Resort is a season made for Donatella Versaceshe of the perpetual tan, white-blond locks, and, now that she's in such excellent shape, a less-is-more style of dressing. As she did for Fall, Versace kept her silhouettes sharp and clean (think A-line coats and dresses or nipped-waist safari jackets and cocktail numbers), adding visual pizzazz with eye-grabbing colors. For resort, that meant shocking pink and lemon yellow. She also played with prints, but not of the scarf-print variety favored by her big brother in the nineties. Her see-through floralsbold, oversize lilies and pansies that she called "X-rays"decorated bikinis, terry cover-ups, blouses, and one must-have cap-sleeve mini T-shirt dress.
