Spotted: This & That

Red Carpet Recap

Posted on: March 12, 2010

I am almost always a huge fan of Atelier Versace gowns. There is something about their light colored dresses with impeccable beading that I feel is so luminous and ethereal looking (despite how heavy they must be in actuality). Though not in the same vein of style and detail, Atelier Versace did concoct another winning look with Demi Moore at this year’s ceremony.

The dress is reminiscent of a Jim Hjelm wedding gown I had seen from their 08/09 collection and had fallen in love with (style # 8864).

With a skilled designer and seamstress, I think a tiered skirt like this is sophisticated and romantic, but also edgy in its non-traditional form.

Some other prior Atelier Versace looks that I have admired:

Beautiful, swirling colors in Rachel McAdams’ Oscar dress reminded me of circa 1970’s when tie-dye was the hip and hippie trend. It is also evocative of a classic Monet painting. Elie Saab fused these two themes, grunge and classicals, imitating color art but transforming it into something elegant and graceful.
