Boy George spun blaring tracks, the runway shone bright with millions of light bulbs and Donatella Versace's junior girls trotted down the runway at full speed.

It was the typical Versus setup: high energy, plenty of attitude and all-out clothes that included skimpy zippered corduroy miniskirts, colorfully printed one-armed dresses and acid-pink rough-and-tumble furs. An explosion of yellow and orange skirts, triple-eyelet tops and paint-swirl coats preceded a series of off-the-shoulder, beaded and sheer black dresses that often revealed more than was necessary.

The spirit at Versus was fun and cool; still, at times one wished there would've been a clearer direction. While it's certain that Donatella Versace knows her way around a sexy outfit, parts of the collection lacked her usual bravado and sense of control.
