Newlywed Jennifer Lopez caused a major paparazzi meltdown at Versace as she wafted onto the multihued runway in a pearl-gray goddess gown that clung to her every curve.
Versace's collection could have been designed specifically for Lopez and her fellow members of the red-hot diva society. Severely form-fitting silhouettes in striking blues, violets and reds were the norm. The focus was on sensual details like rows of circular cutouts, lace-up closures and deep-plunging backs; fire-engine-red skirts were dotted with minute eyelets, while leather tops and grommet-trimmed dresses laced up provocatively in the back. Several eggshell suits and dresses provided a momentary chromatic respite before Donatella plunged into a series of pop-print floral dresses that could have sprung from a Warhol canvas. For evening there were low-waisted skirts with shimmering net overlays, embroidered tops, and a no-holds-barred beaded pink column.
To celebrate Lopez's wedding, Donatella threw a dinner bash at her Lake Como house, half an hour outside of Milanthe perfect conclusion to her high-octane presentation.
