Will You Throw It Back With Vintage Versace?

-------

Scarf prints, bondage straps, studded leathers—fashion is having a vintage Versace moment. That fact hasn’t been lost on Donatella Versace herself: She brought the house down last month with a menswear show that paid homage to the motifs that her late brother Gianni made famous in the eighties and early nineties. Back then, glamazon supermodels—Gianni’s designs helped make Linda, Christy, Naomi, and Cindy household names—and celeb friends alike endorsed Versace’s singular brand of fearless sexuality. (Case in point: the infamous Elizabeth Hurley safety pin dress.)

These days, Lady Gaga is flying the Versace flag. In early June, the superstar told a reporter, “I’m wearing only Versace for, like, the next two months,” and Donatella opened up the house’s archives for her to oblige. Nor is La Gaga the only one feeling the maximalist urge. On recent runways like Givenchy’s and Mary Katrantzou’s as well as Versace’s own, bolder was better. And this November, the high street gets in on the action, too, with the launch of a Versace for H&M collection, which will reportedly reinterpret the house’s greatest hits.

Elizabeth Hurley’s Life-Changing Bikini

-------


A leather jacket donated by Sarah Jessica Parker, a TwentyTwelve playsuit from Sienna Miller’s closet, and a pink polka-dot bikini designed and modeled by Elizabeth Hurley are just three of the covetable lots in Celebrity Boutique, a new online charity auction that opens today. All proceeds from the ten-day sale will go toward funding research and treatment at London’s Royal Marsden hospital, an institution that, as well as being the world’s first dedicated cancer facility, has some serious fashion credentials: British Vogue editor in chief Alexandra Shulman is among its trustees. A word of advice: If you’re eyeing the black PVC pants Elle Macpherson donned for the season premiere of Britain’s Next Top Model in June, be ready for a little tailoring. Hospital insiders have been snapping pics of themselves in the donated clothes to post on the charity’s Twitter feed, and one not-particularly-short staffer confided glumly: “Elle’s trousers literally came up to my nose.”

Liz Hurley, Farmer? Actress Launches Organic Jerky And More

-------


“How do you like being a farmer?” was a question that cropped up more than once during Elizabeth Hurley’s personal appearance in Harrods Food Hall at noon yesterday. It’s true, she did give up London for country life some time ago—and her farm is a working farm—but she’s not exactly slopping the hogs or milking the cows. She has “people” for that. But beef raised chez Hurley has found its way into the jerky that is part of the range of organic snacks she launched yesterday. (The other new products were oat bars and fruit bars.)

The concept is low-cal and low-fat. As a longtime victim of futile fad diets, Hurley spoke with the voice of experience when she acknowledged, “It’s compulsory portion control. I’ve never been able to chop a Jaffa Cake in half and just eat one piece.” But the emphasis is equally on convenience. Subsequent products like soups and ready meals will be “ambient,” i.e., no refrigeration or heating necessary. There was certainly no need for heat in Harrods, where an outlandishly gorgeous Hurley met fans (some had come from as far afield as Belgium and Spain) in a strapless red dress by Carlos Miele. And her product labels depict her in an L.B.D. and hot pink
Wellies. We’ve come a long way from Green Acres, baby.

Von Unwerth, Unearthed

-------

Ellen von Unwerth doesn’t pick and choose. She loves all women. “There are many who are my favorites, from Claudia Schiffer to Eva Herzigova to Elizabeth Hurley to Lindsay Lohan,” said von Unwerth last night at Sloane Square’s Michael Hoppen Gallery during a private viewing of Fraulein, a collection of her rarely seen or published photographs. Von Unwerth continued, “They are all fun and they give a lot.”

That was evident in the sexy, girly photographs of von Unwerth’s array of beautiful subjects, all in various stages of undress with lots of lingerie, toys, and even the odd vegetable thrown in. There was Claudia with big hair in her underwear—an image eventually used for a Guess campaign; Kate Moss making horn-rimmed glasses sexy; and Monica Bellucci in nipple tassels. In “What recession?” news, several prints of Heidi, Kitzbuhel, the photographer’s racy take on the Alpine Miss in red stockings and garters, as well as Nadja Auermann in a mask, have all but sold out.

Liz And Jas Put Their Stamp On It

-------

Elizabeth Hurley and Jasmine Guinness have created one-of-a-kind family heirlooms they’d like to drop in the mail. It seems the models-turned-
mothers have been dabbling in art and crafts, and the results are a series of limited-edition stamps with pictures of their brood ready to stick on a letter. Starting today—attention eBay fans—the personalized postage goes on sale online, with all proceeds going to Women’s Aid. The timing of the sale corresponds with Mother’s Day in the U.K., and since you’ll need a British correspondent to actually use these stamps, we recommend making these the finishing touch on your own Mother’s Day card come May.
