was one of a kind. Carey finished the exchange by ripping a layer of her skirt off, revealing a shorter hemline. It was an apt choice, as Carey herself won best new artist in 1994. (Houston, however, was actually never nominated for the award because her appearance on a Teddy Pendergrass single that had received a Grammy nod a year before she released her debut album.)
Lipa is a brand ambassador for Versace and has appeared in a number of the house’s ad campaigns. On the red carpet earlier on Sunday, Lipa wore a vintage 1992 look by the brand that was once worn by Donatella herself.

Lily James has treated us to a series of jaw-dropping looks during the Pam & Tommy promo tour, from cut-out bralettes to a Roberto Cavalli naked dress. At an after-party celebrating the LA premiere of the Hulu show, the actor opted for perhaps her most sensual look yet: a skin-tight Latex dress by Versace, featuring a cut-out neckline.

Given Pamela Anderson’s love of Latex (James plays the Baywatch star in the new series), it was a fitting way to round off a press tour that has seen the actor show off a new-found body confidence. James completed the bombshell look with Versace mules and graphic earrings, with her hair slicked back into a ponytail.

It’s not the first time that James has been spotted in Versace in recent weeks, with the star opting for an embellished cut-out dress for the Italian fashion house’s fall/winter 2022 show during Milan Fashion Week. Earlier on in her press tour, she was also seen in a silver mini-dress by the designer, featuring a caged bodice and accompanying jacket. “She looked like a total smokeshow,” stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray told Vogue of the look. We couldn’t agree more.

The 35 Best Modest Looks from Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2022

Milan Fashion Week came back strong after two years in the deep due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Making bold choices, participating designers played with the fall and winter season colors of black, brown, white, beige, blue, and silver/grey, creating an almost dark/light academia aesthetic. Standing out were Roberto Cavalli’s striking leopard patterns with draping suit jackets and majestic cape dresses, while Dolce & Gabbana made statements with headscarves paired with demure silhouettes in monochrome palettes. Versace embraced a similar mood, but with form-fitting shapes, and Jil Sander took on a more formal approach and offered a modest suit in yellow and a grey dress paired with white leather gloves.
Below, check out the 35 best modest looks spotted on the runways of Milan Fashion Week.

The 8 Biggest Moments in the World of Fashion in 2021

The 8 Biggest Moments in the World of Fashion in 2021

What better way to round up 2021 than with a look back at the year’s best fashion brand moments? This year, brands amazed us with unexpected collaborations like Gucci x Balenciaga, major comebacks (hello, Mark Jacobs!) and sadly, a heartbreaking loss too, with the passing of one of the greatest fashion design icons of the 21st century, Virgil Abloh.
Gucci and Balenciaga stunned the fashion world when they announced a collaboration, launching the collection “hack” into stores. Alessandro Michele (creative director for Gucci) used quotes and logos from Demna (creative director for Balenciaga) and mixed them with his personal taste and signatures—the 70’s, suits and feathers. Later in 2021, the link-up between Versace and Fendi, better known as Fendace, was another collab to take note of.

Known for his unexpected surprises, Kanye West announced The First Yeezy x Gap collaboration this year too. Out of nowhere, a cerulean puffer appeared on Gap’s website, which was the first product of the collaboration to be put up for sale. Balenciaga’s Demna definitely had a great year too. Not only was he a part of the collaboration with Gucci, but he also presented his first couture collection this year, a series of  beautifully sculpted gowns, trench coats and haute jeans. And that’s not all for Balenciaga. 2021 was also the year that the brand teamed up with the video game Fortnite and to create an unforeseen  line of skins.

While everyone was focused on virtual shows and lookbooks, Marc Jacobs decided to stay old-school in 2021. After being absent from the runway for over a year, he returned with a special showcase at New York’s Public Library. Cocoon shapes and huge platform shoes mixed with holographic dresses and faux furs was the way to go for Jacobs.
Celebrating his 10th anniversary at Balmain this year, creative director Olivier Rousteing brought, strength, bold beauty, diversity, and craftsmanship on to the runway. Balmain’s spring/summer 2022 line was the talk of the town during Paris Fashion Week, which showcased iconic designs from the fashion house’s past decade while being surrounded by iconic women such as supermodel Naomi Campbell. A personal message from Beyoncé was also shared with Rousteing.

After a decade of working as the creative director for Celine, 2021 was also the year that Phoebe Philo launched a brand under her own name. But of all the big moments, nothing resounded quite like the loss of the iconic fashion designer Virgil Abloh. Two days after his death, Abloh’s spring 2022 collection was celebrated at Art Basel in Miami. Friends of the designer including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Rihanna were present to pay tribute to the unforgettable talent.

“Please join me for an intimate creative experience,” read Donatella Versace’s invitation to the fashion pack on the closing day of the Milan spring/summer 2022 shows. The blockbuster production that unfolded on Sunday evening was by no means “intimate” when you consider the scores of fashion fans tuning in across the globe, but creativity between two of the biggest luxury houses in the world certainly abounded. Believe the hype – Fendace has landed. Just don’t call it a Fendi X Versace collaboration.

What unfolded was a fabulous switch-up, which saw Donatella Versace and Kim Jones swap roles to create two uniquely brilliant, logo-heavy collections inspired by their friendship and the cultural relevance of the two heavyweight brands they are at the helms of. First up, Jones, the king of transfusing streetwear and subcultural style through a luxury lens, put his mark on Versace with a little help from Kristen McMenamy, Paloma Elsesser, Lila Grace Moss, Karen Elson, Kate Moss, and Amber Valletta.

Then, Mona Tougaard, Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Naomi Campbell brought to life the queen of no-holds-barred glamour Donatella’s Fendi vision, as Drake, Future, and Young Thug blasted out their latest song with intermittent “Ciao! Donatella!” broadcasts across the airwaves. It was to borrow the words of Dua Lipa, who opened the Versace spring/summer 2022 show on Friday and sat front row at the special showcase.

Even more sizzling? Elizabeth Hurley, who sat front row with her son Damian, Iris Law, and Winnie Harlow. The original Versace girl – who put the brand’s now-iconic safety-pin embellishment on the map at the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral more than 25 years ago – demonstrated the definition of smoldering, while Damian did his own version of Blue Steeling for the cameras.

It was a glitzy family affair from start to finish and reflective of the spirit of collaboration currently in the air. While Gucci’s “hacking” of Balenciaga will go down in history and Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’s co-design partnership breaks new ground, no one can quite dial up the drama like Donatella and Kim. Brava.

In Milan, Dua Lipa not only opened and closed the Versace show in true-to-form bombshell fashion, but debuted a surprise hair transformation. Hitting the catwalk in an asymmetrical skirtsuit featuring oversize rainbow safety pins and a single cut-out along one hip for a flash of midriff, the pop superstar’s signature dark brunette hair was dramatically longer, falling all the way down to her waist as she whipped around the turn of the runway.
The extra length was crafted by none other than hairstylist Guido Palau. “We’re emphasizing that straightness that Donatella loves with some extensions to really sort of exaggerate the girls,” explained Palau, who pulled Lipa’s extended pin-straight lengths into a taut, half-up style that helped highlight her lime green lids, which were painted on by makeup artist Pat McGrath. “It’s really a classic hair style, but we’re trying to make it look extreme.”
Photo: Alessandro Lucioni
Palau likened the silhouette to the enduring reference that is Catherine Deneuve’s signature half-up style, but with a “more modern and futuristic” twist; the center panel of hair sculpted flat to the head shape, as opposed to teased up to voluminous effect. To achieve sleek texture, Palau coated lengths in Bumble and bumble hairspray before flat-ironing it one section at a time, and then used a flexible hair wax to tame fly-aways. A single gold barrette fastened in the back finished the look.
Who better to showcase Versace’s latest take on timeless, va-va-voom hair than its official Gen Z muse? Remember: It’s Dua’s World—and we’re all just living in it!

20 of the Best Jeans in Every Kind of Style

20 of the Best Jeans in Every Kind of Style

After lounging in sweats last summer, it’s now time to step out in your best denim. Jeans are a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style: pair with a simple T-shirt (so 70s Jane Birkin), an OTM crochet top and bucket hat, a silk shirt, and blazer… The options are endless.
Loose-fit jeans are the new skinny and were spotted all over the SS21 runway. Chanel paired wide styles with a mini bag belt and signature tweed jacket, while Balmain declared the 90s are back with skinny flares under strappy dresses. Stella McCartney’s 70s flare is the definition of nostalgia (with a fresh twist), and those straight-leg styles by Versace? Utterly timeless. Choosing the right pair for you means making your selection based on what you feel confident in and will work with your current wardrobe – after all, the beauty of denim is its ability to mix and merge seamlessly with any number of key pieces.
Scroll through to see a range of jeans for all sizes, shapes, and personal styles…
