In recent times, Versace's fashion shows have undoubtedly taken the digital world by storm. During Milan Fashion Week S/S 2022 in September, it was none other than the face of the campaign, Dua Lipa, who both opened and closed a stunning show. This show was a true ode to Versace's signature style: tropical foulard silks, an explosion of neon colors, decorations with safety pins and here and there a seductive bit of uncovered skin.
A look back at iconic moments
In the S/S 2020 season, Jennifer Lopez made her appearance on the Versace catwalk dressed in a modern version of the chiffon jungle dress she wore at the Grammy Awards in 1999. This dress caused a veritable Internet revolution, forcing Google to launch its Image Search feature. Indeed, the design became the most searched term ever. Looking back, the S/S 2017 show commemorated the 20th anniversary of founder Gianni Versace's tragic death. This show paid homage to the legendary A/W 1999 catwalk show, where top models like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen stole the show while singing along to George Michael's 'Freedom! '90'.
