The Fashion World Knows What’s Next!
Headlining the glittery evening were two of the music world’s hottest new stars: Grimes and Angel Haze. Claire Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes, wowed the audience in a Versus granite-hued skirt and a top adorned with Versace’s trademark logo, which was perfectly accented with black combat boots.
Grimes, who was awarded the Webby for Artist of the Year in 2013, showcased her unique and original synthesis of industrial, electronic, pop, hip hop, and R&B, while Angel Haze showed why she has become one of today’s hottest female rappers.
Angel, who rocked a colorful, oversize button-up Versus Versace print during her electrifying performance, proved once again that she really does rule in New York City. Although Grimes and Angel are at opposite ends of the musical spectrum, both women were seen wearing Versace’s signature medallion necklace during the May 15th event.
The young, hip and decidedly star-studded audience included luminaries like Cameron Silver, Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, and singer Paloma Faith. These long-time Versace fans pulled out all the stops, wearing some fabulous Versace outfits themselves.
With a spectacular runway show that included bold new Versus Versace prints, guys in crop tops, and enough bling to light up the room, it’s clear that the new Versus Versace’s 2013 Collection was exactly what the fashion world was looking for. New Versus Versace styles are available now in select locations and JW Anderson’s new capsule line will be available starting June 15.
The attention to detail and commitment to quality that were abundantly evident at the Versus Versace 2013 Collection launch have always been a hallmark of the popular Versace Versus timepiece line. To wear what the fashion world is celebrating now, it’s time to head for your nearest authorized Versus Versace retailer and start making your own headlines.
