Versace Brings Heavy Metals

Hang on to the glitz for one more day. Milan Fashion Week completed its penultimate catwalk run today, with Versace's autumn and winter collections taking center stage. There was little to no accessorizing with jewelry—instead simple, striking dresses glinting with steel fibers provided all the flash. Tough leather bomber jackets and heavy silver buckles lent the models unflinching silhouettes that Donatella Versace noted were ideal figures for “powerful, strong, confident women." Femininity came in the form of silky draped dresses with eye-catching front plunges and peepholes. Farewell Milan, you'll soon be gone but not long forgotten.
