INTO THE ARCHIVES Gianni Versace SS||1994… Versus SS||2015

This is the dress that got Liz Hurley somewhat famous, even if the continues to be more known for that than for her acting career. In 1994 she accompanied her then boyfriend Hugh Grant to the premier of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral" launch creating a certain hysteria by wearing this extremely sexy outfit. The black Gianni Versace gown was made of very little fabric and many golden oversized gold safety pins placed at strategic places, that literally held the gown together [left]. Anthony Vaccarello draws inspiration from this dress when creating the Versus Versace collection for SS||2015 [right]. The young Italian designer is the newest creative collaboration between Donatella and new fashion talents for the Versus brand, which previously has collaborated with designers like Christopher Kane and J.W.Anderson.
