Remember how nervous the girls of Cycle 15 were to go on their go-see at the Versace fashion house? We would have been terrified, too. Gianni Versace’s black and gold safety-pin dress for Liz Hurley in 1994 is by now a fashion legend and one of the most iconic looks in the Italian house’s history. We know Versace under Gianni’s guidance as a label defined by bold color, metallic embellishments and tight, sexy silhouettes. Since his death, the house has evolved under his sister Donatella’s guidance into an international mega-brand, but the key elements have remained the same. While it might be a mere fantasy for most of us to ever wear Versace — let alone ever visit the headquarters on a go-see — that doesn’t mean we can’t borrow the label’s signature look. The essential pieces to go for are body-conscious cocktail dresses and full-length gowns in saturated jewel tones. If you can find pieces with tailored details like bodice ruching and metallic embellishments, all the better.
