Last Night: Party Versace for H&M: Grand and Fabulous
Last night a mélange of notables, including A-lister, tastemakers, and fashion biggest names, descended to Hudson River’s Pier 57 to attend a special runway and party celebrating the Versace for H&M collaboration which hit stores on November 17.
The pier was temporally transformed into something of a Versace Mansion – read: GRAND and FABULOUS. It featured a runway as well as a makeshift stage for the VIP revelers to enjoy the festivities. The wooden paneled catwalk was paved with gold designed to resemble and mimic Versace’s iconic motif. And, where top-models including Abbey Lee, Daphne G, Natasha Poly, Sean O’pry and Lindsay Wixson strutted their hot bodies to showcase the collection. Normally, a presentation with top models would be enough for this type of party but this is Versace. No ordinary brand! Obviously, after the runway show – PRINCE and Nicki Minaj performed. Muthafucking PRINCE. Obviously, this was the party of all parties.
“It was the perfect evening, so glamorous and special. I loved celebrating the launch of Versace for H&M here in New York, an iconic city in which to showcase this iconic collection. Now I cannot wait for it to finally reach stores and be available to the world,” gushed Donatella Versace. Ms. Versace was joined a rarefied group celebrities including Uma Thurman, Blake Lively, Linda Evangelista, Chace Crawford, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson, Selma Blair and Ke$sha all of whom were dressed in head-to-toe Versace for H&M.
