Free-spirit, wild heart, and creativity are three bold words that come into play when attending music festivals like Coachella and Gov Ball. Festivals like these, are where uninhibited spirit and hippy flair kicks off. Boho chic is the annual trendy fashion choice for care-free festival looks, consisting of a lot of light weight fabrics to keep you cool in the high temperatures. Here are a few runway looks inspired by free spirited summer music festivals!
Creatures of Comfort
Fashion week 2014 revealed inspired looks from different generations and cultures. One theme that was huge this year was mod fashion, inspired by the ladies of 1960s fashion. The mod subculture originated in London, England, and reached its peak when youths of the 1960s became the first generation to have a disposable income. They began buying stylish clothing, that broke them out of the middle class norm, and represented youthfulness, sexiness, and streamlined.
From Valentino to Saint Laurent, we saw mini-skirt hemlines and bright prints. We also saw knee high boots and knee length jackets that represented neat, sharp, and sexy.
It’s no doubt that fur was one of the hottest trends that graced the runway for Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week. From Tom Ford to Fendi, each designer brought distinct designs and colorful assets. We’re loving this bold and vibrant trend we can look forward to seeing for fall. After all, fur is the perfect piece to stay warm and look très chic on your way to your favorite show!

Lady Gaga definitely lives for the applause, isn’t that right? Today, we were all able to take a look at Versace’s most recent campaign, and yes, we loved it. The pop icon looks stunning wearing a long hair wig and a purple cut-away gown that make her seem just like the always stylish Donatella. Photographed by by Mert Alas, Gaga will be Versace’s face for summer and spring 2014.
We cannot wait to see the other ads that are about to be released. Music, Italian fashion, luxury and pop culture come all together to become one of the most successful campaigns of the upcoming seasons!
Whoever said that sports and fashion don´t get along, hasn´t obviously heard the latest news. And what are we talking about? Versace and Real Madrid have gotten together. The Italian Fashion House will be dressing up the Spanish football club this upcoming season and things couldn´t get any better. Versace designed several pieces made specially for official occasions. The club´s newest and most fashionable uniform ever includes a wool suit, a poplin shit, silk tie and an incredible pair of lace up derby shoes. Also, for the winter season, the Italian House designed an elegant black coat. So, guys, if you wan to get some free stuff from Versace, you better start thinking of joining a soccer team! And if that doesn´t work out, well, a golden credit-card never fails. NEVER.
Fashion and music are probably the two things than run the world. And when they mix together… KABOOM! Magic happens. Say “Hello!” to one of the coolest collections of the year. M.I.A and Donatella decided to have fun together and created the latest VERSUS VERSACE collaboration. And yes, we love it! Inspired by cool street-fashion, photographers and stylish bloggers, the rapper and the designer couldn´t have given us a better surprise. Pants, t-shirts and amazing outerwear are some of the incredible pieces that are part of the collection. Wanna be the new cool kid on the block? Wear Versus.
High fashion, supermodels, drugs, killer style that emphasize a woman’s curves and a murder at the hand of a spree killer sounds like the perfect making of a Lifetime show. The new series on Lifetime ‘House of Versace’ premiered last night, October 5th and has everyone at the feet of excitement. Based on Deborah Ball’s book “House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival” this film is about the empire that was built by Gianni Versace and after his death, his empire was taken care of by his sister Donatella. The house of Versace didn’t participate in the Lifetime movie and dismissed it in a recent statement as a ‘work of fiction.’ Though a work of fiction may be the defense of the house, Gina Gershon has the designer’s self-presentation down like no other. Her mannerisms, the indistinct approach to English, and down to the sound of her voice. She prepared for the role by smoking ‘one or two packs a day’ and in order to keep her face resembling Versace’s she used just a little bit of Scotch tape. It was all worth it, hey, its a TV Movie, she wanted to make sure she did it right.
Lifetime has just released an extended trailer of the must-watch original movie, House of Versace. According to Fashionista, “The movie… appears to cover every aspect of the Versace label’s history: From Donatella’s upbringing to Gianni’s death, to the rampant drug-use and the house’s money troubles.”
Gina Gershen plays Donatella Versace with striking resemblance and Italian sass in leopard furs and signature blonde hair.
The movie is set to premiere on October 5th.

It seems like Lady Gaga has been the subject of raving headlines lately (was she ever not?), as she graces the cover of Elle’s October issue! While on the cover she’s covered in silk and colorful raccoon fur, her spread inside the mag has her in more subtle pastel settings. Brandon Maxwell styles her in an all white body suit by Versace and a romantic furry skirt by Dres Van Noten.
On her album she commented, “I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie…, and I said, what would she want me to do right now? Well she’d want you to call Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson and Marina Abramović and Inez and Vinoodh…And that’s what I did!”
“Versace, Versace. We stay at the mansion when we in Miami”
You’ve probably heard that line because someone was singing it or maybe you were the one singing it.
In case you haven’t heard, the song is called “Versace” (obviously) by Drake and Migos.
But wait, what mansion is Drake exactly talking about in this song?
Does he stay at his mansion or Versace’s mansion?
Away from Drake though, this is about a damn mansion auction!
The mansion sizes out to 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms; and it also measures out to 23,000 square feet.
Here are a couple pics:
The auction is going to start at 25 million in September of this year.
