September 11, 1999
The mood at the Versus show, which was set to the heart-pounding beats of electronic band Les Rythmes Digitales, was as sexy and extroverted as ever, with celebrities like Madonna, Rupert Everett, and Natasha Richardson seated front row center at the sleek ruby-red runway. White was the dominant color of the collection, accented with quick flashes of pink, gold, lime green, and Caribbean-colored floral prints. Slim, straight-leg trousers and short skirts were shown with slinky honeycomb tops and copper-zip jackets. Delicate embroidery, overlapping layers, lavish beading, and high-heeled boots complemented Donatella Versace's ultra-sexy silhouette.
